I am a shy guy, and even though I have no problem socializing with people, I find it hard to approach women and to maintain a meaningful conversation. Even if I step out of my comfort zone and start chatting with a girl, I run out of topics real quick, the conversation dies, and the girl eventually excuses herself and leaves. Do girls like shy guys? What are my chances of getting a girlfriend?
Hi Patrick! The chances of getting a girlfriend are all within you. I know it might sound like a cliche, but here is the thing: socializing with women is not easy if you look at it as not being easy. A lot of times men put too much focus on saying the right thing and then […]
I met a charming woman during my work event and I can’t stop thinking about her. We had a brief chat over a drink, but I was too shy to ask for her number or to ask her out. We work in different departments, so normally I don’t get to see her. I found her via employee directory, but I am not sure if contacting her via her work email is the right thing to do. She is confident and successful head of a department and I am just a regular clerk and I am dreading that she will never look at me as at a potential match or even worse, she will tell everybody that I am hitting on her. Shall I just try and forget her?
Hi Greg! When it comes to working situations you do have to be careful. I understand where you are coming from as you do not want people in your company talking about your crush on your colleague or even worse – get Human Resources involved. What I would suggest is for you to take your […]
I am dating a guy that I like and we get along pretty well: we have common interests, we enjoy doing things together and we are comfortable with each others company. He is caring and attentive and I wouldn’t mind settling down and moving in with him. However, every time I start a conversation on this topic, he freaks out and says he needs his personal space and he doesn’t think it’s going to work. How to get him to commit? I don’t want to be pushy, but I don’t want to waste my time either if our relationship is not leading us anywhere.
When men start dating a woman, they aren’t in a rush to settle down and they see commitment as something that will eventually happen with the right woman. As women, however, we are usually more focused on the commitment and the stability or outcome of dating the man rather than just enjoying the process of getting to know the […]
I’ve been trying to find a partner for a couple of years with no luck. I signed up to a few online dating sites, attended single events, went to dancing classes and tried many other places and ideas where I could meet some singles and even though I had a couple of dates, it never evolved into anything serious. Not sure what else I could try? I am not getting any younger and I don’t want to end up single. When will I find love?
Dear Teresa, I completely understand your feelings about wanting to find the right person for you. Do you feel frustrated because of the uncertainty when you are going to meet your ideal partner? If so, you are not alone. While I cannot give you an exact date and time as to when you will achieve […]
I haven’t been lucky with finding a girlfriend: as many times as I tried inviting girls out on dates, I eventually was rejected. I try to be a gentleman, say compliments, take them somewhere nice, pay the bill, but when I attempt to arrange the second or third date, they either say that I am not exactly their type or simply never reply to my messages. After multiple dates ending up like this, I developed this fear of rejection and I am not that keen on dating anymore. Shall I take a break from dating and work on something that would help improving myself?
Hello Josh, thank you for sending in your question about this issue of dating. I can see that you are very upset and overwhelmed by the situation which is totally normal. Remain as the gentlemen you are and pay on the first date. This form of chivalry is winning and shows you are a man […]
I’ve been seeing this guy for almost half a year now. Our relationship is not very deep, I’d say it’s casual: we meet up every now and again, have dinner and sometimes I stay at his place. He says compliments to me and thinks that I am attractive, but he hardly ever wants to have sex. I don’t know what to think, it never happened to me before. His usual excuse is that he’s exhausted after work, but I hear the same thing even during the weekends. Do you think there might be other reasons rather than his tiredness? Why won’t he have sex with me?
Hey Marla, Thank you so much for your question. It is an issue that often stays unheard because it takes so much courage to speak about it. But it is very common! It is actually just as common for men to have a lack of sexual desire, as it is for women. I will offer […]
