Fortunately, I’ve logged many therapy hours listening to men as they’ve opened up and explored their deepest needs and fears.
Who hasn’t fallen for that grand opening game, where they lure us with intoxicating conversations, funny dates, a perfect little heart necklace, delicious kisses and more?
If only it was solely used for those reasons, then the world would be a much better place.You had a fantastic time on your date—and he did, too. “You may never know for sure what's up with him,” says Marla Martenson, a matchmaker, author and motivational speaker.At least, that’s what you thought until he suddenly dropped off the face of the planet. “It could be that he is seeing multiple girls, or he is just not that into you. Get out there and date like a guy.” If he still hasn’t responded to your texts after a week, stop dwelling on that dude and move on. Believe it or not, they also fear rejection and abandonment. Men play out unconscious and conscious dating games which create a maddening push-pull with your heart. Men fear being overwhelmed and taken over in an all-consuming relationship void of any video games, sporting events or nights out with the guys.
