Imaginary truths of online dating
It actually pains me to admit why I feel qualified to write about this.You see, I have been “that guy”, leading women along for whatever selfish reason or motive I had at that particular time.The reality is that if a man likes you – I mean likes you – it will be obvious.It’s the absence of the obvious that tells you he’s not that fussed. Connecting with people has never been easier, but we have so many options and opportunities that it makes sense to spread out our energy and keep things low key.But the common denominator was that I enjoyed the attention from all of them.Men chatting to women on a dating app for the sheer fun of it is just one example of the ways a guy can lead a lady on.
If it’s the thrill of the chase, the conversation will be heavy on the entertainment, but very light and vague when it comes to arranging a date.
If he likes you, he will make the effort to meet up. A guy will actually appreciate you more and respect you far more as a person if you’re straight with him.
But if he realises he’s not in for an easy ride and disappears shortly afterwards, then unfortunately you’ll have your answer.
We enjoy the challenge – the chase – and we also enjoy the attention.
Guys can be just as insecure as women can, and knowing there’s a woman interested in you, let alone a number of them, is a great ego boost.
