My girlfriend is dating another guy
The crush was an idea of who the person was I wasn't actually in love with them, the more I got to know my crush the less of a crush I had on them.
For example: A guy like this might stop going out, even with friends, and stay home alone at night or on the weekends in case she calls him.
Alternatively, he might also refuse to date other women, even though his ex is dating other guys.
In his mind, a guy like this is likely thinking, “Do I really want to be with a guy who has nothing else going in his life, and needs me to give him purpose? What did I see in him if others don’t even want to be around him?
Maybe I made a mistake and was with a guy who didn’t deserve me.” Women love to know that the guy they are with is valuable and that he can have any woman he wants, but he is choosing to be with her.
A woman doesn’t want to feel like she’s doing him a favor by being with him because no other woman out there wants him.
