I have been dating a guy, on our 4th date he mentioned not believing in marriage because people can end up cheating or betraying you. His ex had cheated on him. Do you guys think his past hurt him to think this way and do you think he can change his opinion with time or right person?
Ps. After his ex, he said he dates a couple women but did not go over two dates because there was no connection.
I'm wondering if he is picking at my brain here and being cautious... I see it in his eyes and actions that he is still hurting and is taking it super slow, which is understandable. Four dates in 3 months... cautious right?
He is clearly hurt. But everyone can change, and I think it is weird for him to be dating you if he doesn't 'believe in marriage.' He is probably saying this to see if you are willing to go the extra length to stay with him.
He can change probably if he finds the right person. Many times when a person is hurt and they are with other person they ut a barrier to themselves with the new person as they dont want to be hurt again but in that person feels that way so I ask myself why then date or hang out again if they feel he or she is going to be betrayed again, what is the point then if they have that kind of mentality, they better remain single and not even date then.
