He dating many women
After all, he has experienced love before, which is why he’s so heartbroken now, and why you encountered him online.However, it is equally possible for him to remain non-committal when he is still hung up on someone else, so proceed with caution.When he needs connection or the fantasy of a relationship, he can effectively “order out” for a date.By avoiding actual human contact he isn’t forced to push his boundaries or risk challenging the perfection of his fantasy women with the experience of a real life woman.This can be a difficult and provocative situation for all parties involved, so proceed with caution.
Internet dating is an outlet for him and he is not planning to leave his partner anytime soon, if ever. Lost in Fantasy How many profiles do you see that list things like as relationship must-haves?
However, it may be possible for him to shift from fantasy to reality now or over time as he realizes he has to make some concessions if he wants to have a real partner. Lies About Age He is typically older, in his 50s, 60s, or even 70s, and is set on meeting and dating women significantly younger than he is, so he shaves years off his life in his profile, even in his "current" online pictures.
He may be very well meaning, and may truly believe that once he meets these young women they will be so drawn to him that the deception won’t matter, and the age difference will be rendered irrelevant.
However, starting a relationship with a lie—now matter how “harmless” it may seem to him—takes away from the woman’s ability to use her own discretion and decision-making power and therefore erodes trust.
When she inevitably finds out, she typically finds the age difference and the lie far more jarring than he had anticipated.
Because Internet dating has been a part of his generational experience, he is more comfortable with it as a normal mode of communication and meeting people, and is generally more open to the process and experience.
