Dear Wendy is a relationship advice blog. You can read about me hereperuse the archives How often to see each other while dating and read popular posts here. You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram. Like, when would I ever have time to see anyone that often? But, I was single then, of course, and not a parent, and I was in my 20s and had energy to go-go-go. Or, maybe they had more responsibilities than I did and less energy and free time.
Or maybe they required more alone time. Interest levels and availability can change — sometimes quite quickly — and what if you ruled out someone right away because he only wanted to go out once a week and he might have, after a couple months, become someone who wanted to go out three times a week? And if so, for how long? No Pants April 10,3: I always thought so. I did have one dater guy yell at me like, YELL because I had an insane work schedule and always made time for my friends and family, and then him.
He left me a crazy voicemail about how I was never around. Of course, he was clearly just nuts and hopefully not the norm. Yea I feel like anyone not understanding of your schedule is someone not good for you anyway, so maybe its a good way to weed those people out. No Pants April 10,4: The story does make me laugh now. The reason he yelled at me that particular night was because I was going out with my mom for her birthday and not spending time with him, which made me a terrible person.
AKchic April 10,3: When I dated, I usually dated multiple people and would see each of them x a week at most due to varying schedules, if we went out on more than one date.
Right now, I only get a x a year date with the SO. Money is the biggest factor in our lack of dating. Cassie April 10,9: Some of my favorite dates have been low-cost or free. A guy took me on a date to feed some ducks once aww. But then again I classify pretty much anything that gets me out of sweatpants and the house, has me put a bit of effort into my appearance, and lets me hold hands with my husband as a date.
SasLinna April 10,3: I am dating someone now who i see once a week, and ive been seeing him a little over a month. I would like to see him more, but we both have busy schedules, so realistically this works for now. Eventually if this progresses i How often to see each other while dating like to see him twice a week if possible, but i know that would just have to come with time.
In other situations i have rushed into seeing each other more often times a week and sometimes that would be a bit much right away. I like having a lot of alone time.
Maybe once every other week or so? I was all over the place. Just to add one more thing… The thought of seeing someone every single day for like the next 50 years really, really did not sit well with "How often to see each other while dating" before I got married. It was one of the major things I had to come to terms with before getting married. Like is that something I can really do and really want to do? And not just see them, but live with them for that long.
I had to come to terms with the same thing! It took me 2 years to move in with He Pants and I definitey had major adjustments when we first got engaged. Luckily, He Pants totally respects and always has need for me time. Yeah, Dave is really cool with it, and he needs his space, too. So it works out well for us. It works for us, which is good. Plus, sometimes I like going away for a weekend, or vice versa, because it gives me a chance to miss him.
LlamaPajamas April 10,3: I feel the same way! I love alone and had a bit of a rough time adjusting to being in a relationship with Llama Guy.
I picture Wendy on TV with a too big coffee mug and bright and cheery. LlamaPajamas April 10,4: I love that He Pants calls it Hello Wendy.
I think we are going to get a firepit and adirondack chairs this summer. We can have a weenie roast at our house! Bethany can bring Rudy and LP, you can bring a llama. Dave told me to say hi to Wendy tonight.
