Dating a guy with 2 kids

In my college days, many moons ago, I perfected the art of meeting girls online.Of course, back then, “online” consisted of IRC chat rooms on the IBM Mainframe that connected together the University systems across the state, as well as the online email and electronic bulletin board system that all of the college students used to stay connected to one another. I was painfully shy when meeting new people – bordering on some kind of clinical social anxiety disorder, I’m sure.However, with that increased trust in the online social experience to find a future partner comes an increased risk that you’ll come across a shady character who is not exactly what he makes himself out to be.

He’ll text you a sweet “good night” message just before you go to sleep – so he’s the last thing you think about. He claims he’s a repelling expert, with hair-raising stories to boot.

He may even be so clever as to learn your work schedule through conversation, and text you the moment you get home. He may even drag you into all-night texting sessions. You mention you’ve taken some photography classes, and he announces he’s an expert photographer with $15,000 worth of camera equipment. Rule of thumb is if he sounds too good to be true – if every one of your interests seem to mesh so perfectly into his – it’s probably not true. Some core interests may align, but not usually all. Yet, I still won’t claim I know everything women want. I am not proud of the games I used to play online in my younger years, just to get a date.

How this plays out online takes time and dedication.

He’ll text you first thing in the morning so that he’s the first thing you think about.

Rather, I’m recommending that you change how you think about things and, therefore, the needy behaviors and ways of acting naturally disappear. It’s believing that you “need” the other person to act a certain way, be a certain way, do specific things or say specific things… There’s nothing wrong with having a preference for what you want and only settling for what you want. The problem with the needy mindset is that when you’re not getting what you want, you have a strong negative reaction because you think of his specific behavior as something you “need” in order to be OK… So bear in mind that this response to you is from the context that you’ve repeatedly brought this up as an issue and there’s been no change in his behavior.

At this point, rather than calling him out when he doesn’t respond, you would be far more effective if you make other plans when this happens.

However, I found when I introduced myself to a girl online, and they got to know my personality first, the first date would go smoothly.

Unfortunately, through a combination of hormones and immaturity, I learned to perfect this system into one where I could convince nearly any girl at all – from the shy bookworm to the bubbly cheerleader – to become fascinated enough with my persona that they would go on a date with me Now, over twenty years later, I’m going to spill the beans on the tried and true tricks that guys still use online today.

But there is one guy who I am interested in who seems to not fit that mold. He takes hours to answer a text message when we all KNOW that our phones are glued to our face.
