Hello! I just made a similar post
about the same thing.
Except, the guy I was talking to was a bit more brazen, asking me if I like his body (why would a 45 y/o man need my validation anyway?) and yadda yadda before doing the disappearing act.
Men like a challenge. Some guys treat you better when you treat them like a doormat. My guy bitched about my behavior of 4 months, but he dealt with it every week.
When I told him I'm attracted to him, and that I like him and he was the only guy I was seeing relationship wise, he stopped seeing me. I should have just slapped him about rather than cater to his whining.
Men are pigs. They liked being kicked, punched, fucked and slapped around.
