Dating is about feeling good about yourself when you’re with someone and them feeling good in return.It’s a mutual exchange of equal value effort, time and interest.Physical touch can separate a friendship from a courtship. If someone is avoiding touching you then they’re keeping the possibility of attachment at bay either for their sake or yours.Of course this is an overly simple characterization of what dating is.Many will argue that the modern world allows for textual relationships but that’s a cop out.If they aren’t calling you then you aren’t really dating.
What if there is only physical intimacy but you never meet in public places or have contact outside of face to face meetings? If you’re at the mercy of another’s fancy of when they will see you and your requests for meetings are routinely denied then you’re not dating.
The reality of real courtship is the ability to get what you want out of it without waiting to be chosen or given permission by someone else.
Dating seems more confusing today than ever before because we settle for less than what we want.
If they keep telling you are wonderful but they are not ready to have a relationship, it just means they are not into you.
Do not even try to wait for the days when they are ready.
