  • I am a single mom of 4. I was married/with their father for 10 years and didn’t even realize he was the biggest narcissist! I truly thought I was losing my mind on a daily basis. Once I broke free from his bull shit it took at least 6 months to a year just to feel half normal and not 6 1/2 years later I have just started dating someone only to find my judgement still sucks! It’s been 2 months and he says he loves me but I feel I give all my time and energy and he maybe gives 1/4 and then every 2 weeks he finds away to see his ex girlfriend lies about it and says sorry only to do it again a few weeks later. I know it’s wrong and I should have walked away 1 month 3 weeks ago, but I’m not going to lie. The sex, the kissing the massive energy that happens between us is nothing I have ever felt before! Just the way he looks at me and kisses me sends me over the edge EVERYTIME! Yes he would be the 2nd guy in 7 years, but it really is amazing. I guess my question is after coming out of such a terrible awful relationship should I just accept this and you learn to live with how he is? I’m 42 this year and I’m tired of being alone. It’s crazy to think how I obviously have such low self-esteem but yet when he looks at me he brings it higher than I ever thought possible. What do I do please help!

  • hi thank you for giving me that information because that’s all I do is be on phone waiting I don’t hear from this person it’s always silence on his part I been texting him for two and a half years at first it was beautiful I fell in love with him older than him I think that has a lot to do with it everything begin to change he used to say how much he loves me he was always checking on me I miss the waking me up every morning about 3or4 in the morning just to say good morning how are you doing that don’t happen anymore now it just one sided I’m doing all the good morning good night he doesn’t reply so I try stay I’m being more stressed thanks for listening

  • Matthew ,
    You are such a Sweetheart, and you are so right and spot on about this. I will agree it is so hard to shift our thoughts when we’re anticipating that text or call, but truly, if one were to put back the focus onto themselves and lean back magical things just might happen.


  • You previously addressed the “wait or create” idea, but I think in this video you show and articulate it in a more coherent way. Liked the examples of what one could do instead of just waiting for a text message or phone call.

  • I never obsess over texts, because I have a rich and wonderful life already!! I fly light planes and ride my awesome motorbike every day and have a corporate career. Guys are just intimidated by me! Even though I don’t brag about these things, I’m constantly told “I can’t keep up with you!!”. I tell them “I don’t want you to feel intimidated by me. I’m just a sweet lady with a heart of gold” I’m feminine, I date, I flirt, I have the self confidence to just walk up to a guy I fancy and say “Hi…..How’s your day been? Tell me about it?”…then listen, show interest without being needy and clingy.

    I can charm and compliment guys. I know how to make a guy feel special, with words of encouragement, I really try to connect with them on a deeper level by asking all the questions Matthew Hussey says you should do on a first, second and third date. I set standards, in a loving and welcoming way and I’ve been following him for years……but it just ain’t happening for me. I freaking’ GIVE UP!!!!!

  • First of all say them that you don’t have any more time to waste because already you had invested your valuble time on him if he is not interested ask him to open up..if the guy is concerned about how the girl going to take this situation..if this matters him and this is the reason why he made the girl waiting the girl should give him a comfort zone to open up..and hear what he wants to say..

  • Another way is that it is somewhat cruel i think so..make a distance with him and let him understand its hurting you..and when he ask what made you silent talk to him and both can solve their problem

  • It must not be about what men think. Time is moving and that there is not much time left. The focus like you said, Matthew, should be on significance. This is through constant learning, finding peace with what you have already and building your talent to serve better, to share your built up talent and to feel significant through this. An extraordinary life is not about the scene of fancy holidays, Gucci bags or airbrushed pictures to brand yourself. It is about being a better version of you for those around you or those you can reach out to on global or community platforms.Being relevant is being significant. Whether you have a niche or not. There is no point in showing how much you can take care of a man or how you can help a company benefit from your worth, if you can’t even acknowledge your own worth to yourself first. It starts with maintaining a healthy body and mind. You have to first be disciplined to yourself with your diet and keeping relatively fit. It is mostly through your diet that you will start to feel invigorated, better glowing skin and without even the fuss of make-up. You will feel awesome even if single. Men will find you alive and kicking and when you accept to be in a relationship with them do not lower your standards just to keep a man. Do not stop learning,and being significant.THANK YOU SO MUCH Matthew. All the best ladies.

  • Dear Matthew,
    I totally agree with you! Even reading a book or listening to a podcast can switch my mood in the shortest amount of time.
    The bad mood because of the waiting game is not even my problem. I just don’t know how to decide if i should quit texting at all with a „pen pal“.
    At the moment i‘m texting with a nice guy i met on tinder. We text almost every day but thats it. So my waiting game isn‘t just about the textmessage, it’s about the one message he finally asks me out.
    You once told „he might not be into you right now“. So, how to know if i should hang on or just stop investing my time?

  • Waiting game!!!! Spot on about how it feels. Reinforced my worth and that the guy I’m “involved” with (relationship is giving him too much credit) is just not emotionally available. We’re both in our early 40s, divorced with kids. I’ve been on my own for several years, but just now feeling like I’m in a place to pit myself out there and he is 18 months post divorce. Maybe the right person, but definitely the wrong timing for him which makes it bad timing for “us”. When the yuck & muck outweigh the joy its time to cut your losses and move on. Ah…what could have been. P.S. Now if I can get him to answer my text so I can tell him this
