Is it worth it to keep communicating with a guy who continues to text you every other day or so, but does not initiate another date? It's been almost a month since we last saw each other.
He and I met on online dating site in November, but we live an hour apart. I know the distance is a challenge, and we're both busy people. I wouldn't mind this if it's just a friendship thing, but we've already done romantic stuff and been on dates. I'm not crazy about him, but he is still a potential and I do like him...but if he's not initiating dates, then I don't see the point. (I initiated the previous date, fyi)
Honestly, if he isn't making enough of an effort, you need to talk to him about it. Come right out and ask him: "Is this going anywhere, because you don't seem to be interested in actually dating?" Based on the answer to that question, you can make your decision. Maybe he has a legit issue, or maybe he's just keeping you as a backup. You *should* find out which it is.
IMO, if you don't have a future, then there isn't much point in putting a lot of effort into this. Especially since the distance makes real contact that much more difficult. You could be moving on to someone local, and someone more interested.
I think he's still interested in you. Guys don't waste their time if they're not interested. I heard from several girls that guys that are not into them stop texting them after the first few dates. If he still continue to text is a good indicator that he still has interested unless he's really bored. I doubt that though.
If he isn't making any effort or very little to make another date then you should NOT talk to him about it. Move on as you would not want to put a gun to someone's head to make them date you. You would rather him want it. Find another guy.
Its such a waste of time. Like two years ago I was texting this guy and he told me oh how cute I am etc.. we never met up. And just about a week ago I got a text from an unknown number, I usually delete numbers within two weeks if I don't hear from them. So it was that guy from two years ago - and he asked me will we ever meet up - and I'm like no - you never asked me out so what do you think? Didn't hear back yet but some guys do that kinda stuff. I mean I'm pretty nice - I'll meet up with you for coffee or whatever but if you want something just ask... same for girls... if there is a guy I like I will make it clear - its up to them though :)
Start a conversation. Ask how he is to make sure I'm not being selfish and he's not just having a hard time or busy or whatever. Then flat out say "So...I guess it's safe to say you're just not all that into me? I'm just asking because you don't really make much of an effort. I'd like to know so I can move on with my life" something like that. Just be bold. You're an adult at this point so you are at the age where you should be able to have this kind of conversation openly and honestly.
Maybe he feel like the dating period is over with. I would ask him what is he looking for... I mean, don't give up so soon, he might want to be with you but is too afraid to go that route because of the distance. Bottom line is, have a talk with him before you leave.
I think you should let him go. He's not into you romantically. A guy who really liked you would be doing whatever it takes to spend time with you. Text him if you want, but remember this is friends only.
