Dating how often to call
Don’t despair – I have a little secret that is sure to perk you up: men – yes, those creatures who are so often the bane of our very existence, the ones who puzzle us and tear us apart inside, the ones that cause so much grief but always keep us coming back for more – are not all that difficult to understand.
In fact, I think I have an easier time explaining male behavior than female.
Read on for universal male truths that can save your relationship and your sanity.
I don’t know what the biggest relationship concern was back in the days of touch-tone phones, but these days, it’s all about a guy’s texting habits: why he used to text so much in the beginning and then stopped, why he takes so long to reply, why he disappears for days at a time, why his texts are so short, etc., etc.
The mistake that many make is thinking that the sudden drop in texts means he’s losing interest or doesn’t care. Most often, he’s just settling back into his normal routine.
For instance, let’s say a woman is in a truly amazing relationship and the only problem is her man has yet to say those three not-so-little words.This is hard for most women to understand because women can switch from one task to the next and back again with much more ease.We get a lot of questions that go something like: “I’m really confused, my boyfriend says he’s crazy about me and I’m the most amazing/wonderful/smart/funny/etc girl he’s ever dated but he always blows me off and he can’t hang out and doesn’t have time to talk on the phone or text back or take me out on dates and I really only see him late at night when he feels like it.” OK, maybe not exactly like that, but close enough.She may start to obsess over why he hasn’t said it and what it means.While she’s trapped in her head, she’ll ignore all the amazing things he does for her, the things that should show her beyond a shadow of a doubt that he loves her! This doesn’t mean they’re incapable of feeling love, – it just means they often have a hard time saying it out loud.
