I’m missing out the second man, because he is the one I have more to say about. Much more.
Number three and i matched and I was excited: my age, attractive, single, no kids…
He is funny. He is lively and cheeky and we have a lot of fun.
In the first weekend, he was willing to drive the 40 minutes to meet me. This would have been my first date and whilst it was appealing, I just wasn’t ready. I felt like I hadn’t spoken to him enough.
For nearly two weeks, messages have been pretty much daily and although there have been other times when he had suggested to come down, often at late notice, I’ve realised that he is as nervous as I am because it never happens.
Slowly, the messaging is getting further apart. It’s kind of sad because I quite liked him and think meeting him would be a lot of fun.
What have I learned from him?
I’m not the only one who gets nervous.
Being on a dating app doesn’t mean that someone is ready to physically date – which is amazing to me.
Like the First, this man has been a real confidence boost. His communications have been friendly, caring and flirty. Sure, a little part of me is disappointed we have not met and probably won’t but his texts have helped me balance my emotions and excitement for others.
While he is still messaging me, I will message back. But I’m not holding out for any more than that, and that’s OK.
