You're texting back and forth every hour and then...nothing. I turned to one friend, Slash (yes I have a friend named Slash), who admitted to pulling the disappearing act about 6 or 7 times in the past year alone.

"There's only so many times I can tell a woman I'm not available to date her before it gets into tricky territory," Greg said. ' because if so I will start doing that."One friend thought that there is a lot of pressure from women to find out where a relationship is going and that in turn puts undue pressure on a situation, causing men to freak out and run. For some people that means they try to run to the next step of a relationship; for others the very idea of that makes them run from the relationship entirely.

While some people find that their height doesn't impact dating at all, others may feel that it allows for judgment, fetishization, and stereotyping.

However, I also deal with so many ignorant men who make a huge deal about my height, probably to bury their own insecurity or intimidation.

They make endless unwarranted comments, trying to reassure me that I don't seem "too tall" or "too big." They'll say, "You carry it well," or "Just don't wear heels and you're fine." They act shocked when I say I'm six feet, and beg me to stand back-to-back. These comments also imply that there's a cutoff at which a woman's height becomes unattractive and unacceptable — and that luckily, I fall below it.

If you want to avoid the slow fade, just be straight-forward with the people you date and communicate how much you value honesty.

And try to just enjoy the other person and their company.

But then on the other side of the story, the “Christian view of dating” tends to use fear to keep us paralyzed, afraid to do anything at all.

Rather than trying to navigate through the world of dating in a healthy way, it’s easier to overcompensate for one extreme by simply developing another – giving up dating all together.If your partner freaks out every time you show a little cleavage, it’s probably time to use it to find their replacement. And there’s really no reason for it because, duh, your friends are awesome.He’s just threatened that you’re telling your crew too much and that sooner or later they’re going to convince you to ditch the control freak. Whenever he asks you to do something for him like iron his shirts, he always complains you didn’t do it right.I do want to point out that it's not just men that pull the slow fade; it is a move that transcends gender and sexual orientation.Going off the notion that we all want to run, is that the number one thing we want to run from is an uncomfortable situation: "the talk." It's awkward and uncomfortable and if we can run from that with a relatively clean conscience we will. Hard as it is to admit, I was that young, Christian girl who jumped on the bandwagon of kissing dating goodbye – except of course for dating Jesus.
