I matched with a guy online that I developed feelings for (which I can say has never happened with anyone else I matched with tbh). We text a little everyday but he hasn't messaged me back and cont'd

How long have you been talking? Always remember people are talking to a ton of people online. And any little thing you do can be a reason to stop talking and answering you. If he wanted to talk to you he would. It’s that simple. Personally I’d move on but that’s me

I say shoot him a text, and if he doesn't respond within a certain time period be done with it. Delete his number and all that.

He can text from almost anywhere at almost anytime. If he is really interested then he has more than enough opportunity to reply.

Unfortunately nothing like that was mentioned.. starting to feel like I shouldn't reach out now lol just weird bc he started off saying how lucky he felt to have matched with me

If it makes you feel any better, I once had amazing chemistry with a guy via messaging on a dating app. Once I met him I was like “oh my god what was I thinking.” Don’t sweat it too much and start messaging some other guys. Also, texting is meaningless. If looking for something more substantial step it up to phone call or zoom.

Thank you. I agree. I was just hoping the texts would evolve into calls and zoom

I felt this. A couple years ago, I matched with a guy I had amazing chemistry with. I was falling for him fast and it hasn’t even been a full month since we started hanging out. However, he was not texting me back as much as I wanted him to. He only texted me on the weekend, never during the week. I was hoping our hang outs at night would eventually turn into hang outs during the day too and talk to him more about personal things. The last thing I wanted was for him to lead me on so I actually straight up asked him “where are you at with me? I want to have an honest conversation. You know what I want, but what do you want?” His response was “oh I dk....” and mumbled “I’ll let you know when I know” lmao. That was very telling we weren’t on the same page and I stopped pursuing him. It’s only been two weeks for you, but maybe it won’t hurt to talk to him about it.

This conversation is really for you to be able to move on more easily :) sadly I think this guy is a goner. if you don’t do anything, he’ll prob never reach out, or texting will be more and more sparse. If you want to talk about it with him to see where he’s at, it would be nice to do it in person (if you’ve met up with him before). If you haven’t met up with him yet, would you feel comfortable asking him to meet up? The meet up would just to hang out and see if the connection is rly there. If he says no, then I think you’ve got your answer.

It's been 2 days. Should I let him know that I've been thinking about him and hope everythings okay? Or does that just make me desperate

Couple weeks
