Chattering on and on while monopolizing the conversation is exhausting for anyone.
Going overboard telling him why you don't need a man doesn't give him a whole lot of room to imagine being in your life. Out of nervousness, some women think they're responsible for keeping the conversation momentum going, then complain that men don't show up and engage with them. Men take time to sell themselves on the idea of a relationship.Exclusivity is something they merge into, rather than swerve at. Take your time and think about whether he’s boyfriend material for you, while you date other men to make sure. Standards are no longer instilled by circumstances the way they were in our grandparents’ generation.I don’t put much stock in psychic readings, so when a palm reader told 17-year-old me that 1) I would be single for five years before I met Mr.Right and 2) I’d kiss a LOT of frogs along the way, I dismissed his reading as the blathering of an old man looking to make a few extra bucks. When I was in my mid-20s, I spent four years as a single gal.
