Signs you are dating a boy not a man


Why you do it: If you idealize romantic partners when you first meet them, it’s often a sign that you have been burned or neglected emotionally in the past, and that you’re holding out hopes that someone can magically fill the voids. Remember, the best way to overcome lonely feelings is to cautiously approach new individuals in the following way: You wait for the right one so that you don’t have to keep starting and then stopping, and starting yet again with someone new. How exhausting, right?

Plenty of women have a lot of male friends simply because they feel men are easier to deal with. So that in itself isn’t necessarily a sign. The problem is when you notice these various “friends” always doing things for this woman. It’s possible she is in “pimp mode” and taking advantage of their interest in her.  You may express your concern but she will simply shoot it down and make you seem like you are being unreasonable. She isn’t interested in addressing the issue because to her there is no issue.

Even though I write about relationships for a living, I also used to get tripped up back when I was single and would catch myself spinning into analysis mode while trying to figure out how guys felt. You analyze the texts, you replay your interactions with him over and over in your mind, you cling tightly to the compliments and kisses…and are more quick to part with some of the red flags and bad signs.  When you add emotions (and a bit of ego) into the mix, it can be hard to see things clearly. Instead, you’re seeing the situation through a lens of wishful thinking and sometimes a bit of self-deception.
