Met a guy online had our first date on Saturday. The next day I texted him a thank you text that said, Hey, thanks for a good time last night, hope you're having a relaxing Sunday". He wrote back, Thank had a great time too! Hope you have a great day...... "Hope you have a great day". am I reading into this too much, I mean yes great he wrote back, but is he writing me off?

I don't think there is anything wrong with his text.  I think maybe you're just a bit paranoid because you do like him and are worried he doesn't feel the same.  But I wouldn't worry just yet, it sounds to me like he is being genuine Wink

Text messages are useless!  He said exactly what you said.  It means exactly what it means.  Have a nice day!  Nothing more.  He didn't gush......does that mean he's writing you off?   You'll find out if you never hear from him again.

I don't think it's bad to text or email to say you had a good time.  I can't imagine that a guy who wanted to ask you out again would decide not to ask you out because you said you had a good time--it's encouraging him to do so.  Other than doing that, then I'd wait to see what happened.

I would not contact him again. If he is interested in seeing you/spending time with you, he will reach out to you. I usually am never the first to start a text or phone exchange after a first meeting. If the guy is not interested enough to contact me, I don't want to go there.

I'd give it a week and if you don't hear from him I'd say maybe he's not that interested in pursuing another date.

I suppose I expected him to talk about maybe meeting up again. If I don't hear from him in 3 days should I text him...or just forget about him.

I don't get it. What part of his text to you would make you think he's writing you off?

You're reading waaay too much into it. You should consider his reply to mean that he also had a good time, and that he hoped your day was going well. If he was writing you off he probably wouldn't have replied that he had a good time too.

You are definitely reading into it. If I had gotten that message I would have interpretted it to mean he is opening the door for another date by seeing what plans I have for the day.
