Perhaps this was during a time when online dating was less prevalent and people had less options getting in the way of commitment.
A man I recently met (let's call him Dick), who I shared a mutual attraction with, would of course send me text messages that read something like, “Hey, maybe we can meet up for a bit at some point this weekend?
”It's the “maybe” and the “at some point” that gets to me. Let's use Dick's text message as an example: An underlying fear of coming across as too eager or being rejected is likely the cause behind this ambiguity.
These tremendous gains will be worth the wager you took to get there.
It's fair to state that humans are complicated beings with complicated thoughts.
Conversations don't flow the same way via text, and it's harder to truly get to know each other and for relationships to blossom.
One of the biggest benefits of properly communicating is that you're getting rid of that awful feeling of uncertainty you have when you're not sure where you stand with someone you like.It reminds me of some Taylor Swift song — and accordingly, it's a common enough problem that I've seen several women crushed when this dream dies.There was a time when being in a relationship seemed easier to accomplish.Unfortunately, we are often unsuccessful at the open type of communication.We have been conditioned to play games and play it cool instead of being open and honest.A suggestion to consider would be to simply ignore texts that present nonchalant plans and proposals of non-dates, and suggest that he come up with an actual date idea.
