I would be turned off with less texting than that. If I ever get a guy who seems to worry if I don't answer promtly after only a couple of emails, I don't even bother continuing with him. I think it's strange.

If you feel that he has a maturity of a kid, then you have your answer. Do you want to involved with someone how doesn't have a life and immature ?

The car part is pretty superficial in my opinion, though. If the guy was good, then you could just rent a car. Maybe he's also comfortable with the public transit.

I'm curious about why you didn't respond to any of the texts--were you at work?

I agree that the car thing is supercial. When I mentioned that I like road trips in the summer, he suggested we can go with a tour bus. I was hoping he would say, we could rent a car or something like that.

Yea, to me these kind of texts would be strange, the same goes for the compliments about your niceness (since you haven't met and haven't done anything nice to him) and your weight (!). But maybe I judge too fast, I've eliminated so many guys that I only went to 2 dates after being connected for about 2 months. I think an educated man would act differently.

Sireanita,

I am afraid of being too quick to eliminate guys too.

I just got another text :

"Hows your day hot stuff?"

Hey, I am reading this book by Lori Gottlieb.

I think you and me are in a different situation. If I remember correctly, you have a child. You don't have to worry about the biological clock like I do. Just turned 35 yesterday.

I already told him I don't email alot and lets meet for coffee.

I will at least meet him before I write him off completely.

Thanks for sharing your experiences as a single mom.

Yes, I will continue to find a good guy to start a family.

The thing w/ texting as opposed to email is you only get these bits & pieces.
