SKINNY-LOVE: Two people who like each other but are too shy to show it.Tip: It’s normal to be shy but most people are flattered that you like them- Carpe diem.So, if the other person remains just at this small talk level, ask more questions to get to know them and share yourself.If it never progresses it is likely your relationship won’t either. Tip: Clearly a full blown phobia requires therapy but many people have some fears of falling in love.
They made me chuckle (and after specializing in dating for 14 plus years, I thought I’d heard it ALL).
This often involves not wanting to be hurt or to lose control.
If you are looking to fall in love and the other person is not going to do that or to really let you in on an emotional level, this could be a red flag.
TEXTROVERT: Someone who feels more comfortable talking over text than in person.
Tip: Many people text these days when they are first dating but I’m always surprised at how many singles develop an ongoing intimate virtual relationship without even meeting in person.
