Watching your friends all start getting married might seem like another excuse for a great party (after all, most wedding receptions are loaded with alcohol, food, and single women), but after a while, when you’re one of the last of your friends to remain single, you might just start having certain thoughts.
It’s the teenage fantasy: hooking up with the teacher, the friend’s mother, or that single older woman down the street. That doesn’t seem to change all that much when guys get older, become ‘adults,’ and even well into their 30s and 40s.
When you first start dating a new man, it can be an exciting time. You’re both learning about the other and there’s an electricity you can’t find anywhere else in life. Those first weeks and months are some of the best and while you’re trying to dig into his psyche and get to the bottom of what makes him tick, even when you think you’ve got everything out of him, there are some things he probably hasn’t shared with you.
When you first started dating, things were awesome. You two clicked right away, had a lot in common, laughed all the time, and were energetic. He didn’t complain about any of your physical issues (you know, the ones you’re constantly focusing too much attention on in private, even though you look amazing), but as the months march on, you might be picking up on some hints that maybe he wants you to lose a few pounds.
Did you ever actually think about the foods you order when you go out? What about on a date? If not, it’s time that you did. After all, your date is thinking about it.
You’ve been dating this guy for over 2 years. During those first months everything was awesome. You couldn’t get enough talking to him on the phone, couldn’t wait for the next date, the next time you could see him, and you drove your girlfriends absolutely crazy talking about him.
It might be tough for some women to even think that men are trained to hate them, but when you realize the way roles are defined, how movies portray women and relationships, and more, you can easily recognize some of those same perceptions within yourself.
Everyone needs a hobby. Or two. It’s the best way to maintain independence, whether it’s from parents or your partner. For women, there are so many things from which to choose that it’s almost natural to have many different interests.
It’s an age old question: why are men intimidated by strong women? There are probably plenty of guys out there who would adamantly claim they are not intimidated by any woman, but when push comes to shove, truth tends to shine bright.
Have you ever noticed that you spend all this time figuring out what type of outfit to wear, getting the makeup just right, and then your date arrives to pick you up and he doesn’t seem all that thrilled? It could be what you chose to wear or even how you wear it.
Do you know what men are looking for in a potential date? What about a future wife or life partner? It’s easy to think you know based on what society has branded guys as being focused on, but reality can be quite different.
