Any advice would be so much apprecitated. It has been a long time since my last date. Has it just been a long time since my last date I feel like I read this guy all wrong? Did he even like me? I feel so unattractive right now.
I met this guy at a business meeting. I thought he was cute. We talked during the break. He invites me back to his office. He introduces me to his staff. He asked me for my number. I gave it to him. I won't lie I was really flattered. Half hour later he text me back saying that he enjoyed meeting me. The next day he calls and we talk for like 4 hours. He asked things like my favorite shows, foods, and games. All these things we have in common. It almost seemed like he didn't want to get off the phone. There was a movie coming out that we both wanted to see. I asked him if he wanted to see it. He said yes and he could wait. We planned on a time.
I invited him to show about an 1hr earlier so we could talk. He walks into my house. He said you have a really nice house. Thank You I said. Do you own? No, he said, he rents. He got kinda quiet. We talked so more. He asked about dinner places and I told him (We live in different towns). He drove to the theater. We talked this time when we talked he seems distracted and he seems nervous. What really didn't help things was my brother kept calling and I finally picked up and told him I couldnt talk. We went to see the movie and he seems even more nervous like he didn't know how to act. It was bizarre. During the movie and while we talked I wasn't sure if it was two friends hanging out or a date. So I acted like two friends hanging out. What was even more bizarre is how how he ran out of the theatre after it was over. I had to run to catch up with him. He looks at me and goes there you are. We walk to his car. I was so stunned I didn't know what to say. He walked my half way to to door said Well goodnight. I didn't even think to ask him if he wanted to stick around I was so stunned.
He texted saying that he had a good time and liked the movie. About 6 hours later I get a text "Did I do okay? Was I awkard?". I tell him that he was fine and was sorry I made feel like he had to run off like that. He blamed my brother saying he thought I had to go somewhere. I told him no I didn't have anywhere to go.
I still hear from him about once a week, the same day and time every week. We used to a little bit longer but they have gotten even shorter since he found out that I don't drink. Now the conversations are short and to the point. Mostly hi how are you? I am fine. That is good. Talk to you later.
His company works with mine. So there is a slim chance we will have to work together in the future. However, the probability of me seeing him again is not very high. So why keep texting?
How did I misread the signals? I would be fine with him stopping it all together. I basically wrote him off. I just can't get over the fact that I misread the signal. Where did the date go wrong?
