I am recently single and have begun dating again. I haven't been single in a long time so I forget the "rules" for how to start something new without coming across as needy.
My situation - I went on a blind date on Saturday night. He seemed pretty into me, was holding my hand and was affectionate with me. He told me he had a great time and would love to see me again. We both chickened out at the end of the night, so no kiss. I texted him after and said "Totally should've kissed you goodnight!" he said "Yeah what's up with that ;) I had fun, we have to do it again soon!" (for the second time) to which I agreed.
He texted me the next day just making random small talk. The conversation kind of fizzled because we were both busy and we haven't spoken since.
Now it is Tuesday. Am I supposed to text him since he initially made contact on Sunday? Or should i wait for him to see if we should hang out again?
I am the WORST with this stuff. So help me out, what do I do?
Yeah, try to see each other in person again. Texting isn't really meant for bonding, more so for setting up dates. You could literally just text him " so are you taking me out this weekend or nah" and you'll be good. Texting is a bit of a hit or miss. You might want to talk to each other but if no one really has anything to say over text it's better to set up a date
Tricky situation. Maybe just text him something which doesn't have to do with anything like "I saw this..." or "´did you know about that..." The reason behind this is because you aren't being direct and are subtly initiating contact again and hiding your intentions. If you take a direct approach you might make him feel guilty, deter him or making him not too keen to meet up again. You can always be direct afterwards if you think it is the best way for you.
Human nature + chemistry !! There are no rules , and if someone says there is... Move on quickly. !! Can't place rules on human nature !!! Make a move your self and if he can't handle it. , then move on quickly.
