I even had one reader who had gave the man a hard time the day after their first date when his profile was still up.I wish these readers had written me beforehand because this is often the worst approach to take (at least from this guy’s point-of-view). I do have some advice but let’s first look at one reader’s email and user this as an example for better understanding where you stand with your guy: I have been dating a man I met on for about 6 weeks – we go out regularly and he is always quick to make plans with me.In some cases, this could cause what he saw as a healthy, budding relationship to end abruptly.
If you have agreed to be exclusive, things are easy: you just need to ask him to take it down!
If you haven’t agreed to be exclusive, I feel this is the point that the relationship would need to reach before you would be in a position of strength to ask that the profile be removed.
For the last few months this has been by far the question I’ve received most often from readers.
I had touched on a similar topic last year in my post my boyfriend has kept his online dating profile active.
While I still believe what I wrote there, I’m finding that many of the women who are contacting me are not at the point where they are sure if the man is their “boyfriend” or not.
With that in mind I wanted to review one of the recent emails I’ve received from a reader and offer some additional advice for this problem.
First off let me say that many men keep their profiles active even though they are interested in the woman they are regularly dating.
Men are slower to commit and many also need their ego “stroked”.
Perhaps not nice or courteous but not unfair either.
