So here's my dilemma, I met a man via an online dating site and we hit it off with in a light hearted kind of banter, after a week I sent him my number and said if he'd like to text me (because in the past that's usually how the men I've dated correspond) I'd love to hear from him.
He called and we agreed to meet, we were getting along fabulously, flirting, him calling me a sweetheart and saying he was sweet on me and where normally my red alert signal would be going off, I felt that he was sincere.
We had our first date and it was wonderful, ended the night with a great kiss and talked about future plans and then the calls got sporadic and the texts became brief with things said like, you are an amazing woman, you are so sweet, and my favorite... You are obviously a wonderful person and very special.
My friends said he was a player and one friend said, Honey he's just not into you, cut your losses. I expect to hear that coming from most of you too.
My question really is, Men if you actually like a woman as a person but not necessarily as a romantic partner, how do you let them down? I've had men never text me back, that's a clear signal that they aren't into you... But this one has me stumped.

I am not very average-guyish, and I don't send women I'm not into texts like that. I'd say things like "you'd make a great friend", "I feel like we can talk", etc. and try not to sound romantic at all.
I feel like he's possibly trying to back off to not seem so clingy. Or he has interpreted some of the things you say or do as uninterested.
Make plans with him and see how he behaves in person.0
