I am so mad and disappointed, because I really felt we were on the same page. It is a different time in the dating world, since I have been out here. Me and my late husband had a whirlwind and had sex very early on and were together for 20 years with one three months separation. I am so mad and having a difficult time not texting him or calling him. His lost. Seslie, getting dumped after being intimate is so painful.
Did he agree that you two would be exclusive and that he was open to exploring long term commitment with you?
Were those his words? Next time go slow and listen very carefully. I feel your pain. I tried contacting him again and again but he blocked me.
I ended up feeling like a complete idiot. He was a really nice guy he also told me that he wanted a long term relationship. I am 65 years old. I met a man and we have been dating for just over a month. We laugh a lot, have fun, just starting to connect emotionally and I am very attracted to him.
I tried to explain I need to go slow, he was just coming out of a relationship and so forth. No response. He just went dark. A decent grownup man who wants a real real relationship will wait. I see that time and time again. You dodged a bullet, girlfriend. Honesty this helps so much. Its not just about the sex. She is taking her time and im honestly looking forward to our 7th date next week. Its about that connection. Im panicking a little inside, but this helped me calm myself a little bit.
Thanks for the advice. Your advice really helped! We been on 5 dates. I really like him. But we need to have that talk. So I need to bring up this conversation about where we want this relationship to blossom. I already told him we need to take it slow get to know each other and build a foundation and he agrees. Great article! Perfect for me at 42 newly seeing a 54 year old that really wants it bad but definitely seems to respect me.
Going out with him tonight and Saturday nights. Out of an 11 year marriage and just had a 9. Thanks for your tips!! The advice on here is very good. I have always been different than most men as far as sex. I need an emotional connection first. I prefer to wait and get to know the woman first. I dated my first wife for 5 months before having sex and I was 17 at the time. I know of couples who have had sex on the first date and have turned it into a relationship, so people are different, but it is what is right for both of you.
I personally would not have sex on the first date and would not have a second date with a woman that would want to. Nothing against her choices, but it just makes her not compatible. But just my opinion.
If a man is looking for a relationship the sex comes later. Yes, I eventually want to see if we are compatible sexually but that is after I get to know you.
If you are considering having sex earlier than you are comfortable with in order to please the man that is not good.
IMO that is not a sign of a strong woman and for me would be a turn off. A man that wants to pressure you into sex is nothing but a predator or a narcissist or worse and clearly already has no respect for you. I have also explained to them that they have the right to be a woman that has sex when they meet someone or a woman who waits. It is there body and their right but it should always be their choice…Period!
I think women are amazing and think the world is a better place when they are empowered. I think better women make men be better men. Trust me, most need the help. I read several articles on here as well as the comments.
It is great advice. The article about dating after 40 surprised me with the comments. Where are all these women writing the comments? Trust me, that good guys are out there and I am not sure why I am not finding women like you. I have just started dating and I am lucky to look younger than I am. I work out regularly, am told I am attractive a solid 8 according to several women. I have dated a 35 yr old, 49,55,63 yes I am open minded and now a 52 yr old. A few have had their lists which I am not really fond of.
One said I was perfect if I just played golf?? None of the women I have met so far seem at all interested in my character and that bothers me and honestly turns me off. Sharing common interests is nice but I am looking for a good women with integrity, honesty and the capacity to give as much love and respect as I am willing too. As corny as it is, I am still looking for my soulmate, someone to share my life with. I in no way mean perfect. Perfect would be boring.
Just truly compatible values and integrity and relatable. So far the women just seem mechanical and looking to fill their checklist. I feel like I would just be filling the space in their chessboard. I am only saying this because I believe this site understands this about women and is offering solid advice to get you out of your own way. I could enjoy it through them and it made me feel closer too them. I always have. I am looking for a true authentic soul connection and I am not afraid to say that and to move on if you think that is corny.
I am so intent on finding it and not settling as I have in the past that I am good to be alone until I do or if I never do. No more settling. I am optimistic, I believe it will happen.
And now I have rambled on…but my point is that there are guys out there wanting what so many of you in the comments are saying you want but I am not sure why the connections are not being made. Maybe you are being more honest in the comments than you are in person. I say put yourself out there and say what you want. Look for character, I think it is everything. This website could definitely be helpful. Good luck to everyone, at least if you are here you are open to introspection and improvement as I am.
I gave it some time and discovered more about him and his life style, and after 4. Between his work and his son, I saw him every 2nd weekend…not enough to grow a relationship for me.
You know what we say: Next! I know another will come along. Well, I am the main example of maybe having sex too soon with a guy. I really felt that we were on the same page of a relationship. Things were going well N we had that talk about wanting a commitment. We either talked or text everyday. He had a trip already planned of visiting his son overseas and I am so disappointed to say the least. I learned an available lesson. But I really feel, it depends on the people.
He is just not the man for me. I am sorry Selsie. Disappearing, particularly after sharing intimacy, is a bullshit childish move. We did talk about sex and our past experiences. I liked talking about it instead of rushing into Sex too soon like I have done before. I told him that I want to really get to know him before we go that far. Great article Bobbi. Thanks Carmen.
Good job taking care of yourself. Hi Bobbi: Great article! I think every woman reading this has had issues with this subject. One can hope! Thanks for the article.
Dating after being married for over 20 years was a learning experience. This is great advice. It is really impossible to date these guys. They disqualify themselves with their desire to have sex so quickly. I made a mistake with my last guy by assuming he was a keeper. He did not want to marry me in the end and I was extremely disappointed.
What could you possibly know about a man from only knowing him for such a short time, particularly if he is a perfect stranger from the internet? And to me it is just scary and creepy. Love your advice Bobbi. Thanks for your very clear writing. Thank YOU, Freida. And, yes, those rules are all old and meaningless.
Only one at home. By choice. He was always kind and I was selfish and took advantage of that. He never married or had kids. He says he understands and will respect that, but feels that knowing if sex is good is important. I agree. Like, has that thing grown shut? Even though he tells me not to feel that way.
If he cares about you he will wait — within reason. However, not only are you making him wait you are missing a wonderful part of a relationship! I highly recommend you have an honest conversation with him. Share your fear. Tell him what you need to happen before you will safe. First, English is my second language, therefore, I will do my best to write in an understandable way that makes sense!
The attraction were mutual since the first time, that attraction that gives you butterflies in the stomach, hahaha yes, like that! We exchanged numbers, and he is been in contact since then every single day. Even during his traveling time, which is often due to his job career and position.
At the third week of texting, yes I said correctly, texting, we ended up flirting and exchanged some pictures… after I did that, I felt so bad. I felt terrible breaking my rules and values, I felt like a crazy and irresponsible teenager! At that moment I landed on earth and realized about my incorrect behavior. I was so worry about the image I sent to him, and afraid of ruining a nice opportunity with someone I felt so good with.
Any way, full of second thoughts, I made my decision to let him know about how I felt, and I did it out of my heart… he answered that he have to process what I said and he acknowledged that my words came from my heart..
I feel horrible with me for acting like that, I lose my mind while immersed in all that magical time! Not hearing from him a word makes me feel more bad with myself! I wish I am wrong taking his silence as his response of backing off, but I am afraid that is the answer…. HI Renata. Please stop wasting time feeling bad about yourself.
Until that time, stay in Discover Mode. Keep learning about him. Hugs to you. And again, stop kicking yourself. Now go give that to someone who earns it, ok? Hi Bobbi, I think you give great advice. I am hoping for some help with my situation! I am 41 yrs old woman in london.
A guy I had dated 2 yrs ago contacted me. We had got on well at that time but lost touch as he went abroad. We started texting and he seemed very interested. As usual I enjoyed talking to him and we kissed, got a bit intimate and I felt it went really well. I texted him next day to say I had a good time ,He also said he loved it and should do it again.
I felt I was initiating most texts but he would always respond well and within reasonable time. I then decided not to initiate texts so much and basically over the last 3 weeks I have had about text chats with him and no contact in the last 10 days.
I understand that his job has been very stressful recently and has been travelling abroad a lot but anyone can spare a min to text. I feel I am getting mixed messages from him.
In the last text convo we had 10 days ago he said that he hopes I understand him?? I also suggested that we meet again and he said yes we can arrange it when he gets back from the US. Its been a week since he is back and no contact!! I am not sure if he is not interested and is too polite to tell me. I find that strange as I am not a stranger he is getting to know. Is he just playing games? How do I tell him that I am not looking for commitment? Because of our past history and how well we get on, I consider him my friend and trust him.
I just want to have a good time, have a sexual relationship and see how it goes. How do I tell him this without sounding too keen!! This is a grey area. I am a very attractive woman and I have had men say they are committed just to get me into the sack and a few months later I found them messaging other women to go out with them. One guy actually used my computer while I was cooking him dinner…. We had been dating steadily or so I thought for 6 months.
There are no guarantees with this. If he is a stand up guy then you may stand a chance. Some pretend to be good guys but, they really are not. You will find out as time goes on. When you want to go to the next level they lose interest.
I found out in 6 months because I pushed the issue. God had to be watching over me because I just happened to go on the meetup board and there it was in black and white.. I then checked my computer and found that he was on a dating site while spending the weekend with me. He was using me all along. He turned out to be a creep with a hidden agenda. There were some signs and I should have listened to them but, I only invested 6 months and I got back into ballroom dancing with him so..
I got something out of it too. Hi Tina. Thanks for sharing this because I know there are a lot of women who share a story like yours. I see this so often; women get totally surprised when they learn something nasty about their man but when guided, they see that there were many signs they excused or missed.
I hope you can grab some learning from this and apply it to your next potential relationship. Hugs, Bp. He wants to be exclusive and was open about his intentions for a longterm relationship and possibly marriage. Bigger problem—zero chemistry and bad kisser. Last man I dated was a big, burly man and we had great chemistry but I was more invested than he was and he eventually ghosted me after dating for 6 months.
This new guy is the polar opposite of him! What to do??? I want you to look for what will actually make you happy. I dated a great man great on paper for 18 months. I finally had to end it because even though he was physically attractive, I did not feel attracted to him and did not like kissing, at all. Not even a little. I am now dating and going out with men who I feel that physical attraction for and there is a difference in how the physical connection feels.
Sage advice all across the board, Bobbi. Yet, I still have hope. Online dating not for me. Never thought that was a barrier for me, but apparently it was a barrier to magnetic attraction for other men. Anyway, soul mate not expected to live long. I have tears, but the future is all good for both of us. Thank you for sharing your story, Trish. Keep it up. Bobbi, you are simply the best at this. Thanks Dr. I say wayyyy better. Love to you! Thank you I really enjoyed your article.
Where can I find that man to have that long-lasting Relationship. Thank you. Where do you find that man? Stay with me here and keep learning. I think your advise was excellent. We want everything yesterday because of the world we live in. Having and amazing sexual intimate relationship takes time. Why we have to get to the finish line so quickly is so wrong. Enjoy the journey and look around because it will come.
So many of us have the limiting beliefs that there are so few good men out there. We have to grab the first one that comes around.
The more you believe in your worth, the more men will too. It takes time to get that confidence. Treat men with kindness and respect and they will make the effort.. I treat those the way I want to be treated. I really do want the R in Relationship. I failed and I think I hopped in the sack too early. Now that I have had intimacy,, which is really nice by the way, it is really hard to have a grown up conversation with him.
We have been dating for several weeks. Should I stop and try again. Thank you, Mel. Be honest with yourself, and then him. Do you want to keep sleeping with him not knowing how he feels about you and what his longterm relationship goals are?
Tell him you that you read this article and realized that it was important to you to have this conversation with him. Share what you feel you need in order to feel safe continuing to have sex and ask for his thoughts.
It can be scary, but it can also be the best thing for your relationship. If you two can have a good discussion about this, it says a lot of positive things about your relationship. This is what makes relationships better — not worse. I know that would hurt, but better now than after you got even more attached. You can do it!
Hi Mel! I know the feeling. My advice, stop worring and continue to live your life. He will bring it up when he feels ready. Let him initiate dates, calls and plans. Keep being a warm, fun and loving woman and keep him coming back for more. And if he is not stepping up, enjoy him for what he can give and keep dating other men. WOW Bobbi! Great ideas.
