My boyfriend is sweet, smart, cute and we have a lot of fun together. I very much appreciate that about him and have told him so. I understand that it comes from a place of being clueless rather than being intentionally mean- I have a lifetime of dealing with a dad and sister the exact same way. I also know, though, from that life experience that my being an emotion centered person can sometimes cause hurt feelings on my end during interactions and my strategy so far in dealing with this type of personality has been either to try to calmly call them on mistakes or let stuff go. I said I agreed. His response was that he figured it was understood what he meant. I see his lack of emotional intelligence also manifesting in a lack of stepping up to responsibility in his house, leaving his roommates to take up the slack, and in how he can be very impulsive and not think of the bigger picture outside of himself. This week he has been very busy and so communication has been sporadic and initiated by me we mainly talk via IM.
Things about Clueless you only notice as an adult
I have a mini-confession to make: I wrote the Tao of Dating books specifically for really smart people. The writing of the books was precipitated by the endemic dating woes on the Harvard campus as I observed them as an advisor and, earlier, indulged in them as a student. Those kids graduate and pretty much continue to have the same dating woes — only now with fewer single people around who happen to live in the same building and share meals with them every day.
So if they had challenges then, it gets about 1, times worse once they’re tossed from the warm womb of their alma mater. From my observations, the following dating challenges seem to be common to most smart people. In fact, the smarter you are, the more clueless you will be, and the more problems you’re going to have in your dating life.
So my boyfriend of 8 months is a sweetheart, unassuming, trustworthy, and all around pretty innocent. So I was wondering, hes had only one.
Dating advice is outside the scope of this site, with this article being a semi-exception. Over the years several women have written me to tell me reading this site has helped them understand the actions of a shy guy they were pursuing. With that in mind I thought I’d try to be even more helpful and write a whole article outlining what it’s like to be a man who’s really shy and inexperienced with women. At the end I give a few thoughts on what to do if there’s a shy guy in your life you’re interested in.
Combined, the points below will describe a guy who’s really, really inhibited and awkward around women. Not all shy men will have issues that intense or have every characteristic apply to them. I’ll list some quick suggestions at the end, but for the most part I’ll describe the issues shy guys deal with and let you draw your own conclusions about how to act.
As with all the other writing on this site, the points here are from a mix of my own experience and accounts I’ve come across of how shy guys say they think. I also wrote a follow up to this article on some of the unique issues shy women struggle with. I’ll break this down further below, but their central problem is that they’re just really anxious , scared, and inhibited around women. Almost all men get a little nervous when they have to ask a woman out, or kiss her, or even talk to her for the first time.
But when a guy is really shy his nervousness is at a level where it usually prevents him from doing any of those things. It’s legitimately strong, not something where they can just take a deep breath and push through it. Sometimes this nervousness shows up as the physical symptoms of anxiety.

We all have that friend: the beautiful, intelligent, driven woman who—like Katherine Heigl in every rom-com—can’t find a decent date.

The couple didn’t have a lot of single male friends left, but the many single women they knew all seemed to be buyers stuck in a seller’s market.

Whether you love kids or can’t stand them, whether you’re already a parent or you’re childfree, dating someone with kids is hard. Disproportionately, mystifyingly, unbelievably hard. There’s a bunch of reasons for this. Trying to fit romance in around a schedule that’s at least twice as chaotic as other people’s. Exponentially increased potential for stress and drama.
That whole “kids come first” thing creating abominable snowmonsters where there once were special little snowflakes. No one having respect for their damn elders anymore. Even if your new partner gets along cheerfully with their ex, even if your future stepkids are an absolute delight, even under the most ideal circumstances possible, there’s a million more balls to juggle when dating someone with kids compared to regular dating.
