We Just Don’t Care

Well here’s a dating dilemma I wouldn’t mind having: A reader wrote to me asking for the blog’s input on what she should do about her man’s extreme PDA behavior.  It seems that he has a thing for fooling around in very strange and inappropriate places.

She admits to being a little prudish when it comes to this kind of thing, but she has seen the thrill value in it.  She wants to know if she should admit that it makes her uncomfortable? Is it possible that he will eventually get tired and the novelty of it all would just fade away? How would you handle it?

Have you ever been in a relationship and your partner seems to cross the line from frisky to “no way am I doing that” territory?

When a guy proposes, he believes that his girlfriend has far exceeded his expectations and wants to make her his wife (or he doesn’t want to risk losing her).  Either way, men have girlfriend expectations and they should.  I just wonder if women know what they are.  I’m going to guess that we don’t and maybe we shouldn’t know beforehand.

After you have dated and hopefully communicated with one another, you have expressed your needs in a relationship. I believe that we express our desires and expectations in different ways.  Would you agree? Do you think that we have realistic expectations of a dating relationship?  What …
