Thanks for commenting, please come back soon! It shouldn't be immediately obvious, but she needs to show me her weak side for me to even consider her for a LTR. Girls can date around as much as guys can, but it hits a primitive trigger in a man's mind that tells him that girl isn't LTR material. We can argue all day about double standards, but at the end of the day, men will still judge women by this.
My recent post Puja — Dana Pt. Hmmm, re 2, I hear that, it makes sense.
But do you want to see the vulnerability up front, or after a bit? Like she's tough to start, but then you get in there and work your magic and suddenly there's a glimmer of vulnerability? VI, haha I just spent time on your blog where you proudly describe hearing a girl say she wants sex in a monogamous relationship, then you bang her without making a commitment. Fair enough, that's on her. But come on, that girl is crazy to be doing that, especially since you have a couple of booty calls going on the side at all times.
That girl should say NO. And she should be prepared to walk. Because, as it stands right now, you are a terrible risk for a LTR. A girl definitely shouldn't be tough during our first meeting. That's a huge red flag that she's either too manly, or has been hurt too many times.
She should be confident without being tough. Julia Roberts is a good example. As for her vulnerability, you're right, it should come a bit later. But if it hasn't been revealed either before or immediately after I have sex with a girl, I assume she's not LTR material. I actually like that girl a lot and would consider making her 1, but the fact that she plays games is a huge strike against her. In her case, she should have shown me her vulnerability earlier and let me know that she was enthusiastic about us.
Fair enough, but don't be too hard on her for game playing. We're striking out in all directions, trying to find a way to stay afloat. And you can bet she is getting absolutely terrible advice from her friends. If you give her some indication of your real feelings, my guess is that she will chill. I am not saying that this is bad advice, just a little context from a male perspective is required.
Nothing will make a worthwhile man turn off faster.
7 Ways to Turn Your Hookup Into a Boyfriend
This point is completely wrong. If a woman I am dating goes out with another man I will assume she is not interested and its over. I also believe that this percentage will be heavily skewed towards the men you think are worth marrying. Nearly every worthwhile man has been wasted months of his life chasing a woman who used his sexual interest to extract money and favours. Otherwise I will assume that she has no sexual interest and is just stringing him along. It sounds like you are not into playing any games whatsoever, and I give you a lot of credit for that. Re 5, this is a tough one, because men and women have different goals.
Women want men to commit before sex, and men want sex before committing. I guess I feel that if a guy does not want to be exclusive, the woman should take him at his word and keep her options open. I agree that the last thing a woman should do is make a man feel insecure when she is hoping for a relationship. Re 7, I agree. So I hear you — a woman should be sexual for one man. This is the balance that is so tricky to find.
A woman should not even consider being sexually loyal to a man who shows signs red flags of playing the field. Susan, Your advice is fantastic and makes me feel better. My only concern is when you say guys like wholesome. Maybe it would be better to say to dress for yourself and not just for a guy? I just dislike being told that men like only wholesome girls when I like wearing winged eyeliner and feel very uncomfortable in GAP clothing. It makes me feel, and probably other girls like me, like I barely got a shot. Having a style of your own is awesome — I love the vintage look!

By all means, go for the eyeliner and leave the baggy Gap clothing! Amy How do you feel about sex-positive feminism encouraging women to totally objectify themselves? Why would you not expect scientific rigor from a business person? Have you no respect for economists?
As a strategic analyst, I had to provide evidence to back up my conclusions — clients paying a million bucks a year for consulting services prefer it. I had to learn that the hard way. I thought i was a big enough girl to handle that but im not. These suggestions are all good advice. Having a positive attitude is very invaluable but probably the most difficult when your experiences all point to more confusion. Sometimes however i get a little lonely and would find it refreshing to be able have a little intimacy with protection with someone on a regular basis without it leading to total committment.
I mean, if he wanted to see other women, it would be fine with me because im a busy person and not quite sure how or when i will be ready to dive back in to marriage. But dont broadcast it to me. Is this too much to ask for? Marie Honestly, I think a lot of guys would welcome such an arrangement. Maintain your sense of humor because guys find that attractive. Also, in relationships i like to take things slow. Im very affectionate and personable but I like to make people feel comfortable and laugh and have a good time and I think that takes time. So it seems like im contradicting myself.
I know what i want; i just dont know how to explain it to a guy without coming off as just a booty call or wanting to have a committment.
He ended with deceiving other people that he had their best interest in mind and not their dollars. The movie connected with the target audience in a way and established something that is missed here. Thank u so much for that it tought me a lot. I did wear my heart on my sleeves in was emotional about guys at times…but do to ur tips im much better in i have steped up my game. This is some good advice. However, the most important aspect of getting a guy is not covered: Men are attracted to what they see primarily. This should be the top of the list. Grooming, clothes, a little makeup, etc.
Check out my new blog for more: A guy who likes you is going to want to make out with you as much as he can, and also spend time with you getting to know you better. It sounds like this guy is interested in just making out with as many girls as he can, always moving on to the next, and not getting attached to anyone.
My advice is to not be available the next time you hear from him. I am not too sure about this. I think it depends on the guy. Some guys are a bit avoidant and when things get close they tend to back off for a little while, those are the guys who you probably dont want to wear your heart on your sleeve with. There are guys however who are comfortable with having someone depend on them and depending on somebody else. Then when you have an idea of how capable he is of meeting your needs legitimate ones, that is you can begin to show your feelings for him.
I think its absolutely okay to text him first occasionally. Or even occasionally ask to hang out. Alot of people think that doing this makes him not like you. Now if you are always the one doing all the work and he is making no effort whatsoever, then its bad to keep bothering him because lets face it if he likes you he will make an effort to see you, especially if you indicate your interest by talking to him first.
Pursuing needs to be at least , if its then someones feelings are probably getting hurt. They love giving gifts and express their love for people through treating them the way that they want to be treated. If you give him too much, he will take a passive role. Let him pursue and invite you and then give him little things in return. For instance, wait to cook for him until he has proven his worthiness and brought you out on a few dates. I frequently hear about women cooking and cleaning for a man.
Unless you've married each other, refrain from making this a habit. Other women before you have learned the hard way. If you need to, channel that giving spirit towards baking for your friends or doing charity work. Give men something to invest in. Men get bored easily by easy women. However, if you encourage him to call you, texting back, "That sounds like so much fun!
Give me a call tonight, and we can talk about it", he needs to put more effort in to see you. If a man invests the emotional energy that it takes to call rather than text, he becomes more invested in you. This carries through to other aspects of the relationship as well. Remember that men are business-minded. They try to get away with as much as possible with as little commitment as possible.
