Dating two months
And her frustration is what spurred me to write today’s post. You imply that you should get rid of the guys that don’t call regularly and make it obvious that they want to date and pursue a relationship and yet in the book you mention that you didn’t take your wife on a proper date for the first 4 weeks and how great she was that when you did call she was nice and said yes to whatever you proposed doing…and you ended up married….which is why women put up with flaky guys and “bad behavior”, holding out hope that it will change and turn into something serious. Or do you move on to the next guy because this one isn’t making much of an effort? But if Tanya is finding this grey area to be a bit too grey, then I have to acknowledge that perhaps I can do a better job of explaining it. So why does a man only call or text you once a week to make plans? If he expresses no interest in escalating the intensity of the relationship… So don’t worry about how much you like him, how strong your feelings are, or anything like that. Did they “see you” once a week for six months and suddenly declare their love? Potential boyfriends act like potential boyfriends. So give a guy 6-8 weeks to figure out his feelings, if necessary. For some people the 4 weeks turns into 4 months without them noticing and by then they’re in that pattern…and the behavior becomes acceptable yet unfulfilling and it’s too late to change it because you’ve been the “nice”, undemanding girl the whole time. Why is a man perfectly content only seeing you once every two weeks? Just evaluate your man on the effort he’s making for you. And if you don’t get the sense that the relationship is growing, the talk is brief and emotionless: “Hey Adam, it’s been fun getting to know you, but I get the sense that we’re not on the same page. There’s a huge difference between giving a guy six weeks to choose you over the other women he’s dating… You win this one by assessing his efforts and concluding that you’re wasting your time.She thought we had so many things in common and that I treated her exactly as she'd want someone to treat her.She was adamant about the fact that she thought I'd never done anything wrong (quite the opposite).I was really starting to think there was long-term potential here.

As it turned out, I couldn't meet until the night after and we agreed to do that.Later that night, I decided it wasn't worth putting myself through the agony of anticipation for two days, so I decided to call her. In her mind, I had all of the qualities she had ever wanted in a guy.Most people naturally dress and behave to impress in the beginning.As you go, however, it is important to see one another accurately and get to know one another on a deeper level.
