    First date… now what????

    I’m a 22yr F. went out with this guy I met on bumble. We met at a bar, the conversation was awesome, he touched my leg numerous times. After our drink he wanted to show me around his campus, he took me to his favorite spot on campus, we hugged, he gave me his jacket and we did that thing were we almost kiss but instead our lips are just right next to each other & we are kind of breathing. said he wanted to kiss me but liked the anticipation of not. he asked to see me the following night. He texted me to make sure I got home safe and asked what we should do tomorrow night.(all thurs).Friday comes and he texts me saying it’s going to be a late night stuck at school working on a project and he just wanted to keep me informed. Then no text at all. Saturday morning he says he’s sorry he got slammed with work and would love to see me again at some point. I suggest Sunday. He says he’s ill and wants to catch me later in the week. I said sure & he never texted again. 3 weeks go by & nothing

    Odds are he met someone else and decided to “bench” you for now.

    “..he’s sorry he got slammed with work and would love to see me again at some point.”
    That’s called “bread crumbing” which is saying something to keep you hanging on while does his thing.

    Whenever you meet someone on an online dating site they most likely are keeping their options open.
    (FOMO) Fear of missing out is a real thing especially for many online daters.

    Anyone who has an active online dating profile is most likely contacting or being contacted by other people.
    If someone else (new) comes along which they perceive as being “better” they’re going to jump on it.
    The person whom they’ve already had a date with or have been in contact with is put on the shelf.

    A lot of people these days don’t even bother to text you with a lie. They simply ghost you!

    Your best defense in the future is to also keep your options open by dating multiple guys.
    Acting like you’re in a relationship can hurt you.

    He might be playing with you. Get close but not to close and it makes him feel good about being wanted without committing. He could have also found someone else. I would move on, a lot of other guys out there that deserve you more than him.
