I met a guy online. We exchanged messages for a month before officially meeting this week.
We went for a drink followed by dinner. Chatted for three hours. When he asked me for another drink after dinner, I didn't go because it was late.
He texted me every day and asked me for a drink two days after we met for the first time. I couldn't go that day. That night, he was a bit drunk and texted me asking what rules I had and blah blah blah. I was trying to be honest so I told him I thought he's cute and would like to go out with him. He said he was so happy and called me up to say good night and stuff. Then I asked him whether he wanted to have a drink the next day. He said ok. But he texted me the next day saying he couldn't come due to work.
I thought he would ask me out during weekend but he didn't. Instead, he asked me to go out again next week on a weekday.
I think things changed after I told him I'm willing to go out with him.
What should I do to take "control" again to avoid being played I guess?

Overthinking mostly. Also, trying to take "control" of a relationship is a very good way of ending up played or lonely. If thats when you can go out, so be it. Don't put pressure on him to conform to your ways and schedule, doing that will only push him away.0
