I received this text from a 35 year old female I have been dating for almost 4 months there are no EXs in the picture and she is a good girl-there is no other man in the picture too. She has never been in a relationship before and has zero experience with them. I haven't dated in around four years my last ex did a number on me. I am rusty at this dating thing.
I gave her 2.5 weeks with no contact. We haven't talked and I won't call her no matter how much I want to. After this happened I have been going out with my friends , went boating, planned a vacation out of state, and am keeping myself busy. I told her that I wasn't going to wait around for her when we lasted talked. I have also turned my online dating profiles back on, and I have started talking to a few women ( my friends also want to set me up with other women) . I will definitely not go out on a date until after the 2.5 weeks is up. I truly feel bad about this, but I am preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. Should I cut my losses and start trying to move on? Is what I am doing wrong? What are your thoughts on this?
The text I received:
I am sorry, but I feel like I need to take a break for awhile. You are honestly the nicest guy, a gentleman to the 'T'. I want to feel things with you, but I am just not. I find myself getting anxiety before we get together and I am not sure why. I feel if I had time to try to sort my feelings out, that would be good. If you are angry, I understand, and if I am hurting you, I am very sorry. I promise that you have done nothing wrong. I just want to feel more, but I am not there. I am sorry I am a coward and doing this over a text.

it seems like she does care, really. but it also looks as if the attraction between you two aren't on the same page, which is why she said what she said.
don't wait for her, it ain't gonna happen by you waiting and continually being there for her. you gotta move on and she has to figure it out for herself.1
