I’m dating people and trying to see a better side of dating.
How can I tell if he is withdrawing or losing interest? After exchanging messages for a couple of weeks and a phone meeting, we met in person. From that first meeting 3 weeks ago up until the week of Valentine's Day, he would text me every day. We ended up seeing each other at least 2x a week since meeting. I didn't contact him the following week because I know that V-day can be weird for people and I didn't want to freak him out.
Whether it was to say hi, tell me about his day, wish me a happy day, set up our next date, or send me silly videos or articles he thought I might like, we were in contact daily. Each time we saw each other we had a great time (he would always send a text later telling me how much he enjoyed our time together and was looking forward to the next time). I made plans to spend that evening with my girlfriends.
It's a recipe for drama and heartache when you assume a role of a girlfriend when he himself clearly hasn't used that word to describe you.
I know What You Think: Will He Become Emotionally Available If You Act Like A High-Value Woman?
They unknowingly sabotage the potential for having a great relationship before it even gets off the ground.
Men and women both make mistakes during this stage that ruin their chances of creating a real relationship.
But the fact that we already have and he wants to but doesn’t is concerning. I even wondered if he was married, had a STD, or was gay even, which I know he is not.
He told me that he had not dated anyone else since he and I were intimate (for the last time in early May), which I find hard to believe because of the things that he says do not match his actions. I’ve tried and I’ve pushed and put masculine energy out there for way too long, and I know it, and I’ve finally just backed off and for once have not initiated contact with him in over a week.
What you say is true and I do believe in your method, although maybe too late for the one I am or have been pining for lol…which I’m sure you would say, Read it again dummy you don’t get it! My story is that I met what I thought was an amazing guy and actually thought he could be the one…scary thoughts for me but I just bought everything that he was saying and believed him right away.
We were intimate pretty early on and things were moving fast but I really thought, Ok this is how it goes!
There is no need to also bring the subject "where is this going" or "are we exclusive?
