Why Men Pull Away

What is the reason why men pull away?

Let’s start with the first date or even before that the first conversation.
The first conversation can make or break the future of the potential relationship. In other words, the goal of the “first” conversation should be to make it stimulating enough for the other person to want a “second” Why men pull away - Go from Hello to I Doconversation – and this doesn’t happen by gathering “statistics” about the person. Maybe that’s why men pull away from you.
Here is what I mean: Many women who find themselves on the search for “the one” strike up casual conversations with potential suitors and only ask “interview style” questions.

  • “What do you do?”
  • “How long have you worked there?”
  •  “Where are you from?”
  • “What brings you here?”

While these types of questions are okay to ask, they fail to make the conversation stimulating and memorable for both parties.

Men have been told from day one if you want a woman than ask her questions so she will talk about herself. So let him do his thing, if you always come on too strong maybe that’s why men pull away, but if it gets quite. Help the man out by asking him a few open ended questions, because believe it or not men do like to talk about themselves as well. Then the key to getting a man to want that “second” conversation with you is dig a little deeper. This simply means that you need to use the first conversation to ask about his passions and interests. Not his job. Believe me; you’ll get a far better picture of a man by asking about his interests, as opposed to his job history!

If you want the “first” conversation to result in a “second” conversation, make the first one memorable by digging deeper and finding out more about the guy than what’s listed on his resume. If you go around interviewing men maybe that’s why men pull away.

Why Men Pull Away From Marriage

Let’s jump forward in time from that first conversation. You have been dating awhile and you feel its time for that sought after wedding ring. So you issue the ultimatum.
A reason why men pull away is the ultimatum. Using an ultimatum to get that wedding ring on your finger is like committing relationship suicide. If you feel the need to present your boyfriend with an ultimatum concerning your relationship then there is something wrong.

Ok the waiting game can drive you to desperation especially if you have been waiting a year or two. Desperation can lead to threats! Your desperation could be why men pull away.
Yes, ultimatum is just a fancy word for “threat”.  Women who throw marriage ultimatums at their boyfriends obviously don’t realize that this kind of pressure and “all or nothing” attitude commonly results in the demise of the relationship.

When is an ultimatum acceptable? Only when you are ready to deal with the truth and act on the response! If you give your boyfriend the “now or never” speech then you best be prepared to pack your bags and leave if he comes back with a “never” response. Staying in a relationship after he says “never” will only result in your losing all credibility and leverage in the relationship.
The ultimatum maybe why men pull away from you.

There is a much better way to get him to pop the question WITHOUT using threats and dangerous ultimatums.

Internet Dating Conwoman Caught

This story from my part of the world goes to show you its not just men preying on lonely women but women preying on lonely men as well. I find this madding when all people want is someone to love and others just rip them off.

A conniving Southland conwoman who met her partner on an internet dating site and ripped him off to the tune of $48,000 has been sentenced to eight months’ home detention.

Judge Kevin Phillips yesterday condemned the actions of 45-year-old Tisbury sickness beneficiary Diane Louise Boyd, saying she was a thoroughly dishonest and conniving conwoman who had a history of targeting vulnerable men and using their finances to her advantage.

“This woman got this man through an [internet] dating site, as she has in the past, and got hold of his finances and ripped him off,” the judge said.

She attempted to minimise her offending by making disparaging and inflammatory statements about her victims, the judge added.

Boyd took control of her 56-year-old victim’s finances after meeting him on the NZDating internet site and getting into a relationship with him.

She accrued $48,000 debt for the man, who had to borrow $25,000 to pay back bills.

Boyd was using the money to feed her gambling addiction, the judge said. The offending had had a major effect on her victim and his family and friends, “because you cut him off from them and that was part of your plan”.

Boyd, who is a grandmother, had committed similar offending in the past, the judge said.

“You get lonely men who desire female company and you use them to your advantage. You are a high risk of reoffending because you are a fraudster. You enter into relationships with males and rip them off and then you say it’s their fault, not yours.”

A primary reason Judge Phillips did not send Boyd to jail was to ensure she made reparation payments to the victim.

He ordered her to pay $10,000 reparation in instalments of $25 a week, beginning next month.

Background Check Online Date

Click to Background check your online date

During my search of relationship advice for people looking for love I came across this story. It’s one thats popped up in different forms over the years. The main point is that you can not rely on the  dating service you use to do this for you as they get 100’s of new people signing up every day so can not do a detailed check on everyone. Anyway heres the story. I’ve remove a few names.

“In 2009, I joined xxxxxxxx  because I wanted to have confidence that I was dating men I could trust around my young child. A company representative confirmed that they do background checks before allowing a prospective member to join and ensured that the membership is made up of “safe and responsible people.” Satisfied by that assurance, I paid the $$$$ membership fee. In the first 90 days, 46 men selected my online profile. I said “yes” to allowing 13 men to contact me, 10 of whom I actually dated. There was one man I dated for nine months who treated me like gold. I was shocked to discover that this man who had been in my home had two restraining orders against him – one involving firearms – from two different women, both occurring before he joined xxxxxxx. I found these records myself in a search of criminal records on the Internet after seeing a ##### show about the need to know who you are dating – and the possibility of secret pasts. I stopped dating this man after learning of his past, but he continued to try to contact me on Facebook. In my case, xxxxxxxx failed to deliver the very service they claim to provide – a “screened” pool of members who are safe to date. I respectfully requested a refund but was denied”

Now I don’t know about you, but before I date anyone online I do a quick background check before the first date. You just don’t know what sort of nutter is out there. Not that all online daters are nutters. There are some very lovely people indeed online. You don’t need to check everyone that contacts you. Just the one you wish to see in person. Its better to be safe than sorry.

One service that I recommend is eVerify.

Tips about Scammers

This story from thetimesnews.com is interesting. If you read between the lines I do believe that Ann may have been ripped off, she sounds pretty bitter. Not that I blame her. I think we would all love to hunt down these scammers and see justice done.

I know it can be hard, you think that you have found your sole mate, they say all the right things, then ask for money, you feel you know them, so you help them out then they ask for more money then before you know it you have no money left and once they have bleed you dry they disappear and you feel a fool.

So NEVER give any money to anyone unless you can afford to lose it. Do a Internet search on them and see if all the fact are true.

The good news is that there are real people out there looking for love just like you, you just need to find each other and you will.

Beware: Scammers via the internet finding new targets

October 19, 2011 10:13 PM

Computers and the internet are a fantastic resource but unfortunately it is one resource that is working against us. There are men posing as women and then taking large amounts of money from unsuspecting men who “fall for them.” This is also true of women. These scammers may originate from anywhere in the world.

Answer these questions with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Have you been on a dating or social site within the last six months?

Has someone ‘fallen in love” with you quickly?

Do they want to then use IM or email? (Certainly not Skype)

Do they claim to be a citizen, but working in another country?

Have they asked for money or for you to cash a check?

They have no family or friends to turn to — They are coming to visit you soon, but there is a problem concerning their visa and they are being fined (they do not have the money), or they have a sick relative, usually a child, or some other excuse. The scammers will use any excuse to get you to send them money. They will tear at your heart strings until you have nothing left and you are completely destroyed. Some victims have even committed suicide. These people are dangerous! The FBI warns to “cease all communication.” These people have terrorist connections. Your computer can be hacked into and have your personal information stolen while installing viruses onto your computer. This is not a game to the scammers; they do not like their money flow interrupted. You can expect to be threatened.

Note: the pictures you receive may not be the actual scammers but unknowing innocent people. Scamming is big business! Never trust a phone number or IPO address. They may want to send you a surprise but you need to send them money first. They will want you to do them a favor, because they love you, just don’t you end up in jail. They love you and need you — your money.

They are cold, heartless and ruthless!

Rich and famous use Online Dating to find love

Even the  rich and famous use Online Dating to find love. This story from philly.com made me smile. Isn’t nice to know you can find love online by being yourself and your new partner loves you for who you are not what you are.

Professional poker player Beth Shak went on Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker” last year, but was less than thrilled with the three men host Patti Stanger fixed her up with.

Shak thinks she was deliberately set up with inappropriate guys.”Do you think they want to give you somebody that you are going to fall head over heels in love with? How boring.”

But Shak took matters into her own hands. She started checking out online dating sites.

Why was this gorgeous and rich divorcée trolling the Internet for dates?

“I didn’t want [a future partner] to know who I was . . . if I go to a red carpet event, then they know who I am. Or if I’m in a poker tournament, they know who I am. I wanted to just meet somebody under the premise of them not knowing anything about me.” The Internet provided her with that anonymity.

For the past several months she’s been dating a police officer she met online.

“He’s a cop and he’s in the Navy reserves. He’s a regular guy. And he knew nothing about me. And he doesn’t know anything about poker, shoes, anything and he’s like ‘fine.’ He’s one of the most secure men I’ve ever met in my life.”

” I’m finally dating a man who is just, like, ‘OK. Whatever you want, Beth.’ He kind of ignores it. Some people used to be so intimidated by it. They would look in my closet and say, ‘Really? This is what’s in your closet?’ And I’d think to myself, ‘I’m not asking you to buy me shoes, so why are you commenting on what’s in my closet?’ Right? It’s crazy.”

Internet Dating Scam in Kentucky

Now when I read the first line of this report I had to laugh, See below, Up until now has Kentucky been protected from Internet scams in some way? Maybe they just got connected to the Internet. Who knows? But on a more serious side this scam has been around for a while. Lets stop and think for a minute, why would an American soldier stationed in Afghanistan need to send a package via an African country for it to get to him. From what I’ve seen on the news most things go via Germany to Afghanistan. You need to think with your head not your heart when someone asks you to do something that does not seem right. And not do it.

Kentucky State Police say an Internet scam has made it’s way to Kentucky.

Police say people think they are helping out an American soldier stationed in Afghanistan, but in reality, they are the middle man in sending stolen property to Africa.

Police say it all started with a dating website.

“In this case, claimed to be a military soldier stationed in Afghanistan unable to receive these packages and needed their help to get these packages and forward them on,” said Don Trosper with Kentucky State Police in London.

Police in New York contacted Kentucky State Police while investigating fraudulent credit card use.

Police say the items bought on that stolen credit card were shipped to an address in Sexton’s Creek in Clay County. As police investigated further they found out it was part of a bigger scam.

“This person in Clay County thought they were doing a good deed for a military personnel,” said Trosper.

Scam victims agree to help the soldier from the website, and also agree to have packages sent to their home and forward them on to an address in Africa. When police went to the residence they found many items bought with the stolen credit card.

“They said yes that they had received packages and had instructions to forward those packages on to country in Africa,” said Trosper.

Police say people need to be aware of scams like this one. Officials at Whitaker Bank say most scams can be avoided.

“Never ever give out your information over the website over the phone, your debit card numbers your Visa because there are people always there to scam,” said Assistant Vice President at Whitaker Bank Janet Sandlin.

And if you suspect anything suspicious, you should call your bank or police.

As of right now, no charges have been filed pending further investigation.

Police are trying to figure out if the Clay County residents knew they were involved in a fraudulent scam.
