Love Like A Woman, Date Like A Man

- By Bossip Staff

In life we’re told not to put all of our eggs in one basket. If you’re a single woman who isn’t in a committed relationship, why should dating be any different?

How many times have we gone out on a couple of dates and clicked with our ‘potential’ mate only to focus the majority, if not all, of our dating attention only on him?

The difference between men and women when it comes to dating is that most men consider a date simply that: a date. Most likely if he’s dating you with no explicitly stated commitment, he’s dating other women as well.

As women we are instinctively inclined to invest ourselves emotionally, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It only becomes a problem when the investment isn’t reciprocated and we put all of our dating eggs into one hopeful basket.

  • carebear

    This recently happened to me. I wad dating several guys but already had my eye on one…i let everyone else go and have been tlking to this guy ever since september now i realize he just likes to have me around and nothing serious will come from it so i let it go…sad because i was honestly falling for him but o well…rather deal with the pain now than heart ache later

  • jbaby

    I think if u would like to date multiple men at one time thats cool. Just don’t start opening your legs to all of them that makes u look desperate and its not lady like.

  • 2Sweet

    Whew! Dating is that bullchit but on some real shyt some younger females just need to be realistic w/themselves and accept that they will never seriously be in a relationship b/c they are majorly lagging. Once they make peace w/this their dating life will be much easier.

  • 2Sweet

    And by majorly lagging I mean you are early 20s looking like Sherry Shepherd, can’t cook, can’t dress, are lame as hell but u want a fine, gainfully employed man w/no criminal record and no kids. Step your game up or learn how to appreciate being the burger king cashier’s side piece.
