In addition, when this happens several times in a row, the rejection can eat away at your self-esteem. Your confidence may falter as you start to wonder what is wrong with you and why this keeps happening. As a dating coach for 12 years, I want to point out that there is nothing wrong with you. It's simply part of the dating game and is bound to occur.
Yet, if you know you bond quickly and mistakenly think sex has meaning, you might want to change your tactics and wait for a relationship that shows some longevity. This can only be determined with time and consistent dates prior to sleeping together. I suggest making self-preservation your priority, rather than connecting through sex too quickly.
Waiting doesn't create some magical hold over the guy
The point isn't to make the man wait because that offers some kind of magical connection. Taking more time gives you the opportunity to see if he wants to get to know you, in spite of the fact that he has to wait. He'll demonstrate genuine interest, rather than sweet talking you into bed for the conquest or variety.
Maintaining your self-esteem and confidence is a huge piece of the dating puzzle and the key to finding a healthy, loving and lasting relationship. Waiting is a smart practice if you are seeking a long-term partnership with the right man for you. Love and respect yourself enough to prevent premature attachment and avoid unnecessary heartbreak. All love starts with self love, so take care of how you treat yourself.
