Even if you want to pull out the dictionary again and start with the definition of love there are at least 4 types - agape, eros, philia, storge - so you and he could still be talking apples and oranges. You figure hey, you could love this guy, or you could hate him, or you could feel somewhere in the middle which is definitely frustrating but happens sometimes. However just because nothing is progressing at the rate you'd like doesn't mean he's not considering it. Symbology is not as important as love, and loyalty. Also, check your requirements; perhaps they are unrealistic. He went quiet for a couple days, and I thought that would be it, there would be no more date with him.
Logical doesn't mean telepathic either. Sex drives in people can vary over the years, with situations, with health issues. What you manage is how you exhibit your feelings, but the feelings are the same. If we imagine Star Trek, Data was often perplexed by the irrational behavior of human beings. But you're so logical that you can't even give him a chance, you just have to move on to someone who's going to give you what you want.
But while that sounds like a good thing, it's really not, because you wish you could forget all that and just enjoy yourself. No woman needs to stay with an emotionally damaged man, that will slowly destroy her. For example, let's say you get upset easily this is a bug, not a feature , then you will be better off with someone whose tolerance level is higher than yours. The way a 7 yr old and an adult receive disappointing news exemplifies the point. So where did he come up with this premise? They examine how they feel, they compare it to what they know and believe, and if it fits, it is love. People who function from the intellectual tower are emotionally distant and they subconsciously keep everyone else at a distance even without even realizing it.
These types of men often have miserable women partners who may seek to have that intimate emotional connection elsewhere. I saw guys tease beautiful women and make jokes about them to their faces. Communicating with a man who has an analytical mind can be challenging for people who are more emotional. While that might work out because you'll find someone that you truly feel comfortable with and really like, in the short term it really sucks because all your dates seem like a waste of time. There's usually insufficient data accounting for the decisions of those robotic types in my opinion. Due to the lack of emotional intelligence which, believe me, is what I recognize is really important to succeed in this world, as humans are social and emotional creatures and need to relate to each other , I have been unable to sustain a real friendship or relationship of any kind outside of the family. You're just built that way or something.
Everyone brings their background with them to the first date and a new relationship, even if they're trying to change and be better next time. For some reason, this person appreciates me for all I am, emotionally stunted and all. This is where so many girls go wrong. He seems to be unable to accept that you may have a different opinion to his own and that you do not concede to his PoV. To stay in his favor make sure to get in good with his closest companions. You just need to be ready to do whatever you must do to take care of yourself and your needs…like move out or just start dating other people.
He has just figured out how to calm his emotions down so he can look at a situation for the facts instead of what the emotions can twist the facts into. Once can merely try to control how it is exhibited. However if you do, then test your relationship without these extra efforts. The shortcoming typically of someone who fails to get along with others is a failure to understand enough about other people to factor into their logic. You wish you could just turn your brain off most of the time so you could have more fun and try to just live in the moment. I love being able to see what I have created at the end of the day! People with masculine behaviors, on the other hand, listen for information and to solve a problem. I've been going out with a man for quite some time.
A logical person would see if something was right or wrong for them, and act accordingly. Now, if you've thought something through and come up with a good reason why it would fail, it makes sense to not do it, right? Real life tells us that a large percentage of women will say there is nothing wrong, when in point of fact they want their man to push them to talk about it. Are you a Tinder type of person, or more like the e-harmony kind? On the rare occasions that these partners want to cuddle, their embrace is perfectly warm, loving, and peaceful. Since you're so crazy logical, your only reaction is to shrug. They want you to be happy and may feel that by telling you that he likes you, you would feel good about yourself and your situation. As much as this kind of man loves to live in the moment and experience everything with all of his senses, he still has dreams and aspirations he wants to work to achieve.
To me a logical person feels romantic love, but can look beyond that and determine if the feelings are something they should proceed with, based on the others actions and behaviours instead of just the feelings of love. But you might have noticed that the way that you approach first dates is kind of bumming you out. While this will keep you on your toes, it will also keep your partnership fresh and exciting. So listen up, and take whatever he says seriously. And, quite often, the heavy artillery gets activated. I grew up this way because my parents were such people.
