    Default LII man dating ESI woman - any thoughts?

    Ok, I met this girl at church and we really hit it off. I am starting to like "hang out" with her, in a flirty, dating like way. However, she tolerates no ambiguity. She wants to know exactly what is going on between us. To her, there is no maybe. There is either yes or no. And "not yes" means "no" to her. I would rather like hang out, take her to concerts, dinner and crap like that, and in general not commit to marry her RIGHT FREAKING NOW. We just met.

    I have headaches thinking about her.

    She would be my super ego.

    She does not want to get married. I was kidding. But she really needs to know. I mean, she really wants to know where she stands. I was exaggerating.

    what is maybe?
    shuffling your feet and saying "um, iunno..." versus firmly and decisively saying "i can't make a decision right now because of x" are different things. depending on her level of emotional investment she might be fended off with a little explanation and clarity behind your thought process about it, whatever it is. it can become sort of a cycle where more equivocation on your part feeds into her emotional need for clarity which can make her seem clingy which can make you unsure etc etc (if she's anything like me)

    why are you even dating her if she gives you headaches? are you going to continue?

    also (if you're going to keep dating her for whatever reason) try to make sure your actions and words line up. if you say you don't want to be serious, don't drop hints about commitment or call her constantly. count on her listening to your behavior and other clues at least as much as she listens to your words, and taking it seriously.

    Those are good insights. I type her ESI because she reminds me a lot of you, Lungs! The way she talks and thinks, just reminds me of you. Anyway, I like her.

    Thanks.

    That's certainly in the realm of possibility assuming you typed her accurately. Conflictors get along well superficially during the early stages of interaction.

    Maybe it's a gamma thing, but she might just want to know what kind of relationship you're looking for from the outset. She may not even have an issue with a more friends with benefits style arrangement, she probably just wants to know what you want, so both of your wants/needs can be given a change to align. What would piss her off is saying you want one thing and then expecting another.

    I've seen girls lose their minds over poorly defined relationship boundaries.

    Maybe she's just been in situations where she's been strung along before...or maybe she feels like guys tend to only hang out with her because they wanna jump her bones.
    I think you should tell her what you told us....that you want to hang out with her and do fun things with her for now...just be honest. If you feel wishy washy..tell her you feel wishy washy.
    And I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.

    I find super ego relations can be rather fun with a mylutual respect and maybe "awe" for their way of thinking.

    Like its easy to understand even if you totally disagree with them.
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If it’s a disease, it’s nobody’s fault. Yay empiricism.
