it could be due to anything... Just where you didn't feel like you could handle a full relationship or maybe you thought you wanted the moment to be perfect for when you start taking her out, or anything along those lines.
If if you could provide opinions and reasons that would be great

For either a girl or a guy, it's important to know that you'll be able to fully commit to a relationship (like a full-time job) if you're planning for the long haul. Otherwise, short-term dating or casual encounters are where it's at!
Personally, I have had to let go of one of my longest relationships because I simply did not have enough time/attention to offer her, and it stressed her out to the point that holding on did more damage than letting go. Working full time at a lab, studying for medical school, and balancing a long-term relationship contributed to one of the most stressful episodes in our lives. No matter how much I shifted my schedule around to accommodate, she never felt like she was the most important thing in my life despite how much I reassured her. The result was heartbreak: something that we both saw coming but refused to address early on in our relationship.
You might feel like you're missing out on something by not trying, but the responsible thing to do would be to date long-term when you have the time and resources to commit. Nobody wants to feel like your #100th priority in life, least of all your significant other.
I was talking to a girl a few months back, she was interested in me and I was interested in her. I didn't really get much time to see her because I had to spend a few weeks out of town, but we still got in touch. When I got back she was busy with commitments of her own. By the time I finally asked her out it appeared she lost interest
Yes, I hardly met my ex and she wanted us to go to coffees etc. But I knew I'm just a kid and I will blow our relationship. I've some kind of subconsiously always knew I want to be with her for the long haul. Well it didn't work out in my favour obviously but we had 3 great years.
Yes, I was seeing a girl before I started my degree program (this was 4 years ago) and would hang out with her quite often; however when school started, I hardly saw her because I worked full time and went to school full time but the issue was we drifted apart and she wasn't happy with the situation so therefore started seeing someone else... I mean this stuff happens but it would of been great if she kept by my side during the tough times
Yes. I have, on a few occasions, foregone starting a relationship with a few women.
Once, it was with someone who asked me out online. We had gone on a few dates but then I realized I hadn't moved on from the previous girl.
One other time, it was someone I had a pretty good chemistry with, as far as acquaintances go. I remembered how much I had going on at the time and how it would be unwise to start something and not be able to follow through.
All of my reasons applied to me alone. I was not ready for anything during those times. I doubt I would get those chances again when I AM ready.
Yes, and it fell through and we never ended up dating. It was shit timing on my part. Its different for everyone, if you feel that your chance will still be there after said circumstances have passed then it would be safe to wait. But if you feel that its a now or never situation, go for it now, whats another iron in the fire? There's never a right moment for anything, just the most opportune one.
