Small world, these two knew each other and the guy I rejected told the new guy that I didn’t really reject him and he still had hope.The rumor couldn’t be further from the truth but my new beau ran the other way.He should be willing to wait all the way until marriage if that’s what you want him to do.
It shows me a lot when a guy is not willing to wait to approach this boundary before a serious relationship leading to marriage has taken off.
For a lot of us, grad school came and went and we still didn’t meet the One.
I met most of my dates through friends, family, and Ishqr. I later suggested this as a date night spot to someone really cool I met later on and he took the opportunity to sit next to me, enjoyed the food as much as I did, and we had an awesome night.
A guy once asked me to meet him at a Mexican restaurant that had L-shaped seating where the guy had the perfect opportunity to sit closer to me rather than right across as per usual. Rejection is a part of the process, doling it out and receiving it as well. Know what you want so you don’t get swayed by every smooth talker who’s not really a match for you.
Don’t get hung up after a string of rejecting/rejections. Be aware of subtle red flags and know your deal breakers.
Be wary of advice from people who tell you to dress and act a certain way.
