Hey ladies, I have a question.
I've been talking with a number of women on some dating sites. There are a couple that I'm especially interested in, but they're not exactly forth-coming. I'm a very persistent person, so when I get sight of something I want, I keep after it. But, in my dating life, I've done my best to reign that in, and just abandon women who don't reciprocate my efforts. Because I naturally assumed that they just weren't interested.
But, this day and age, women are getting flirted with/messaged every five seconds, and understandably get standoffish, and somewhat jaded. With a few of the women, my persistent side will get the best of me, I'll write them again, and they'll apologize and resume the conversation. Or, I'll be talking to another guy and he'll tell me that his wife wouldn't give him the time of day at first, but he kept on, and eventually she relented, now they're married, etc.
So, I'm not sure what the happy medium is. When does persistence cross the line into harassment? How am I suppose to tell the difference between active disinterest, and them just ignoring me because it's the auto-play "no thank you" attitude/response?
And finally, when dealing with a standoffish woman, what insider tips would you give for chipping away at her defenses?
