After a couple more texts he said we could organize something. I said jokingly that I had chased him enough and it was his turn. I get the hint. OK talk soon, take care. I assumed he would contact me or am I supposed to contact him? Dear Day, I know you feel confused so let me clear this up quickly for you.
His texting means nothing. Right there that tells you something about his interest level. After sending it, he certainly would have asked you out if he was interested. However, he just commented that you had courage for asking.
Then you told him you were done chasing him. Still nothing on his part. Six days have gone by without a peep so what does that tell you? But neither one indicates he actually wants to go on dates or is interested in something more. Only one thing lets you know a man is interested — when he consistently asks you out on weekly dates.
Your best bet is to meet men online, the apps or out and about and flirt with them. Hugs, Bp. As a 40 year old man I would give the following advice, particularly if looking to date educated and smart men: 1. the idea is to get to know him, not grill into a crisp. This is really serious: Get into the habit and mind frame of asking the man out on a date and partake together in planning it.
Do not expect him to plan the date alone, though he might still do that. Plan stuff yourself, at about the same rate he does, as it comes. It may give the impression that you are difficult, bratty, and selfish. This is the 1 reason I or many other men write a woman off as relationship material. Be excellent. Know your stuff and provoke him into discussion and debate.
Expect to be challenged back and demonstrate how smart you are. Smart men absolutely adore women who do this! Unless you are looking like a 25 yo model this will cripple your relationship prospects.
Go dutch on everything. A good man how cares will do all sorts of things to please you, and you should reciprocate. Best of luck!! I love the way Debbie changed the dynamics in her email to Bill.
What if Debbie had sent that email and he never replied to it at all……. Or better yet……Things have been very busy at work and we can catch up when things slow down for me. How should she respond to that? Welp, Lorraine, then Debbie should just move on.
Personally I strongly disagree. Women naturally are caregivers and planners. Men often need to develop those skills as they mature and become more mindful. After settling into a real relationship, I can see being more involved together making plans and splitting costs, but not initially.
Just need to remember that with more mature, confident, accomplished men they are a little different. They will definitely want to show up and step up if they are interested, but they also need something back. So we should also show them, even early on, that we are interested and also willing to give. Believe me, there are a lot of women out there just looking to be taken care of while giving nothing back. And you are SO welcome!
Thanks for letting me know that my work is helping you. I really do love to hear that! I love the advice for women to ask for what they want! This kinda scares me Bobbi. The only time this dude took this woman out on a real date was when he was pretty much confronted.
Take that as a sign and instead of waiting around obsessing over his next move, use your time to reflect on your personal journey. What areas of your life need some focus?
Some healing? Some work? What goals should you be working toward? Take some time to do some of this work in your own life. Because healthy people will always make for healthy relationships. Sometimes timing can be a matter of perspective. I remember the months of developing a friendship with my husband, wondering when would be the right time to take the next step and start dating.
Looking back, his idea of the right time, and my idea of the right time were totally different. There were so many things that could have gone wrong had the timing been anything other than what it was.
I think what it comes down to is that the only One who really knows what good timing means, is the inventor of time Himself. Seek to connect with God, to know His heart, and ask Him to lead both you and your certain interest to just the right time in just the right way. God is good and opening the doors for things that are right, and closing them hard for things that are not. Above all else single ladies , more than trusting a man to do the right thing at the right time…trust God to lead and guide your life and the life of your future spouse in exactly the way that He sees best.
After all, He is the Master Matchmaker.
By Ronnie Ann Ryan — Updated on May 28, Are you constantly telling your friends, "He texts me, but he doesn't ask me out"? Ah, the modern world of dating. If you're wondering what to do when a man constantly messages you but isn't asking you out on a real date, look no further.
As a dating coach for women, I get loads of emails from women who are confused by the mixed signals men send, especially about texting. For example, you meet a guy online who sends daily texts but never asks you out.
Or maybe you've had one date with a guy that went really well. RELATED: What It Means If A Guy Texts Every Day But Doesn't Call. The examples above present two separate issues. While texting can be a lot of fun, to build a true relationship you need to spend quality time with a new man. Texting is a supplement to your other communication options, but it simply cannot replace those romantic face-to-face visits.
Let's say you connect with an interesting man online. You go from emailing to texting with some very fun exchanges. The conversation is creative, funny, and exciting. Days go by — sometimes weeks. He talks about getting together, but he never actually asks you out. This is a problem. Texting and talking on the phone without meeting and dating are just words and nothing more.
Some men enjoy these interactions and get their fill of feminine energy without ever needing to date you. Some men build a stable of texting buddies to boost their egos. Others try to keep lots of women on the line while they decide if they want to meet any of them. Don't fall into this trap. If he doesn't ask to talk on the phone and then meet you within 10 days, you have a couple of choices: You can stop answering his texts and move on.
Or you can suggest talking on the phone and then meeting to see if there's chemistry. This is the only time I agree with a woman asking a man out, but your first date isn't a real date. It's more like a meeting to see if there will be a first date as you check each other out. So no harm done about taking over the lead, because you can cut to the chase and figure out guys who are just texters and aren't serious.

This is a man who has decided you aren't the one for him. Again, you probably feed his ego, so he keeps up the flirting and texting because it makes him feel good. The problem is that you're investing your precious time in a man who has no plans to date you. The best thing to do is to stop responding to his texts or calls. It's your job to weed out the men who aren't serious to see who has the potential for long-term love.
One thing I know for sure is that when a man is genuinely interested in you, he will ask you out. He'll want to see you. No matter what he has going on, he will fit you into his schedule. Recognize that these texts are meaningless and move on to find a man who wants to see your beautiful face in person.
