Pre-STR/LTR: I over-analyze how often to text and what to text them. I too have to resist the urge to reach out during the day if I am really into the woman. I also worry too much that I am coming off "weak" when in reality it probably barely matters what you say if her attraction is high.

In STR/LTR: If she for some reason does not want to have sex (isolated incident, not long-term) I have a tendency to suddenly become very cold and detached (which can cause unnecessary issues). I have been better about this in last couple of years when it is a legitimate reason. Also, if they suddenly have a change in how they communicate throughout the day (in frequency or positivity of messages) it can highly irritate me if there is no reason.

At this point in my life, with the experiences I have had, I am not sure I can attach anymore, so that hasn't been a problem for me lately. Part of it is that I can see all a girl's red flags and then based on past experience, see exactly how the relationship would play out into the future, so this prevents me from attaching. The other part is that, because of that, and because I have a busy life and don't have a hard time meeting women (well, this year has svcked until very recently due to mask mandates where I am), it's just easier for me to stay detached. I think if I met an 8 or 9 who seemed well adjusted, I'd probably get attached. Thing is, I just never meet them. And it gets worse the older you get because it's like Ross or Home Goods - one of those places that buys all the sh*t the good stores can't sell.... that's what you are picking through when you are dating single women in their 30's. I date women in their early 20's but don't find them to be interesting enough to be relationship material.

My "type" weakness is petite, slender blonds and red-heads. Under 110lbs. Preferably under 5'6".

In dating, my weakness is attracting women with NPD and BPD and just general nut jobs, and also not ejecting quick enough (though I am good at setting boundaries and enforcing them, I let them beg me back which is 100% on me). I think it's because I like hot women and hot women are the craziest. Combine that with the fact that all the moderately sane hot women already being taken and, well, there you go.

The girl I've been seeing for a month now is crazy hot, 35 (old for me but not by much), and has the exact body type I like (blond, weighs 105 lbs and is 5'6" with crazy long legs and a huge thigh gap). I've done a good job and she's bought-in hook line and sinker. Would do anything for me and is great in bed. Cooks for me etc. But she doesn't have many friends and complains about the ones she does, as well as a lot of other "annoyances" she is always venting about - pretty negative overall, plus the usual anxiety issues nearly every woman seems to have. Her venting/complaining is never about me though - but experience has shown me that I will become the target in due-time. The pattern is: Love bomb / you're my savior -> idolize -> realization -> demonization - > attack / crazy. This time, I will not let a girl beg me back. She gets ONE chance (which is probably too many) because I believe a woman needs that in order to understand you mean business in enforcing your boundaries, but I need to leave it at one and that's it.

3 years ago I failed to pull back hard enough on a girl and got dumped. That was the last time I've been dumped. I thought setting a date once a week (and not initiating contact) was about as far of a pull-back as was needed as long as she always agreed to the date and showed up for it (which she did), but there are some women who you have to pull back even harder on and get to the point where they are asking to see you instead of you asking to see them. There is a popular phrase in the manosphere that says, "You need to give women the time and space to miss you" and sometimes the amount of space some women need is greater than you would imagine.

Can you elaborate on the "just be yourself" part being a bad idea? I find that being your genuine self is a great way to vet out all low interest woman from the get-go.

I think a lot of guys believe that "just be yourself" means "I can act however I want and they will all still want me". which is the male equivalent of "Big is beautiful".
If yourself is charming and pulls women do that. If yourself has several errors and incorrect boundaries fix that sh1t.

1. I forgive too fast.

2. I think too much.

3. I want to solve everything on my own.

4. I have too much interests and burn myself out fast if I'm not careful.

5. Beer. Pilsener to be precisely.

I'm totally with you. I'm not comfortable playing a role nor am I a fan of the "fake it till you make it" attitude. People like you or they don't.

1.) Pursue too much- initiating texts/phone calls too often. Not pulling back a little when I should.
2.) Becoming too available. This is a 2 sided coin. One one side, if I don't have anything going on I will be available even if I just saw the same chick recently. I won't miss out on a good time with good company just to sit at home to follow the dating "rules".
Unfortunately, the only "cure" for this is truly becoming emotionally destroyed by enough dating to become utterly outcome indifferent lol

1. Put the girl as a prize instead of myself
2. Care too much
3. Do not check the girls

Probably fixed 1st point so far.

i spent too many of my younger years caring for what she thinks or says and not judging on her actions.
With experience and some help from my brethren, I flipped the switch.

All good responses so far. I think the first thing to improving and being more successful with women is realizing what we need to become better at.

Good stuff guys.

What kind of effort?
I'm not sure, but I suppose it depends on the chick. It used to be that you would ask out a woman, she would say yes, you would hit it off, you'd ask her out again, she would say yes... then this kept going until she started reaching out to you first. This is what was normal. You expressed interest by asking her out: she would express interest by continuing to accept, until you got to a point where you are putting in equal effort to keep things going. Then at some point as things are moving along, she would pull back a little to see what you would do, if you don't over react, well... then you would be good for some time more. Older women 40s and 50s, still do this. Younger women not so much.

Now.... well a significant minority of women will pull back almost right away... if I was dating 15 years ago I would take this to mean she isn't interested and just move the fvck on. I'm too old to change and really I don't have the time or energy for this. But I've had several women in the last five years that would flake and make things hard, then later would actually tell me they thought I wasn't interested because they didn't think I put in enough effort. To me... my effort is asking them out... but with younger chicks, apparently that isn't enough.

I suspect this has more to do with the illusion of abundance created by social media, dating apps and the over supply of pvssy worshiping jack@ss simps. Man I could tell you stories, but I know one chick that suffers from depression severe enough to requires ketamine therapy, is neck dee in debt, in her late 30s about to hit the wall hard, and she has a boyfriend that pays for island excursions, trips to NYC, flying her first class all over the place, he is emptying his wallet to be with her. If he didn't do this, there would be another dude willing... When you see them together it's just sickening, she has this little dog that he takes care of like a butler and takes pictures of her having fun on his dime that she posts on social media. Any normal man that cares about himself and future wouldn't want anything to do this this chick.

Anyway before she hits the wall at full speed, she'll marry this fool and ruin his life completely. I know a lot of women like this.

Spot on.

Most simps will lose their mind when the chick pulls back. And eliminate themselves from her dating pool.

I make the move to ask her out, she accepts. If she makes things hard, I eject.

Dating was MUCH easier 15-20 years ago. As long as the high interest was mutual, things were super easy. 2-3 "dates" and then she was coming over to watch a movie, cook dinner, etc. Women today just drag stuff out and I think the reason they do is because they THINK they have all of these other options. When in actuality they do not.

So they dont want to commit right away (Yes women used to commit very early on if they had high interest in the man) because they want to see what is the best option.

Anymore I just bounce and go the other direction. If she was pulling back to see how I would handle it, she better hurry the fvck up and catch back up to me or I am gone.

I have had a few women tell me that I "act differently" than most guys. And they say its because I dont blow their phone up, I dont act all beta and I really do my own thing. Busy life.

Its funny because the new chick I went out with last Friday and banged (even without the sex it was one of the better dates Ive had in a while) we talked about how things should go when dating. You go out, if you have a good time you agree to go out again. Wash rinse and repeat.

Things were all good. Sending me pics of her @ss in panties Saturday morning and then started acting a little distant. No worries, I start going the other way. She catches up or I am gone.

Too much overthinking and game playing in today's dating world IMO. High interest sets the tone for how any relationship starts and how it goes through the duration of it. If there isnt crazy high interest or she thinks she can do better, its not going to be a good investment of a man's time into her.

Not so much a "weakness" but more of an epiphany over the last 1-2 years.

First, let me state I'm over 45, been single for about 5 years, and have dated 70-80 women in that time. I've come to a disheartening conclusion in that time: That considering the amount of time I would have to put in on apps, IRL, venues, etc., etc. just to find one or two decent women to ask out, that will likely fizzle after 2-3 dates...

The effort I would need to commit to dating in 2021 -- at the expense of the my hobbies, health goals, money goals, interests, free time, my business, and my friends -- is just not worth the TIME I need to invest to do it properly.

What I'm saying is the ROI in modern dating is a fool's errand.​

Sex? I have apps and w*ores for that.

Companionship? Maybe. But, I've had my fair share of LTR's and to get that "companionship" you need to deal with a lot of female BS -- some psychological, some biological. Plus, I have a loyal Doberman.

I think Ranger Mike said dating was MUCH easier 15-20 years ago. I agree 100x. On many, many levels.

Thankfully, I'm the kind of guy that is perfectly fine "dating myself" and hanging solo or with friends. I don't get all anxious and nervous about being "alone." As a matter of fact, I much prefer it compared to the stress, passive/aggressive BS, tension and mostly the time suck of being in a LTR.

Not trying to be negative, and I really wish it was different, but it's not.

So I'm kind of like Mike Ditka (Google him if you're under 40). Legendary Hall of Fame Tight End as an NFL player and revered Super Bowl winning Head Coach in the NFL. So for now, I'm focused on coaching not playing.

Ciao.

Women tend to come at me fast. Everything moves at light speed for the first month, they’re constantly texting, constantly asking you questions, wanting to see you. It’s VERY hard not to let it get out of hand but they basically force you too, the relationship feels rushed instead of progressing naturally like I’m used to in the past. Then as fast as their interest peaked, it falls just as rapidly. It comes out of nowhere and I usually hear “you don’t text first enough, you don’t seem that interested in me, blah blah blah”. Then it’s over just as fast as it began and they’re gone. When they pull back, they’re pulling back for good. I never chase them but I can get them to string out the fade for a couple of weeks but suddenly it’s hard to make dates with them when just last week it was easy, I was having to shoo off a b!tch because I wanted some me time. I dunno, I’m not cut out for dating this day and age. I was good back in the day and things progressed at my comfort level and if you got 3 dates you basically knew you would end up in a long term relationship. Now? They’ll dump you coldly after 4-5 dates and you’ve met their friends and parents and sh!t.
