I am about to meet this guy for the first time next weekend, we started talking on bumble. He wants to go on a date, and knows I'm interested in dating. He's about 6 years older than me, but we have a lot in common, however he sort of sucks at texting.
He always responds when I text with him, which is good - even if it's short 1 word answers. But he usually doesn't reach out first. I mean, I technically can say I haven't really given him a chance to lately since I always plan on texting him at the end of every day pretty much... but is this a bad sign? He's open and honest that he's talked with and went out with a few other girls but nothing serious... I'm just curious as to what opinions are. I told him I'm not going to just do a hookup or just sex, and he said he never is only interested in the sex.

It just means he's bad at texting or doesn't like texting. It's not that big of a deal and not that uncommon0

It's good that he's open and honest! That's really good actually! As for being 6 years older... That's a bit much, but if you trust him and you're both really sure about it, I say go for it! It's good that you've stated that you don't want his intentions being sex and that you've cleared that. And yeah, I feel you, guys aren't always that good in texting and he definitely seems like that type of guy. Honestly, you haven't even had your first date yet, so I say why not give it a shot. If he's not what you like, you don't need to message him anymore or anything. First dates say a lot about people and he hasn't had the chance to try that yet, so you can use it to truly evaluate him.0
