I was on this dating website and the owner of the website who is also a "dating coach" said men only talk to women for one of 3 reasons:
- to make nice pleasentries (ie. was introduced to you by a family member or through a friend)
- networking/business relationship
- out of interest (whether sexual or romantic + sexual)
So how do you know when its one over the other? And why "Because he likes you as a friend" isn't one of the choices?

When a man is willing to invest in you, whether by listening, attentively and affirming you, validating your feelings and not offering solutions to your problems, unless asked, he is not just making pleasantries, or networking. However, there is another form of relationship this coach seems to have left out. That is a genuine friendship, without a networking/business agenda, or romantic/sexual desires. A friend will invest in you, without expecting anything in return. They will receive any benefits from the friendship with gratitude, as a blessing. Even the spouse will fit this category, with the benefit of sex, which exceeds anything you can experience without the commitment and challenge of marriage. That is because the commitment and challenge of marriage results in a lifelong exploration of ways to please the other person physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.0
