Question - (31 July 2010) 2 Answers - (Newest, 31 July 2010)
A female United Kingdom age 41-50, anonymous writes:

A couple of months ago I met a guy on the internet. We texed for a few days and then met for a drink. In person I found him physically attractive but he seemed a bit shy. After the date he carried on texting every day (hes funnier in his texts) and then a week or so later we met up again. After this date he carried on texting and we spoke on the phone on one occasion. We met up for a third time and had another nice date a couple of days ago and since this date hes texed daily again. The problem is the relationship doesnt seem to be moving.

The dates are nice and he always texts every day but I think by now he should be ringing to talk rather than texting or we should be seeing each other more than every few weeks. The last date we had he did go in for a quick kiss before we left but as we were on a busy street I just gave him a quick peck. I'm not sure whether he just sees this as some casual textual thing or whether he is genuinely interested. I think if he liked me he would be ringing me more rather then just texting and he would be coming to see me more often? he does live about an hour away so he not just round the corner.

I do feel i am starting to rely on his texts now and i'm kind of falling for him so i think i need to get out quick if this is going nowhere and i am just wasting my time. what do you think??

Why don't you tell him how you feel before calling it a day? Ask him what he wants from your relationship. Guys aren't psychic. Half the time they really don't have a clue how we feel or what we are thinking. You need to communicate properly with him in order to find out where you stand.

there's only one way you can get the answers you need and want to know you said it yourself he's shy mayb something has happened to him that has made him very shy and nervous about moving to quick.

I am a shy guy myself and texting is an easy way to talk to someone if u have low confidents in yourself we all have a past and maybe that's what's stopping him realy opening up so give him help with it just one night sit there and talk with him text if that's what makes him more open and tell him where you are and how you feel and see if he wants this to move on like you

good look
