The waiting game

If you ask a guy how long he waited to “seal the deal” with his girlfriend and you are likely to get a very precise answer. Apparently, the waiting game is one of the few games that men look forward to losing.

Anticipating when someone is ready to take the next step can require a lot of patience. I would argue that it can become distracting to some people to the point that it’s all they ever focus on. A lot of times it can take away from the “exploration phase” of getting to know someone.

I think women may be able to contend with the waiting game a little better then men, although it’s tough on us too! How do you handle the waiting game? Do you bring it up at all or pretend the sexual tension isn’t there?

Do you think the longer the wait is, the better your chances are to have a stronger connection? Does that make a difference when you want something really meaningful?

What’s the longest you have waited to seal the deal?
(Question Disclaimer: I personally didn’t want to ask this question but my friend Eric was curious about the responses since he gave me the topic idea. You’re welcome)

let’s say two bloggers were dating…and kept it on the low…..would it be cool to propose on the blog?

Uh..unless they plan to have their entire relationship on the blog. No. Tap out of the Matrix. :lol:

Besides, no one would probably believe it if was put on here anyway.

2Can – We’ve had blog marriages & blog divorces, so a blog proposal wouldn’t really raise any eyebrows! :lol:

Folks would probably think they were teasing even if it was for real!
