Dating: Ego Handling

When you are single and available, there are times when you just have to go through a dry spell.  This is when you have no prospects whatsoever.  Not even the church mothers who are trying to play matchmaker are circling around you!  Don’t panic! It’s perfectly normal and happens to everyone.

Perhaps the worst time to endure a dry spell is right after a break up or some disappointment.  You are eager to prove that you aren’t undateable and your ego needs a quick fix.  I believe I have said it before but our egos are a big problem when it comes to dating.  I mean, not only handling the egos of other people, but our own egos get in the way.

What usually happens is we get a reality check along the way.  Someone we really like doesn’t call us back or isn’t interested in us.  Having a healthy dose of confidence is never a bad thing but humility is important!

One way we can better  manage our egos in dating is going the extra distance for someone.  I know it can be tough taking a risk, but it doesn’t have to be a big deal.  If you find a person you feel drawn to, what difference does it make if you put in a little more effort?  It could pay off and that could be what makes you stand out.

I believe ladies (ok, I really mean ME) have the biggest problem with getting their egos in check.  It is part defense mechanism and part feeling entitled to be pursued all the time.  At any rate, it would be worth it to find ways to show a guy that you think he is special too.

What do you think single people could do to handle their egos better?

I recently told a friend of mine she needed to check her ego and date a shorter man.  She can keep all her fabulous heels and be really happy with a great guy if she dropped her ego and gave it a shot.  Do you think single people should check their ego when it comes to their dating prospects too?

Glad to hear it mqew. It does help when you know you did right by a person and they didn’t appreciate it. It helps with closure.

Leggs – I’m not sure why he fell so hard… She was/is cute. A lil desperate to me cause i’ve seen the pic of her showing up at his place with a trenchcoat and nothing much else. They weren’t ‘dating’ then…

He was always slightly suspicious because he could never go to ‘her’ house. I just always thought that it was the ex’s home and she was lying about that. The doc on record has the ex mother in law… only!

Haaa haaa haaaa, the old trenchcoat move. She wanted to land him QUICKLY. That move you don’t put on just anybody. Don’t know how long he knew her before she played her trump card, but that right there was a red flag if it was very early in the game!!!

mqew – LOL. So yoooou messed ole boy up by not showing up. She is definitely of the skank species. I just wonder how guys fall for that stuff. She’s wasting her skills. She could rack up teaching good women how to seem bad enough to catch a good guy.

Ghana – 37 was the fake age so she’s 42. Funny thing is, his daughter found out about the age from her family members.

DreamsM – Yeah he tried to say that mess…. Don’t think so…

Ghana – A lil white lie here or there, yea I’m sure he would have igged it. But this stuff, basic info type mess… coupled with the work lunches with ex bf he found out about … It’s done!

@Melo, you crazy (LOLOL).

@mqew ~ any man would love a woman he’s interested in to show up in a trenchcoat. After about a month of seeing each other, she played her trump card too early. He should have asked himself how come she’s so comfortable doing that so soon. Some many not think so, but after seeing a person for one month, I’m not showing up at your doorstep in a trenchcoat.

Ghana – Yeah, it’s a mystery…especially when the guy later seems so shocked about his choice…like all these dudes that keep poppin up on this blog lashing out on all the women on here because they’re AnGry (mostly confused) that they keep seriously falling for trifling skanks.

They don’t know why…and the hell if we (I) know…why that is.

Luvbug I like your entrepreurial spirit. ;-)

Leggs Our EGO gets in the way on this one. We like to think our skills are so superlative that it’s just us. lol Although I would think that’s mostly a young cat’s mindset.
