I've been told by women before that it makes a person seem more attractive if they are talking to multiple people or if you distance yourself to force them to want you. I'm sorry but I won't do that. If I'm interested in you, you get my full attention until I figure out where things are going, and I expect the same respect. Also don't let me take you out on a date and then tell me that you're "not looking to date anyone right now", don't waste my time. If you're just looking for a new friend, be up front about it, if I find out afterwards that you never had any intention and I've been taking you out for nothing, there's a good chance the deceit will NOT land you a friendship.
Bad things I've been told about myself: I'm overly attentive and affectionate, untrusting at first, a bit intense at times, emotional, and quick to fall for someone.
Good things I've been told about myself: very loyal, protective, caring, thoughtful, and I've actually been called poetic before. Got accused of quoting chick flicks when talking to someone once, even though I wasn't.
