Dear Geoff, Glad to hear you found someone special, and even happier that you spoke up.Most of the people that write about online dating write about what’s wrong with it. I mean, that’s what news is – emphasize the bad, misery loves company, etc.Friends of both genders tell that their experiences have been hard in different ways.My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.And in my experience, neediness is on of the biggest killers of attraction in a relationship, especially if it comes from a man.[Free Guide] I have created a practical guide to share with you 4 techniques to reduce neediness and regain your confidence (and your girlfriend’s attraction). In a long distance relationship guys can easily fall in the neediness trap by suffocating their girlfriends with a lot of text messages. If you are the one that sends her more texts than she sends you, then make sure to either cut down from the number of texts that you send her daily and/or encourage her to send you more texts.
Ask her to send you a text any time she thinks more intensely of you, or anytime she does something interesting, or any times she sees a yellow car etc.I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.I did meet my girlfriend online, but after a year of painful struggle, meaning hardly any dates despite being educated, employed, and reasonably attractive.Yes, that could be a little text game you could be playing…Any time one of you sees on the street a yellow car, he/she should send a text messages to the other partner.( It happens very often that we send them a text message and then we keep checking our phone every 5 minutes for the next 3 hours, even though there’s no sound that says “you’ve got a message”.
