    Another "what should I do" thread

    I started talking to this guy through a dating app since 2 months ago and we finally met for the first time last Sunday. During the course of our texting exchanges, he seemed to be a little interested in me (at least). He mentioned wanting to meet up 2 or 3 times, saying that he wanted to see me when he’s back in the city. So we decided to go get some drinks together.
    When we met, he was pretty kind to me, saying next time we’d go out for dinner not just drinks, and asked me what kinds of food I like. He even said he’d buy me a phone accessory like his (about $10 worth) if I liked it. When we were about to part ways he stopped by his room to get me a souvenir (chocolate), and ordered Uber for me (he paid for the trip)
    But I remember hazily he kinda mentioned he was going to be busy this week though, so after the meet-up (can I call it a date btw?) I texted thanking him after I got home, then we exchanged a few words and said goodnight.

    Monday I said good morning to him and wished him a great week, he replied in the early afternoon, then I replied to him once in the early evening. All those pleasantries, nothing deep.
    Tuesday morning he said good morning to me first and I replied in the evening (for all he knows I might have been busy too). In fact I’m just trying to play it cool so he wouldn’t think I’m trying too hard, but was that the right thing to do? Waiting 12 hours before replying to him?
    Today is Wednesday, we didn’t text at all. Should I text him to say good night at the very least? Would there be a chance he’s not interested in me anymore despite all those kindness and (sorta) promises he made?

    seriously, too early to start freaking out. I know its hard when a guy at first through text really pursues you. Just relax and don’t text him. Guys love a challenge and things that are not easy for him. Make him work for you and see that you are worth it. Let him ask you out again. If you don’t hear from him in a day or two just send him a funny meme or something to remind him how great you are. He will come after you if he really wants you. Just relax! Don’t settle for him yet. Date other guys, keep your options open.
