Geesg that was wayy to much info to read and no paragraphs to break it up.
Courtship: if the guy is into the girl he will take her out. He has to COURT HER in order to gain her favor - this will go on for several months WITHOUT SEX
Relationship: After an extended courtship THAT IS EXCLUSIVE they can agree on a relationship and not date anyone else.
Marriage: When you bring it all to the level of COMMITTMENT (hopfully) for life.
The problem is women are so will to tolerate any old thing and call it a 'relationship'. They the man skip all the steps ... and hit the sheet by the 3 rd date so that by the time she figures out he's a rat .. she's already kindof emotional bound to him. So then... she feels she's gotta STAY with that loser.
If she had waited .. she would have still figured out what he was .. but she could have easily stop aswering his texts .. and dumped him.
