How does a man be romantic when he meets a woman online and not creepy? I get self-conscious about coming on too strong or not being strong enough.

What is a happy medium?

Personally, I don't want "romantic", esp. online.

I want facts, cordiality, consideration. With shared values and a shared interest or two (and some luck), those will blossom into friendship.

The romance comes once the friendship is well established and you realize that this relationship is super-important to you.

Romance is the icing on the cake of friendship.

I don't think you have to be friends first. With my late husband, the minute I laid eyes on him I sensed a connection and attraction, and soon found we had a lot of chemistry together. We went on to have a wonderful twenty-year marriage.

John, I suggest that you just tell the woman honestly what you are thinking when you read her profile and express interest. She'll know what to do if the thoughts are mutual. Then, be there for her, commit to communicating daily in time and when it's reciprocated, communicate often during the day. A woman needs to feel secure over time that she is the most special woman in the world to you and that you wouldn't think of hurting her but only want the best for her. Women who have a healthy self-esteem won't settle for anything else because it will not make for a happy relationship or perspective marriage. Don't wait too long before meeting because you have to see if you have that spark of attraction. Hope this helps. Jeannie
