Ambiguous relationship dating
Then there was the excessive verbal processing of every little step in the relationship — so weird.
And there were the countless dates that I managed to ruin by rambling on like I was talking to my therapist.
So I said, "If you don't mind me asking, what do you think this relationship is? I'm not sure where this relationship is ultimately going, but when I meet a woman who is as beautiful, intelligent and spiritually mature as you, I don't spend time with her so that I can make a new 'friend.' I've got plenty of those. I just want to make sure you understand that." "Oh," she said, seeming taken aback by my forwardness.
" "I guess I would call it a really special friendship," she said. I knew it wasn't a perfect execution, but it was a vast improvement from the days when I would have freaked her out with some over-the-top, premature diatribe about pursuing marriage.
There's no guarantee it would have actually worked (heaven knows some people certainly tried), but if I could go back in time and be the one to make the speech, here's what I would have said.
Before you're ever going to win a woman's heart, you've got to deal with your own.
Where I was trying to get engaged by the end of the third date, they could never seem to make it to the first one.A few weeks into dating my wife, we were talking on the phone when she mentioned that she had enjoyed "hanging out" with me.I wasn't sure what she meant by that, but I was afraid that she might have misunderstood my intentions — I mean, when I'm "hanging out" with friends, I don't pay for their meal, wear my Friday night best, or gently touch their back while crossing the street.They sense it — even if they can't put their finger on it — and it leaves them feeling slightly uneasy.Talking and praying through your issues with these mentors will help you change and be more confident as you introduce the real you to women.
