Erica: Is it possible for a man to really like a woman and still not be ready for a relationship with anybody? Caught your “Be His Beyonce” post. But really, a woman doesn’t decide if she’s his Beyonce.
D.Y.: Yes, it is possible. It’s also possible to eat cereal with tomato sauce instead of milk. Just because something is possible doesn’t mean it you should count on it actually happening.
Lemme put it this way: One of the reasons why men who may not be “ready” change course when meeting a “game changing” woman is that he doesn’t want to take the chance of losing her to anyone else. You do what’s necessary to lock her down because you want her and because you don’t want her to move on. If a guy tells a woman that he’s not ready for a relationship, he may still actually like her, but he doesn’t like her enough to keep from potentially losing her.
