There are certain single men who claim that they want to be single and free but they expect things from women that one would call “girlfriend stuff.” I wonder if men experience the same with women. Do men meet women who say they don’t want a man yet they call men up and ask for favors that are usually done by boyfriends or husbands?
It’s the worst form of mixed messages you can get in dating. That “you’re not the one but I sure want you to act like it until I find them” mixed message. Actually, it’s not even a completely mixed message, it’s pretty clear what is being said. People who want all the perks of relationships without an actual committed relationship are the reason a lot of us become bitter. Ok, it’s why I get bitter
What do you do when someone is giving you this kind of mixed message in dating? Do you cut them off altogether?
Are you guilty of doing this to someone? Have you been called on it?
