In a recent episode of my favorite TV show, two of characters ended up in bed together. Afterwards, gorgeous and highly masculine man turned to woman and asked, "What's going on here? Where are we going with this?"
"Come on. I thought I was girl here."
In other words, a real man should want to avoid commitment like H-Bomb.
This may just be a scene from TV, but too many real-life women find themselves turned off when a man shows interest in moving a relationship forward. And whenever I relate a story about a guy I know who wants a commitment from his girlfriend, one of my female friends will comment, "He sounds like girl in relationship."
The thing is, media (particularly women's magazines, which brainwash us into believing that we have to "get" a guy to marry us) promote falsehood that marriage is goal of every female's existence. Men just want sex.
We walk around believing this nonsense, and when it doesn't match up to what we encounter in real life (a guy who really wants to be with us, who is monogamous, and eager for commitment), we automatically assume there's something wrong with him.
The next time you meet a guy, and he actually calls when he says he's going to, stay course. Don't freak out. Don't assume he's a loser. Go out with him again. Give him a chance to grow on you. Give yourself a chance to decide whether he might be guy who could make you happy for rest of your life.
