so I was emailing with this guy for a while on Sunday. He asked for my number, then he texted me and said he would call Monday.  I saw him logged on to the site Monday night, no call.  Tuesday, however, he texts me during lunch to say hi.  I reply and say hi back and asked how he was. He replied and said he was busy but just wanted to say hi.   So he's been online every night since then, no call yet........    why?  no one will ever know but him... or maybe he found someone better so soon.

I would not like this.  It makes no sense for a guy to ask for your number and say that he will call you on a specific night & then not call.  I do think the not calling but texting just to say hi might be keeping you on the back burner, like he met someone but if she doesn't work out, then you will be number 2.

My educated guess is that he met someone who appears to be a better prospect. However, he is not at all sure if things will work out with her, so he is keeping some level of contact with you.

First cookies will record you/him online when they are not on the site.  So if he is writing a report and is also on the web(as most of us are) it will show him "online".  In other words you are online once you login to the computer. 

  So he is on the computer but not necessarily on that site!  He could be watching a show or a movie.
