Men can sometimes have a difficult time avoiding logging into their online dating profile for good even when they have seemingly met someone that they like.
If he has been dating someone for a while and he likes her, he indeed may be tempted to stop logging in.
He tells himself that she is the one for him and he should do it.
After all, she is already most likely asking him about why he is still logging into his online dating profile when they have already been seeing each other for months and had agreed to become exclusive.
He hears her and even tells her that he is sorry and that he will stop logging in.
He actually means it when he says it because it just makes sense to him.
He has met the woman that fits everything that he was searching for online. Hence, it would make no sense not to stop logging into his online dating profile.
He goes about his regular day after this conversation.
He goes to work, runs some errands, makes some phone calls to friends and family, goes to the gym, etc.
He is doing everything in his power to avoid thinking about logging back into the online dating profile.
He made her a promise that he wouldn’t.
He has been dating her for months.
This is the woman that he is hoping will be in his future.
For a while, he is able to succeed at not thinking about logging into his online dating profile.
He is focused on all the other stuff he is doing.
Several hours later, he is actually quite happy that he hasn’t thought about logging into his online dating profile at all.
When he gets home, he goes through his regular routine.
He takes a shower, makes something to eat, pets his dog, takes the trash out, etc.
Everything is going splendidly and according to plan.
He has some dinner and now has some idle time.
He is in that weird stage between having eaten and thinking about what to do afterward.
Should he grab a glass of wine and watch ESPN?
Should he wash the dishes?
Should he grab the book that he has been reading for the last year and try to get some chapters in?
Well, at this particular moment in time, none of these options really seem to appeal to him.
There is a sudden lull in his thought process and then a sudden internal itch.
It is an itch that he absolutely doesn’t want to allow to come to the forefront but try as he may, he simply can’t help it.
Before long, he starts feeling the temptation to log into his online dating profile.
He tries really hard at this point to get other thoughts into his mind but he just can’t.
Soon, he starts making excuses to himself.
He is only going to log into his online dating profile in order to shut it down, he tells himself.
He is only going to log into his online dating profile in order to delete all the messages that he has received from other women while he has been going about his day or simply tell them that he has found someone and they need not bother messaging any longer.
He convinces himself that this is what he will do and he consequently logs into his online dating profile.
An hour later, he is still there.
He is caught up in conversations with women who sent him new messages.
Men like this are often addicted to the attention and find it very hard to stop logging into their online dating profile.
They often wonder about who may have just sent them a message and fear that they may miss out on something better if they weren’t to check their online dating profile.
They will only stop when they have reached such a level of emotional attachment to the woman that they are exclusive with that they don’t want to risk losing her due to these actions.
At this point in time, he hasn’t reached that level of emotional attachment to you.
