As a man who is an excellent communicator and emotionally connected, I was one of the most dangerous of daters.Because some women felt an instant chemistry and even a spiritual connection with me, as if they had known me all their life…“he’s different so he must be safe.” Well the good news is that I was and am safe and so are most guys.It was kinda easy to WOO and WOW women on the phone and they not only thought me safe, they felt an almost unique connection with me.Now I mostly would talk to moms, because as a dad, I thought them safe. Just because they read a profile and a few correspondences or shared one cocktail at a bar, they felt they knew me and felt comfortable.
