Initial stages of dating
I don’t know, maybe it was a really interesting episode of Corrie that night, but it was a texting faux pas that automatically put me off said soap fan.
This can apply to texting, but mainly this is a rule for the date itself.
This second phase is a chance to recognize you and your date are two different people with two different mindsets.
You return to “life as usual” with one small addition – your partner.
Early attraction often involves the physical attributes of the partner and include things like outward appearance, body type, interests and personality traits.
At this stage, the attraction may not be too “deep” and each half of a couple is generally putting his or her best foot forward.
Pulling away means not calling you, or not sending you emails and text messages, or not seeing you for a while. Even if it can be utterly confusing for you when he does that, especially if you really like him, how you react to his absence will set the stage if he´s going to fall in love with you, take advantage of you, or pull away for good.
“It´s human nature for a man to test the waters”, says Argov, “he wants to see how much he can get away with.” Here are the three reasons why the man who seems to like you will pull away: Most men deliberately don´t call just to see how you´ll respond.
BUT whilst I may be quite clearly terrible at relationships, I consider myself to know a thing or two about the dating game, – specifically that early stage of dating after you first meet, where you’re still texting and trying to suss each other out. By now, we all know about the basics of dating texting etiquette, whether you like to admit you indulge in these childish games or not.
