Giving up on “giving it up”

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:53 am

Keeping things interesting on September 21, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

Is there something in between having sex and not having sex??? Because if there is, I need to know what it is in order to hang onto a guy after the third date!

See, in December I fell for this guy and we clicked — tons of e-mail, great two dates, great phone conversations, he bought me a plane ticket so I could end my visit home early and see him. Well, he picked me up from the airport, we did the deed, he dumped me over e-mail the next day saying I gave it up too easy.

Gun shy and hurt, I spend the next several months healing, working hard in my profession and building inner-strength. Then last Saturday night I go out with this *great* guy and we have an absolutely fabulous 11 hour date. He couldn’t wait to see me again so we met up the next night. That night he arrives with lips and hands in motion, makes the move, I (learning from the past) ask if we can hold off, he runs. It was like having the Roadrunner exiting my apartment (meep! meep!).

You sleep with a guy — he bolts.

You don’t sleep with a guy — he bolts.

So back to my original question. Is there something between having sex and not having sex where a girl can keep her self-respect AND get to the fourth date?

— Bitten Smitten Kitten

Dear Kitten,

Okay, big eeeeuw on both boys. But you’re lucking out here with a special guest answer from Actual Guy Chris Pizzo, co–author of What Men Want and, I’m sure, frequent fourth-date-getter-toer:

“Guys who sleep with women too early on in the relationship will classify that woman as a Good For Now Girl, not a woman with wife potential. This guy actually did you a favor by bolting. Normally, when a guy has a GFN girl on the hook, especially one that he is having sex with, he will keep her on the hook, string her along, just to have sex and companionship and ultimately hurt her. You’re lucky he bolted and didn’t string you along.

The second guy also did you a favor by bolting. He was obviously in it for sex and sex only. So he bolted! Better for you. You wouldn’t want to be with a guy like this.

In What Men Want we talk about signs and signals. In both of your examples you describe ‘great’ situations. The difference is, ask the guys what they were thinking. I’m sure their interpretation would be quite different. Knowing how to read the signs and signals men send off would have alerted you or at least cautioned you about these guys. You would have been able to see things through their eyes and I bet it wouldn’t have been as pretty a picture as you painted.

In specifc response to your question, yes there is an in between. It is called WAITING! Do what you feel comfortable with but err on the side of caution. If a guy bolts because you won’t give it up then he has done you a tremendous favor. If the relationship is strong he will be completely comfortable with waiting and will respect you more. It will be all the more special when it does finally happen.”

All excellent/ugly points, to which I would like to add one more. Well, actually just finesse the last one. BG will not — well rarely — yell at you for not keeping three feet on the floor on the first date. I hear about so many bland dates that it’s nice to hear about a sizzler once in while. However. Cool thing is, waiting is not just something you do to “keep the guy interested.” It’s something you do to make sure that the emotional stuff doesn’t have to sprint to catch up with the physical stuff — it often gets tired on the way. And when you do, I promise you a hot raunchy night of non-stop self-respect.

Okay? Write me when you hit four.

Breakup Girl

  4. , I can simply take them off. For I believe that even if I wear mtb shoes I will still want to take them off when I stop, simply to allow my feet to breathe. Plus, I have a WIDE foot and will most likely want the wider contact patch that is a LOOK cleat. We shall see.

  7. It really tells you something about Foly and Rowen when all they have is their imaginations to go by. Foly appears to constantly be preaching hatred on his blog. As liberal as they think they are they still live by many conservative, traditional and Christian principals themselves.

  10. Thank you, Alda, for your comment. The people are crying out for a voice, a leader. They do not want another employee on the corporate payroll in a governmental office.Frankly, I am disgusted and angry, too, with money corrupting our government. All money must be banned from campaigns. No exceptions.Thank you for sharing your thoughts.Kindest regards,

  14. The determining question was that Adam used to make sure was “how do you know it’s time to self-talk?” Glen answered “When i’ve made the decision to apply!”So, in other words use the eye patterns and words to flush out the strategy, then check, check, check. if it’s wrong he won’t light up when it’s fed back to him.

  19. Our culture doesn’t value silence. Maybe that is why Americans stand out as so loud when they are in other countries. I’ll have to think about it a bit more. But even if silence isn’t valued by the culture, it can and should be valued by us as individuals. Don’t rush to fill the silence. . . with something less valuable.

  22. This YT policy is a friggin' joke. XenutTV1 and ToryMagoo44's accounts were unfailry removed from YT. Now that it's in writing let's see if they stand by it.Restore XenuTV1 to show the world what good boys you are and how YT can be effectively used as a tool for free speech. YT doesn't seem to respect the first amendment of their corporation's country, how sad.

  24. No, that’s not been proven. They do believe that there may be a genetic “weakness” or abnormality that when triggered by outside factors (many things, including vaccines) it “sets off” Autism.

Nach vielen Jahren haben sich meine Augenbrauen meinem Willen gebeugt , heute wächst in der Mitte kaum noch etwas. Also durchhalten, wenn man etwas älter wird ist der Augenbrauenwuchs nicht mehr ganz so stark

  26. good bye or marks him as being gone (with exception of the sign out sheet). How are the kids accounted for at that time? I know there are millions of scenarios and I know that the kids are safe, but this is a lesson we need to learn more from, not to lock them in a prison but to review current practices and make sure they are up to par!!!

  29. tracey · Hi Camila – Yep, that sounds like me. I definitely have those moments where I’ll obsess over something … my weaknesses tend to be stationery, books and kitchen bits and bobs. I think it’s totally normal to indulge and splurge from time to time … it’s wonderful to take pleasure in the things that bring us joy.

  34. Drew you might be on to something, if I remember correctly though, they traveled to 1954, right, but you got me thinking that these could possibly be birthdates. Locke was born in 1956, and Kate and Hurley were born in 1977 so there could def be some sort of connection there, didn’t even think about that. maybe these dates could also be ties to the date that they were all tested by Richard ( based on my previous theory)

Nu meteen even in orde gemaakt.Misschien moet ik het weblog van de 23 Archiefdingen toch eens wat vaker lezen… staan verdomd handige dingen in :-)Ik ben niet zo bezig met promotie. Mij gaat het voornamelijk om te proberen de techniek onder controle te krijgen en de toepasbaarheid voor mij als privépersoon en voor mijn instelling te peilen. Ik ben niet van de marketing, vooral niet als het mijzelf betreft. Misschien een aandachtspunt voor me… Ik ga er eens over nadenken.
