I say all these with the strong caveat that she should be invested in you and of course a sexual relationship should have already been established. Investment equilibrium always applies. If she hasn't invested too much into you perhaps by not sleeping with you yet , then it would be uncomfortable for you to be investing too much into her. So, next time you're trying to date a girl and you feel like you've done everything correctly but for some reason the relationship isn't as strong as you want it to be, ask yourself if you've shown a genuine interest in dating her and whether this has been apparent with how you've tried to build your relationship with her.
As an example, after you slept with her, did you:. There's a whole spectrum of investment strategy there. There's no right answer, but realize that which option you go for will affect which sort of relationship you might have with her. At the end of the day, whether she meets you on that ground depends on what she wants and what she's willing to invest in you.
The road runs both ways - she might want option c , but maybe that's not what you want. Investment equilibrium is something that seems completely obvious, and should be to anyone who read the page chapter on Relationships in Magic Bullets , but I think it's something that is all too easily forgotten when you're learning seduction skills.

Posted September 4, I dont use SL for dating, however if I did, if it happens, it happens 2. Some players though, are apparently struggling with how to balance their two worlds.
In Japan, a year-old woman was recently arrested, and could face up to five years in prison, under suspicion of illegally accessing a computer and manipulating electronic data after her Second Life husband divorced her. She is quoted as saying that she was suddenly divorced without warning, and became very angry. Finding out that your partner, virtual or flesh and blood, prefers the company of others to your exclusive company is a bitter pill to swallow.
Although the story of scorned lovers acting out in vengeance is old and long, it seems awkward to hear it unfold on the virtual playing field because we want to believe that, despite the thriving culture of online gaming, players know the distinct boundary between real and imaginary. But who's to say that they don't? A book author can write about many couples in the same book, with no issues. But there are other people in SL who DO see their avatar as a direct extension of themselves.
They invest their real-life feelings and emotional responses in the actions and relationships of their avatars, and they often welcome or actively seek the possibility of meeting up with their SL friends in real life and taking those relationships 'to the next level'. People in this group who also have real-life relationships going are either intentionally cheating on their real-life partners, or are polyamorous and see no problem with maintaining multiple intimate relationships.
People in this group often also have a hard time realizing that not everyone's mind works this way, and that others could exist as described for the first group. They also often have a very hard time understanding why anyone would want an alt, or could have relationships with their alt that have nothing to do with some other avatar that they own. To people in the "my avatar is me" camp, that is cheating.
The ones who see their avatar as themselves will inevitably get hurt emotionally, when the one who doesn't see it that way can't give that same level of real-life emotional or relationship commitment. This still won't stop problems where one side intentionally lies to the other about their position or circumstances. But that is no different than dating in real life. And it still won't prevent someone who starts out in one camp from crossing the line emotionally and drifting into the other.
Some times a relationship may form with the best of intentions, and evolve in unexpected ways. Those are the risks you take with any relationship.
The best thing do do is before things get intimate, make sure you know which camp you and the other person are in. If you already have a RL girlfriend, and are just looking for in-world entertainment, make sure that any potential in-world intimate friends know and accept that, from the beginning. Being clear on expectations is an essential part of making any relationship work. Ignoring that is like knowing you could only marry a girl of the same religion that you follow, and of the same ethnicity, but choosing to date girls of any religious background or ethnicity.
At some point, that failure to make your own expectations clear, that your future bride has to be Black and Southern Baptist, for example, could blow up in your face when that Japanese Shinto-faith girl you've been fooling around with wants to marry you, or you suddenly realize she's become your lifemate, but that your family would never accept her as your bride.

It is strange, as I did this a few days ago, so when I you told me what I could do, I went to see if it was not here, and it was not! I read an article that the brain can't sort reality from virtual experiences. I don't want to offend anyone but I also don't know exactly how that feels. I seen a Buzz Feed article of what gay guys want to tell their heterosexual women friends it makes me sound my idea of having a male avi on SL sound terrible.
I been into anime, yaoi a bit at a time like Junjou Romantica and Sekaiichi Hatsukoi. I've also been in my head a bit. It might be weird but I'm confused I don't know how to say what I get.
I'm a late bloomer at the most part, just am. I've been putting myself in shows and movies like Family Guy in general not just for gay stuff, I just do when I'm tired, alone, or about to sleep. I feel like I would at least get it out of my head if I can do it here or something. I want to act like being a guy and be good if I do be one in SL without any important guys knowing that I'm a really girl. The feel would be gone. I would kind of do it for entertainment, for fun.
Not just that just the point of it kind of. There are lot of girls, and guys.. The problem you feel is a personal one, and it's in fact really simple, if you don't feel comfortable I'm genderfluid ik the feeling I say just do it I've done it b4 but lost the file due to hacking but inbrace who you are.
She wants to see you care and are not trying to just act like you care. She is a classy woman, too.

Then I start bugging him with the following annoying questions:. I usually already know the answers, but I just like hearing his responses. Anyways, now that you have an idea of what Jared is like, you will take either of the following sides:. However, I would not say that I have no interests and got nothing else to do aside from vying for his attention.
Most normal guys are probably like Jared—love playing games for hours and keeping girlfriend in line of vision. And Jared does exclaim random affirmations when I whine and bug him about it enough.
With that said, I should suggest a couple ideas of how to deal with these sort of independent-minded boyfriends. She says that neediness can be emotional constantly needing love validation , but can also come in the financial form. Pushing and pushing for what you need is a turn off. Step back, hopefully you will get the answer you want.
When you seek approval in an intimate relationship, it's often because you didn't receive sufficient love and approval from a significant person in your life as a child. To make up for childhood wounds, you seek validation from your partner. Most of us hate admitting this, but the reason we attract certain types of people is because our relationships are a reflection of our own self-worth. Until we recognize and heal our wounds, we continue to choose partners who reflect this sense of damaged self-worth back onto us.
I was taught that in order to be worthy of love, I needed to work very hard to put everyone's needs and happiness before my own. I believed that others simply needed me to make them happy.
And if I failed at making other's happy, I wouldn't be worthy of their love. And finally, I believed that without their love and approval, I'd be incomplete. Because of these beliefs, I equated attraction with neediness.

Give him compliments and give his ego a slight boost whenever he is. A jealous, possessive person is a person who is very insecure. Female attention seekers do it the weird way.
In other words, I wanted to attract someone who needed me: But what I found out was that this dynamic felt more like a burden than love. It felt smothering, controlling and sometimes like baby-sitting a child.
Sure, we all love a little attention, but some people take that need to a whole Your answer will tell you whether it makes sense to keep dating someone like this. Sep 2, She says that neediness can be emotional (constantly needing love to date someone who won't have many emotional or financial needs?.
