So I met this guy at happy hour a month ago. Gave him my number.
We started texting pretty regularly. Very flirty on his part.
We keep tryimg to arrange to meet again. One weekend he is out of town at his brother's but we still text.
He texts a couple of times about wanting to see me but I have my kids.
Finally we arrange to meet at another happy hour. He has friends in town and I have plans after but he comes over to the bar I am at and we hang out for a couple of hours.
He walks me to my car. We kiss a little. He later texts to make sure I made itt home ok,
Lots more texting. Then next weekend he goes MIA over text from Friday till Sunday evening when he expresses regret that he was too busy to get together. Though we did not have any plans. He was just saying he wished that we could have.
This past week, we text, I mention a happy hour on Thursday. He says he is going out of town that night for rest of the weekend. Later from the happy hour I send him a picture of a drink the bartender made for me. He doesn't respond.
I hear nothing until today at 5 when he comments on the photo. Then corrects himself from saying it "looked" good to "looks" good. Not sure why he made a point to sound like he was just now seeing it?
Obviously this guy owes me nothing. I wonder if there is an out of town girl who thinks he is being exclusive to her?
I know we have hardly gone out and I don't know if I would really even date him. He is much younger than I so any dating would just be for fun.
But I still feel a little slighted by his not engaging for a few days and then just trying to resume the convo like time never passed.
I am not really invested enough to even ask him about it and of course he is free to see whomever he likes. I have gone out with two other guys myself since I met him.
I guess I am just looking for input on how this whole think works and if I should feel slighted or is this just the way multi-dating works?
