Men are easy.
But then, they'll often do the absolute MINIMUM they have to do to keep you around.
They'll try to keep you at "girlfriend" level as long as they can without making a commitment.
They'll try to hang onto their "freedom" as long as they can without making a commitment.
They'll say they need "time."
They'll say they're not "ready."
If you lean back, step back, and stop over functioning, they'll cave in to themselves, "snap-to" and work hard to get back in your "good graces" until they can "slack off again" and
STILL keep you around for awhile longer.
Men are champs at drawing things out.
