Hello all!


I am new here at posting to the site and I have an interesting question to pose to you all.


At the end of what seemed like a very good first meeting with someone

You’re over-analyzing it.

Thanks for the friendly welcome LOL.

I just supplied the information I did only to be helpful in figuring out what "call me sometime" meant since I never had that happen to me before. A blanket statement like that could mean a hundred different things depending on what led up to it and what happened afterwards. Personally it didn't make sense to me to phrase something like that if you were just being polite because you are opening the door to unwanted contact--which is why I asked the question: Is this the new *I'll call you but don't really mean to* line?

You're right, he would be contacting me if he was interested. I only initiated 2 texts after our date in a way I am more familiar with how to gauge a man's interest (putting the ball into his court) and haven't contacted him since. Even before your response I deleted his number from my phone since it's not looking good. As for moving on, there was nothing to hang on to begin with only a week and a half of contact and one meeting. Already speaking with 2 different guys at the moment who seem like good prospects and I am meeting one on Wednesday for drinks :). I just like to learn as much possible about the dating world since it's been a long time since I've been single. Not sure how much has changed since I've been out there last, but apparently there are more passive aggressive men out there than there was before.

Again. Thanks for your response, albeit not the most welcoming and tactful, but still welcomed :)

Candy, the online dating thing can be tough and sometimes the reponses on here can be rought but its kind of a tough love type of thing.

Hard to say. Some people are very confusing. Maybe he's really sick and will contact you when he feels better. I would stop contacting him, I think you did enough and the ball is in his court.

As for azure, this person seems to enjoy being rude to people, so as he/she said: whatever, don't pay attention. Don't let it stop you from posting on these boards !
