These women are all dating after 40…some in their 60s and 70s. They had one date three weeks prior, and since it’s only been texting. Texting has certainly complicated dating and relationships.
“Sue” connected with a man on Tinder, they had a couple emails, and then he started texting. I’m going to give you some straight scoop about what texting really means and doesn’t mean.
All I want, to use an old-fashioned term, is a girlfriend.
Somebody I can take out to dinner on Wednesday, a picnic on Saturday, and talk to or text during the week. Getting dates isn’t the problem, it’s converting just one to girlfriend status that has been the challenge.
So…the bottom line on texting and dating is this: use texting sparingly, wisely and, most of all, don’t read too much into it.
Remember, real life and real love happen in person, smile to smile, touch to touch.
I’m no slouch: tall, trim, own my own business, nice guy to a fault. “L, you are kind, decent, funny, and attractive but I just don’t feel enough “electricity” (aka infatuation) so I’m going to have to end it.”The biggest obstacle I face it is meeting this expectation of “rock me to my soul connection” fantasy man that even they can’t explain.
Whatever it is, apparently I don’t have enough of it. In thinking about it, I’m not even sure when they say that, it’s the real issue.
And if he is serious about meeting a woman for a real relationship, he will step up.OK, Ladies, you want the honest, real, unvarnished truth about what a commitment minded, nice, cute, professional, divorced 54-year-old man really wants from you? As a guy she’s been a tremendous help in terms of understanding and relating to women in the 50 age group. You also know that understanding men is a key to finally writing your own grownup love story. LM really says it best, so here is what he has to say after reading about the various types of 40 single women, called my Please thank Bobbi on my behalf.Or a “looking forward to slurping spaghetti with you Friday.” Let him know you’re thinking of him and appreciate him. If he sees your picture and profile and wants to meet you, the hunter in him wants to get directly to the result: meeting you. They feel that chatting first just gets in the way and would rather skip the phone and/or email.But I’ll say it again, doing a bunch of texting first creates an unrealistic sense of connection.
