Dating Women and Dating Games, Part 11
So let’s move on (http://blogs.davelozinski.com/dating/dating-women-dating-games-part-10) to this woman who claimed:
“I’m not into playing games”
As you’ll soon read, actions speak louder than words.
Tick. Tock. The “Biological Clock”
If there’s one thing men are well aware of when it comes to dating, it’s that there are quite a number of women who are looking for someone quickly because their “biological clock” is ticking.
This absolutely hilarious scene from the movie “My Cousin Vinny” sums it up perfectly:
Enter “Hilary”. Another woman I met online at http://www.rsvp.com.au which, at this point for an online dating site, I would not recommend to anyone.
Hilary and I exchanged several messages and a phone call. Things were going well, so we scheduled a date for a Wednesday evening.
Tuesday night rolled around. I contacted Hilary to reconfirm our date for Wednesday.
She had to cancel (and only did so AFTER my contacting her).
Who the hell double books a first date?!
She made no attempt to reschedule and sent no further follow up messages.
Another game player.
Just for fun I followed up a week or two later asking if she’d care to reschedule and what her availability was.
She upped it a notch.
She said she got back together with her ex.
I let it go.
Fast forward 4 weeks.
I saw her back on RSVP. I wasn’t purposely looking — her picture just showed up on my homepage as a “featured member”.
Since I was still in the “free communication period” from the last “stamp” I had to purchase to initiate communications with her, I wrote her a message:
“Interesting seeing you on RSVP. I thought you were back with your ex and not into dating multiple people at once?”
She was just on that one day. Yes, she got back with her ex, but broke it off because he didn’t want children.
THEN SHE WROTE:
“I was thinking of you today and wondering if you’d still be keen to catch up.”
Let’s break down the first part:
|She was just on that one day||Anyone else rolling their eyes?|
|Yes, she got back with her ex, but broke it off because he didn’t want children.||He knows what he doesn’t want and all the sex in the world with you isn’t good enough to change his mind.|
Then the charming line she used:
Put through the bullsh*t filter:
|“I was thinking of you today and wondering if you’d still be keen to catch up.”||You caught me out and this is embarrassing. So I’ll try charming my way out since I’ve obviously made no effort to contact you.|
The conversation continued:
“Meet up? Well, that depends… are you serious this time? Or still playing games? If the former, I said I was leaving the ball in your court — you still have yet to let me know a couple dates/times where you’re not double-booked.”
“I’m not playing games. I have a broken heart and am not really ready to be dating again. But the biological clock is ticking (very loudly) so I have to dust myself off and get back out there.”
Let’s break down again what she said:
Her quoted response:
|“I’m not playing games.|
|I have a broken heart and am not really ready to be dating again.||Men are NOT looking for rebound candidates. Read my Tips For Attracting Quality Men, Part 02|
|But the biological clock is ticking (very loudly) so I have to dust myself off and get back out there.”|
The Bright Side?
I’m that much closer to finding “the one”.
So people, my usual question, AM I TOO PICKY??
