You do not have to turn your life into an animal shelter only to later dread whom you have allowed to have access to your heart. Avoid what you don’t want by learning the 10 Signs Your Dating a Dog in Disguise.
1. He Doesn’t Bark
Just as you are alarmed when a stranger is at your door and your dog fails to notify you so with a little “woof woof”. So should you be when a man is hesitant to divulge who he is beneath the surface. It takes time to lean a person’s character but when a man is too vague and mysterious, about his age, where he lives, and essentially who he is you should be alarmed.
2. He Won’t Go Out and Play
How often do you hear of a dog not wanting to go out and run around? If a man is uncomfortable being out in public with you. If he has regulated your interactions to “house dates” or if he does take you out he makes sure to keep the dates on a certain side of town, he could be hiding something. Pay attention.
3. Dogs Don’t Hibernate!
Simply put when a man is genuinely interested in you he is consistent. He doesn’t disappear and become out of reach on a continual basis. We pursue what we want.
4. He Hides His Bones
Selfishness kills relationships. We all struggle with this at times. However, if you notice this to be a consistent character trait in a man who you are dating, this should be a red flag. If his wants and needs are always first on the agenda you will be in for a world of frustration. Don’t settle for that.
5. Always Sniffing Up Your…
If sex always seems to be at the center of his date plans, run!!! If he becomes less interested in your ideas for dates once he realizes sex is not on the menu, it may be a sign that’s all he’s interested in. Don’t try to rationalize it, let his actions speak for themselves and act accordingly.
6. Full Grown Puppy
If you are looking to build a strong long-lasting relationship, you can only do so with a man who is responsible and dependable. Irresponsibility is often a sign of immaturity. It takes a committed and responsible man to maintain a successful quality relationship. This commitment must be first evident in his everyday life if it is to ever show up in your relationship. The maturation process is seen not heard. Don’t fall in love with the noise.
7. You Have Permission to Play in the Park
Ever tried to take a bone out of a dog’s mouth…. How’d that go? Men as are dogs are possessive and territorial. If you have been dating for some time and he remains all too willing to let you continue to play the field, he most likely either has no plans to or he’s already “settled down”. Just not with you.
8. Jumping Out the Bushes
He rarely plans dates with you beforehand. When you do go out he always calls/texts the day of; hey what are you doing? You want to hang out tonight? If it’s consistently a last-minute thing he probably has a lot on his plate and you just aren’t first on the list. Be careful.
9. The Silent Whistle
Smart Phones are everywhere. On top of calls and texts, there are constant notifications from twitter, Facebook and email just to name a few. Many in this day and age legitimately run businesses off of their phones. I wouldn’t be so alarmed by consistent phone activity [unless of course he’s constantly talking & texting during your dates] as I would be if there was NO phone activity. Turning the ringer off late at night is the oldest trick in the book. Whose cell phone never rings!?
10. Have You Been Inducted into the wolf pack?
No man is an island all to himself. If you have been dating consistently for a period of time and haven’t met any of his family or at the least met some of his close friends you may not be that important to him. Men show off the things or people that they are proud to have and feel are valuable. If you remain hidden he doesn’t look at you as a gem. Are you ok with that?
