I told a close male friend of my experience and he said that, with the casual sex option checked, some men see no point in playing the game and just get right to it.
The effusive if not disingenuous compliments about my “hot mouth” and “sexy legs” didn’t really work on me. Who I might be able to attract for a casual hookup is not indicative of the type of man with whom I could have anything more consistent and substantive.
The article continues, “I ended up dating three men during this time for 3-6 months each.
