    Friends set me up with their single friend

    So, I am usually not one for being set up – but I made an exception for the person I’m speaking to.

    A few friends thought I would be a great fit for their friend – 33 years old & single (same as me). So we began talking, exchanging text messages & phone conversations & she had the idea that we get together this coming weekend, which is nice. But, I feel like i am getting mixed signals from her, even before we get together this weekend. The messages she sends (in conversations that she initiates) sometimes get one-wordy, and cold in some cases. Now, I can totally read when a text conversation is coming to an end for the time being, and put an end to it with lines like, “go do your thing, we’ll talk later”.

    Granted, the conversation we had that sparked these concerns came after a long work day – but I want to make sure that I am not missing a signal that didn’t exist yesterday or the day before that – or am I just reading into it bc I don’t know her well enough, yet?

    Continued: Am I reading too much into an issue that doesn’t exist, or…? I know how to treat these things…I always give someone I am dating or just talking to prior to getting together a ton of space. But I don’t want to try too hard.

    Thoughts/comments?

    I wouldn’t worry much about it at all. I am sure that you are just as busy with life as she is. Since she said that she wanted to get together this weekend I’m sure that you are good.

    I agree, if she wants to do stuff this weekend, I would just leave it at that and take that as a blessing that you don’t have to do any more of the bullshit pre-date texting nonsense.

    I met the person that I’m seeing through my best friend. I felt the exact same way as you did .. sometimes I would get one word answers, and closed conversation. I originally thought he wasn’t interested, until I found out that he was shy, and doesn’t normally talk to girls. I thought differently because he was really good-looking. So my advice to you is, don’t over think things.. don’t worry about it too much.
