    What am I doing wrong?

    Long story short, I’ve been single for a few years now & I’ve attempted to get to know a few girls throughout that time.. but, every time it’s the same story. We’ll text/talk for a a week or so then it’s just over. They just won’t respond anymore. I’m always a gentleman & say good morning/night, have a good day stuff like that. It kinda depresses me because it makes me feel like I’m just not good enough but I let it go an move on. Well about a week ago I met a girl & got her number. We text a few times but she was always slow to respond, like hours would go by without a response but when she did respond it seemed like she was interested in me & wanted to talk. Well she hasn’t replied for 2 days now. I’ve text her “good morning” both days but no response. I’m assuming that’s that & I won’t be getting a response anymore because that’s just what happens every time. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. It’s the same story every time. Talk for a little bit then they just won’t respond.

    I’ve got the same situation going on try changing it up and calling. Express your interest in meeting them again early so you can weed out who is actually interested or just giving you there number just because.

    Try meeting with her. She’s not your girlfriend to say good morning every day. Take your time 🙂

    Hi Pete please don’t say you’re not good enough. You’re making a genuine effort here. I’ve met loads of guys where things seem really hot for a little while then they freeze you out. Don’t take it personally. It takes time to get to know someone. Maybe people don’t like texting. She may not necessarily be ignoring you. She may have issues from past relationships, or feel obliged to respond to you. Maybe give her a few days space. She may wonder why you stopped texting. Maybe she likes you to make the first move. Which ever way you go, don’t stress it. If someone is interested in you, they’ll respond. If not, know you did your best. Good luck.

    Hey Pete, have you tried going out on dates with them? When you get their number, let them know you’re looking to see them and say “hey I’d like to take you out sometime [insert timeframe here] and follow through with an invitation. Making it formal from the start ensures you are only talking to girls who actually want to hang out.
