I have been on three dates with a guy. Before the third date, I rejected him for 2 weeks because I had categorized him as a player, due to "red flags" - and I tried to forget him. He must have asked me out at least 4-5 times. He once took 26 hours to reply to a text, where I didn't ask a question, but a reply was implied. I always texted back quickly. Another night again, he took 2 hours to write back, while I saw him online on the dating app many times during that time. He definitely wasn't busy. We don't talk much in between dates, but he's eager to see me so I assume he's interested. I have cancelled on him a few times and told him I don't think we're looking for the same thing, and he's said to me that he really likes me, but he's not gonna "force" anything and he takes things as they come. And that he's obviously very attracted to me. If he wants to see me often and is a huge gentleman when we are together, why does he take FOREVER to text me back? By the way, I've initiated the texting once. He initiated basically all of them. I can't help but feel he's playing games.

Maybe he doesn't want to come across overly keen, he's probably trying to play it cool. Or, he could just be a really lazy texter! A lot of people read a text, and intend to reply quickly but then get busy doing other things and eventually you realise you never actually typed out your reply... I do that a lot.
If he's still dating you and initiating conversation he's still interested, just a bit lazy with texting :P which isn't always a bad thing either some people prefer face-to-face contact over messaging a lot0
