    Flaking because of disinterest or genuine?

    I met this guy through tinder a couple of weeks ago and we’ve been texting everyday since. We spent a week texting through tinder and then followed each other on instagram. After that he’s been really actively maintaining contact, commenting compliments on photos, replying to stories and interested in me as a person.

    I suggested we go get a drink on Thursday and he said yes enthusiastically. The day arrives and he texts me saying he’s excited to meet me, however later on he tells me he is feeling sick but can still make it. We end up deciding to reschedule to Sunday.

    So the sunday arrives and he texts me excited about the date again, suggesting we should do a record swap since we both have similar music tastes. He then texts me saying he forgot he had to help his sibling move and he was very sorry. I told him it was ok and he replied that he would make it up to me. A few hours later he mentions the move was crazy and says sorry again.

    Is he interested or stringing me along?

    I don’t like to jump the gun but it sounds like hes stringing you along. Him feeling sick I definitely get but forgetting you had to help someone move not likely. If he was so excited to meet he could have suggested a different time rather than cancel.

    1. You may be a “Catfish” victim.
    You should suggest doing a (video chat) with him and see if he backs out.

    Catfish victims have been known to emotionally invest in people they’ve never met.
    Each time they are about to meet the catfish has a reason why they can’t.
    In the mean time he or she maintains contact with the victim causing to believe they’re falling in love.
    Some people have even gotten engaged without ever seeing each other in person or hearing their voice.
    Profile photos and other images may belong to another person altogether.

    2. He’s too busy dating other women or may be in a relationship/marriage.
    When someone is using online dating sites and apps they’re usually engaged with more than one person.
    No one job hunts by sending out one resume to one company and waiting to see if they get a job before summitting to another company. Odds are he’s keeping his options open and seeing other women. If he’s already with someone it may be hard for him to breakaway. Move on!
