Feast or Famine: The Dating Effect

Postby toolverine » Mon Jun 09, 2008 12:51 pm

So, I've always experienced feast or famine when it comes to women. My dry spells are obscenely long and then I have these periods where more than one woman are actively pursuing me in one way or another. I just got out of a bizarre love quadrangle situation where I had a huge fight with the girl I was most interested and closest to, dropped the Romanian girl I'd been pursuing for the longest time in recent history, and dated a girl I hardly knew, only to do something I thought I'd never cop to-- cheating. Now, people have varying morals when it comes to relationships where marriage is not involved, but I felt terrible about the whole thing.

Now, I'm in a similar situation. The Romanian girl and I are seeing each other as mutual exclusives as of last night. The girl I cheated with... tried to jump me before the mutual exclusivity conversation took place. I didn't go for it. Also, an ex girlfriend has been telling me stuff like she'd rather make out with me than study for the bar.

Anyway, anyone else experience the feast or famine effect.? (In b4 Carrie calls me a man whore)

I think it's pretty common and sort of wish-fulfillment. When you don't have anyone, you want someone... then you get more than you can handle, and it goes back to the famine. It's like that for most of the people I know who are dating.

If you're really interested in the Romanian girl, moral arguments aside, just stick with her and see where it goes.

I have no frickin' clue wtf you're talking about. With me, it's famine or really famine. I think that's why I was made so fertile; it's like my body knows I probably won't get another chance for a long, long (LONG) time.

yes and it does suck a lot. Just around the time I started talking to ashley I had a lot of confidence and low standards and just as I was almost about to man whore it up ashley pretty much occupied my thoughts and life so in the end I would say I made the right choice but really it all comes down what you're comfortable doing.

Sometimes I feel this way too. But I try to have a lot of confidence.

Yeah, I've found that I somehow become more attractive to women when I'm already seeing someone. Could be a reflection of that whole connfidence thing.

It's always feast or famine with me. The famines are a lot longer than the feasts though. I'm in the midst of a long famine currently.

Back before I got hitched, I was dating someone and I went out early to a local convenience store, struck up a convo with a girl who was swooning over me in 2 minutes flat. Long story short, I told her I was taken. I think there's a hormone or something secreted when people are already having sex or happy or something . Look it up!

She'd kill me if I called her a gypsy and meant it.
