Cut a long story short I've been chatting by phone and text to a guy I messaged on a online dating site for the pass week , we get on well he's great and we texted every day since but yesterday I didn't hear from him :/ do I just let it go and move on? I really liked him and we both said we felt a connection , do I just not text? I texted him yesterday morning to say have a nice day etc and he said for me to also but nothing since , what should I do? Wait for him to contact? Or move on? I'm new to the dating game

I wouldn't think of it as a game. I see a lot of people on here talk about someone they've been 'dating' for months but never met in person. I know you've only been talking to him for a week but any reason why you guys haven't set up a date?
I've done online dating and as soon as I decide to give him my phone number we set up a date. Usually just a drink after work and I go into it with no expectation of a second. It is usually a good idea to have another first date with someone else in the works. For me if the date goes well the date with the other guy can help you measure that or if the first date is less than well you aren't bummed because you have another one later that week.
That's not to say I date more than one guy at once. For me three or so dates is enough to know if I want to pursue a relationship with someone. With my current boyfriend I knew for sure by the end of our second date. You just have to find what works for you and keep it casual. Not everyone that peaks your interest is going to be right for a relationship with you so I always go in knowing that and being surprised when they ARE a good fit. Best0
