Because even though he wanted to, and even if he’s a man-whore, once you agree to knock boots with him, he will see you as a whore. This is the guy whose smart phone is like another appendage. It’s either in his pocket or on the table next to him.
He suffers from serious FOMO (fear of missing out) and cannot go five minutes without looking at it.
In fact, when you’re on a date, his phone makes you feel like a third wheel.
“In my courses I get a lot of enquiries about how to know whether people are single from their online profile, and most of those enquiries come from women.
If men talk about exes, women get the impression he’s being honest and open about his relationship status now.
