Excellent points. Yeah I don’t go into dates thinking this is the one anymore either. In fact the guys who do do that freak me out. I cut and run pretty fast since I have little desire to deal with their high expectations.
Meeting new people is a lot of fun, but there’s one big difference between your side and mine. But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe you’re dealing with it too. I’d be curious to know.
It’s this — The men I meet want a physical relationship super fast regardless of whether or not we continue to see each other. It’s almost a separate issue and has no bearing on the dating relationship.
That’s very irritating. It’s hard to enjoy coffee or dinner when you’re dealing with the guy’s sexual pushiness. I’ve gotten super careful who I’m willing to meet these days (COVID aside) because of this aspect. It’s just too much work.
