Next, they led the actual participants to believe that they would have a conversation with a fellow participant (in reality, the other person wasn’t a real participant, but an attractive research assistant who had been videotaped earlier for the experiment), who would choose whether or not to ask the actual participants out on a date after asking them some questions via video.
What is it, exactly, that you find so attractive about him or her?
If you’re like a lot of people, you probably envisioned someone caring, warm, reliable, confident, and open—All personality characteristics that make for a secure partner.
Some people are able to get past insecurities rather quickly and others hang onto it forever.
Since every man is different, it’s really up to you to decide whether one insecure man in particular is worth dating or not.
I’ve dated quite a few different men who were really insecure.
Not only was it extremely frustrating for me throughout the entirety of our relationship, but I really think some of those guys were wonderful people until they let their insecurities control their life. But insecurities can cause a larger number of bigger issues within one’s self; anxiety, jealousy, depression, and more.
The first time the jealous accusations occurred I shook them off, partly flattered that he didn’t mind showing he cared. But the second time when he stalked my Facebook wall picking out posts from guys who had written me before he and I even began dating, I knew I wasn’t in a healthy situation. If I made a nice comment about another man, he said I didn’t compliment him enough.
If I talked about guy coworkers in an innocent manner, he questioned my relationship with them.
Honestly I didn’t think any relationship, past or future, could get any worse than that until a few months ago when I dated an insecure man. He was intelligent, ambitious, and had a promising career that paid him extremely well.
He had great conversation, opened doors, was considerate, and liked to talk about feelings.
Second, all of the whiskey in your favorite tavern won’t fix the issues being dealt with in your partner’s mind.
