    Am I just being paranoid?

    I’ve met this man, we’ve only gone on 3 dates, they have all gone really well. I did have really low expectations as well so i am quite surprised that i like him.
    the past few days though its taking longer for him to text back, and he’s being a bit more blunt with me. He also hasn’t asked me out again, when usually he would ask me to go on another date 1 or 2 days after. Has he lost interest in me? Should I back off a bit to see if he actually makes an effort to speak to me?

    I’ve been in a similar situation as you, where the guy was initially very proactive and asked me out for the next date at the end of the date we were on. But then after a while he just kept disappearing for the week and only making plans with me the Thursday before the weekend. In my case, it was because he was in med school and just didn’t understand time management. Is your guy super busy with his job, or maybe does he have something that is causing him to be so preoccupied lately? Do you text him often/do you start the conversations often in comparison to him? On your dates, do you think he’s been flirty with you or is he pretty civil? If you are the one that starts conversations more than him, maybe try not texting him right away for a while and see if he picks up the slack. Also depends on how much you like him… if you’re really interested then I’d say you could also just ask him out and see his response. Otherwise, maybe just wait it out? Good luck!

    Maybe you should send him a very relaxed text saying hey let me know whenever your free so we can hang out and catch up. It can’t hurt to try that.

    It’s possible he may have, but if I were you, I wouldn’t push it because I’m not the type that likes men who play games.
