Well I "met" someone in one of those dating sights. Yesterday I went on a date.

It went great! Tons of chemistry, we were supposed to go for just ice cream and we ended up having dinner.

He was so sweet so into me, so into "us" and a future and all, made me feel beautiful, sexy, smart.

So what's the problem?

I love my new independence MORE than being part of a couple again - at least for now!

There were some red flags,my age, and never married? ummmm, too into me, on first date?

I tend to over analyse things too... so I just don't know how to proceed, any ideas?

Do I see where it takes me? or do I listen to those red flags? and let him go now - before it gets complicated?

Very gently here, but you aren't in a couple. You've had one date.

The purpose of a first date is to decide whether you want a second date.

Amazonia hit the nail on the head. Talking about a "future" on the first date would freak me out.

It sounds like maybe he attaches too quickly? How did he seem prior to the date? Have you heard from him since?

I agree with Ama and Lies...

Wowy, zowy....he didn't pull out a ring did he?

In a seriousness, it was just a date. He probably is multidating(like you) and wanted you to feel special. Although, if you were talking about a future on the first date, maybe he is completely insecure and that's a red flag to me.

Years ago after the breakup of my first marriage, I dated too soon. The first guy I met "rushed me" I was too inexperienced to see the red flags. Love was mentioned etc. Then after a couple of months, poof. I learned a valuable lesson. If they can fall in love that fast, they can fall out of love just as fast. It was one of the best lessons I learned, and even going through this infidelity mess, it helps me think straight.

Thank you everyone, Yes you guys are correct, it was just a date. and I do tend to over think and analyze things - but I think this time I gotta go with my gutt, just doesn't feel right.

But he freaked me out, the way he was so into me on first date, grabbing and wanting to kiss me out in public. I mean I am a very touchy feely person, but on the first date, in public? I am not even officially divorced - so that was going through my mind!!!

Texted me after I got home, and the next day, that he "could really see us together forever" that he "was never that comfortable with anyone EVER" etc.

Next day text me a couple more times, "Hi Babe, when can I see you?" and the sort...

The purpose of a first date is to decide whether you want a second date.

^^^ No I don't want second date, we definitely had chemistry, but I'm not ready for his intensity, and trust me, it was going to be intense, but I was just going to end up hurt again - I don't need that!

So I put a stop to it with him, and deleted my profile on the dating site. And let God handle it!

The "see us together forever" is yes, a red flag, and quite creepy.

You don't need to pull the plug though just because of one weirdo!

Yikes! I think that guy should have just asked you out on a second date instead of marrying you in his head! Good grief.

So now you're the poofer. I agree you don't need to delete your profile just because of one over eager beaver. If you want to date, try it again! But I'm thinking maybe waiting until you are divorced wouldn't be a bad idea.

Definitely too fast on the familiarity level for a first date....I think you are right to heed the red flags on this one.

But it is good on the experience level for the future.

After learning quite a bit about personality disorders, that behavior would have me running for the hills.

But PD or not it's too fast and very creepy. Like someone else said, a person that falls in "love" that fast likely falls out of it just as quickly.
