Hmm, did you have some kind of sex with him, either before or after your question about giving it a go?September 18, 2017 at 7:30 am #717284
No, we didn’t have sex, but we went the furthest I’ve gone with someone and that I was comfortable with.September 18, 2017 at 7:48 am #717285
Yeah, I think that was kind of a normal freakout then. I mean, not great, but understandable. I would say just take it day by day and try not to have any expectations about him at all. He handled it well, but yeah, 4 dates is too soon to talk about being exclusive. You’re not even really sure you like him, momentum will get lost in two weeks… keep your options open and meet other guys. It’s not that you did anything that bad, just that 4 dates is too soon to get attached.September 18, 2017 at 8:45 am #717295
Thanks. Yeah, maybe it was the rush of hormones and everything. I definitely am not ready to be exclusive either. I do keep swiping and looking, nobody has really caught my eye, but I won’t feel so guilty for doing so. He’s been really understanding about everything so far and sent me a quick text this morning about something I mentioned in my text to him last night telling him I got home (unrelated to all this).September 18, 2017 at 9:09 am #717299
I wouldn’t worry about it @hfantods. He handled it well. Sounds like he likes you, so just keep taking it date by date!September 19, 2017 at 5:45 am #717435
He asked if we could meet up even just for half an hour tomorrow night before I leave Thursday. I have something 7-8 which is why I was busy all week, but I’m happy to see him before I go. So yeah! Date by date. I think we are all just figuring out whether we like each other and the only way to do that is to spend time together. I’ll stop giving you guys play by plays in my dating life now 😉September 19, 2017 at 8:07 am #717452
Hey we like the play by plays!September 19, 2017 at 8:25 am #717455
I like them too!September 19, 2017 at 8:34 am #717459
I also happen to enjoy the play by plays 🙂
I have date number 6 on Friday night! He’s coming to my town and I’m making dinner and we might go to an outdoor art show. He seems very willing to travel to me so I can tell hes definitely interested.
Also, side note, I have interview #2 today for my dream job and I’m nervous so any words of encouragement or distraction would go a long way 🙂September 19, 2017 at 9:52 am #717488
I like the play by plays, too!
I have nothing to report. I was out of town for a few days, then immediately had an ultra short overnight work trip. I’m now home and exhausted. Awkward Texter and I are still in contact, but now HE is going out of town. I’m feeling pretty hopeless about this right now. He travels for work quite a bit. I usually don’t, but have two trips in October. He has a big overseas work trip in October. I feel like the only ending we’re going to have is a big fizzle.
ETA: Looks like I’m finally getting my puppy tonight. So there’s that!September 19, 2017 at 8:02 pm #717584
Haha, I like your folks’ play by plays too.
@ver, hope your interview went well today! Fingers crossed 🙂 And yay, that sounds like a great date!
@copa, puppy!!! It feels like you and him are trying to keep in touch so there is still mutual interest. I don’t think this has to end in a fizzle unless you want it to. It’s sucky timing for essentially strangers meeting up via the internet, but if it’s “meant to be”, then one month shouldn’t affect it in the larger picture. Perhaps keep in light contact in October and then come November, pick it up again and then see how it goes. Easier said than done, obvs.September 20, 2017 at 9:02 am #717623
Yeah, soooo, I did some swiping last night because I didn’t like feeling anxious about Awkward Texter. I started texting a new guy who seems pretty cool and we’re already planning to meet up next week. He wanted to meet on Thursday or Friday but I have plans tomorrow and a cousin coming into town for the weekend on Friday. Still talking to A.T., but trying not to put all my eggs in one basket. I’ll let you know how my attempt at playing the field goes.
My puppy is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. He’s my type! Haha. I’m excited to get into a routine with him.
