If he wants to be with you and to move the relationship to the next level, he will ask for your attention and to give him the opportunity to choose to pursue you each day, be it with a phone call or planning a date. If you sense that he is making no effort to move the relationship forward, then it’s not unreasonable to say, “We need to talk about this because I want certain things, and I don’t get the sense that we are on the same page.” At the end of the day, I don’t think any woman needs to wait around for a man who is not ready and has no plans to be. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my dating experiences, it’s the importance of honesty and openness.A man who wants commitment will move the relationship forward, and the guy who is just not ready will let you get away. Let a guy know how you are feeling and what you are looking for.(Okay, maybe I will.) I'd like to tell you I hang glide and build soup kitchens in Haiti, but last Saturday I got drunk at home and watched an entire season of_ Gossip Girl_.I guess that's me 'living in the moment.' God, I'm such a dork.""Why do we connect?What causes solitary beings to want so desperately to be close to one another? I enjoy tandem bicycle rides.""How would I describe myself?Perhaps love is another form of gravity, a cosmic force bringing us together whether we like it or not. Smart, funny, driven, intelligent, athletic, inquisitive, loyal (SO loyal), fabulous, organized, a bit nerdy, living in the moment, caring, spiritual, open-minded, occasionally stubborn, and above all else, fun!They, too, have been in relationships (I’m talking boyfriend–girlfriend official status) that ended because he told her he wasn’t ready. He cared for her very much but couldn’t match her feelings. And so many girls I know have been dumped because their boyfriend wasn’t ready. There does come a time when a guy needs to get on the same page or else end things, but before you require that of him, be sure to ask yourself the hard question, “Do I love him as he is, with the emotional pace he brings, or do I really just want him to fit in to my romantic timeline because it’s what I want right now? Regardless if it’s him or if it’s you, if your guy is making no effort to get on the same page as you, don’t hang around.” I think both men and women can get caught up in the expected timeline rather than focusing on what is right for the relationship. In fact, I got caught up in that during my first serious relationship—thinking I was really ready to take next steps with my then-boyfriend by embarking on a cross-country relationship with him, even though he made it clear he wasn’t ready for that. But what about men who decide they’re just not “at the same level” as you and don’t seem to have a plan for getting on the same level? Paul: Ah, well now we are getting to “unreadiness” reason number two: “I’m just not that into you, but I don’t want to hurt your feelings.” If it feels as though the guy you are dating is not taking initiative to move the relationship forward, and he offers “I’m not ready” as an explanation, then he either does not want to be in a relationship or is not sure if he does. Telling a woman you are just not into it is hard, and some guys like to chalk it up to unreadiness to make it easier on you . If a man wants to be emotionally and physically intimate, he needs to be ready to handle the commitment that comes with that. I think the most encouraging thing for a woman to do is to give him space.
And that’s because I’ve been in situations where it became all too clear, all too late, that my beau and I weren’t on the same page.Wouldn't this same sentiment—"I enjoy playing soccer in the park, and an active sex life is important to me"—sound less caveman-ish in your actual profile?
