How this plays out online takes time and dedication.
He’ll text you first thing in the morning so that he’s the first thing you think about.
Knowing that I have that pattern, I made a promise to myself to pick up on coldness whenever I find someone attractive and to walk away.
And that is something I do – I look specifically for empathy.
The hope is that my two young daughters will read it some day, and become immune to these antics. All it takes is a witty remark or flirty jesting to make a girl smile and break down any defensive shields around her heart.
This is difficult to accomplish in person, because it requires very quick thinking and perfect timing.
Some of my friends think it’s do with the bar being raised…I’m quite attractive myself and I’ve had a lot of attention from the opposite of sex since I was about 13, including the “very good looking”, so perhaps it’s just knowing what I could have and that that’s influencing me? Now, first of all, I want to make it crystal clear: you are not alone.
Women, on the whole, are far more discerning than men when it comes to physical attraction.
I’m not going to say whether these women are right, although THEY certainly feel they are.And guess what…on those very rare occasions when the idea of kissing/sleeping with someone is not downright unappealing, they’re cold and narcissistic, and so I walk away.
