If she was hitting him I guarantee she wasn't having sex with him.
That dude MAYBE got to have one tepid squelch session with her once.
If a thin wispy woman like her can "physically abuse" you, sex or the lack thereof is the least of your problems.
It may be my defense mechanism so I don’t get too close to anyone.
He texts me every day (though I prefer phone calls), and we see each other at least once a week. I’m still willing to give him a chance, especially since I have been known to cut dudes off when they do one thing that I don’t like (I know; I should do better).
The reason being that the point of dating in the first place is finding a suitable mate to start a family with.
Nobody wants families anymore so what's the point of taking a person seriously?
I use my words to let him know how I feel (about him). We talked for FIVE HOURS over small plates and mimosas. In his mind, using the term “date” presents certain expectations. Because I still have problems reading men, even at 35, I talked to Ty Anthony, who advised that this was not uncommon (to not use the word “date” when getting to know someone). There was a whole lot more I was prepared to share, but I think that next to last sentence pretty much sums up what I’m feeling.
He uses actions to let me know how he feels (about me). The first time we went out, he invited me out to brunch. (That’s the first time I’ve been able to put my feelings into words. ) And do I cut-off what could potentially be a great guy because he’s not chasing me the way I want to be chased?
I tell all my single girlfriends to give online dating a try. Your inbox will fill with notes from 19-year-olds in the ‘burbs, 40-somethings who find your taste in music “refreshing,” addled idiots writing “id fck u,” and a handful of age-appropriate, nice-looking guys who can string some sentences together and like to cook.
You set up a profile, pick some cute photos, write something witty about the things that you love (Beyonce, Hillary Clinton, Battlestar Galactica), list some books you like, and then sit back, kick your feet up, and wait for the messages to roll in.
With those, you will send a few messages back and forth before he invites you for a drink.
