Brady and Liz knew each other slightly in high school, but that was four years ago.
You’re the one that got away.” After a month of constant attention, which Liz found flattering but a little sketchy, she saw a post on his wall from a friend saying it wouldn’t be long before he would be back home with his girlfriend, he must be psyched.I’ve learned from a lot of the guys here that they have ways of figuring this out, based on a woman’s social and sexual history, as well as her behavior. Nearly a week later, when she texted him Thursday to find out if they were still on for a Friday dinner, he texted back to say, “I’ve been meaning to get in touch. So maybe dinner isn’t such a good idea.”“If a guy likes a girl a lot, there’s not much she can do that will turn him off–including sleeping with him on the first date.They report that there are “tells” that a discriminating man can use to rule women in or out as a girlfriend. On the other hand, if he’s mainly looking for sex, it also doesn’t matter how long she holds out.I can’t attest to the effectiveness of their methods, but it got me thinking about how women can use their own intuition and powers of observation to know when they’re dealing with a player. The question is, are they open to the idea of being in a committed relationship? Until you reach the point where you have established compatibility and real affection, you must operate under the assumption that he is not seeking anything more than sex. Players are obviously better at this than everyone else. The guy will keep taking her out on dates–even as many as seven–until he gets laid. She couldn’t believe it could be him, but on his wall there he was thanking his dear friends for having shared his special day . They talked all night and he requested her number, asking if it would be allright if he texted or called soon to plan a real date. The next day he was texting repeatedly, wanting to meet up ASAP. She saw that his profile pic was of a woman sliding a wedding ring onto a man’s hand.
She asked him about this and he denied that it was him.
He claimed she had found another guy with his name. He refused, but continued to harrass her to come out and meet up.
LESSON: It’s hard to get away with much in the new world of social media.
Still, you can waste a fair amount of time and energy being played before you realize what’s up. It’s can also be very challenging to assess someone’s character objectively, especially if they’ve got you feeling butterflies.
It’s very difficult in the early stages of attraction to know the motives of the other person. Let’s face it, infatuation is all about putting the other person on a pedestal, seeing them in the best possible light. How can you enjoy yourself, knowing that there may be hell to pay down the road? Very few men are looking at you wondering if you would be a good mother.
There are no easy answers, but it pays to be on the lookout for the red flags that signify a person is not relationship material. Obviously, if he says any of the following things and you get involved with him, you are beyond my help: I had dinner with my BFF Daisy Milliner over the weekend, and she told me a horror story about a friend of hers–a nice, successful, smart girl who waited till the SEVENTH DATE to have sex with a guy she thought she liked. –he didn’t call, didn’t text, didn’t contact her in ANY WAY.
