Men don't do a lot of things well but one thing they are very good at is living in the moment. A guy can meet you at a bar, flirt with you and even ask for your number, but never text you or progress his interaction with you because for him, flirting with you was just for fun; momentary, situational fun. A lot of men flirt with women to boost their egos, prove that they “still have it” or to impress their friends….all while having a girlfriend or wife at home. His flirting with you is meant to be a bit of fun for him and he has no intentions of having anything serious with you.
More women need to learn to live in the moment and take your interactions with men less seriously. If you flirt with a guy, have fun with it but don't be caught up by it. Too many women leave interactions with men feeling giddy and excited because of feeling that that there was a connection with a guy who literally used you for entertainment and went on his merry way. This is what leads to a woman meeting the same guy again, introducing herself to him and him having no clue who she is because, again, she was just a bit of fun to him and was nothing serious.
This is like the post I made on the girl who made a TikTok video about meeting a guy at a bar (click here to read the post). The little flirtation she had with the guy meant a lot to her; so much so that she held on to the fantasy of their "connection" for weeks. She connected with him on Instagram.....only for him to not have a clue who she was or remember the “connection” they shared. He only remembered who she was when she showed him her viral TikTok video of her talking about them meeting at a bar. Imagine being so excited about a guy and spending your time daydreaming about him, only for you to get the chance to meet him again and have him not remember you and not be as excited to be meeting you again. Embarrassing, right? Now, while people can forget others and even forget conversations, I believe it’s soul-crushing to be excited about a person who can’t even remember your name, who you are or the conversation they had with you.
I implore that women learn to just enjoy interactions with men but not take them seriously. Live in the moment and know that most times, your connection will not become anything serious. Being honest with yourself about this will allow you to remain detached, unemotional and not upset when nothing comes from your interaction with a guy because with how most men are, 99% of the time, your connection will not grow into anything serious. Only be serious about a man that shows consistent interest in you over time.
