We’ve been conversing about different meaningful subjects, he asked me to talk about them, so it’s not as if I’m beating him over the head with my thoughts.And yet I think I may have overdone it as I haven’t heard from him in nearly a week, though he’s been on the site.I feel like I did something and I can’t figure out what it is.The last email I sent to him was nearly a week ago, it was rather long (several paragraphs, I was answering all his questions, offering thoughts and new questions, like in a real conversation) and included a couple compliments to him which I had not done before though he was offering them to me.I don’t understand why he would have meaningful conversations with me, even mention he might want to meet, etc. I’m going to try to keep as much as my original reply to this reader in this article however I wanted to point something out: this situation can happen to anyone and it is not uncommon.In this article, I’ll discuss the topic in a way specific to her situation but the advice still can apply to anyone, even if your details differ.
What can you recommend I might say/do to regain his interest or just confirm that he’s still interested without seeming desperate? I’d at least like to have some closure if he doesn’t want to talk to me anymore.You’ve been sending emails back and forth after meeting using an online dating service. The emails are getting more in-depth, you’re sharing more about each other and a first date seems all but certain. We were emailing each other every other day, and he expressed clear interest in me, with compliments, longish engaged emails, even a hint already in the last one he sent that he might want to meet (we live far apart this would be no small feat). I have been corresponding with someone on a dating site for a couple weeks.” I would recommend a simple, pleasant email asking how he’s been.Something along these lines would work fine: Hi So-and-so, How have you been doing? (Insert something here discussing some part of your life that you’ve discussed with him in the past that you can give an update on). And honestly, you could send an email like this after a few days. I understand not wanting to come off as obsessive or desperate but honestly an email after a few days is neither of these things.Insulating Yourself from this Situation I don’t have any secret on preventing this situation from happening.
