Dating Strategies: Interpreting Signs & Behaviors
I've been on so many dates during the past 14 years (with extended periods of monogamy) that I really could be called an expert. I could probably develop a business advising people on how to date and how to interpret the signals coming from your potential liaisons.
Last night was a good example: she was kinda flaky when we met on dating site, and then I told her I had met someone and was stepping away. Then I contacted her when things went south with WID, and she sent her number. We exchanged a bunch of texts then met up in a fancy cocktail bar.
She greeted me with a handshake (kinda distant; usually you can get something more friendly.) I sat down and noticed she looked older than her photos, which were either retouched or not recent. But it was acceptable.
We spent about 2 1/2 hours together, and it turned out we had a lot in common. But it was hard to get a read on whether she was attracted to me. Parting, she hugged me and thanked me. No mention of another date from her.
While the date was "good," she doesn't appear interested. But then, there may be a surprise.....
