i got a really cute girls number online yesterday in the middle of the day checked it when i got home and texted her after which wasn’t until 8., seemingly out of nowhere, she switches and starts wanting to change everything – he was happy with how it was before… in fact, he was in that type of relationship because it was what he wanted. Here's exactly why she's acting the way she is and how to stop it! don’t want a solution… they want to fight about something. i’m 32, have a great job, stay in shape, etc. if she likes you, then you can start experiencing the connection you so desire. now balance all you know about yourself and mold your image into who or how you want to be seen by everyone around you..etcAsk a guy: the more distant i act, the more interested he becomes. we went out to a movie perhaps two weeks later, at one point i asked her if she reciprocated my feelings, she told me that she had actually gotten back with her old boyfriend from her junior year and that she and i were just friends, i was taken aback but who wouldn’t? i told her i was going home to get some sleep. it is a long road but after 7 years we are making it happen because our love overpowers everything. bothers me the most , is that i experienced all of the above mentioned 7 years ago and breaking with her tore me apart. you get a girl’s number and then do nothing with it! generally won’t know what you’re thinking or feeling unless you can calmly and rationally explain it to them. and for a 4 day silent run, i call him out, and now he’s talkative and wants to explain?, her strategy changed a bit with the new guy she has been with for over a year. some even blame it on their “time of the month”. then go back inside yourself and find the things you know about yourself that no one outside you can see or know, unless you let them. used to come up to me when he was lonely and tell me he loved me and ask why i had disappeared. again that is your life and the woman you were with life. note what eric said about being comfortable in knowing that “she’s not interested in hooking up with other guys. i look at this as a clarification of my points, you look at it as an argument. at the other hand- i absolutely despise secrets and behavior that causes secrets to accumulate. she asked me again when we were walking to my car if there was anything we could do and i said not to worry about it and another time. but it’s like… there’s a certain amount of time and energy that i can put into a particular thread before it comes down to an “agree to disagree” situation. she will then distance herself or let you down easy so she avoids hurting your feelings. he is no longer as desireable now and well rounded and beautiful women arent easily available because of his age. asked to kiss… (my point being that he was always making the moves). he says he respects that and still makes comments here and there. am guilty of number 2 for one hundred and ten percent. i don’t know too many women who would be comfortable of seeing somebody once a week for company and sex and it still not going anywhere after 6months! my question is, should i (although you don’t like this vocab) continue to be a nice lady to text him without wanting anything from him since he wants and actually have expressed that he wants to hear from me more. you’re confused and frustrated, annoyed and angry, and yet, you can’t leave her or walk away from her because she knows just what to say and do to dig her nails deeper into your heart. we are still working on coming to that “middle” ground. they say to marry your bestest of best friends and she is all that we use to be so close and we kno everything about each other but in the last week it seems that we are not that close anymore. and there’s nothing out of integrity for a guy to be ok with just hooking up and keeping things light and focused on hooking up. then she attempted to see if she could get back with me. at the same time, i cant have him mistaken, thinking im “needy”. second, what does being emotionally “deep” have anything to do with physical pleasure…. was all things combined and my frustration to that "cool" part., if a girl’s alone in a house with a stranger, she’s usually down to get a little intimate. this point, my last text was pretty much a goodbye. it you can change to just friends or acquatnce you know it doesnt have to be bad if you dont want it. out of know where…you’re knees deep finding your self in quick sand hard to get out. know how it feels when the girl is into you.’s not eric blaming women, it’s just him sharing his insight. i just wanted things to be comfortable and not go down a bad path. sometimes a dude gives a girl a shot and… he’s just not feeling it. but that’s probably because she leads on most guys she dates and doesn’t like calling them her ex boyfriends. eric is just providing a dose of reality to the ladies who let their guards down to find them in a mess with a guy. article advocates that men like a “sweet spot,” which, the way you describe it, occurs after the couple has been in a sexual relationship for a while. relationships are hard and they often don’t work out even with people’s best intentions but it doesn’t mean that they aren’t worth it. then again she started with the “i am in, i am out” routine several times. thing not posted as an answer is that she is just looking for a friend with benefits. sometime you go about life minding your own business not thinking about love, holding your grounds and standards and then bam! i’m going to run through the warning signs your girlfriend will give out over several weeks/months which will indicate that she’s getting bored and ready to move on. that way you would not have to worry about maintaining “stasis”. you would have to be one hell of a man. she refocuses women onto themselves and to stop blaming men for being jerks because we pick them etc. fwb’s are messy cuz someone always falls for the other one. sometimes we meed the right people when we are not emotionally ready, then sometimes we meet people who aint so emotional ready when we actually got things together and are ready. this is because from a psychological perspective, human self-esteem is only partly created from it’s own internal processes, the rest of it is based on affirmation from the external world of peers, social groups etc. i should have prefaced everything with thanks for your honesty. she may not always throw herself at you when both of you meet up in person. [read: 12 signs a girl is just using you for all the wrong reasons]. and debating whether something is fair or “right” is irrelevant… people do what they want and every individual is going to ultimately follow their wants and desires. lots of fishes buddy, respect is the ultimate key and dont care super much or youll get hurt super much, untli you know she cares alot about you. here to learn more about what i can do for you. you are just being emotional and taking things personally instead of rationally handling your dating situation. it sounds like you want to keep her on the hook, but be free to play the field at the same time. then i have to flirt with her and go for a kiss, like i would on any other date. as i mentioned earlier, ‘the more distant…’ that work, i really agree because it happens to girls too. the very least, i’m glad to have anyone (man or woman) thinking about how to have a better relationship. you are just in a giving relationship than a mutual one. i would be happy to tell them that they had a more effective approach than me and i would even modify the article and credit them. someday i want a wife and kids, but not today….) people started referring to me as his girlfriend but i feel awkward because he doesn’t. if anything it’ll be one of those very long tossled salad bowl experience mixed with jealousy, resentment, confusion, hurt, with little flakes of enjoyment then drenched with heartache. we ended up doing that for another hour or so, and then she invited me back to her place to watch a movie. i’ve kicked him to the curb several times, at which point he tries real hard and i give in.’m not bothered by any of these kinds of comments because i know my intentions are good and, frankly, if someone has a more effective approach then i’d love to hear it.’ve been talking to a man for 6 weeks and dating for 5 weeks. rule: “if i like a woman, i have to go for a kiss by the end of the 1st or 2nd date. simple, send her flirty messages that will strike intrigue and make her think sexual thoughts. rule: “if i like a girl at all, i have to invite her to hang out 1-on-1. if you throw it out there and she declines, it’s not a big deal. generally speaking, it fizzles out as one party starts to want more, or it becomes apparent that without the emotional depth it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. she acted like a person that was really interested in the past. i am at this time meeting this guy and he also slowly backs off. the one hand, if i guy straight up told a girl that he wants a relationship with her (when he really doesn’t) just to get casual sex, then i think that’s wrong and despicable behavior. i want to be more “coupley” with him, but the more i do that the more he backs off, and the more i back off the more he comes to me. eventually, she may just give you the cold shoulder or date someone else. i’v had my share of dating and not short of options. casual hook up scenes are a ‘norm’ only to players. you should tell the ladies that you dont intend for the relationship to ever grow into anything real upfront then. including saying stuff like "all men are like puppies, that want to hump everything". make it clear from the get-go… some are happy with the arrangement and continue, some aren’t interested and they move on (with no hard feelings on either side). thank you feminism (not that i’m a fan/not a fan of feminism, but women fought hard to live in an age where they could have sex freely when they wanted and with who they wanted). lot of you come to me saying, “i don’t have any potential women in my life. your dates never turn romantic, a woman starts to question the sexual connection. you’re mind will tell you otherwise, just insist of finding reasons why you are worthy of positive male attention and find evidence in your life why you are worthy. i have noticed that some have a way of acting like they want one, just so they get the casual sex! she convinces you that you’re very important to her and that she needs you. guys don’t realize how easy it can be to get a girl’s number. i'd assume she met someone then, but from your previous thread on this topic she was acting distant to begin with.” still, you can’t always count on getting those hints even when she’s ready. a few years ago, a smart, wise and usually stoic friend of mine (a man who had been a horn dog in his youth) actually choked up when talking about a woman he had hurt because he tried to keep the booty call going while sensing she would have liked more if he gave it to her. i think the best advice women should take is not to sleep with any man early on in the piece, to avoid confusion and to garner information about the man’s motivations before taking such a step. have to understand… that’s why i write this column. i still dont know what he wants in this relationship. sometimes you have to back your words with your actions as well. other night i hung out with a girl i’ve been talking to off and on for a little over a month. after that, i still like him in a same way so i put more effort (actually i am more friendly kind of person: i like giving/receiving small texts) and became a person who now starts conversation. some in their 20s, some in their 30s, some in their 40s. took me years to get over her then just last year she emailed me. she doesn’t communicate that she wants something different or that she isn’t happy, then there is absolutely no reason that the guy is “wrong” for being content with that arrangement – if she seems fine and he’s fine, then there is no reason to assume there’s a problem. i loved what he did for me–what he gave me as an incredible unselfish lover. bad scene all the way around and it could have been avoid with open, honest talk. it’s simply what a guy would call: a booty call girl, a cool girl to hook-up with without drama or … no-strings attached sex. learned it the hard way and thought i’d share my experience. just want to know if he love me or not because i am getting confused. however, he’s acting like we’re in a relationship. she may even get naughty over the phone or have phone sex with you. however, after dinner he asked if i’d be interested in walking the mall with him to chat more. shows me love an care whenever he wants to have sex and i always fell for it and. that was my first and up untill now only love. the passion that is usually seen from a girl that really likes me just wasn't there. someone help me with some advice because i know this can only end badly but my body won’t give it up. i heavily consider what i’m sharing when i share my inner thoughts with the readers. i prefer to do what is being done / talked about. and i feel that flirtations between has been cutted, i’m somehow sadden by the change after change. no woman wants to be a booty call except perhaps a married woman who has to stay in the relationship for her kids /financial reasons but needs sex and for some reason can’t have it with her husband/father of her children. over ,000 in prizes has already been given out to active posters on our forum. goal is to share a viewpoint without ego (as much as possible) so that women can better understand the men they’re with and ultimately have better more fulfilling relationships.
then the next morning he texts me saying how much he appreciates what i did for him,and that most ppl wouldnt care. after accepting that i couldn’t change his mind i told him i could no longer be friends with him as it was too painful. so earlier this summer i started talking/dating this girl that i knew about and was fond about. really am on the hook, dang and i just saw an episode on himym and yeah, great day, lol. always asked a guy/gal what they’re looking to get out of it, in that way, you don waste you valuable time. right now i’m going nuts, and i feel so stupid and used. i have backed off before and given him his space ,and it worked . this was the start of our on/off casual relationship that lasted for a little over a year. truth is that her theory is based on an assumption that everyone is so sure about what they want when involved with someone. had he not shown any interest in wanting to maintain a friendship, i would’ve walked away. i declined sex while we were kissing only, clothes on……by saying i like you, but i wanna get to know you better. now there’s no reason why she’s doing this, except that she’s bored with your personality now… there’s no spark, excitement or mystery (cheesy word by very true). if you think you know better (and you might, i’m not being sarcastic here), go for it your way. last night after reading this i wrote a loving and thoughtful short note explaining to my “about to be a 1x a week” guy that i love him as a man but just can’t do it. is then, that you feel ready for an amazing man and all those who are less than, just don’t captivate you.’s just so hard when i get to see him, i try to think we’re just friends and profession colleagues, but there’s something strong that stirs up in me. you were supposed to meet or she didn’t answer the phone after multiple calls or she came home late (if you’re living with her) from a night out without telling you she was out for the night (this is common courtesy, not a father daughter complex) then makes lame excuses as to why she didn’t call etc… this is a big warning sign. not that anything really justifies cheating, but i “understand” why he cheated, all motives aside. if you like the sweet spot, simply say so — simply say “i want to see you but don’t want a relationship. you lose you only lost something small, you win you can build upon more things more meetups dates, hangouts, etc. sometimes they’ll actually get into bed with a girl and just cuddle all night. woman fooled me into me thinking she loved me but then all of the suddenly dumped me. doesn’t know she’s been going out with me for so long. love is there, and that’s the ultimate goal for most people, but it requires patience and a bit of discrimination. i can have an easy, casual, sexual relationship without it getting complicated or having to deal with all the turmoil, hassles and annoyances of being in a relationship. mean, from a girl’s point of view, we constantly like the idea of falling in love and going into a stable & loving relationship, maybe that’s the gene in women, but i thought that all human being are the same on that basis? hate spam and promise to keep your email address safe. i love your site it has it has been a great decoder for my relationships! if you do not want a relationship then find a woman who also do not want a relationship. i’ve know women who have been through “phases” after breaking up a relationship or marriage who did in fact hook up with all kinds of guys in various ways, with a “main” guy serving as the one who they are really hooked on. we have an amazing time, we say what we think, we know what we want.. you text or talk on the phone for weeks or months. if you want to call it an argument… cool, you win.’s even possible that the guy before me treated her that way because she did the same stuff to him. i had to tell her i was agnostic so she would be more accepting. she finally breaks up with you because you didn’t read the signs and do something about it… boohoo. you want to show her how similar you are and how you both love the same things. he said he was giving me “space” but he just had to tell me something (insert irrelevant excuse to text me). and let’s face it, isn’t the aim for most women and men alike a long-term of committment of sorts? i love her with all my heart and will do anything for her. but i end up showing mixed signals because at the same time i want him to know i like him.. if i don’t message or call he won’t seem to be bothered… he will just message me once in 2-3 days and just ends up after few texts… so i will message him or call him daily but sometimes i feel i am losing my self-respect by doing the things opposite to my character…(coz i am not a type of girl who initiate conversation with anyone).) you’re admitting that she would have a problem with being in the “sweet spot” and therefore he’s not going to say anything. was seeing a man for 6 months when something like this started to happen.’s important is simply this: you are single until you both, clearly and explicitly, agree that you’re in an exclusive relationship. i am not really sure why guys would think stringing a girl along is a situation that should never come to some sort of repercussion. men i know who “use” women for booty calls are, even in little ways, sadder for having done so, whether they know it or not. i’m just going to keep working on myself to continue to become stronger and more confident., i could try to convince you of all the reasons why you should stop listening to your scumbag brain. not that i’m saying if a girl is sleeping with other men right off the bat they are wrong. a man behaves like that, he definitely likes you. then she and you can both movie on; she to find a deep and lasting relationship and you to find a willing partner for your once a week ‘booty call’. so they overcompensate and protect themselves by pretending to be unavailable. but he changed a lot now we’re only texting once or twice a day, but its ok i understand. the only person responsible for our own emotions are ourselves. this time, she knows whether or not you’re a romantic prospect. proponent of chivalry and romance, vinod srinivas sees himself as a gregarious gentleman with an active imagination, who still manages to spend more time livi. we easily fall in love and we want “the boyfriend ” so close to us like “best friends “. even the i am a woman, i like the sweet spot too. i think it hurt because it was so cold and disconnected, and not because it was over. she’s expecting you to go for a kiss on a date. i think commitment is just not for everybody–not that people have not necessarily not found the right person. as soon i started drawing the boundaries around my body when engaged in the dating scene, the men with less than savoury motivations dropped off where they belonged, and the genuine men looking for relationships stepped in. if she’s not voicing a concern, i’m going to do what makes me happy. we het caught up in our words like should, could, lets. for the most part, men and women are good and for i’ve found that men are eager to make me happy and don’t try to do anything but their honest best. was making me feel uneasy and felt like the "this isn't gonna work out" speech from her could have come at any time. you have to understand – i put myself out there knowing full well what i’m saying. okay, so i ain’t the most experienced dater or move maker but i extended my hand to hold hers during the move and she took it. (yes i am the type of girl to hold off because i want to show my boyfriend how much he means to me). at one point she even said that i am "too affectionate". you waited until she was confused and hurt and pulling away to then put in effort and pull her back into the space where you wanted her– a space that you knew in your heart was a dead end for her. she would push me away, so i’d distance my self and leave her alone, then she’d come to me all down and saying she felt so vulnerable, and i wanted to take her in my arms. then, the moment i ask them what their effective, actionable solution to something is… they go silent. i haven’t had sex with him and i’m not rushing into that because i know how i operate. it’s doing women disservice to keep telling them this myth that they have no control over their emotions after sex. i understand what your saying but my situation is a little different. start small watch the show, dont go all the way for something your still watching. a couple of days she then told me she had been dating a semi-friend of mine for a while (while flirting with me), and that on a dinner date with wine that i had arranged for us (after she insisted on it).’s very easy to pinpoint a girl who’s just toying with your heart. if you hold on to the relationship any longer, it may just be too darn late and too darn hard. i m not saying go out there and start hooking up right this instant, but just dont think of sex as anything emotional or deep or meaningful for a moment but just a very pleasing human interaction. it comes to men, the answer is in his actions. is happening to me right now and has been happening to me over the past year. we re past times that marriage and family is the one social construct, look at divorce rate now that cheating is not socially acceptable anymore. by knowing how she actually feels, you’ll remove the uncertainty that imprisons you. if i stop enjoying it, he knows i’ll end it. far as clarity and despair are concerned, i’ve talked to a lot of guys who carry around bad feelings about their booty call relationships precisely because they had shut down their consciences and empathy to keep them going. he’s a single dad, i’m a single mom so we both were in no rush. he has expressed that he is starting a new career and is not in the head space to start a new relationship, but that i am exactly what he is looking for , i am perfect, his friends say he should marry me…blah…blah …blah…i hear from him about every two weeks now…that he needs and wants to see me, he misses me, that we can make this better, that he chooses me and this is his answer ( to my relationship question) but, there is never any follow through. this isn’t about me, it’s about helping the audience be as effective as they can be in their love life.’s no respect on her side and she feels as though she doesn’t need to be courteous with you because you’re a pushover. well we had a nice conversation a good time and told each other we’d chill later on because she was home for a while. i’m saying is that a woman shouldn’t have to feel shame from whatever sexual choice she wants to make for herself – it doesn’t equate to not having self-respect or respect for her body. i’m not saying that is your intention, but as a female that is how we will read this type of behavior. i know he’s never had a friend like me before who actually understands him, despite him being extremely popular. i stayed faithful in my heart and physically in an uncommitted relationship, simply because the passion never died for years…he on the other hand ruined it by getting in a committed relationship. both of you may be intensely attracted to each other, but she still calls you a good friend even as all your friends wonder what’s going on. i say goodbye or stay with him even though he will be with someone else? or better yet just call her so you can hear her voice and judge her mood as you talk and know when to swerve the convo left or right. because we have a really dynamic friendship as of right now and he loves me as a friend. i have come to terms with the fact that only i will ever be able to know myself and also that i can never know anyone else completely..I don’t know a single hookup that hasn’t ended in tears, fears, jealousy or outrage on behalf of one person who eventually wanted more or whose needs were not met by the flimsy arrangement. i sent a short text that said “i just dropped it off, grab it before it gets stolen. they believe you need to have an amazing, one-of-a-kind, hour-long conversation. feel bad for them and sometimes i’m able to common ground with them, so long as they’re willing to pop out of their habits and just recognize they’re talking to an actual, rational person who is willing to discuss things like an adult. thank you for sharing what goes through a guys mind. sure it may hurt a bit and it may not seem fair, but it is what it is.’m glad he is honest however he says don’t manipulate…? seeing how what i have been doing has been working i’m going to keep doing that. i read that book so many times i broke the binding. we are usually together on the weekends as we live 50 miles apart. sounds like she was playing games, and is dumbfounded that you're not into games. interpretation didn’t matter, cognitive behavioral psychology wouldn’t work. well i didn’t but when she came home from her college break i asked her to dinner and a movie at the local mall.’s fine if you don’t agree, but i’m not really here to argue what point of view you like hearing. of course, it feels really nice to hear from her and hear the sweet and sexy things she says, but you do know deep inside that all this is going nowhere. because seriously after a while you feel like a fool even though you love that person! but she’d still lean in, wrap her arms around you and kiss you to make you feel better! you also have no idea whether or not she’s interested, that’s just your insecurity speaking. or, you’re just plain oblivious to the “green lights” you’re getting from women. question is if i stated to the man (if and when we decide to become intimate) before we start the act to say hey i know i’ll fall and i will want something more than just fwb scenerio. enough of the ‘imaginery relationships’, as they will just do your head in. but she’s had a different interpretation and resents me for “making her think i wanted a relationship. we have great physical chemistry but i’m not ready to take it there for many past and present reasons such as 1st time going to his place, want exclusivity and to get to know him better.!” but he basically ruined everything by telling me that i should know my feelings in the future. girl who leads you on is like an addiction you can’t get rid of. must not be use to guys doing this to her. asked for the break-up but now i feel like i was the one who got dumped, relationships, 28 replies. it’s not because he had this evil intent to greedily use her and discard her.. gosh, if we hadn’t talked it out in the beginning i would have been walking around dazed and confused. it was this post sim, your words that resonated with me and opened my eyes to the fact that i deserve more than this and i respect myself enough to walk away. some enraged women say here in brazil, “homenzinho de merda” -“shitty little guy”. you don’t have to advertise this fact… heck, you don’t even need to be dating someone else….
