The people who do best with women are the ones who not only understand them but, critically, don’t view them as opponents, enemies or inferiors.
Much of what we assume to be the accepted wisdom regarding relationships is based around intellectual fallacies and cultural assumptions with no actual fact behind them.
One of the reasons why I write about feminist issues or bad behavior within the geek community is because, frankly, getting better at dating is a holistic system.
I mention all of this because one of the things I’m always pushing against are the toxic philosophies that so often masquerade as dating advice.
Granted, there’s the physical proximity thing, but even that can get a bit muddled as I often find that I’ll sit quite close to my friends or lean into them while looking at something on their phone – and to make matters even more confusing, because I suffer from social anxiety, I actually tend to instinctively increase my physical distance, face away, and avoid eye contact when I am attracted to someone, because I get painfully nervous (and I imagine the same may go for others dealing with the lovely anxiety beast).2) How does one determine whether someone is flirting/interested when communication is mainly online?
I’ve noticed that despite the increasing prevalence of people forming friendships and romantic relationships online (particularly in the nerd/geek community), the topic of ‘reading signals’ from online behaviour is rarely addressed.
