Romantic advice dating

There’s a super fine line between wanting and needing a man, and I haven’t figure it out yet.

I feel like a young woman as outgoing, independent and attractive as myself should have men fawning over her.

But I’m really terrible at showing that to guys I actually like.

And even after all my 26 years on this planet, I still can’t figure out if men want you to “need” them or if they find this annoying.

But when I DO deem a man worthy of my time, I’m all in. In the last year, I’ve dated/seen/hung out with (however you want to phrase it) three men. And although each situation was different, they all ended with the guy basically telling me he didn’t see me in his future.

Guy one was just a complete coward; we started as friends, explored a little more and then right when I decided to open my heart to him romantically, he freaked out and said he couldn’t “handle having a girlfriend right now.”Guy two was totally enthralled with me, at first; he was good looking and charming, but was not the type of guy I generally go after.

“The dating world is competitive and few people have the time to constantly pursue someone who is not demonstrating any interest,” says Anderson.

“Stop playing these silly games and show a little interest back.

But I know I have a ton of attributes that should be working in my favor, so why does it feel like they aren’t?

In an effort to put together a FAQ wiki, I'm going to be periodically collecting answers to some commonly asked questions. Please use this daily free-for-all thread to ask for advice, rant and rave, share something you've learned about dating, and help people.

So, when you're tired of online dating, where do you meet people? Remember our rules, be sure to include ages and genders if you need help with a specific situation.

I checked in with him a few days later, and he told me what he had been up to, and that he planned go on a road trip with friends that weekend. A few days after that I sent another text, and came in a little hotter this time, basically saying I’d love to go out again if he’s free. I desire to be in a loving, committed relationship with a guy I can also call my best friend. It’s tough for me to meet men who I think are worth my time and energy.

I also don’t deal with rejection well, so it takes a lot for me to accept someone into my life with the possibly of being hurt.
