Fear of rejection online dating
I am meaning how men are forced to be the ones to initiate, or else nothing’s ever happening for you.
I had the same fantasies of being Terry Bogard or Van Damme or Jeff Speakman that every other would-be ninja warrior had.
Anyone you talked to online could be a murderer, or so it seemed.
Even as people got over that, a stigma lingered around online dating—that you must be desperate, or weird, to try it.
I've had several first dates where we enjoyed each other but things didn't heat up enough intellectually, spiritually and physically, to go to the next step only to get texts or emails along the lines of "Most men I meet can't WAIT to see me again!
" (That is an exact quote.) Another potential date (this one was three to four years ago, but the memory is clear) and I texted back and forth about when and where to meet.
