    He replies frequently but never initiates. Whats going on?

    A guy and I matched on a dating app and we started talking. It started off well and he was opening up really quickly about his past relationship and said that he’s ready to put himself out there after a time off.

    3 weeks in and I realize that its always me who starts the conversations and even me coming up with all sorts of topics just to keep the conversation going only because I assume that he doesn’t mind replying. Because he always replies within an hour of my texting (he has a demanding job) and never ignores my texts. He only asks me if I ask him something. He was impressed that I remembered a small detail about him.

    The other day we were having a conversation and I said ” i’m trying to get to know you” to which he replied “I am a broken human, there’s not much to know” with a laughing emoji. This left me confused as I’m assuming that he’s saying that he’s emotionally unavailable. He started following me on socials and likes all my posts and views my stories without fail.

    I’m confused….

    “A guy and I matched on a dating app…”
    “3 weeks in and I realize that its always me who starts the conversations..”
    “…he replied “I am a broken human, there’s not much to know” with a laughing emoji”

    Basically he’s telling you he’s not interested in going beneath the surface.
    Generally speaking if a woman has to “figure out” a guy it means he’s NOT all that “into” her!

    You should move on and avoid getting caught up in trying to fix a “broken human”.
    Life is too short to be trying to change water into wine.
    The goal is to find someone who (already is) what you want.

    It’s also mistake to zero in on (one person) and become emotionally invested too quickly.
    This is especially true if you meet on a dating site. Odds are he’s keeping his options open and so should you!
    If you were seeking a job you wouldn’t stop sending out your resume because you had a great interview with one company.
