Ladies, time to look out for these reasons. Could these be the reasons why you haven't reached the next level yet?
Finances: He can’t afford it babe! It’s important to date men who can afford to take you out on dates. This is why the courting/dating stage is so important because if he can’t afford you, it will show! Difficult to see when you go on two dates and then start meeting him at his house for dinner and Netflix N Chill. Trust me, if you two end up in a relationship; you will have plenty of chances to sit at home and watch movies over dinner. In fact, you’ll do it more often than you think on a regular week. Don’t sell yourself short.
Your looks or his looks: Believe it or not, men pay close attention to when people are staring at them just like women do. If your looks are not up to par or he doesn’t have the look he desires, this can prevent him from going out. Men can be insecure. Men can be self-conscious about their body. Men can be body-shamed! Also, if it’s you who goes out not dressed properly for the occasion or he’s asked you more than once not to dress a certain way at particular events; this could be the reason he doesn’t take you out anymore!
Intelligence: When a man feels socially inadequate, it may prevent him from going out. This may be the guy who is okay with taking you out for a private dinner but will avoid networking events and other social settings where he is required to talk. He may not feel like he has anything valuable to add to the conversation or struggle to communicate his thoughts. He may also ask you to order his food for him and avoid speaking to the waiter at the restaurant.
Relationship status: He isn’t single sis! He never takes you out because he can’t. His wife/girlfriend could find out about you and it would ruin everything. This is a red flag that you can catch in the very beginning. If you have been texting/talking on the phone for two weeks and he hasn’t initiated a date with you, cut ties. If he insinuates that you “meet up” but refuses to do so in a public space where he can spend time with you and money on you simultaneously, cut ties. This is 2021, we’re not wasting time on men who pretend not to know what they want to protect their other situations.
