I show interest but do not act clingy or super attached.
You see each other once a week or so, hooking up here and there, and generally having an enjoyable time of things.
In the 21st century, the people we date are more likely to be removed from our social circles, so no one has to explain to people why someone doesn’t work out. Had it been an option 50 to 100 years ago, everyone would have done it then too. Do you think you had to pick up chicks in your horse and buggy?It’s a lovely concept, but it’s entirely intangible.
