If a man you are dating just dishes out crumbs don’t treat them like a gourmet meal. Its not just that’s he’s not into you, he’s doing it to keep you on call when he needs you. You are part of his fan club. Many men have these harems which some manage electronically.
If he does anything at the beginning of the relationship that shows disinterest or disrespect, especially in front of your friends…kick him to the curb, he’s already shown you who he is. .. Ignore the melting eyes and candlelit dinners. You are not the exception, He rules.
