How Much Time You Should Give a Guy to Commit Before You Quit
Holy smokes, talk about the 8 week rule. Log in or sign up to post a comment! Been with the guy for 12 years. In order to be able to post messages on Talk About Marriage, you must first register.
At that point the woman should just give him space. Just found out I am having twins! If he only texts you once a week and then you have sex….. The 3 day rule. You can go on a lot of dates with a player who, in the short term, is getting his fix, but still be left high and dry. We have an amazing,… Read More….
But the problem is I gave half my heart to him over the 7 months despite trying to hold back as much as possible. Women just bond quicker. Kudos to you Evan for spreading the word on how to respond to men. The paradigm is changing folks!!!
Just in time for our granddaughters. I am going through a similar situation. The guy I just broke up with has been single for 5 yrs. He began to pursue me but then after about 2 months into it I felt he was taking me for granted. He would rather us stay at his place mancave. But his FB always has new women pooping up and I am rarely on the page. When I confronted him after 3 mtn of dating. He said he does not take ultmadiums.
I am with him every weekend and hisclose couple friends say to let it go because he is the happiest he has ever been a d that they havnt seen anyone else around since me.
So I broke up with him. Was I demanding a deeper commitment too soon? If the answer is going to be that he realizes his good luck has ended and he lets you fly free, it will be that answer in 6 weeks or 16 years — as it has been with me.
Go with your gut and do it sooner than later. I love posts like this, Evan: One danger I often encounter with the online dating is how easy it is to slip into the daily email, but only seeing each other in person once in a while. But it can be difficult to go from establishing that original connection over the computer — often with a guy who feels more comfortable behind a laptop screen than face to face with a woman — and then have it transition to seeing each other frequently.
However, when I meet a guy that makes me feel good…I expect more. LOL…I know this about myself, so I laugh at myself. With yourself…and with him. You have nothing to lose, and everything in the end to gain. However, I would like to know at what point the woman is supposed to stop mirroring and initiate contact. I dated this guy for only about a month, and he was doing most of the calling and texting and I consistently responded warmly and positively.
I made the comment a week or so ago that I had not heard from you… Going all the way back to high school, I have never been in a relationship where I was essentially the sole originator of all communications.
I was under the impression that the mirroring continues until you know the guy is your boyfriend. What kind of man would leave a woman because she gives him space to figure out what he wants. It is disturbing that a man would use that as a reason to break up.
Did you have the talk about being exclusive? It is always him that does the initiating.. But he said it is nice to hear and feel that I want to see him, as well.
Just like us, we want to know he wants to see us. Well seeing his reply, I would count my blessings. He took the opportunity to communicate and used it………. Blowed if I would even answer to his message. Yes, ever the contrarian I guess.
In my experience, it has always been the case that the dating situations that turned into relationships involved both sides doing some initiating, putting in some effort, taking the risk of rejection. In other words, we took turns mirroring to demonstrate our interest. Because they never have to step up and show that they are interested.
This is the danger in being led by anyone except the Holy Spirit. For 4 weeks they were probably talking and getting to know each other better.
She was probably talking and going out on dates as well during that time. Another week has gone by. Valentines day all alone, not so much as a text, let alone a card, or flowers or a date. I m dating this guy for 4 weeks. N yes he only texts me once a week. So i have seen him 4 times and i slept with him on every date. He did introduce me to his friends, tho.
Handsome, smart, very smart, and everyone likes him, men and women. So am i just his booty call? I like him treating me like a baby. Yes you are his booty call. You are not dating him. If he only texts you once a week and then you have sex…..
Joe, re-read the post. That is not the same as saying he saw her one time in 4 weeks. So no contradiction at all. So he would not condone someone just dropping in on you casually for months and months. Timely and a half! It was fine with me. I think it depends on the couple. Seeing someone initially so frequently is more than I want. I think relationships start off backwards. As you get to know and care for a person you want to spend more time IMO. Just like how long it takes someone to return a call, email, text etc….

The eight-week rule of relationships. You currently have 0 posts. I found I had the emotional strength I needed to survive my divorce and come out happy on the other side. I read somewhere that at the 2 month point most men will pull away for a while to assess how they feel about the woman.
At that point the woman should just give him space. If he's really interested he'll call. If not she will never hear from him again. I've noticed this over and over again. This 2 month thing seems to be built in to people. It's why rules like if a woman will not have sex by the 3rd date the guy thinks she's not interested is a really dumb rule if the guy is looking for a long term relationship and not just a lay.
Since men tend to look down on women with high numbers of sex partners, maybe it makes sense for women to wait until after this 2 month period before having sex.

I was seeing a new guy after I moved out. Just kind of happened. It was great for 3 months and then all of a sudden he said he was confused and needed time and then said he wasn't ready for a relationship when he thought he was.

Then he said, well, he might have felt differently in the morning, and could we still be friends. I feel vindicated and very lucky finally.
