My friend has met this guy he is good looking and charming. She has spent time with him at his place. He has not asked her out on a date as yet, says he is interested in her and wants to get to know her better. But does not text very regularly and does not reply to her texts for hours. Is she wasting her time, is he keeping his options open thats what i think!

It’s early days. Maybe he is cheap and doesn’t want to spend money? She should suggest doing something out of the house that’s free. Hope she waiting tdtd

She is on the back burner. If he wants to get to know her - going out on a date is the best way to start but he is stalling. Sounds like a non starter to me.

Maybe he is keeping his options open but no reason why your friend can't keep hers open too.

Thats what I think he is keeping her on the back burner. I believe that he knows that she likes him a lot and his is using this to his advantage. My friend is not very confident.

This describes me and about 2 dozen people I know. Is not replying to text messages instantly seriously used as a yardstick? Otherwise, it sounds as though they're just two people starting to get to know each other.

Has she asked him out on a date?

It wouldn’t be for me and I wouldn’t like it if it was my friend. Not the lack of texts so much as the not going anywhere ever.

IF ONE DOES NOT WANT TO BE CONTACTED THEN DONT GIVE YOUR MOBILE NUMBER OUT!! PERSONALLY I THINK IT IS RUDE THAT IF SOMEONE TAKES THE TIME TO TEXT YOU SURELY ITS POLITE TO RESPOND!

BUT WHY DO YOU NEED TO RESPOND IMMEDIATELY? I’m not a slave to my phone, sometimes I like to give attention to things that are happening IRL.

No wonder car accidents due to driver inattention are on the rise Hmm

Why are you shouting 😂. You said he doesn’t reply immediately not that he was ignoring messages completely 🤷🏻‍♀️
