Dating Dilemmas: Who Should Make the First Move? | eharmony Advice
The advent of social media and online dating brings with it some dating dilemmas that our parents never had. Here's our top 5. Once upon a time our dating pool was mostly restricted to the small selection of potential dates around the office, friend's often slightly dodgy single pals, or even worse Our choices were based on a kind smile, a coy look, or a knowing glance or invite. Nevertheless, there was the assumption that you had some background information on your potential partner to get you started. Dating wasn't a plunge into the complete unknown with no point of reference to get you started. Today the possibilities to find love are endless.
We've all been there. After a few dates with a guy, you feel like this could lead to something, when suddenly he falls off the face of the earth. Or it's been months-he's even uttered the word "girlfriend"-and out of nowhere he says he's not ready for a relationship. You're left wondering what went wrong and analyzing and reanalyzing and reanalyzing things with your friends.
This is the ultimate dating dilemma and one that can twist you up in knots of indecision. One way of coming to a decision is to write a list of pros and cons. Sometimes seeing all the positive and negative aspects of the relationship written down in black and white can help you really see the right course of action to take. The time for indecision is before you say anything to your partner, not after.
