I've been following this thread since the beginning so, first, want to say 'whoo hoo doctor doctor that it is still working out so well for you and your sweetie'.

I've heard either the exact same words, or very similar, in the past. First guy was just in the delusional-lust stage. He may have believed the words when he said them but there wasn't anything behind them. Turns out there was another woman who was also "everything he ever wanted in a woman".

Last time I heard something similar ("I can't imagine anyone more perfect for me"), it was after being together almost 2 yrs so I believed him. The thing is, there are people for whom that belief ('she is perfect for me') doesn't translate to action (I want to be with her). Glad to hear you and yourr sweetie made that leap of faith and continue to enjoy the benefits. Some of us are not so fortunate.

Peace

so happy to hear this from you.

as for the not calling in the beginning..
i have experienced that.
my bf seriously would say he would call and then fall asleep in front of the tv.
i know its true because when i was at his house i would witness it.
its not always pulling back...sometimes men get really tired from working all day.
sometimes they just need some space to get things done and get very focused on the task they are doing.

good luck to you OP.

I am getting out of a relationship like this. We talked just about everyday on im for about a month and a half before we met. We would see each other 1 day a week on the weekends, cuz we lived so far apart. We would meet half way. He would tell me the same things, even that he was falling in love with me. He would text me every morning telling me good morning, through out the day texting something funny. And then go a couple days, wouldn't answer my texts or calls. And when I finally hear from him, he would be angry and take things out on me, that I knew nothing about. But otherwise he was kind and said wonderful things when we were together. This would happen almost once a week.It has been 2 days and I finally heard from him today. He is leaving the state, and I never meant that much to him, even though he had big plans for us.( we were seeing each other for 3 months) I think part of his problem was a bipolar condition, but to leave after all the things he had planned was crushing to me. He never wanted to commit, just wanted a campanion. He may even be married. He said he was only here because of his daughter. I think he would come out for 3 months to see her and go back. I think the whole time he was a liar. Be careful, this man is 53 and never grew up.

He's keeping you on the back burner for when he's bored and has nothing better going on. A lot of people do this.

commitment is kryptonite to us men for the most part. We like to adventure & see new things. The last thing we'd ever want to do is be entrapped. For you women a relationship is security & protection that you want & need. For us men, its the same in ways but our adventurous urges will start to itch at a certain point. That's why its best for alot of men to live out their lives and experience a lot before settling down...while women need to settle down early because of their biological clocks.

So the best thing for women to do is be the greatest they can be so a quality man who has gotten his adventurous urges taken care of can settle down with her because she is that exceptional.

@Tinkerr Belle

Sure, homemaking might feel entrapping but....let's be honest...as a women you want security and stability. So you dedicate your entire life to finding that exact man you can build a secure relationship with and setup a family with. Your life revolves around finding him.( let's be honest!)

You fantasize about it all the time.

you look up engagement ring.

You plan out your wedding before it even happens.

you have decided the location, what everyone will wear....EVERYTHING. lol


A man would be lucky to even think deeply about being married until it comes close to the date.

and also as a guy, you have to wonder.....will she stay the same once we're married? Will she change to who she really is because now she is secure and doesn't have to put up a fron to reel me in or keep me interested in marrying her?

i'm just trying to give you some insight into our world.

I confess I haven't read any of his works myself, but a friend shared often and a lot about the mans emotional coming close/moving away dynamic being eloquently explained by an author named Chuck Spezzano. Even though I have never read his material , I feel I've heard ample profound commentary on the topic supposedly coming from Mr Spezzano that it satisfied my curiosity about this dynamic to the point I am able to let go and just think men are like the ebbs and flows of the ocean. Hopefully you can check his stuff out at library, buy at bookstore or google to find him if he does ebooks, which seems to be the trend w/ a lot of these relationship guru types. Good luck OP and keep your life going regardless of his ebbs and flows. You won't be forgotten most likely for honoring his man cave time

Unfortunately a lot of men are like that which ruin it for honest guys like me & it's sad that women get played for fools & is understandable that women find it hard to trust someone that is honest. Yes some women are like that but more so men!!!

^^You resurrected this thread after a year for that??

If you'd read the few posts ahead of yours you would know that the OP is still 'dating' that man 4 years later and, as of the last post and her profile, they are still very happy together.

In other words, OP's guy was not a liar/player who makes honest guys like you (gak) look bad.

You can appear dim all on your own.

Thats great news - but truely three years - without commitment - is way too long to be kept on a string - all of us women these days, need to know what we want - what we will accept - and what we wont - if anyone crosses our defined boundries, and expects us, or asks us, to put up with any form of Bull - please say - NO

Teased by an experienced sociopathic teaser - is sometimes difficult to recognise - but it's highly likely it's the trait, of a con man, playing games, with youre heart and grace generosity and love.
