Romantic advice dating
I checked in with him a few days later, and he told me what he had been up to, and that he planned go on a road trip with friends that weekend. A few days after that I sent another text, and came in a little hotter this time, basically saying I’d love to go out again if he’s free. I desire to be in a loving, committed relationship with a guy I can also call my best friend. It’s tough for me to meet men who I think are worth my time and energy.
I also don’t deal with rejection well, so it takes a lot for me to accept someone into my life with the possibly of being hurt.
But when I DO deem a man worthy of my time, I’m all in. In the last year, I’ve dated/seen/hung out with (however you want to phrase it) three men. And although each situation was different, they all ended with the guy basically telling me he didn’t see me in his future.
Guy one was just a complete coward; we started as friends, explored a little more and then right when I decided to open my heart to him romantically, he freaked out and said he couldn’t “handle having a girlfriend right now.”Guy two was totally enthralled with me, at first; he was good looking and charming, but was not the type of guy I generally go after.
“The dating world is competitive and few people have the time to constantly pursue someone who is not demonstrating any interest,” says Anderson.
“Stop playing these silly games and show a little interest back.
I also tend to put him first, sacrificing my dreams and compromising my wants for him. But here’s the thing - my lifestyle and attitude portrays that I don’t NEED a man.There’s a super fine line between wanting and needing a man, and I haven’t figure it out yet.I feel like a young woman as outgoing, independent and attractive as myself should have men fawning over her.So he was sent the follow up text later that night, and we both agreed on going out again soon. Just wondering if it's better if I wait a few weeks or do it as soon as possible. For initial context: I’m a 26F living in a large metropolitan city in the PNW.He continued to talk to me for two more days, then disappeared. But either way at the very least I hope to keep her as a friend. It comes and goes in waves but I very much struggle with being single.
