Hello Gonegirl, We all have patterns in relationships and sabotaging connections with potential partners is very common. It has to do with our early attachment anxious or secure and the attachment we had with our caregivers ends up getting repeated in romantic pursuits. Expectation gets a bad rap. To me, expectations are needs that are communicated poorly it misunderstood.

I recently published a post here on TB on finding your ideal partner http: You can work through this! Thank you for your kind and insightful comments. I realize I have a lot of work ahead. One thing still keeps on puzzling me though. The guy I mentioned told me he missed me.

I said I do too, but that I am a bit confused about the whole situation and suggested we meet instead of text.

I know there is no use in giving this anymore thought, but really…one cannot but wonder, why bother saying such empty words in the first place…. You must be logged in to reply to this topic. Please log in OR register.

I understand your anxiety, but just remind yourself, as Anita said that this is only momentary, that it will go away. The beginning of dating someone is complicated. This will create an atmosphere for a healthy relationship. I would advise you to be patient, let him lead your first encounters and with a few more dates you will be able to know him better and know why he acts the way he acts.

Do not ever think that he is not that into you, he is if you guys already kissed, but if you act like you are more into him that he is into you, that will scare him away. Cultivating patience is a skill that takes a lot of time but gives great results. When you are patient and learn to accept the perfect timing of things, everything that will come to you will feel natural and not forced. Hence, it will feel better and probably become a better experience.

Try to learn to wait, to meditate and wait until the universe finds your energy so that the things that happen around you are meant to happen to you. That helped to read that. Do I have to sit around and wait for him to initiate? Or can I text him to ask? Try to live your life. I know how it feels.

Confused about love and and modern day dating. - Tiny Buddha

I always think of that anxiety as a trick of the mind, because when we kiss someone we like there is a whole package of hormones going up to your head. This will help you be more patient. If he comes back to you is because is meant to be, if he does not is because is meant to be that way too. Always keep in mind that you are the one worth being chased by. Letting our anxiety dictate the decisions we take is like letting a baby decide what they want to eat. Being patient is all you need. I asked if he would be up for doing something this weekend.

He did reply and said he did want to meet up again, and asked me which day works. So we decided on a day!
