POLL: Does She Like Me?

Friday, July 29, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... I'm in my mid 20's and haven't had a relationship where I had such a strong connection with a woman. She says how special I am to her and how much she likes me. However, many times she is too busy to go out or she'll cancel (I don't know how many of her excuses are legitimate). We talk throughout the day at work on instant messenger (work IM) and we have gone out about 5 times after we met about 6 weeks ago. We also meet for lunch once or twice a week. I'm wondering if she really likes me, because it seems like so many other things take priority. She said we are exclusive but doesn't want to label us boyfriend/girlfriend yet. Am I being too hasty? She has also been hurt pretty bad by a past relationship and I'm wondering if she's afraid to start committing to another serious relationship. Is she taking advantage of me, or does she like me but is afraid to commit? What do you think?
POLL: It sounds like this woman...
30% (397) ...has a fear of commitment
14% (192) ...likes you
37% (499) pretty typical
17% (231) trying to tell you something.

POLL: Going viral

Friday, July 15, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: At what point in a relationship do you tell a woman that you have herpes? I need to know because the last time, I didn’t do it until we were actually in bed and naked and making out. She was very upset, but I was scared to bring it up sooner, because I didn’t want to scare her off.
POLL: When's the best time to tell someone you have herpes?
9% (185) First date
83% (1586) When things start to look serious
4% (89) Just before the first time you have sex
2% (44) Somewhere between "Was it good for you" and "I have an early meeting tomorrow."
0% (6) Never
