Does online dating make you desperate
Knowing the end was coming, even as the beginning merely bloomed.Years have passed bringing an introspection you can only gain through multiple sunsets; I know how to identify the traits of the desperate relationship (and now you will, too).
You responded out of the various fears that were too much to bear in your life.
When you are honest with yourself, you will note the fear like a tide lapping at you.
You may see it after many months, and when you do, be gentle to yourself in your recriminations.
Now I’ve written before about how neediness is a state of mind and not necessarily your actions. But I would be naive to think that some behaviors didn’t still look “desperate”, even if they’re coming from a healthy place. If I like someone, I’m going to talk to them and not overthink it.
But I also understand that smothering a girl too soon can be a huge turnoff.
That’s just not how human relationships work—not on the Internet and not off.
