Should we stop dating
If you enjoy the other person’s company, what’s wrong with having someone to go out to dinner with, someone to see on the weekends? Just be honest about your feelings (aka don’t act as if this is going to turn into a relationship if you’re sure it’s not.). From then on, the relationship was no longer enjoyable.Every interaction and conversation became a test to see exactly where he stood and how he felt.It is not there to serve you and give you things like happiness and self-esteem.It is not there to make you feel good about life and about yourself.It doesn’t mean you’re flawed or damaged or bad or unlovable. Sometimes you’ll be able to see this, and sometimes the other person will have that clarity.
You find yourself searching desperately for a red flag — anything to let you call things off, definitively — but there aren’t any.###On some dates, you know right away that there’s not going to be a another one.Physical unattraction, lack of compatible sense of humors, weird behavior, and having nothing to talk about are all factors that prompt the cricket on your shoulder to say, politely but firmly, “No thank you.” Those dates suck. Then there are the dates where everything is fine — there’s, if not palpable chemistry, at least a lack of repulsion, the conversation is perfectly pleasant, there’s no alarming behavior, and the cricket on your shoulder falls mysteriously, frustratingly silent.So you say yes to a second date, because you didn’t find a compelling enough reason to say no.
