Dating Limbo



Staying in dating limbo rather than rushing to a full-blown relationship too soon has its advantages. Deliberately exploring each interaction with your potential match will breed confidence in whatever decision you finally decide to make.




Dating Limbo



So many people walk on eggshells, afraid to ask where the relationship is going. Are you still dating other people? Are they? Is there apprehension on either side in stepping closer to commitment? Talk about it!


But gauging where you stand is the most empowering part of the process. That gives you the power to decide whether you stay in dating limbo, take things to the next level, or move on in your search for love.


In order to achieve this, you have to communicate, which is something we have all foolishly and disreputably abandoned in our dating culture. The biggest issue behind so many failed relationships is often a lack of strong communication.


Dating Limbo refers to "empty spaces" within a woman's dating life. For example, it is known that woman take long breaks between relationships. however, some of these 'breaks' can reach up to a period of 5-10 years. It is unknown why these extended breaks happen however some theories have been brought up to support the idea.

Opportunity & "Striking Gold" - Many of the modern woman we know today, are infatuated with the idea of "striking it big" financially. they often use social media platforms to lure in "potential investors" to use as product pushers in exchange for easy money. this is also done over dating apps & streaming sites. in addition, many woman self identify as "entrepreneurs" or business-savants even if its not true. their infatuation with money & lifestyle is borderline insane, therefore it is not easy for them to start a family or a serious relationship.


Here I am, yet once again, realising that I have fallen in the trap of an Almost Relationship. You know that Almost Relationship limbo, when you are almost together, almost a couple, almost in love, but not really?This is the third time this happens to me, and I am started to think I am doing something wrong here.We are definitely not Fwb, as I clarified when we started dating 4 months ago. I said I was not interested in that type of setup and that I was looking for a relationship, and he said he felt the same way. Both around 30 and no kids. Both with big careers.We meet once a week, have a lovely afternoon, evening and night together, we chat about things and share a bottle of wine. The sex is great. And yet, I can see this is not progressing into an actual relationship. We are two singles going on dates together once a week. We haven't increased the frequency of our dates, and in between dates we communicate maybe once or twice a day with humorous texts. He is crazy busy, and every weekend he is off to some fun trip with his buddies, but of course I am never included in any of his plans nor he seems to plan to include me anytime soon. He is having an absolute blast living his bachelor lifestyle with parties, trips, freedom and friends.I feel like there is no real intimacy and I don't feel like I am getting to know him increasingly more, nor him me. He doesn't share any relevant information about himself, and when I ask I feel like he is uncomfortable. He says he needs time to open up. When I try to share information about me and my past, he listens but doesn't really ask questions, so I wonder if he is interested at all (spoiler: probably not).I feel like we are two singles who enjoy a few hours together once a week. He is lovely with me, kind and cuddly when we are together. We share a similar sense of humour. I am sure this setup would suit a lot of people, but it is not enough for me and I know I'll have to end this, as I don't see it progressing any further than this.I am just a bit bummed about the fact that I seem to keep getting stuck in this dating limbo over and over again.Am I doing something wrong? Please share your dating limbo/ almost relationships wisdom!


It happens to us all! I think at the moment a lot of guys say they may want a relationship to keep us interested but actually they enjoy the limbo - where they get the girlfriend benefits without actually having to be your boyfriend.I think what you need to do is look for warnings of this earlier. If he's always so 'busy' as they always claim to be, then really does he have time for a relationship? If dates and the time you see each other doesn't increase, that's also a warning. Or if they cancel a lot. If you aren't being integrated into their life, not meeting friends etc. that's another one. It's not your fault you are getting into these, but it's now your decision of what to do. This guy is living the dream, he has his fun bachelor lifestyle and a woman on tap when he feels like seeing you. Are you going to put your foot down and ask for what you want, or are you going to not want to lose him and be willing to lower your standards just to keep this guy around?There are guys out there looking for full on relationships, they're hard to find but they are out there. Don't waste your time in limbo, as it only delays you finding the right guy longer.


Sounds like a FWB relationship.I feel you need to move on from this guy. Maybe cool it with dating and just focus on yourself, career and friends and then you will likely meet someone when you aren't looking.


In reality, those who are bad at branding themselves for an online dating service can absolutely still make for great dates. If anything, you should be more suspect of someone with a perfectly curated online dating persona.


If you're a person with limited time and energy to spend on the whole online dating thing, it's even more likely for conversation to peter out. What could've been a great date that'd save you from spending more time on these awful apps is instead a total waste of your already limited resources.


There are no set rules of engagement, so don't get stuck in that limbo. Just go for it when it feels appropriate. And if you're worried about seeming creepy or overeager, explain how you're bad at keeping up with the app and prefer to make concrete plans.


Usually your potential date will feel relieved that someone's taking charge in the uncertain world of online dating. Just make sure you don't frame the suggestion in a way that makes them feel pressured or rushed.


By now we're familiar with the cold calculation that dating (especially of the online variety) is a numbers game. You have a statistically better chance of finding what you want by going on as many dates as possible.


That's a double-edged sword, though, because going on a bunch of lousy dates will likely only lead to fatigue and an existential crisis. However, it is true that dating is a skill that takes practice.


Just a few short months ago, Perrie and Alex made things Insta official with an adorable post, and it's only been getting better since. And while they've been having a ton of Instagram proof of their adorable trips to Paris and beautiful dinners out, sometimes what matters most is that you're with the person you can be silly with. So, last night on Instagram, Perrie updated her story to show what she and Alex were up to, and it was, well, playing limbo.


Conclusions: Being in limbo represents a contradictory state related to time and process of giving birth, when women need to be listened to by healthcare professionals. An understanding of the importance of different information sources, such as family and friends, is necessary. It is vital that women are seen and acknowledged by midwives at the antenatal clinics. In addition, they should be asked how they experience waiting for the birth in order to create a sense of trust and confidence in the process.
