Real Men Wait for Sex | Excerpt from Real Men Don’t Text
Today’s excerpt is from one of Michael’s chapters, Real Men Wait for Sex, in Real Men Don’t Text:
I wish I could talk to the guy in your life and figure out his intentions, but an even clearer way to discern if he really likes you is to—take a deep breath—take sex off the table. Make it clear to the guy that you are not sleeping with him, and see if he still calls, takes you on dates, and seems interested in getting to know you. Many women jump into bed with guys, hoping it will fuel the relationship—or start it—when the only thing that sex does is muddle his intentions. Is he calling you because he wants to get to know you, or does he just want to sleep with you? You’ll never know unless you stop giving him physical benefits. If he whines and complains, threatens to break up with you, or never calls or texts again, at least you figured out quickly where his heart is—or isn’t. As men, we will always work for what we want. Translation? If he likes you, he won’t let a lack of physical benefits deter him from dating you. That’s the type of man you want to be with anyway, right?
I love what Brett McKay says on his blog The Art of Manliness:
Married men are having better and more frequent sex than their single buddies who go to clubs each weekend trolling for a woman who is willing to take them home. . . . Married sex is even better than cohabitation sex: 50 percent of married men find their sex life physically and emotionally fulfilling, compared to only 38 percent of cohabiting couples.
Marriage equals more frequent, better sex. Simple.
