Call me dating
In this case, a man was just being polite by asking for your number.
Dating Advice: Find out what he’s really thinking during your first few dates.
And luckily, if you're into her, there are easy things you can do to remedy the situation and hopefully take the dating relationship back to awesome. Don't tell her amazing things like you see her as the mother of your children or the woman you'd want to spend your life with, or share all your deepest, darkest secrets and fears with her and then disappear for a few days -- whether by not contacting her or not making plans to see her.
It boils down to this: we, as women want to feel safe; meaning, we want to feel that we can trust the guy we're seeing -- trust that he's telling us the truth, trust that he's going to be there (literally and emotionally), and trust that we are special to him. Don't flatter her with words and not follow it up with action.
He was interested in you at first, but something happened along the way to change his mind about you.
Maybe he sensed some anxiety from you that creeped him out. Unfortunately, when it does, women often fill their heads with all kinds of wild stories that only make them feel bad about themselves.
But I don't think it's fair for a woman to get upset with a man for not doing something she didn't ask him to do, regardless of how simple or small she thinks it is. This behavior is very confusing to us and we will most likely react accordingly.
However, once a woman has expressed to a man that there are certain things she'd like him to do -- then if he doesn't do them, women need to take a look at that and probably move on... So, gentlemen, these are three things the woman you're dating wants you to do: 1) Pursue her. 3) In social media -- like in life -- make sure it's clear she's your favorite.
And, men, when a woman feels safe with you, she will open her heart and give you that amazing care, sex, and support that only a woman can give... (Side note: if you've been dating a woman for a while and wonder why you still haven't slept together, it may be because she doesn't trust these things about you yet.) Many women would say that the three things listed below are givens and that men should know to do them. It is one of the biggest problems between men and women; some women want men to read their minds and just know to do things. I totally get that many guys mean these wonderful words in the moment, but I'd suggest if you want to avoid drama, you start taking some breaths before you make what sound like promises and plans for the future. Will you mean it an hour from now, a day from now, a week from now? Because this -- inconsistency -- is the main arena in which she loses trust in you.
I've had men read my stuff and ask me when I was going to write something for them.
This is a particular scenario I get asked about a lot, so, gentlemen, without further ado....
Men often have a hard time sharing the truth about their feelings with women they've just met. Dating advice: Ask in a playful way, "I'm curious since you're kinda cute—are you dating anyone interesting right now? If you wait and wonder, you'll end up wasting your own time and energy.
If a man really likes you, but he is more interested in a casual encounter and senses you're not that kind of girl, he'll move on—partially out of respect for you (or his own selfish desires). Not calling you back was his way of letting you know where he’s at without having to say it directly.
