Especially when we feel insecure, we tell people way too much about us. The feminists are going to hate me on this one, but I think “I am woman, hear me roar” has done us a disservice in the dating department. If you go to his house on the first date instead of him coming to pick you up, I have two words for you: booty call. He is not a girlfriend with whom you should spend hours on the phone. You can bet he isn’t sitting by the phone waiting for you to call. We get far too emotionally attached when sex is in a relationship, but men don’t view this the same way. They don’t even stop to consider whether or not they even like the guy. Show up, have fun and if it works out, great, if not, on to the next one. Just like with children who will tell you they don’t want rules, but they function much better and are happier with them.7. After your relationship is more established, call him, but still limit how much you do call. If this is anxiety provoking, find some other way to spend your time. For the first couple of months, you should limit your physical intimacy. They think it is because they are not pretty enough, smart enough, successful enough or fun enough.
