Immediately afterwards he messaged me saying it was "good to meet and chat". We then continued to message each other late into the night. This messaging has been going on and off for about 4 days since, and there's been no mention of a second meet/date. Although I've hinted a few times at at meeting in future, he hasn't tried to lock down a day.
My question is - is he actually interested in persuing this, or did he just think 'nah' when we met and wants to keep me on the back-burner? Or worse, as a friend? Why would he keep talking to me if he doesn't want to ask me out?
