Dating should he call everyday
I’m busy enough to not be waiting by my phone, but I’m not so self-assured that it doesn’t hurt me.
You didn’t want to get serious after your last relationship.
Your next move is to tell him the truth: you’re looking for a boyfriend, not an occasional texting buddy, dinner companion, and sex partner. Oh, and by the way, don’t have that (or any other serious relationship) conversation via text.
If he’s not gonna step it up, you’re gonna step out. Talk to him like an adult, and maybe he’ll respond like one.
One, as you said, is to “do nothing.” By not taking the initiative – and not reminding him that you’re alive and waiting for him – you get to see whether he’s truly into you.
A man who is into you calls, plans dates, keeps in touch in between, commits, and makes you feel valued as a girlfriend. That brings me to my other philosophy, “men do what they want.” I’m surprised at how often we can forget commonsense things like that.
