    Is this a date or not??

    I know this guy from where I used to work who has asked me to meet him next weekend for a drink. He started messaging me during the olympics last year, he ended first message with “x” (kiss) which surprised me. These messages often went on until after midnight. Then there was a gap so I messaged him and found out he was really busy with work and family issues. We arranged to meet for a coffee after a few rainchecks, which turned into lunch and although we both said we should do it again, I honestly expected it to be another lunch sometime.

    He was in a long-term relationship then told me he had met someone else. As I haven’t been in a relationship for a while I’m not sure whether I’m misinterpreting his invitation. Haven’t replied to him yet, thought I would leave it a couple of days so I don’t appear too keen. We share some interests but there’s quite an age gap (he’s younger than me). I don’t think he’s realised this as I don’t look my age. Am I over-analysing this?

    It doesn’t sound like a date in my opinion . Seems like catching up over drinks

    Hi there, I’m reading this a bit late lol.
    Can I ask what happened? if you don’t mind.
    I thought he sounded interested in you but he was unsure of your feelings towards him (because of age gap maybe).

    Treez64, it hasn’t happened yet. I replied and said yes but not heard anything further from him. It’s supposed to be next weekend.

    Don’t know if he’s a good judge of age or not, we’ll have to see………

    I think you are open to it, if you are being honest lol.

    And drinks is more sexual. It’s going in that direction.

    So, go and find out.

    I think it was more of a casual get-to-know you, but doesn’t mean there might not be a proper date. I hope it turns out for the best for you

    Sorry it doesn’t sound like a date, it sounds more like friends talking over lunch/coffee to catch up on their lives.

    I have to agree… doesn’t sound like he was all too interested.. But my advice is not to take it personally. As Miranda from SATS says – He is just not that into me! Burger (Kerry’s boyfriend at the time) told her that when she was over-analyzing things about a date that didn’t want to come to her apartment after a date.

    Definitely confusing. Sounds like he was interested and now isn’t? Did he say he was in a long term relationship? B/c that changes things…
