If I had been direct from the outset about what I was looking for, about what he was looking for and about just how much our plans and dreams had in common, I would have known these answers in time to save my heart from the heartbreak that comes from waiting too long, from getting too attached to the wrong person in the name of a dream, and from forgetting that I had just as much say in the relationship and where it was going as he did.
While I was concerned about being too forward, what I had missed was that I could be assertive without being aggressive, if I had only realized that being assertive is much more attractive than being so passive.
Believe me, he will not be turned off by you dating more men than just him.
What he is competitive enough to know that he wants to show you why you should drop the others and become exclusive to him.
After dating several guys for a while you might just find that the guy you originally thought was number two or three surprises you and takes on the number one position.
There’s nothing worse than being in a new relationship only to realize that he/she is still swiping right on Tinder.Another good rule is that if you’re not comfortable talking about birth control and STD protection with him, you’re definitely not ready to be giving yourself to someone on the kind of sexual level we’re talking about here.As uncomfortable as those conversations can be, they are necessary conversations to have with someone you’re about to become intimate with. When someone I had been dating suddenly wasn’t calling as often or as regularly as he had been, instead of talking to him directly about it, or deciding to back off myself and start living my life more so that I wasn’t sitting around waiting for him to call, I would get scared and call him.If I had only realized just how much healthier a relationship is when two people are both able to communicate directly, I would have understood one of the true tenets of the type of relationship I longed for, yet had no idea of how to get there.
