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 […]
I just can’t forget my ex and it makes me seriously depressed. Even though we were together for a short time, our relationship was pretty deep and intense and he felt like a perfect match. I had to relocate to another country, but we were planning to keep in touch, meet up again and travel together. However, his enthusiasm died off rather quickly and his messaging transitioned from daily to next to none while I spent my nights crying for him. It’s been over 3 months now that we are apart and I don’t think there is any future for us for multiple reasons, but I can’t help comparing my new dating prospects to my ex and it feels like they are miles apart: not even half as smart and fun to be around with and I am just not attracted to them the way I was to my ex. How do I stop lingering on my past and prepare myself to let somebody new into my life?
Dear Brenda, I want you to think about this; the hold that your ex has on you might be preventing you from ever finding happiness. You might feel as if you are alone, but you are not. Other women and men have experienced loss and heartache. And although it is difficult to try to make […]
I have a wife who doesn’t want sex. Things were ok before our marriage but after we moved in together her attraction to me started fading away. When we were dating we used to have sex at least three times a week and then it gradually reduced to a couple of times a month. I love my wife and I am sexually attracted to her, but this situation makes me frustrated. Every time I want to talk to her she tries to avoid the topic. Shall I suggest her seeing a psychologist?
Paul, Many couples see a change in their sex and intimacy as their relationships lengthen in time. When a couple moves in together, the dynamic does change, and it’s important to talk about how this affects both people. When you live with someone, you see them all of the time, and the sense of mystery […]
