Chivalry is dead, well at least it seems like it. I stopped focusing on finding a boyfriend.
I wanted a boyfriend so badly that I accepted anything that resembled a relationship. For example, I was calling the guy I hung out with once a week to make-out with my boyfriend — uh, crazy.
I started to make a concerted effort to fill my life with friends, family and hobbies and interests that enriched who I was and let guys fall into the background. Turns out, that made me way more attractive to the opposite sex.
12 s he wants to be more than friends
Once, I told a guy I liked that I wanted an actual relationship and he gave me one. Sometimes you just have to tell people what you want, no matter how scary that may be. I avoid one-night stands and quick hookups at all costs. I make them work for it.
How to distinguish between dating vs. hanging out
I refuse to meet up with guys after 10 p. Remember, nothing good happens after midnight. If he wants to see me at night, he needs to be willing to put in time during the daylight hours. I started calling guys out on their BS. Some guys really think that sitting on the couch watching Netflix is the same as going out to see a movie. I was seeing a guy whose idea of a date was taking me to meet his friends at a sports bar — I was basically one of the guys, except that I had a vagina.
I only agree to plans that have been made ahead of time.
I know I sound like a broken record, but a guy really does have to put in some effort to be with me. If he wants to see me, he can make actual plans with me. I keep my confidence high. I know what I deserve. I had to realize my worth, and once I did, I stopped seeking attention from douchey guys with bad haircuts.
Plus, it has the unintended side effect of making guys way more attracted to me.
This is a big one! He got what he wanted. I want him to notice my more important qualities.
