They are not going to put themselves on the line for rejection until it’s 100% clear that you like them.They would sooner wait to get a written notice in the mail that you’re really, truly interested in them than to follow up too much and potentially make you uncomfortable. So you’re not wrong to curb a little bit of that domineering side.

One way to do this is to ask your partner to be in charge of something – an upcoming vacation, a dinner for friends. This is an experiment in and experience in proactivity, not about ideal vacations or dinner parties. It is not about the content, it is about helping your partner feel safe in expressing these types of feelings. If you have been carrying the weight of decisions, if you have been feeling frustrated, get it on the table. He doesn't want to take care of things at home but refuses to move to smaller place. I have talked and talked with him but it just seems I am singing the same to on over and over. They are helpful, particularly the part that warns the partner doing all the heavy lifting not to be a martyr. On the other hand, not being a martyr means that if the passivity remains notwithstanding attempts to eliminate it that the partnership has to end. You, apparently, have done both of those things, Michelle.But while you’ve adjusted your take-charge attitude, you haven’t adjusted for the fact that you’re NOT dating a take-charge guy.Dear Michelle, Thanks for reading “Why He Disappeared — The Smart, Strong, Successful Woman’s Guide to Understanding Men and Keeping the Right One Hooked Forever”.Glad it turned on a few light bulbs in helping you realize how a few of your behaviors have been ineffective in forging a relationship with a man. Passivity is obviously at the “flight” end of the “fight or flight” stress-coping spectrum, and when stress goes up generally so too does the passivity.

They can be charming, interesting people, but the frustration comes when you feel like you are constantly doing the heavy lifting when it comes to decision-making.

Take charge guys are the ones who will always follow up quickly, make plans, make the first move, and claim you as their girlfriends.

Beta guys are the ones who have more kindness than confidence. They’re so passive as to be, well, almost feminine in nature.

I’ve had to learn the hard way, that my “go-getter” attitude does not translate well in the dating world.

Not doing anything in the beginning stages of dating tends to drive me crazy.
