Dating unavailable men psychology
Let me know how that conversation goes.“Plus as a woman who likes sex, what the hell am I going to tell this guy if I don’t like the sex? All you people who are focused on “test driving” the car, I get it. But that’s the thing about dating: you have TWO PLUS YEARS to figure out if you want to get married.
Sexual compatibility is one of many factors you’ll have to consider in determining your future.
But choosing a boyfriend is a considerably lower bar to jump than choosing a husband.
You “sex first” people act as if you have to have sex before commitment or else. Or else you’d discover after a month that you have different libidos, or that he isn’t great at cunnilingus?
If you expect to fall in love in 30 days on Match, you’ll be disappointed.
(Unless, of course, he’s a psycho who would lie to your face to get laid – and I’m suggesting most normal men would rather find another woman than to do that.) “There is a shaming of women for wanting to have sex.”From whom? As I said in my original post, “I’m not remotely judgmental of those who have sex without commitment.” Hell, I’ve had a lot of sex without commitment. Waiting for some arbitrary time period has never been the point.If you think she’s playing games to “catch” you, then nothing I can do will convince you.But if you had a great connection with a confident woman who told you that she doesn’t like the idea of you going home to write to other women online after you have sex, you would insist to her that you DO have the right to do that?I’ve only done this twice before: once, in a post defending Lori Gottlieb’s “Marry Him,” and a second time, in a post explaining my opposition to Rori Raye’s “Circular Dating.” These were the only two times that I remember being equally frustrated at how something was being misconstrued that I needed to take an hour and go through a bullet point by bullet point dissection of my original thesis.Now I know that writing this is not going to change a thing. First of all, here was the premise of my original post:“You want to find out if a man is serious about you? If you don’t – because you’re a liberated woman who can have sex whenever you damn well please – don’t be too surprised if a decent percentage of those men never call again.
