Dating coming on too strong
What I don’t understand is why they get so obsessive.
I’m a divorced mother with two young children, but I am not looking for someone to “rescue” me.
Are these men just so desperate that they don’t understand the fundamentals of dating? I’m sure all the women who are waiting by the phone for their dates to call are feeling particularly bad for you. It wouldn’t be too unreasonable for you to get excited about him being the future father of your children.
I kid, Leah, because it’s about as ironic as any dating situation can be. Of course, if he’s already a father of two, and also recently divorced, he might not be ready to dive back into a committed relationship. That’s simply two good people who may be compatible, but are not a good fit at the time.
They were nice and I could see an eventual relationship coming of our dating. Over the next several days he calls me constantly, starts talking about wanting a commitment from me, about our future together, and basically freaks me out from wanting to even go out with him again.
Here is the problem I’ve had…we go out once (maybe twice) and have a good time. (And yes, this has happened at least three times recently.) I understand liking me and wanting to spend time with me, and hoping that things will go further.
This may not seem like a problem to some women, but for me it is.
When I am dating, I like to really take my time and get to know someone before I put any “name” on what we’re doing.
