I've been seeing this guy for a few weeks and so far I like him. He seems really into me also and never ceases to impress or amaze me. Anyhow, he is unique in some ways as we all are. One way in particular I am curious to get some input on (not that it's anything bad) is that I notice whenever we speak, he always sends a follow up text the next day thanking me for the conversation and for my time. Also recently, I checked in with him to see how he was doing because I know he's under tremendous stress at the moment. And after I told him to have a good day, he wished me the same and thanked me for thinking about him.  He's a good man and chivalrous when we go out. This really isn't an issue, I'm just curious to know why he does this because It's new to me. What do you make of this?

He's doing what one is supposed to do when going for a job interview and/or business marketing. He obviously doesn't draw a distinction between contacts for personal matters and professional networking.

Sounds like a guy with good manners to me.  But only time will tell how sincere he is.  Is he truly thinking of you? or just doing these things because he thinks it's a good idea...and after a while he'll stop doing them.

Don't get me wrong, his strategies are good.  I would love to have a man who was this attentive.  If it works for the two of you, I would not think of it as a negative.  We could all stand to give this kind of feedback to our loved ones.

If you are otherwise satisfied with the relationship, I would just go with it.


Have you read the Five Love Languages?  Maybe this is just a new way of communicating for you.

My boyfriend of 6 months was the same way at first. I was shocked at first, it wasn't something I was used to. Thank you's and your welcomes and I'm sorry.  But now after 6 months, he's still amazing but the "uniqueness" as you call it, is not as often.  I think some men are just raised to show respect to others and their feelings.  I say lap it up girlfriend... too many rude, crude, selfish men out there that couldn't care less :) Enjoy it!!
