Article on dating advice
What happens when your "I love you" is met with a "thank you," or worse, a deer-in-headlights look?
I’ve now been dating a really great guy for over 2.5 years. Which brings us to the results of the survey I did last week.
If a woman asks a man out and he says 'no,' at least she knows where she stands with him and she doesn't waste any time pining over someone who isn't interested.
Same thing goes if she makes a move on him and she's rejected.
Unlike asking a man out, making a move on him, or even proposing, there's no action-based response to the first "I love you." It's all words, it's all emotion.
In that moment, he either loves you back or he doesn't -- you only hear the black or white of a 'yes' or 'no,' not the gray of "Well, I like you a whole lot and I could see myself falling in love with you, but I'm just not quite there yet." And the truth is, it often takes men longer to get there than it does for women.
