Be honest with yourself about your own desires and requirements. If you have an online dating profile, make it known what level of commitment and intimacy you are currently looking for. Because compromise is a fact of life and an integral part of any relationship.
So, once you have gained an awareness of your genuine needs and desires—in a partner, as well as in the dynamic of a relationship—you need to express them clearly and openly. Okay, so you’re in a relationship—whether you’ve gone out on three dates or for 11 years, whether it’s vacuous, potentially meaningful, or definitely, downright serious—be present for it. If you’re in a committed relationship and that’s what you wanted and you love, trust and respect your partner, be grateful, because wow!
I must say, I am relieved not to be dating anymore. It wasn’t my intention to perpetuate any stereotypes about men and sex. How much time would you ideally like to spend with the other person, at first?
To clarify, I wrote that “men (gay and straight) seem quite capable of unattached sex.” In my experience, a fair amount of men did seem ready, willing and able to have sex at my beck and call. Whether you’re looking for someone or you’ve already met that intriguing new person, knowing your own needs in and wants for the relationship is the essential first step.
