Have An Opinion?
I could date them yes. But she couldnt be SO/gf (i dont remember what SO stands for) or even less partner. I would be patient in the beginning but the more i open up with her not at all, the more annoying it will get. To a point where id stop caring about any potential relstionship or future, allthough i might still keep dating her. At that point if she changes her mind shell have to be obvious about it for me to notice since I've stopped caring. And even if i notice i might not still feel the same, attraction is a, if not the most, complex thing in human interactions, and i might just not feel that way anymore. Maybe i do again maybe not. Im sure both other guys and gals can identify with that.
If someone isn't open about their feelings I can accept that as long as we work on it together if it becomes an actual relationship, but no affection? Definitely not, if there is no affection shown to me then there is no way that I won't just feel like this person has no interest in me. I'm married to a woman who has been this way then cheated on me and left. Even if you are just dating someone if you are affectionate to them and emotionally invested in the person then its heartbreaking to have that not be reciprocated
No. I'm very affectionate and open myself, and I feel a sense of stability when my partner is the same. It's how I show love. And if we share how we feel and talk things out, I'll be more understanding of my partner, feel closer to him, and feel as though we're on the same page. I've attempted to date a couple of guys who were more emotionally closed off and not really affectionate, and they just left me feeling confused, unwanted and as if I was just bothering them. I quickly lose interest in guys like that because I really need that emotional connection and support with someone.
what if he could do all that, but just couldn't cry during movies, would it still be a bad deal?
@DevylasArsaukas76 I don't see why anyone would *have* to cry during movies so I don't really care
No. That's a deal-breaker for me. I'm a very affectionate person. I love giving and receiving all kinds of affection. I couldn't be happy with an unloving guy. I also couldn't be with a guy that didn't openly express his feelings. Couples need to make each feel wanted, loved and emotionally safe with each other. Without affection and without expressing your feelings, the relationship would feel cold. Couples would feel distant from each other. Relationships can't thrive without affection and expression
I guess you could but I am what you would consider "affectionate needy" ha
I think I would but I myself am like that so maybe it could be a little difficult. I mean, if I can't show it and he can't either, who will take the first step?
it's peeling an onion, I would want openness but at appropriate times and level. ideally, I want to she she is emotionally healthy.
Nope. While the guessing game can be fun, open and honest communication is necessary for every relationship.
Only in the beginning after that she needs to show it in some way. Either by actions or by words, preferably the first if she doesn't do both.
Being emotionally open is a work in progress. Maybe they just never met the person they could trust enough to do so.
I've done that before. Really don't like it. You never know where you stand with them. Do they really love you are not? Some use not expressing emotions as an excuse to use people. "how can it be cheating if I didn't say I love you? ". Someone actually said that to me once. They didn't have a problem with me saying it though..
It would be extremely difficult. Most all of my girl friends are friends with benefits, so romance doesn't get in the way. As long as she wants to fuck as much as myself, we are good.
I have it's boring as fuck I'm open and honest person affectionate passionate you only get one life to Express yourself
No, I'd rather have someone that is very clingy, but I couldn't be with someone that wasn't affectionate enough.
I have but I dont "date" looking to meet Mr. Right.I "date" to have company when I attend events, not for affection and I give a flying F--k about a mans feelings, I dont even want to know he has any.
Either one of those things is a complete dealbreaker.
I'm a very needy person when I'm in a relationship so I wouldn't do that.
No, i need an affectionate girl in my relationships.
be fine if we understood each other as i can be like that myself
Im not very affectionate or open about my feelings unless im drinking.Honestly i probably could not because i need someone that is to balance me out, but at the same time it can't be Too much or im grossed out
No i Made that mistake before , it felt like i was the only one giving into the relationship
If we're mature adults, I think we're too old for that.
I tried to, but the woman I tried it with just got too strange
When you say date, do you mean bang? Or be in a relationship?
Just date for a while and then maybe friends.Not that into hiding feelings or lack affection.
No, not at all. That would undermine effective communication, which is key.
I wouldn't as it would be weird for someone to not be open with their feelings.
Couldn't date anyone if there was no spark or fireworks. Just be hang with a friend I guess
I was with him for 15 years and no, I would not date anyone who is emotionally unavailable EVER AGAIN
Dating, maybe, for a short time. A relationship, no
Why the f would I do that?Might as well date a statue.
What is the point exactly?
I don’t dare for money or sex so why wouid I date at all if they were closed off. I wouidbt be getting anything out of it. I’m closed off enough as it is. If they are closed off but interested in being lite connected, I can relate and accept it. I want to be more comfortable with expression myself. If I can’t work with someone to beore open, we are no good for each other.
I don’t need verbal expression though. Physical would be sufficient although verbal is helpful I suppose.
They’ll usually open up when the relationship reaches that point. We’re all social creatures.
My ex was like that and that was one of the reasons that failed.
No way.. I'd suffocate and resort to depression!
Ideally no, but it depends on how extreme it is.
Because of they don't care then why should I? I'll just get over it being under someone else
Yea but I wouldn't be as entertained.
No shyness kills literally.
I could, I just wouldn’t prefer it.
I could, but it wouldn't be easy.
I need her to show some affection.
No I’m very affectionate not over top.
Always be open n honest
Yes, maybe it will helpful for anyone
Yes but it's hard
no I could never date a damn virgo,
That would be preferable
not gonna work out
No way! That’s a deal breaker for me.
I would wonder whats stuck up in her rude... 😂
Sounds like my ex
Yeah, why not?
Nope, not again.
No, why would I date them at all then?
I dont date
