What was once readily available is suddenly gone, and no matter how hard we try to regain our partner's former affection, it now seems beyond our reach. They don't need more time to figure out their emotions. The phases of Hot and Cold: The "hot" phase begins with a bang of overwhelming recognition. Bathed in newfound attention, flattery and flirtation spark a strong attraction for this person.They're not sorting out their last breakup, and they're not swamped at work. The hot/cold scenario typifies much more than a lack of certainty on a lover's part. You quickly find yourself craving more of this delicious new feeling.Early 40’s, attractive, intelligent, funny – and utterly demoralized by this guy that she’d been seeing.They had a passionate first month, and then, after one awkward conversation, he pulled away. He would still send her regular texts saying that he missed her – although he didn’t actually DO anything to make plans with her. Behavioral extremes indicate a power play is being employed. Once we have the ability to see hot and cold for what it is, we're less likely to suffer its negative effects. It's long been the rule that when dating someone whose behavior is marked by hot and cold reactivity, you're standing on shaky ground.Whether initiated by a cold-shoulder, avoidance, or lack of communication... This phase activates loss, making you yearn for them and wait with bated breath for their call or text. These are the basic dance steps to this type of behavior. This formula is predictable and consistent even when your partner's reactions are not.
Contact is reciprocal, time is made to see each other, and forward movement is evident. The hot phase is designed to get you in the gate that leads to the corral, where you'll later be harnessed. Your partner begins to pull away making you long for their previous attention.
If I had to choose between the two, I’d pick the unattractive folks every single time because dating hot people comes with way too much trouble. If any of you have ever had sex with the hot guy or hot girl, you most likely know exactly what I’m talking about. They can sometimes even get famous or internet famous just for being pretty. Being told yes all of the time can make you immature when someone finally does tell you no.
Since they’re hot, most classically attractive people are selfish and bad in bed. Who knows, but it seems a lot of sexy men and women feel they aren’t obligated to put as much effort in. That can make having productive chats about what’s going wrong in a relationship much harder than it has to be. People listen to attractive people and take them much more seriously than their less than lovely peers.
