I just had a first date with a guy I met online. We talked and had beers for 31/2 hours. I thought that was a good sign that he stayed that long. We had a good flow of conversation and he payed for the bill and even wanted to stay to talk for a while. Then he hugged me to my car and said something I forget exactly but to text him sometime and we could arrange something. I got home and said thanks for the drinks I had a really good time with you. He replied good I'm glad to hear. I was hoping for him to say I did to or something. Is this his way of letting me know he didint have a good time or am I reading too much into it and he could still be interested.

There's always that question in the back of your mind, did things really go well? I'm not going to just say yes or no. So lets analyse the behavior. You meet him from online, which is very strenuous on a lot of people to meet someone from practically thin air, yet he decided to meet you. Then, rather than just throwing down one beer and thanking you for meeting him, he stuck around for almost four hours. I value my time, and who I spend it with, extremely well. I barely like to spend more than a few hours with family members or people I like. This is a very good sign that he is defiantly interested. Then, in a very gentlemanly fashion, he payed the bill. I take it he didn't make a big deal about it since you didn't reference this behavior. He just did it and was happy to. This isn't even a real first date, this is just a first meeting, and he paid. Then he gave you a hug. Now, I want you to look carefully at the fact that he did give you a hug. Not a handshake which says (It was ok to meet you) nor did he try to kiss you (because he is more respectful than that). He hugged you, to break the touch barrier and show you he was interested. Then you went home and texted him. I can't emphasis how much guys hate texting. Most guys. And more to the point, he texted you back. If he was not interested, he would ditch your number then and there. But not only did he text you back, he didn't make it into something that it isn't, a big deal. He's just trying to play it cool for now and not overwhelm you. I'm certain that he would have loved to spend more time with you, or even talk to you on the phone, but you need to let love take it's course. And great love takes time. So now I will answer. Sorry for making you read so much by the way. Yes, he did have a good time and is very much interested in you. And you are reading into it too much, but that isn't a good thing as long as you don't do anything crazy when overthinking. It sounds like you guys should be going out again, soon I suspect.0
