I have a friend who can be completely oblivious to when someone is flirting with her. She is a beautiful girl with a really big heart, but sometimes a guy has to go to great lengths before she actually notices. Men lose interest with her because she is slow connecting the dots of their efforts.
I don’t know the root cause of her dating blind spot, but I can’t count the times I’ve heard her say, “Wait, was that a date? Or my personal favorite “I think he is just being nice to me”.
Of course men can be kind without an ulterior motive, but most single people have some kind of agenda on the dating scene. Which brings me to the part of dating I do not enjoy: figuring out what the dating agenda is when there are so many signals. I try not to give up out of sheer frustration or laziness but who has time to figure out motives?
If you are unsure about whether or not you are on a romantic date, or if you are unclear about someone’s intentions, what do you do? I tend to be cautious and wait it out but sometimes that backfires! At some point someone has to make a move, right?
How do you handle the mixed signals?
