Sooo... I reconnected with a guy I have known for 14 years via facebook 3 weeks ago (he emailed me).

Seriously you need to calm down--you just started dating this guy & I can already see dreams going on in your mind of when the wedding is going to be.

If you look at every man as a potential spouse - you are going to be disappointed - some men go fast and some don't - there is no normal time - and whydid you sleep with him so fast.

There is clearly a strong connection here that has a real history long ago and now current. I'd lay low for a couple of weeks. Believe it or not, a girl we are attracted to is ALWAYS in our head! Let that play out. The intensity of a rekindled relationship can sometimes scare us for a little bit, so we need a little time to process what happened, so we may "hide".

Be available if he calls, but make your own plans and if he calls late then tell him "I'd love to go out with you, but I went ahead and made plans." Then add something like "How about next......?"
