    He texts me but still no third date, is he string me along??

    So I met this guy online and we started chatting and he gave me his number so we met for a first date. Spent 5 hours together having a meal and cocktails. We regularly texted and a week later he asked me out to the cinema. It was an ok date but we didn’t obviously speak very much. Neither of these dates ended in any kissing. After this we have texted everyday. And that following weekend I asked him if he wasn’t busy we could catch up and get food. He did reply stating he had made plans that we should do it another time. We have continued to text and i told him I was free this weekend but he has yet to arrange anything with me but still texts saying what he’s up to etc.

    Should I forget about this guy?

    I am 27 he is 31. I have never been in a proper relationship before, not used to dating. Would like someone to help me because I can’t stop thinking about it and what action to take.

    In my opinion, perhaps you should consider moving on.

    If all he wants to do is text you and tell you about his other plans maybe he just want to be chat friends.

    “So I met this guy online….” If it’s a dating site most likely you are not the {only one} he’s considering!
    A common mistake many people make with meeting online is they emotionally invest in others too soon!
    Until there is a mutual meeting of the minds to focus on one another you should be keeping your options open too!
    He’s not “stringing you along” because you’re not a “couple” nor is he making you any promises.

    “he gave me his number so we met for a first date…” If a man is interested in YOU he will ask YOU for YOUR number!

    “i told him I was free this weekend but he has yet to arrange anything with me but still texts saying what he’s up to…”
    In other words he didn’t (acknowledge) your proposal to get together this weekend. He’s NOT infatuated with YOU.

    “Neither of these dates ended in any kissing.”
    If a man is “into you” he will likely flirt with you, use sexual innuendo, hold your hand, hug you, and attempt to kiss you.

    Welcome to the “Friend Zone”! Move on!

    If you want something the least you can do is ask for it

    Well that happened to me too. I reduced contact with him and we weren’t in touch for a little while, then he suddenly realized he should make a move. Maybe you should try this as well, to see his real intentions.

    Better ask the chap directly. There might be some other issues.
    Just call and have a decent chat.
    I remember when my dad fell sick, all my attention was focused on him. Nothing else mattered.

    Or the chap is overwhelmed by you and does not know hat to do.

    Call him up and ask.

    Find out the reason for the refusal, maybe something happened. If you need to offer your help. If everything is OK, wait for it to offer you a new meeting. Do not impose yourself, the man must choose you himself, then you will need him. Good luck
