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.

  3. DurWinningRight lets make sure that there are some Sheen one liners in there that we all know and love such as : It is what it is and its a weapon of the trolls made of plastic and light buttons and nothing else. In fact i might just write a script right here. Scene 1. Charlie Sheen in room with client ex offender.Charlie Sheen : So hows it going bud ?ex offender : It is what it isCharlie Sheen: It is what it is? What a dumb expression it is what it is and you are who you are ;clearly goodbye.

  7. I like all these comments –AltaBird, BigLightBasin & vast Vail were all bigger sooner. True. But, I prefer skiing Squawpine. Anyway, compared to the true mega-resorts, these are all still mini-megas. Let’s see Homewood>Sugarbowl connect the new acquisitions. Or, lift access Wolverine Cirque all the way to BCC. Then, the US would have a mega-resort to acclaim!

  13. BTW, because she and her child are obese. In a slick way, it implies that they’re not starving. She is just lazy. However, a lot of people don’t realize that poor nutrition, cheap foods, also, causes obesity. They could be living off of a bag of potatoes, and peanut butter sandwiches, and it would cause obesity. Sometimes it’s not always you eat too much, it can be what you eat that will cause obesity.

  15. Wrest the reins of “private gains/socialized losses” back from government, the Fed and the banksters.Remember this all started when Bill Clinton was putting the screws on the banks to take bad loans.

  19. "Chicago does have a reasonable strategy for survival as a city (i.e., not turn into Detroit)"Yeah, you wish Sailer. Chicago is better than Detroit, but not much better. It has no business hosting the Olympics. For that matter, even your hometown of LA is such a hole now that it should never again even consider being an Olympic contender.

  20. FOR THE FINAL RECORD, and to correct Alex X.In the last 2 months, APA has hired 4 new mailroom staff, 2 new assistants, and 5 agents. They let go of one agent in that time, and nobody else. They also promoted 3 mailroom staffers to assistants. APA is growing.

  21. Well, at one time a man who was balding was deemed unattractive, and it was an embarrassment for him. So if a character in the movies or literature was portrayed as bald, he may have been somewhat bumbling or un-cool, silly. But with the shaved head the crowning glory of so many men these days–particularly athletes–a bald man may be considered very hip, sexy…And in some cases, a bald character is just bald, and it signifies nothing.

  28. rubenmoon Why would I work really hard at making my page the way I want it to look when other people will only physically see way not the same way? The sequence is all different with an added post that I don’t see from my computer. That’s so weird, to design something for people not to see it the way you designed it or sequenced it?????
