The most sane thing you can do for yourself is to start bringing space into your life as much as possible. Our outer world of smartphones and social media is a constant stream of unending noise and a frantic freight train of activity to react to.
Without space, it almost feels as though this constant activity is like a vortex that pulls us into it.
Actually, A New Mode’s relationship section is only part of my business – I also help guys with their dating questions.
Sooner or later, though, there will be a point where the person you’re seeing doesn’t text back and you’re left wondering what they’re up to…
And if you haven’t discovered this yet, it will be at these moments that you discover one of the necessities of modern relationships is to remain undisturbed when it does happen.
So if that’s happening, you’re probably looking at a guy who isn’t all that into you… well, you could be saving yourself a ton of time and heartache. so if you think that you have a good relationship with the guy you’re with but you believe he’s starting to lose interest, then I highly recommend you take the following quiz. Sooner or later, this kind of thing is going to happen and now is as good a time as any to become comfortable with the idea of giving a guy space.
at which point I would recommend you would cut things now and meet someone new. Which is foolish on two fronts: first it implies that the time to be impressive is only at the beginning and second it implies that another person should select you because you impressed them (and that you should select them because you found them impressive). I’m not saying that there aren’t those rare cases where some disinterested guy inexplicably changes his tune and comes around… The best way to think of text messages is this: If you he tells you, specifically, he’s going to text you at a specific time for a specific reason, then it makes sense to expect him to do what he told you he’s going to do. Outside of that, texting (in the view of most men) is an interruption to whatever we’re doing at that moment.
We can get caught up in it, thinking about and reacting to the happenings streaming through our smartphone into our head.
