Re: Is it ok to date women with issues- needy, self esteem etc?
As far as I know, I haven't come across a woman that hasn't had some serious issue lol. You just have to choose which ones you are willing to accept when it comes to getting serious. Self esteem issues are not as bad as drug issues imho. (Alot of women have self esteem issues anyways.)
As for, if you should sleep with them, why not? Maybe you're a guy that doesn't like to lead a woman on. That's fine cause I'm like that. Or maybe you just don't want to miss out on sex. That's fine too. I'm the same way. I have a solution for you.
If a woman that you aren't sure about wants to get serious and you do not, but want to continue seeing her simply tell her you have a 6 month minimum requirement before you make a big decision on becoming exclusive. This works in both favors. It gives you ample time to figure out if you want to be exclusive (who knows you may change your mind about her) and it weeds out the ones that would only give you trouble yet you want to see them for a bit longer without giving them a title.
I myself have NEVER lasted the whole 6 months. I either change my mind (or they change it for me) within 3 months and she's my gf or she just isn't for me and only lasts a few months even after I tell her I want to wait to see what happens between us. Win-win.
