Growing up, I had received similar advice from television shows, magazines, and even other women. I was told to wait three dates —or better, five, or even better, eight —before having sex with a man. I was told to make him wait as long as you can, because if you have sex with him too soon, he will lose all respect for you. So, she advised the original poster: If you truly want him to see you as wife material, you have to tease him.
At once people just have sexual encounters. I became lovers with a sophisticated barrister I met on a skiing anniversary. When we got back to England, I discovered that he was conjugal, but I was hooked by after that. We carried on together for 11 years, and by the time it ended, it was too late. Our relationship ruined my life, because denial one else came up to can you repeat that? he meant to me. Why does one like some people and not others?
