Topics: 44 things girls want but wont ask for (wrong title) - YouTube
I’ve been emphasising something over the past few months that I feel it’s time to revisit: Dating is a discovery phase. Use the period from when you meet whether it starts out online or in the ‘real world’ as an opportunity for you both to discover the ‘facts’ about one another and assimilate whether you want to progress or opt out.
Generally speaking, to get to the point of going on a date, there is some level of attraction there. However, unless you’re superficial or living in Lala Land, the point of dating is to build on the attraction, get to know the person, and ensure that whatever ideas and assumptions you have are grounded in reality. You need more than physical and sexual attraction you should be getting an initial sense of their values and whether they treat you with care, trust and respect, and of course match words with actions.
If you’re not getting to know them or you are, and are experiencing things that are at the very least proceed with caution signals or at their worst, full on abort mission signals, this is because you’ve already decided to commit, regardless.
