Either way, these scenarios may take a long time to play out. Already Taken He wants to know what else is out there, but won’t necessarily act on it. Either way, he is not planning to leave his current relationship, but feels like he is missing out on something.
Or perhaps something pivotal is missing in his relationship, and he wants to be reminded or reassured there is life beyond his current confines.
The longer he continues the lie, the worse the discovery is.
Relationships that start by duping a partner don't end well. Sooo Busy This is the former Ivy League rower, now a neurosurgeon who has chosen the Internet to meet women who are likely on their own tight timelines.
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.
Most assumptions about how you and he will conduct your relationship are not as straight-forward and as they may initially seem. Trying to Get Over The Ex He is looking to avoid being alone after a heart-wrenching breakup.
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.
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.
