Dating vs hanging out article
As a guy, I understand that most of the confusion starts with us.More often than not, we choose to suggest a casual-sounding hangout rather than an actual date.Chances are that when you do, both parties will be relieved.
As men and women, we love to feel loved; we love to feel romanced.
I know that flirtation has gotten somewhat of a bad rap over the years. Flirting isn’t about being disingenuous or manipulative, it’s about setting the other person at ease and making him feel confident.
What Monica brings up in her article entitled “Reviving the Lost Art of Flirtation” rings so true to male ears. Letting him know that you enjoy talking to him and maybe even think he is attractive won’t kill the thrill of the chase.
However, don’t look at this as a negative—now there is clarity, and you can get to know him as a friend without any uncertainty.
I will defer to my good friend Monica on this one, but before I do, I will say this: There is nothing more empowering for me than when a woman helps me along by communicating her own interest through flirtation.
Now, of course, this one is going to be difficult for the layman to spot since most men can’t tell the difference between curly and wavy hair and think that Margot Robbie doesn’t wear much makeup. At least not in comparison to how funny they think they are. We the people (who date men) are all deeply, incredibly aware of what men mean when they say they’re Looking For Someone With a Sense of Humor. And so we’re politely laughing in a way that, should we actually date you, will taper off around month 8 when your Seth Rogen voice is no longer tolerable.
