Dating emotionally needy man
To prove my point, let me share with you a quick story…My best friend and I liked the same girl back in junior high.But because I was really desperate to be in a relationship, I went around his back and betrayed him. Because my best friend was really hurt, he told everybody what I did.That ruined my entire high school experience; my friends all hated me. I had a girlfriend and that’s all that mattered back then. Little did I know, that was the beginning of the end. It didn’t take her too long to realize how insecure I was. If you can relate to that story in some way, keep reading. She doesn’t want to be the centre of your universe. Lead your life in a direction you want and invite her along for the journey.To this day, I still remember being dumped over the phone. Let me share with you some of the lessons I learned so you don’t make the same mistakes I did.–Since I didn’t have a lot of things going on for me back then, my calendar was wide open. It’s your attitude about yourself that women will adopt.Though nice at first, this can quickly become annoying.2.He’s all over your social networks After just a few dates he sent you friend requests on every social network that you’re a part of."Let's face it: If Bradley Cooper texted you ten times, you'd be blasting it to every person you know," she says.While a bunch of texts from someone you're attracted to might seem cute, and reassure you that you're on his mind, it can be draining and annoying if you're not so attracted, Steinberg explains.
As Steinberg points out, "One person’s needy is another person’s attentive," so it's essential that you talk about what you want and need out of the relationship.Create a bit of distance and give her an opportunity to miss you. Not only will she value your time together, you’ll also have more things to talk about.Whenever my girlfriend would ask me what I wanted to do on a Friday night, my typical response was “Anything you want babe.”I was too passive and didn’t want to make decisions that she may not enjoy. The biggest variable between a confident man and someone who’s needy is fear. The way you assert yourself lets her know whether you have self-confidence or not.Only then will she perceive you as an equal partner. Soon enough, she got bored and didn’t reply to my text and phone call as often.A woman has to know that you’re not afraid to be without her.
