Never stop dating her
There’s this guy I really like and at first things were great.
We texted constantly for about five days but then he suddenly stopped.
I’ve heard it said a million times before: “I’m really picky.” The subject, of course, is pickiness in dating, and countless men and women tell themselves they can’t find a mate because they’re just too picky.
But before we go further, we need to pump the breaks: There is healthy picky and unhealthy picky.
Nevertheless, the possibility that the relationship could be a good and comforting one makes it worth the risk.
For people who are unhealthily picky, on the other hand, the possibility of a long-term relationship does the opposite of soothing them: It actually stresses them out! If you are someone who is extremely picky, it means that you (unconsciously) work hard to find faults with prospective partners as a means of self-protection.
It makes sense, too, in a twisted kind of way: If you find enough faults to decide so-and-so is not the right match for you, eventually you can put off everyone and will never have to actually face the stress of a long-term relationship. Because you’ll always manage to push all the prospective partners away!
The Good News: I’m happy to reassure you that extremely picky daters can change if they want to do so.
you don’t know his patterns yet, so he might be at the gym.
My heart goes out to those men and women who have spent years being extremely picky — aka too afraid — because I believe they have missed out on a lot of the comfort that can come with a long-term relationship.
Once you find someone you’re compatible with, you actually create a new family.
I left him alone because I didn’t want to come across as annoying or something.
