    hey Matthew, are you seriously in a relationship???

    “Scared of Commitment” — IE. He doesn’t want to be exclusive.
    No MAN is going to admit that he’s “scared” of anything! DUMP his ASS FAST!
    Another one my ex used to pull –> “Labels confuse things”
    thats bullshit too!
    Guys like to come up with these “cute” little bullshit phrases that really mean — I’m just in it for the sex.

    I’d tell him: “Sucks for you then” or “your loss”. “Here’s what I wanna tell you now that you are not ready: You are not ready for me (or anyone else for that matter), cause me aint perfect and 100% safe.
    Your not an infant and I’m not your mom. I can be annoying, smart, direct, vulnerable, in essence: human… I absolutely 100% have flaws. I will hurt you -though not intentionally- frustrate you, disappoint you (insert your own word)…I can promise you that. Not because I’m not a great catch, but because I’m human, I have an ego like everyone else, and I don’t love you unconditionally like mommy does.
    I need someone/you/a partner too. If you can’t handle a human then don’t date me. If you don’t have space for my mistakes (say a too angry response during a stressfull time like PMS or finals) stay single.
    I’ll also never tell you I’ll always be yours – I come with mental challenge and standards, you’ll always have to earn me.
    But I understand that I too must honor a space in your life and vulnerability by treating you with the same affection, time, FUN and respect – and I do have that to offer.
    It’s up to you. Don’t choose me if you can’t live up to what I need in return. I know this all sounds like me me me, my point is that your expectations/needs may be too high. Just ask yourself if your searching for the perfet person, or someone who will feel like a comfortzone to you. You will absolutely have to deal with me, and if you can’t – if you don’t have space- then you really don’t have anything to offer a woman. I’m seaching for a winner: a rock, a shoulder/soldier to cry on, space. I need forgiveness, advice, strength, a provider and protecter. If that ain’t you then never mind, feel free to leave.

    Great advice again, Matt. My ex just decided to stop talking to me, citing stress, and hasn’t contacted me for the best part of 2 weeks now. Clearly it’s over, but I take comfort from your words about assessing a man by the way he reacts to stress. He clearly lacks respect and maturity, and isn’t the man I need or deserve. Thank you x

  7. Cat says:

    Matthew, you are putting-out too much free stuff…. i feel guilty. Trust me, I’m not complaining, I thank you, but how are you doing this?! What is this business model??

    Anyway, before you go charging for these super insightful videos, could you address this one question for me?

    What might I be doing that attracts only married men? I feel as though it has happened one too many times to be a coincidence, and somehow I feel like I’m not aware of some vibe I’m putting-out.

    Best xoxo!
