My friend asked me for some advice, and so I told him to turn it to you guys. What do you think?
Where is the line between “I like you” and “I-like-everything-about-you-even-how-you-brush-your-teeth-and-can-I-watch-you-floss-this-time”…?
I started dating this girl and imagine my surprise when it actually worked out! She actually liked me back and what-not and our relationship had a legitimate future. I’ve always seen myself as a great at going on dates, but I quickly realized I have no idea how to “date someone.”
I didn’t ever realize how unrelated the two are. In one you just have to keep her entertained long enough to decide whether or not you want to ask her out again. The other involves making sure she stays interested on a semi-permanent level.
This begs my question: How much attention is just right? (Where’s Goldi-Locks when you need her!) [Editor’s Note: Okay, so I didn’t get this when I first read it, but trust me, it is funny, read it again.]
I am someone who falls hard, probably to a fault and I know it. I generally get ahead of myself and make things weird for the girl I am dating, or trying to rather. But clearly this time I played my cards right. She likes me. Now my problem is I have no idea what to do next.
Everyone knows that one too many winky face emoticons can be the fatal blow to any budding romance. So not that you, the general public, are my final hope in terms of love advice, but I am looking for answers from every outlet.
In your experiences what has been the right amount of attention? Obviously every situation is different so here’s the prompt for help:
- Guys: how could you tell/decide how much attention to give her?
- Girls: what kinds of signals do you send to tell us how much attention to give?
Save me from a fate similar to our cartoon friend’s…
