WWYD: Guy doesn’t respond in a week, but emphasizes he wants to go on another date.
Me: ego bruised, felt ghosted & didn’t respond.
Now it’s been over a week, haven’t responded and haven’t heard from him again. Thinking about it, I did enjoy my time with him. Should I reach out or let it go?

Like Elsa says- let it go!


It’s the “scarcity” feeling - marketing uses it all the time - the more a product is unavailable the more we think “oh it must be so valuable, I want it!!” - but relationships are not products.


Let it go- if he wanted you, you’d know. There wouldn’t be a doubt in your mind if he was interested or not.


Unless he was on vacation or something, a week is a long time for a post-date follow up text. Sounds like he’s interested but also playing the field still & not ready to commit.

I would move on, find someone who is more eager to see you again.


It’s just not mutual. He lied when he said he wanted to go on another date. How do you know? Because if he wanted to, he’d have set up another date.

He’s not busy, he’s not overwhelmed with personal stuff. He’s just not that into you.

Go find someone that vies for you.


Don’t do it.. best to move on


Hmmm massive player vibes / or someone who is testing all the waters and you’re just one more… proceed with caution if you still want to


A week is too long, unless he was out of the country and you knew that beforehand.

If I don't hear from someone more than 2 days after our date, I'm not going on another date with him.


Did the last message take him a week to send and said he wanted to hang out again? And you haven't responded?


lol sounds just like me too, A1. I will try option 2 this time 😫
