If he won't agree it seems to me it tells you a lot about his willingness to put his desires on hold for even for a short while. By Rachel Shatto. I expect you to treat me with the same courtesy" is excellent because as a general rule it's healthy and smart to be direct in relationships and in communication in general as well. Ultimately the object of dating is to get married. Anything less and it means one or both parties are underwhelmed and will only be settling for lack of any other options. Search for qualities other than those valued by the masses.
End of story.
If a man, after getting to know you, decides you are not for him, it will be all the more heartbreaking if you put all your time and emotions in one basket, acting as if you two were bf gf when you were nothing of the sort. Be realistic. Likewise, there are women who wait for a certain number of dates before sleeping with a guy, or who wait until a guy is her boyfriend, who still end up getting left or heartbroken. It is certainly not a confidence builder. But, I am equally scared of pushing for something that is happening naturally and perhaps making him feel pressured and stressed about something that is easy and great, naturally.
