Is He Confusing You? How To Get A Real Answer To All Your Questions About Men

Peter White

It's hard to believe I've been answering personal questions about guys for well over six years now. Thousands of women have come here looking for an answer and courageously left their heart in hopes of getting an open, honest, and REAL answer to their "man" problem(s).

What started out as a simple "nice" gesture for women who kept visiting DiaLteg TM and asking ME  for advice - eventually turned into this lovely site; which has now evolved into something I believe is really special plus free from the clutter and cookie-cutter responses my nemesis magazines sites offer you.

(DiaLteG TM is my site where I teach men natural attraction.)

Throughout the years I've formulated some very interesting material on men based on my own (male) experiences, going deep into all the why's behind men and what makes them tick,  along the countless hours of research and strange ability of mine to be objective and see things others may easily miss - especially when they're in the middle of it all.

This is of course led to me a firm belief of what I've now quoted as a simple understanding of men BUT along with that came the many problems associated with any new theory or belief or "unique" perspective.

For example:

I THINK and somewhat believe I figured out how men fall in love - or what has to happen for him to feel emotional love BUT another problem arises:

There's no clear definition of LOVE that is consistent among men and love has many different forms.

(Such as how even though there's only one word to describe it in English - it's obvious a man's love for his Mother is different than the love he feels for his children which is different from what he experiences with a woman he is sexually and emotionally intimate with over a period of time.)

But enough of all that...

This page was created in the beginning as a place where a woman can get an honest, upfront, objective answer about any specific guy in their life OR where you can leave question about men in general to help you understand, connect, and possibly attract a better man into your life.

Little did I know (not counting the thousand comments on posts) I'd be looking and trying to get through a single page with over 700 comments.

Quite the daunting task as you imagine.

What I've now decided to do is find a way to break down all the questions and answers into separate pages and delete them from here so it's continually fresh and easier to get through. (Wish me luck!)

That way you can search for something similar to what you'r going through without having to expose your personal information or heart publicly AND if a question is interesting to you - you can give it a read and perhaps use the advice in your own personal life with men.

Yes - this page will now or very soon be once again OPEN to anyone who wants to leave a question BUT...

I can NOT do what I have done in the past. I have a businesses to run and a family to enjoy my time with and I don't want to promise you more than I can give.

I can give you personal consultations with very detailed answers based on a very strict selection process where a fee will have to be paid up in advance. (More info on that is coming.) 

I will be choosing random questions to answer here and sometimes I'll feature them in a post.

Here's your opportunity to leave what's on your mind about a guy or men in general.

UPDATE: Due to the NOW NEW PAID MEMBERSHIP at Why Do Guys and The Silent Man Series - I WILL be offering limited PAID advice or personal questions answered as part of the membership - I still do my best to answer your questions here on and the blog but I'm sorry to say they will have to come first.

You can sign up for that feature here but please read the rules because they are very important.

Thank you for everything and if you don't want to buy the membership, you can still pick up my book (kindle version) on Amazon.

    Hi Pete,
    Glad your back, I was so happy to see your email notification in my feeds.
    Please can I ask your advice. I meet this guy a year ago. And I felt like we had a connection, but after few days he said he doesn’t want anything too serious but we can talk and enjoy each other company. I told him I was looking for a little bit more comment. But after that he blocked me, and illiterate stop talking to me. After a while he unblocked me and came up with some some story as why he blocked me. Fast forward i texted him out the blue and at first he was very respective and wanted to talk, than he asked me for a picture. He said it doesn’t have to be X-rated. He sent me a video and following that he just blocked me out the blue blocked me. I have no idea what I said or did.

    • Peter White

      Hi Malione,

      What I see is a man who is playing you in an attempt to get something physical from you and nothing else. Hence the game playing and mixed signals.

      He was honest about what he was looking for – nothing too serious so I would trust that is exactly what his intentions are with you.

      It’s nothing you did – it’s just the way it is. Personally I would stay away from any man who blocks you, unblocks you, and then blocks you again. It’s not really a good start to an open line of communication. PLUS him asking for a picture of you is also not a good sign of great things to come.

      Hope that clears up everything for you,

    Hi Pete,
    This is just a random question. Well, I’m concerned. So a close friend of mine has been dating her boyfriend for 6 years without having sex with him. Yep! She said she told him @ the beginning of their relationship that she wants to get married first. But, what I want to know is , is it possible for the guy to remain faithful to her for that long and not cheat because he loves her even if he is attracted to her? Thanks

    • Peter White

      Hi Emma,

      Awesome question!

      I would say it IS possible but highly unlikely. I wouldn’t put it past a guy to go that long with someone they truly love without some form of sex AND I’m sure it drives him a little crazy now and then, BUT people and the strength they have amaze me everyday.

      So I won’t go judging this guy. It IS possible.

      I can only tell you I have met very few men who could endure that long and I am certainly one of them. Then again I wouldn’t get involved with a woman, at least commit to her if she told me that early on. It would be a deal breaker.

      If you’re questioning him, look at his character, his morals, and definitely look into what they’re actually doing together. If they’re sexual and helping each other out AND he has high ended character values, then it’s very probable he’s remaining faithful until they get married.

      Thank you so much for sharing, love it!

        Hi Pete,
        Thanks, that helps a bit. Fingers crossed that’s the case. 🙂

    Hi there – wondering your opinion on why some men can’t handle it when their girl gets more attention from anyone (not other men, just friends, family, etc.)? I had a 5+ year relationship with the most wonderful guy who I am still head over heels in love with… but when we would go to parties or to meet friends when we dated, and even now occasionally as friends he says I represent him well … but when the group start to flock to me vs. him he SAYS I make him proud and how everyone including him loves me but he gets sullen and eventually will get upset with me for something trivial and seemingly unconnected. I always try to include him, present ourselves as a team, and put the focus back to him when I notice it… and then we can all share the convo or whatever is going on. I am assertive, and well spoken – we are both fairly well read and sucessful… but I don’t consider myself to be ‘stealing’ the limelight or purposely trying to hog attention… trying to get wiser.

    Before we split up he kept accusing me of humiliating him in front of his friends, trying to ‘steal his friends’ etc. Is that emasculating him? Embarrasing him? I try to be very conscious of this but I’ve been trying to understand why he feels this way. He is very emotionally mature in almost all aspects. I want to maintain our friendship and not make the same mistake again… It was a long term, bi coastal romance which doesn’t help. He’s tall, good looking and used to lots of attention. I am petite and probably over compensate for that 🙂 How can I not emasculate him without acquising myself and being submissive? Would really value your opinion. So glad I found your site! Thanks~ k

    • Peter White

      Hi there K,

      Sounds like he has something deeper going on here.

      You said he’s tall, good looking and is used to lots of attention so just maybe he hasn’t developed other parts of his personality which he feels deserves the attention.

      Good looking people who are used to the attention will often grow to despise it because they don’t feel people are willing to get to know them before they judge. They assume they have to work harder to prove themselves because others assume, just because they’re good looking they get handed things to them.

      So… he’s used to getting all the attention and probably doesn’t like it when he’s not the center of it all. Instead of taking responsibility he takes it as a personal judgement against him or how someone is stealing his fame.

      He gets angry to get the attention directed back towards him.

      Quite honestly it sounds like a part of him hasn’t matured. Like there’s a part of his self-esteem which is slightly broken or built up through false confidence. But I’m not one to decide or determine that fully from my view.

      All I can say is that he’s definitely directing the attention back his way by starting a fight with you. Why he acts this way has and was determined in his life from child to adult.

      You can use proper communication skills on him, something I can’t teach you especially in a comment area but guys like this you either: Learn to deal with it. Understand it’s who he is. Acknowledge his attempt at attention and how it makes him feel. Meet him half way. BUT I wouldn’t start treating him like you have done something wrong. It HIS problem that he hasn’t learned how to deal with it.

      I’m sure if you get to the root of his problem or why he acts this way, based on what I’ve told you, you just might get him to see how it makes YOU feel and hopefully from there you can compromise a solution which works for both of you.

      Again, just my opinion and you asked 🙂

      I’m also glad you found my site, now go tell your friends because this site needs attention too 😀

      All the best,


  • Greenky

    Hi Peter, thanks for your sharing these valuable pieces of information about guys and your personal experience, I’m sure a lot of confused women appreciate you for this, it really helps to gain more control over our emotions in the most intense moments with guys..
    I have a general question. After reading to articles one after another I feel completely puzzled and confused. First article is “how guys experience love – your respect and admiration is the key”, and another one – of Cristian Carter, I don’t remember the title, but the general idea is that telling a guy about your feelings is a turn off.. How this two approaches can be integrated together at the same time ? Admiration without telling about feelings? I feel really stupid.. Having actually big time troubles with men, since I’m not beatiful and the right behavior is my key to success. And what would you advice, if I appeared to loose that moment of natural spark, trying not to be so easy and supposed to make him work a little bit more, which caused him to grow cold. I did it bc the last guy dumped me when I was most vulnerable and full of admiration. Is the right strategy really that important or ” you can’t do wrong with the right person” is more likely the truth here? I’m really tired of being someone I’m not. Im direct and assertive, I like to tell guys what they should do to please me, I tried not to, just passively waiting for their moves, and it doesn’t work! They just don’t chase me..

    • Peter White

      Hi Greenky,

      I believe the two articles you mentioned were: How Men Feel Love, Your Admiration and Respect Is Key To His Happiness by James Bauer and Christian’s A Secret About Men Women Do Not Know – The Paradox Of Attraction. (Both are at “The Approach”)

      I can understand how this information can be confusing.

      Okay first, there’s nothing wrong with telling a guy how you feel BUT he’ll respond better when you show it. What Christian was staying was one, if you tell a guy how you feel and he’s not feeling it too, it won’t work.

      You see, men and women tend to become more insecure when they’re falling in love or attraction IF they’re not sure the other person feels the same. If THOSE feelings of insecurity cause you to let it all out hoping you won’t lose the man, THAT is (generally) when things can go terribly wrong.

      In other words do NOT act out of insecurity or believe you can change how a guy feels just because you’re letting him know how you feel. It doesn’t work that way.

      Secondly, passively waiting is not the best thing to do. You must be active, not waiting, and never sit around hoping he’ll make a move. You want to lure him in physically or sexually.

      Third there’s nothing wrong with being direct and assertive. I would actually use that to your advantage in dating.

      This means you’ll go after the dates, live fully and do things where you going to meet more men. Just be doing that shows your assertiveness and your directness comes through when a guy realizes you’re not into playing games. These are YOUR traits, use them for yourself, and allow guys to experience the real you. You just can’t take the lead in dating or the attraction part. There is where the man feels the need to lead. OR at least where he should 🙂

      Now I wouldn’t go telling a guy on the first few dates what he should do to please you but in bed, later, you can definitely feel good about doing that IF you think he needs the encourage or road map. 😉

      Honestly Greenky, Besides what I wrote I just think you have to find a balance which works for you. You can’t be hard to get all the time. You can’t make him work for you all the time. It’s a delicate balance but once you learn it, works amazingly well. Just play with it a little until you find one which works for YOU specifically. Trust me I had to learn the balance too and it took a little bit of work but was worth every failure along the way.

      It sounds like you’re actually trying too hard because you think you’re not beautiful. Keep in mind within every woman lives a sexual edge to her. Of course not all men will respond to every type of woman but what you might not see as sexy or beautiful, I’m positive there is many men who would argue with you. When sexiness becomes a combination of your looks and attitude you’re onto to something.

      Hope all this helps you out and sorry for the confusion. All the best to you,


  • Yvonne

    Hi Pete,

    How are you? I need your advice. So I just met this guy online like 2 days ok. Seems like a very nice person, but maybe it’s me he just seems to be moving to fast. He told me a lot about himself which is ok, but he wants to know like my entire life history. Past relationships, all about my work, family, etc. I’m not cool with telling someone zi just met online my entire life story. Even with guys I’ve dated in the past didn’t move that fast. I must admit we do share many common interest. What are your thoughts?

    I’m new to the online dating thing and would love to here your feedback.

    Thanks and have a Great Day!


    • Peter White

      Hi Yvonne,

      I’m doing absolutely wonderful. 🙂

      What about you? How’s your family? Have you ever been married? Do You want kids? What do you do for a living? 😀

      Seriously… Haha!

      Be wary of guys who move too fast or guys who ask questions like that. Not because it’s not a nice thing to do but I believe they need to learn a few communication skills to really know HOW to (and with) talk to women.

      Now I’m sure he’s probably just a nice guy who thinks this is what he’s supposed to do BUT never feel like you have to tell him everything.

      There are ways in which we, guys and gals, exchange information and learn about each other which are far more rewarding and fun and perhaps, he needs to learn this skill.

      I wouldn’t put him down for it. Just keep it all in mind and never let a guy move this fast. Back away. Change the subject. Talk about “other” things and make sure you set up a safe face to face meeting BEFORE you get too deep with him.

      And I WILL have a great night,


      • Yvonne aka Blessed247

        Hi Pete,

        Happy Wednesday!!! Thanks so much for the advice. I’ll let you know how things go.

        Have A a Great Day!

  • Samantha

    I met this guy in a class of mine and he was nice. He is shy, and gave your typical shy guy signs that he was interested. Due to the class situation we were in, it was super hard to have a conversation with him, but all in all we’ve had enough conversations to be aware of each other’s existence, so I’m talking five or six convos. Long story short, my friend let it slip that I had a crush on this guy, which I did not intend to happen. I haven’t seen him in a long one due to circumstances, but I sent him a message to clear things up and apologize. He said it’s okay and that he understands but in regards to me liking him, this was his response “I don’t want to rush into a relationship with someone I’m not already good friends with but I wouldn’t be opposed to being friends first and stuff.” So I’ve been stuck trying to figure out whether he means friends first then see what happens or if that was rejection?

    Also, I sent him a message in reply to his message, and he never replied to it, I’m not even sure he saw it.

    So what do you think is going on?

    • Peter White

      Hello Samantha,

      By all means tell your friend I’m upset with her and to never do that again. 🙂

      Please don’t apologize for her to him. He probably only saw it as you finding a reason to see if he likes you back. I realize it already happened but just felt I’d share how it could’ve backfired.

      My gut honestly tells me it was a rejection in the nicest way possible. They happen.

      Now that is not to say something won’t happen. Some guys take forever before they realize they’re attracted to someone. Friendships occasionally do turn into something more. It’s just not something to rely on unless you almost immediately change your tactics and the dynamics of the situation and work from that point. ( Probably only works because it’s better than just being friends and hoping something happening which barely ever give results.)

      Just please don’t build your life around the possibility of something happening.

      And certainly make sure you are exploring lots of other options.

      Thanks for writing and hope your friend keeps her mouth shut next time and allows you to do things your way, HAha!

      All the best to you,


  • Nicky

    I would appreciate a guy’s opinion so much. I am at this job for a year now and after 6 months I and a firend (co-worker) noticed a really handsome guy looking at me. I only see him at the beginning of the day and maybe at the end of our shift. At some point I stopped looking at him, because I liked him so much and I felt completely blocked. Now that I have started looking at him again, he doesn’t respond. What should I do?

  • Leslie

    I recently went on two dates with a man, and both dates were great! We didn’t kiss on the first but on the second. Now I have’t heard from him in a few days. I know he likes me, he told me he did! So what gives?

    • Peter White

      Hello Leslie,

      Relax 🙂 The right guys tend to take things slowly at first so this is a good thing.

      He kissed you. Told you he liked you. Unless he was only interested in sex and only got a kiss, which trust me is more rare than the latter, give him some time.

      Relationships grow over time and do better that way. Just like when you’re driving you don’t go from 0 to 100 instantly, you slowly build the momentum up. Catch your breath. Allow the feelings to seep in.

      At first it may be a few weeks between replies. Then a week. Then a few days. Then perhaps a few daily interactions.

      Trust me the “better” guys work that way and it’s much more fun and beneficial for both of you to have it work that way.

      It will be fine,


  • Nicole

    Hey Peter,
    I am confused about a guy I have been seeing for just about 6 months. We have yet to have any sort of exclusive talk where we actually agree to anything. People we talk to always assume we are a couple and we kind of laugh and make light of it. Last night we were out at a bar talking to another guy sitting next to me and the guy asked if we were together. I joked that we had just met so the guy seemed surprised because we seemed to know each other so well. We laughed and said it was a joke and my guy said that we were together. Sometimes he will say so and sometimes he won’t. I assume he thought this guy would hit on me if he said we were. Sometimes he refers to himself as “My man” and sometimes he talks about how he is a young single guy. He likes to bring up past flings and relationships but claims I do to. I don’t recall it other than when he just had pointed it out. While it bothers me, I usually just ignore him until he stops. He has also mentioned how bad his last relationship ended and how it had been a rebound that lasted too long. I asked if this is what he and I were doing and he looked at me like I was crazy and said it wasn’t because that relationship had ended a few years ago.

    We are insanely comfortable around each other and people we both know have said we seem to have known each other for a long time even though we just met in January. He introduced me to his best friend and other friends who he has told me countless stories about and as part of the introduction he said I am the lady hes been seeing and said that he had told them about me. When he said this to his best friend, his friend came over and hugged me and asked where he had been hiding me. It seemed like his friends liked me. It felt like a big deal yet I still feel like I am just a friend to him. We have a lot of fun together. I just don’t want to get stuck in a FWB situation. The mutual friend that introduced us told me after he and I started seeing each other that he said he saw a future with me.

    I guess what I need help clarifying is if bringing up an exclusive talk just to put it to rest is a good idea or not. I don’t want a label or to be called his girlfriend because I don’t really enjoy labels but it would help end some confusion. At the moment I don’t consider myself single but I don’t really consider myself taken either. I guess I must give off some vibe because I have been asked out a ton more recently and it has been awkward to say no because the follow up question always leads to me having to flat out say I am in a relationship which I don’t know that I am. It gets weird. I just want to know if we are exclusively dating each other or if this is casual. We have already established that we aren’t sleeping with other people, he has gone from not showing much affection in public to holding my hand when we walk or keeping close body contact when we are out. I don’t think any of that means much more than he likes me. I am over being sucked into these casual go no where relationships with people. Is it worth bringing up the subject or should I let things run their course and look for an opening bring it up?


    • Peter White

      Hey again Nicole,

      Normally guys don’t need to be nudged or even have to have “the talk” to solidify a relationship.

      If they’re capable and willing, they are more than happy to make it official. Sometimes it just takes longer for that to happen. Especially if they’re on the younger side.

      If he was forty and doing this then I would definitely say to make it official and bow out gracefully if a definite commitment is what you want.

      In your case, since neither one of you are actually seeing each other AND he’s showing clear signs that he’s progressing forward, (he has gone from not showing much affection in public to holding my hand when we walk or keeping close body contact when we are out) you’re both are kind of already in a relationship.

      Give it some more time Nicole. Six months is not that long at your ages. Let him have his fun with the whole, “I’m a single guy” one minute and yours the next. Keep busting his ass back make light of it all.

      The thing to remember here is, you’re both happy. Things appear to be moving forward, and slowly is good.

      In other words…. it’s working!!!

      I realize that answering other peoples questions can be a problem. You can always say, “Sorry, it’s complicated. :)” then give a little wink after. That works for me. 😀

      At some point, I agree you’re going to have to make a decision on whether to continue or not but I don’t think now is the time.

      The great part about all this is, if I’m wrong, you can always blame me. 🙂

      Remember, if it’s working and progressing slowly, that usually is a good thing.

      Wishing you all the best of luck and hoping you don’t have to blame me one day, HAha!

      Thanks and nice hearing from you again Nicole,


      • Nicole

        Haha thank you Peter!
        You are probably right. I get in my head too often. It’s been easier with him to stay out of my head. I met up the other night to watch him at his gig and he best friend showed up. We talked a bit and it turns out my guy had sent his best friend photos of some of my art work. When we stepped outside for a bit his best friend asked me what my intentions were. He wouldn’t tell me anything but he wanted to know what my intentions were with his best friend. It felt like concern but it also felt like he was feeling me out a bit.
        So as far as I know it’s going well. I am happy. Thank you for your advice. I’m sure no matter what I won’t blame you for anything! 😉

  • Christina

    My boyfriend and I have been dating for over a year and a half. We are both in our early twenties and I completely trust him. Recently, there’s been a girl (18) who has incessantly tried to get at my boyfriend: a “man-stealer,” if you will. I haven’t seen it as a huge issue because I trust that he won’t cheat on me, we have a pretty great relationship. However, my boyfriend is a nice guy and doesn’t understand that simple harmless actions (sending a snapchat, liking a picture, etc.) might make a girl think he is interested in her. This girl is throuroughly convinced that my boyfriend is into her and has started harassing me and telling me that he’s going to break up wth me for her. While I know that none of this is true and that she is simply trying to get into my head, it really bothers me that she continues to be disrespectful and that my boyfriend has no clue that he’s giving her ideas and essentially leading her on. How do I get this across to him without sounding jealous or needy? I just want this girl to back off and leave us alone.

    • Peter White

      Hello Christina,

      Great relationships normally have great communication. Use that to your advantage by being open and honest about it.

      If done right, he might see a little jealousy as cute or as a clear sign of how much you do love being with him AND that you’re concerned.

      You’re concerned about these items:

      She’s adding drama.

      She’s disrespecting you.

      She’s harassing you.

      If you don’t want to come across as needy or overly jealous then don’t go to him angry or overly emotional. Don’t play games in the background hoping he’ll get the hint.

      And definitely don’t go to him telling him he has no clue that he’s giving her the wrong idea. That would be disrespecting him and would be sort of calling him a “dumbass” who doesn’t get it.

      The one thing I DO know about people and communication is that there is never a guarantee the other person will get your point. Some, no matter what you do or say some will only ever see things from their perspective based on too many things to list.

      This simply means, Don’t get caught up in trying to force your point across… just be direct about how it makes you feel and how she is making you feel and NOT about what he’s doing wrong. That will only cause him to become defensive and might push him into her.

      Read this please, it’s at The Approach and was written by a relationship expert who gives great advice:

      I want you to read it because it will convince you that what you’re doing so far IS the right thing to do and how if your relationship is solid and your communication is clear and in order, bringing it up to him in the way I mentioned above won’t come across as needy.

      And how being a little jealous is NOT a bad thing or an emotion which needs to be kept behind a locked door. How sometimes jealousy is seen by a guy who is feeling attracted to you (within reason) is not always a bad thing.

      Her story won’t entirely pertain to you but it can show you what NOT to do and hopefully just by know thing, you’ll know exactly what to say AND how to say it too.

      Wishing you all the best and I do hope everything works out for both of you and of course that your man-stealer moves on to hunting someone else’s guy. 🙂
