I’ve been dating a man for 3 months. Everything seemed cool but lately he started to pull back and became distant. Instead of communicating every day we were communicating once in several days. It was confusing and caused a lot of stress and worries about where the things were going between us. I didn’t want to end up with a broken heart, since I have already had feelings for him. I opened up and told him that I liked him and wanted serious relationship. He said that he wasn’t ready for it. We decided to stay friends. For me, friends means friends only, no intimacy at all. I’ve done this mistake in a past, agreed to do “friends with benefits” when a guy said that it was not going to work between us. Even trying to control my feelings, I ended up growing very deep feelings and strong attachment toward him. And then it took me a few years to recover and heal my broken heart. By the way, both men were Lebanese, charming, sexy and very Intellegent. It was sad to get this answer from him, that he was not ready, but it is much better to get it now and save yourself from heartbreakage and time wasting. I’ll have to move on now. If he decides that he wants me back, now he knows what I want, my values and my standards. Any way, I’ll start dating other people and get what I want: a serious committed relationship, with him or with someone else who is ready.
So, how does one ensure that testosterone levels remain in balance? Some doctors suggest that monitoring testosterone levels every five years, starting at age 35, is a reasonable strategy to follow. If the testosterone level falls too low or if the individual has the signs and symptoms of low testosterone levels described above, testosterone therapy can be considered. However, once testosterone therapy is initiated, testosterone levels should be closely monitored to make sure that the testosterone level does not become too high, as this may cause stress on the individual, and high testosterone levels may result in some of the negative problems (described previously) seen.
