We have talked about making snap judgments and how it can sometimes be a way single people avoid making real connections. Admittedly, there are times when you aren’t feeling the spark or chemistry that you want to feel. Then there are times when you probably should take that gut feeling and go with it.
How do you know when you aren’t just being a jerk and the “red flags” are real? I think when people always tell us poor, uncoupled singles that “you will know” when it’s right, there is some truth to that. When you meet someone and feel really comfortable with them right away, you probably are drawn to them for a reason.
What happens when it’s awkward and weird? Does that mean things will always be that way?
What would you do if you dated someone a couple weeks and things were not clicking. Do you take that as a sign it’s not working out?
When you have had a great connection with other people, do you compare that experience to everyone you meet after?
I met a guy last year and there was something about him that just didn’t click with me. I couldn’t put my finger on it exactly, but I never got the sense that there was potential for anything serious. He didn’t feel the same way and now he has resurfaced again. I am not in a serious relationship at the moment, but I don’t want that to be the only reason I explore things with this guy.
What would you do? Do we only get one shot to make things stick or can it also be about timing?
