I met this guy a month ago and we went on our first date on Valentine's and it went really well. He's texted me several times since and has said he had a really good time. But as time's gone on, I've felt less and less sure. I mean its been a couple days now and he's not asked me out again. I'm really worried for some reason that he's leading me on and that he's just hoping for someone better to come along. I went through a mess break up with my ex and just really don't want to get hurt again. I don't realy know what to do. I know I'm getting ahead of myself. But everytime he texts I just don't feel like there's much point cus I'll just get hurt. Am I just being ridiculous?

I will go out on a limb here and say that you are not ready to jump back into the dating game just yet.
You need to allow yourself ample time to recover from the pain that a break up inflicts. It is not fair on the person you are dating if you bring with you the demons from your past relationship. It is hard enough meeting someone new, forming a connection and laying the foundations of a new relationship without the added baggage of the past being hauled into proceedings.
A person that has laid their ghosts to rest from a previous relationship would not be asking the question you are asking and so perhaps it is wise for you to either back away from proceeding further or if you are adamant to press ahead that you do so at a pace that is comfortable with you.0
