Agreeing to whatever the other person puts out there means you’re not showing who you really are.
For me, the fact that I don’t drink alcohol is seldom popular for potential dates, but I’m setting clear expectations from the start. If you’re being ambiguous, you’re attracting ambiguity.
You’re young, reasonably attractive and exclusivity is not on your agenda—or at least, it’s not for now. Two of the seven deadly sins are lust and gluttony. Just as when a girl says, “No,” when she’s not feeling in the moment and some misguided guys interpret it as a red flag to his bull, when certain women hear, “No relationship,” it triggers a, “Not now, but I can change him,” mechanism in their psyches. If she’s looking for a commitment and you knowingly proceed so you have something to play with for a while, you might be risking a "Bobbitt" in your future, and you kind of deserve it. Don’t leave souvenirs of your sexcapades around for others to find.
For you, the canine life is not a viable option since juggling multiple relationships is akin to juggling knives, and if you're not careful, you might end up with a dagger protruding from your toe... So maybe you’re no Boy Scout, but if you believe in keeping your karma at least nominally clean, dating, hooking up—or whatever you want to call it—shouldn’t be about how many notches you can carve in the bedpost. So, here’s how to sow your wild oats without being a (man) ho.
It isn’t always easy to keep your cool but here are a few guidelines for getting Mr.
Right and more importantly Not to sound old-fashioned but after my years of dating and writing about dating I find that women who let men approach them have longer lasting relationships. If you believe that you will meet the right man then you don’t need to approach the wrong ones.
Here’s what happens if you don’t: They think you’re someone you’re not.
Playing it cool looks like laughing at something you don’t actually think is funny, like a racist joke.
What’s your response when they ask, “So, what are you looking for? ” Your gray answers are resulting in a gray area relationship where you’re both unsure of what exactly is going on between the two of you.
You’re not being honest with yourself or the other person.
You’re really interested in someone, but you’re holding back on returning texts, pretending to be someone you’re not, and acting like you don’t care when really you do.
