How long do I give the withdraw period before realizing he doesn’t want to take things further?
People are entranced and captivated by someone who has an air of excitement, adventure, and pleasure to them.
While it can seem like men only want physical pleasure, what most really crave is a woman who reaches them on a deep and profound level.
If a guy isn’t all that into you, but knows you’ll give it up on date #3, he’ll stick around long enough to get some booty then leave.
His thought process is most likely, “Well, I wasted this much time with her…
Going back to the whole issue of giving a guy space.
First, keep in mind that if your mindset is needy towards the guy or relationship, the amount of time that’s passed won’t really matter. if he went from constant texting to now a full week goes by with nothing, then go ahead and text him.
To answer your question from the information you’ve given me… From what you told me, my read on what you’re trying to figure out is one of three scenarios: a) you want to know that he likes you because knowing someone likes you feels good, b) he is indifferent to you (in the romantic sense), but you and you’re seeing what you want to see, c) you don’t know whether or not he likes you, but you’d be open to starting something with him.
I’m going to go with the assumption that you like him, mainly because if you didn’t, you wouldn’t have asked.
But deeper than that, what you’re hoping is for me to confirm that I see things the way you want them to be – “he loves me, he loves me not, he loves me, etc.” You ever play those games? It’s a sense that you don’t really believe that it could be true, but you really want it to be.
A lot of the time, women fall into the trap of playing “emotional detective”: They dig into their memories and observations and go through EVERY insignificant detail to try and uncover some “hidden message” or “secret code” that the guy is sending.
might as well cash in on the obligatory third date sex.” My point here is that if you want to win with this guy (or men in general), you have to view yourself as a prize to be won as a whole. You need to see yourself as the proverbial Goddess on Earth, a spectacle to behold…
