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.

  2. When I was diagnosed with Osteo,, I asked my Doc how it happened. Her answer – your diet up until you were 10! It certainly is worth the effort to raise children on balanced diets.

  5. The demographic question is a valid one, but cutting off Islamism by deporting those aligned with radical mosques and reducing immigration to a more sustainable level, would allow the situation to stabilize, instead of constantly worsening

  9. Are you’re parents going to still be in the house? I don’t think you should do it…But, if you are, you could convince your parents to go on a holiday for a few days (depends how old you are)…

  14. Thanks . I too had been thinking about the pipes. I decided that I thought that they could have been indiscriminately included for so many reasons that I couldn’t quite decide which version sounded more plausible to me. Your is as good as any, and probably closer the Occam’s Razor position in any event.I was fortunate enough to encounter some related tribes (Tay and…I forget which others) in the far north of Vietnam. Gentle, happy folk.It’s perhaps a measure of the impotence and futility of an era or the will of the world when beauty can be regarded as an effective means of political commentary/criticism. Oy.

  15. If you look in the upper left corner you will see ( MA-4) That is the numbering sequence that Masco used. My guess is that it is a Masco Amp. The 4 would be an earlier unit. Plus thatcircuitry would fit what they used as well.Keep On HarpinJoey “Brasso” Welsh

  16. Impotent males by no means experienced it so good. Viagra pioneered the oral remedy for Erectile Dysfunction. As well as the baton, it seems, has been transferred to Cialis. Between, Levitra also designed its existence felt. But Cialis is definitely the long term drug which has the globe on its ft.

  19. Most importantly, don’t continue to pursue someone who has no interest in you. If you’re communicatingwith someone online who just seems too good to be true,there’s a chance they may be. Ultimately you are going to discover somebody that totally matches exactly what you desire.

  20. Dad and I are so proud of you and the work you do you. I know it can’t always be easy, but the results you produce are so beautiful that you make it look like it is. I personally always look forward to your “end-of-the-year” video and this year’s production didn’t disappoint. Even that “out-take” photo from our shoot made me smile.

  22. The simplicity of this delicious dish is beautiful. I omitted the shrimp paste which was supposed to top the final dish, because a couple of our family members are allergic. But, I may just have to make myself a solo Eggplant Salad topped with shrimp paste someday. Combine the mashed eggplant, cubed tomatoes, and cubed onion. Eggplant Salad (Click Here: Panlasang Pinoy)

  24. No puedo opinar sobre el live action de Kimi ni Todoke, no vi ni el anime. Tengo ganas de ver el dorama de Paradise Kiss, pero aún no encuentro fansub que lo tenga como proyecto T.T… Me encanta la actriz que tomaron para el papel protagonico, Keiko Kitagawa (a quien conocí por su papel de Sailor Mars en el live action de Sailor Moon) *.*

  29. Tuohon siivousjuttuun liittyen, löysin tällasen jutun etsiessäni vinkkejä netistä. Kommentti kuvaa mielestäni erinomaisesti yleistä asennetta siivoukseen. “Tiedoksi vaan, että on keksitty aineet eri käyttötarkoituksiin. Autoanikaan en pesis fairylla, koska se vie kaiken rasvan ja pintajännityksen maalipinnasta. ja meillä siivoukseen on kotonakin omat puhdistusaineet, ei mitää etikoita.”

  31. 4% of the population is gay in rich countries? You don't have to be poor to be gay! Might want to reword that first sentence so it's clear that 4% is an across the board figure, rich, poor, or right down the middle. :)

  32. In other news, full credit to the fireys, volunteers, and others who have managed to save hundreds of homes and ensured no loss of human life in the WA bushfires. I hope that Margaret River can pull together and recover from the awful fires that have been tearing through there this week.

  33. As long as your ethernet port is working, you can download the drivers you need off of the internet. If you don’t have the ethernet driver, download it from another computer and put it on CD or a flash drive. (SORRY @LegionGame, I replied to the wrong person)

  35. lustratia dupa 22 de ani este “vax-albina”. daca noi romanii eram intr-adevar cei care au facut revolutia, si nu “serviciile”, procedam imediat si exact cum au facut francezii dupa razboi cu majoritatea colaborationistilor.
