The fact that this guy came back with an apology and explanation is a good thing, but my big question is why couldn’t he have been honest and just told you this, rather than blocking you without a word? Why did he have a problem openly communicating this to you?
There is a healthy excitement in a new partnership when you minimize your early expectations and have time to miss each other. Be communicative but also give things time to blossom at a natural pace. It’s definitely worth getting to know someone the old fashioned way.
When you are meeting someone for the first time you really need to pay close attention and listen to what they are saying. If your date is adamant about not wanting to be in a relationship BELIEVE THEM!
The old expression: “You snooze you lose,” can often be a very true statement in dating circumstances. Standing back and taking your time to initiate the first date can put you on the back burner and less of a texting priority when it comes to potential suitors!
