They would sooner wait to get a written notice in the mail that you’re really, truly interested in them than to follow up too much and potentially make you uncomfortable.[Note: I'm not endorsing the concept of alpha- and beta-males, especially not in the MRA sense; I'm merely quoting--and borrowing language--to denote more shy, less confident guys.Afterward, I shot him an e-mail acknowledging that I was not at my best that night but that things were getting less crazy.A week later, he sent me a very polite e-mail back essentially wishing me a nice life. He's not intimidated by you; he's just not that into you.That guy is still a man; he's not a man-child (i.e., an omega male). Women write to me all the time wondering how often it's okay to call, text and email a new man.If he is not calling you, asking you out, etc., he. But wait--EMK has an addendum: Beta guys are the ones who have more kindness than confidence. They’re so passive as to be, well, almost feminine in nature.They are not going to put themselves on the line for rejection until it’s 100% clear that you like them.
Don't take career advice from someone who doesn't have a job; roll your eyes when obese people lecture you about nutrition; and don't take relationship advice from single people (says the single person about to give relationship advice).Besides, I promptly deleted his contact information (I believe in a clean break) and continued to date other people. And this isn't just my own baggage speaking; I've seen my friends set themselves up for some bull$hit by guys who are just not that into them but more than content to string them along, because it's easier than just saying "no." Seriously, ladies: let the guys do some work.I believe solidly in "he's just not that into you." I believe that if a dude likes you, he will ask you out. I mean, you don't have to put them through hoops, but don't offer yourself up on a platter.His is to give to you attention, phone calls, texts, emails and requests to take you on dates.You do not initiate phone calls, texts, emails at this stage. You return his calls, respond to texts and emails, and say yes or not to his requests for dates.
