Hello, I'm new. I just need someone to bounce this off. I have been seeing a guy for about 3 months. We seem to meet once or twice a week but mostly if his other plans fall through. I don't think he is doing it deliberately and he is certainly not a player. It's my birthday early next week and I've asked whether we are going to meet this weekend. He said he wants to catch up with one of his friends but if he is busy then we can do something. Should I say something or am I expecting too much too soon?

He’s sounds like a totally unreliable nightmare. Are you really happy being someone else’s back up plan?

TheQueenOfWands Fri 12-Jan-18 18:09:43

He'll only see you if his other mate cancels?

He's dick. Ditch him.

BorgQueenie Fri 12-Jan-18 18:09:53

He's just not that into you
Or has a girlfriend
Dump him

Whatshallidonowpeople Fri 12-Jan-18 18:10:17

No, I'm not. But I really don't think he realises

aaaaargghhhhelpme Fri 12-Jan-18 18:11:03

He's not that into you. Sorry. youre his plan b

Don't waste your time planning things around him. He just doesn't sound too bothered.

Have a brilliant birthday with your friends flowers

I don't think I should be his top priority after 3 months but I also don't want to come across as a nutter.

PurpleDaisies Fri 12-Jan-18 18:12:09

confused

He is just making use of you - that cannot possibly be what you want. It is in your power to do something about it.

aaaaargghhhhelpme Fri 12-Jan-18 18:13:13

He can't make time for you on your birthday?! Seriously. You deserve more than that.

Snowysky20009 Fri 12-Jan-18 18:14:21

As they say 'He's just not that into you' sorry. I would move on.

mrsharrison Fri 12-Jan-18 18:16:07

Text him this isn't working for you. Short n sweet, no explanations. Dignified and not nutty. Then go have a good night out with your friends.

Whatshallidonowpeople Fri 12-Jan-18 18:48:13

Thanks guys, I knew I could count on you. I challenged him on it, he's very apologetic and we are now going out for my birthday...of course that is after his mate already has plans but still. I'll monitor and if he still does it then it's curtains for him.

You’re keener than he is. If that bothers you then bin him. If you’re happy with the arrangement then don’t, but you deserve better and if you’re looking for a serious relationship i don’t think this is it, sorry

Angrybird345 Fri 12-Jan-18 18:59:06

Dump him now!!!

CremeFresh Fri 12-Jan-18 18:59:37

Don't make someone your priority when to them you are just an option.

This.

Whatshallidonowpeople Fri 12-Jan-18 19:05:02

Possibly. It is irritating me now, so if it happens again it's over. I genuinely think he is just out of dating practice

aaaaargghhhhelpme Fri 12-Jan-18 19:21:36

He's not out of dating practice

He's just not that bothered. The first few months should be exciting. There's a reason friends roll their eyes with mock exasperation when someone gets a new partner and they're not seen for a while.

If it's your birthday and you're having to ask him if he wants to do something AND he says, well if my mate isn't busy I suppose you're next in the queue, this is not someone in the throes of first passion. He's not even trying to put on a good impression.

You deserve better

Karigan1 Fri 12-Jan-18 19:26:01

It’s your birthday. He should at least make an effort. Dump him.

Huntinginthedark Fri 12-Jan-18 19:29:46

3 months?!?
Yes I would seriously fucking expect better than that
What are you? A stop gap in case he's bored if his mates aren't around

Half an hour before you're due to meet him, say your friend had a last min cancellation so she's free and you're going to hang out with her.
Fuck that with bells on

RoseGoldEagle Fri 12-Jan-18 23:48:55

If he's like this in the first three months it's not a great sign. You want someone who's thinking 'I can't wait to see Whatshallwedonow again' not someone who's just fitting you in when they've nothing better to do. It's so hard when it's someone you like, but you deserve someone that is going to make you a priority. That is not being 'crazy' or expecting too much, it's naturally what people who really like each other do. It's nothing to do with being out of practise, if he really liked you he'd be making the effort to see you, he wouldn't need to be reminded.

"Half an hour before you're due to meet him, say your friend had a last min cancellation so she's free and you're going to hang out with her."

This ^^ is very tempting.

DoubleAces Fri 12-Jan-18 23:54:36

I started dating my now wife 3 months before her birthday. Trust me I was all over it planning dinner and gifts and a wonderful weekend.

This dude isn't your soulmate I'm afraid.

mummmy2017 Sat 13-Jan-18 00:10:34

Your too available, so you have no value to him.

Back off , call him as said and tell him as you are only his 2nd choice of the night, you know he won't mind if you cancel as you had a better offer of a girls night out with your bestie's they did it as a surprise.

He needs to want to see you, so you come first, always being 2nd best sucks, as he thinks of you right now as his comfy P'Js there when nothing exciting is happening.

With my ex he was around all the time, chased me, any spare time he has was spent with me. and I used to say lets go see your mates as I didn't want him to lose contact with them...

Because you deserve so much more than having to chase this man, I think your better to drop him now, as he doesn't love you,
