Just recognize that you’d actually like this guy more if he pulled away more and cared about you less.
Published continually since 1998, "NEWS YOU CAN USE" was a Blog before "Blog" was even a word!
CONTENTS I also include and explain my wristcard-based play-calling system - it streamlines teaching and makes memorization obsolete, eliminating as much as it's humanly possible the need for kids to memorize plays. As they headed into the final game, their coach was repeatedly criticized for his team’s stodgy play, with its heavy emphasis on defense.
For those coaches who might want to adopt my system, the playcards are already in the book, prepared and ready to go. Since I have been running your system for so long now, is there much value added with this one or is this for people just beginning? This is certainly designed to help the first-timer get up and running, but it's also a major upgrade for the hard-core Double Wing coach. Hey coach, Does your new doublewing playbook have any plays from shotgun or any pistol or is it all from under center? One reporter, accusing him of wasting all the talent at his disposal, compared him to a man driving a Ferrari at the speed limit.
I wrote about a man’s passion and proficiency just two weeks ago.
In short, a guy doesn’t have to be a jerk to do well with women. And while I hate to keep on referencing old blog posts, some of them apply specifically to this theme, especially this one, which says: Let’s see… I think those two things are the essence of any relationship.
What she didn’t have – what I really needed at the time – was a backbone.
I broke up with her for a woman who was like a Sex and the City character come to life. After a few months of phone calls, I flew to the East Coast to go on a four-day make-it-or-break-it date. Exactly as I pulled away from the darling girl who would have done anything for me, Miss NYC pulled away from me. This means that you’ve been married, so you don’t feel the need to do it again.
A little history…I’m 28, divorced with two young kids, they live at home. He’s relatively attractive but not my usual type or taste. When there’s a rare exception to that rule, we call it love.
He is 37, divorced with one teenage kid that he sees every other weekend. I can’t figure out if I’m attracted to him or the fact that he’s a good guy. Calls, writes me letters, texts, takes me out, does family outings, asks about my day, washes my car, is clean, is fit, responsible, understanding, compliments me, etc, etc. We don’t get too much opportunity to spend alone time so we’ve only slept with each other twice. He’s completely fallen for me, thinks I’m strong, independent, beautiful, good mom, etc. Then the dilemma becomes do I let this great guy go and regret it afterward? As I see it, you’re asking a few separate questions here. You may be confounding to men, but you’re definitely not crazy and definitely not wrong…. We can break it down to its elemental components, but that thing that you feel, which draws you to a man? No more than the base attraction a man has to a woman when he sees her across a crowded room.
You’ll find them attractive, but they generally won’t want to stick around with a single mom who has all your responsibilities. I do however get a bit exacberated at all the women who claim that ‘i just want a nice guy.’ That kind of sentiment doesn’t do justice to yourself or the men who want to date you.
As for what you should do with this guy, it sounds to me like your mind is already made up. Staying with him when your heart’s not in it is doing neither of you any favors.
