What I sent was "Hey, How's it going?" and he said "Just busy as fuck at work, You?"... I have no idea how to respond to that. He sounds mad that I texted him. I don't want to bug him, so I haven't replied, and I don't know if I should or not. Ugh... I hate dating! Help!

The thing is, it can either be an excuse or it can be absolutely true. Getting to know someone new takes up a lot if energy and if he has been busy with work, he might not have found enough energy to do so. He might be the type to not text mindless babbling and wants to be fully contracted when texting. But that's also an easy excuse people use when they are loosing interest. You'll only know after he either finds the time or just cuts you out. For starters I'd reply to the message normally telling him how you are doing. If he feels like continuing the conversation, it might be a good sign, but if he leaves it at that, you will have to wait and see.

Welcome in the world of online dating! You must understand that you are only one woman amongst many, same as guys are not alone with one girl. It's the character of this medium that you have problems coping with. Imagine you are in a crowd of girls around one guy. In this situation You are a timeslot. Not more than that. If he decides to spend more time with another girl, you won't hear from him until he is done with her and so forth.
