How to get off the back burner dating

There’s this expectation nowadays that we’re almost meant to be constantly available and in contact with others…

that we should be on our phones at every waking moment, ready to respond to any message sent to us. There used to be moments of space mixed into our days, where we would just have to wait for things.

It happens directly, through you and through you giving yourself space to be in touch with “you” (the “you” within). That’s not to say that women in today’s world don’t need space in their own lives. What I’m saying is that, for men in particular, there’s a part of our masculine soul that hungers greatly for pockets of time where we can be left completely alone… With my male friends, there have been times where we hang out doing an activity and maybe say 10 words or less to one another over the period of many hours…

This is where you recharge your metaphorical batteries… It is in our best interest to give our partner as many opportunities as possible to have space in their life and this very easy to do when we understand it benefits the relationship immensely. and if someone asked how it was hanging out with them, we’d probably both say it was great.

We didn’t have Candy Crush to play while sitting on the toilet.

We didn’t have social media to check while gassing up our car.

We didn’t have stories to post while sitting in the doctors office. or if you were at home, you might be on the phone with someone on a landline…

We texted constantly for about five days but then he suddenly stopped.And believe it or not, I had a guy send me virtually this same question in hopes that I would discuss it at a speaking engagement.To answer your question, I want to quickly tell you what I cover in this article: Over the course of the last decade and a half, texting has increasingly become a constant part of waking life.Without space, it almost feels as though this constant activity is like a vortex that pulls us into it.We can get caught up in it, thinking about and reacting to the happenings streaming through our smartphone into our head.
