A guy I’m dating is ignoring my texts — should I move on or demand answers?

February 10, 2019 0 By Today news

DEAR DEIDRE: A GUY I’ve been dating has ignored all my texts for a week. Do I demand answers about why he’s disappeared or leave it and move on?

I have known him for years and he’s never had a serious relationship. He is 45, I am 40. My long-term relationship ended not long ago and he seemed the perfect guy for some fun dating.

We have been to the cinema, out for meals and to the theatre for my birthday a couple of weeks ago.

We slept together last week, not for the first time, and everything seemed to be perfectly OK.

He even said he saw us as being exclusive now and he wanted to go on more dates.

He texted the following day but since then he’s gone silent on me even though he’s posting on social media.

DEIDRE SAYS: He’s got cold feet after showing some commitment on your last date. It’s not just coincidence that he’s never had a serious relationship.

He’s helped you move on from your ex but if he is running scared of serious commitment any relationship with him would be on his uncertain terms.

Don’t waste more angst trying to work out what’s going on for him.

My e-leaflet on Moving On can help you.
