Then why was she wasting your time?

A few years ago my young male cousin (late 20's) asked me what he should buy his girlfriend (of about 2 years) for Christmas. I said "an engagement ring". He looked at me like I was crazy and said "no, I don't want to marry her". Upon discussion he said he knew she was not the one. I asked why he was with her, and he responded he would stay until he found something better. I don't understand people sometimes. If someone knows for sure a person is not the one, why waste your and their time? That is so sad.

It gets more difficult when someone's entire family likes the other person and applies collective pressure.

Oooohhh yes. It certainly is easier when the family likes you and more difficult when they don't. I would give up if the man's family doesn't like me AND the man ALLOWS his family interfere. ALLOWS being the significant word. If that is the case, run, don't walk, to the nearest exit.

(Quote) John-220051 said: The one thing I don't understand about a few of the women who I have met is that they expect me to automatically know what they want. And when I ask them about their expectations, they say things like "You should just know." I know from speaking with other men that my experiences are not unique.

Why do many women do that instead of speaking their minds to let their man know their wants and their needs?

They are lousy communicators and don't understand much about human interaction. When you encounter this- Please move on and find someone who is ready to really communicate! Good observation. They could also be spoiled...as if someone already doted on their every want and on them, and inadvertently taught them something that is not true... Keep moving when you see this.
