It’s time for Ask Sujeiry! The podcast where I answer listeners dating and relationship questions and give my no-nonsense advice. Today I being used and played for sex! Here is the relationship dilemma I received:
I dated this guy for a few months and I felt he and I had a connection and had a lot of things in common. We even flew to the Dominican Republic together for a friend’s wedding. Everything was great and I guess it is always the beginning. And then, he eventually got a job offer (he was unemployed when we met) and it was great. He was busy learning and training. He’s an accountant, which I understand can be a very demanding job.
As time went on, the less I was hearing from him. No texts, no calls, NOTHING. It was always me initiating conversations and receiving short responses. Four months into the dating phase, he tells me he doesn’t desire to rush into things because he doesn’t feel ready (red flag, I think) and doesn’t feel a ‘connection.’ In my head I am thinking, of course, there is no connection, we barely talk and there’s no communication. I let him know what and how I feel about it. Told him we need to communicate, talk, have open conversations. He says it’s more than just texts and calls. I get it, but how do we get to cross that bridge? I felt he was no longer interested in the person that I am and was only concerned with having sex. Long story short, things ended.
He did say a few things that did hurt my feelings: He stated I need to grow up, that he felt he was dating a little girl in a 30 year old body. That a relationship takes more than just texts and calls.
He failed to understand where I was coming from. It was always me initiating conversations to receive short responses back like, “I am a bit too busy now.” I don’t think I was asking for much. Simply a phone call here and there and to see that he was actually interested in me, like sending me a text saying good morning.
He would go MIA for weeks. I am in no way exaggerating. On two different occasions, we stopped talking for 3-4 weeks. And he would appear back in my life like nothing happened and expect things to be the same. And I wasn’t ok with that. How do you go MIA and expect me to go out of my way (he lives an hour away from me) to have sex? I felt used the last two times we hung out.
What do you think? I honestly feel I was not asking for much. What’s your dating advice?
