Third Time Lucky?

So I’ve met this guy – quite randomly yet we exchanged numbers and went on a first date… which was three weeks ago. He said that he wanted to see me again and texted me afterwards to say that he had a great night. I replied the next day to say that I had a good time as well and that we should do it again. However, since then we’ve both been busy and we haven’t been able to catch up again, plus we’re both awkward texters so its been difficult to keep the momentum going. Should I try one more time to see him or just cut it loose?

    [From an outsider’s perspective, I would say, let it go. But I’m guessing that’s not the answer you’re looking for. Look, I really see no problem with texting him again. Just don’t invest too much, you know? It could be that this next text will open the door to the relationship you’ve been dreaming of…or…it won’t. He could be shy/busy/awkward or he might not be that into it. If one more text will help you see which it is, then go for it. Good luck!

    [I agree with Missy.

    After one date you aren’t invested that much into the guy. Will your life be “empty” without him? It’s not going to hurt sending him another text, but only if you would sincerely like to go out on another date with him; even if it’s to see if there’s the chance of a spark or not.

    If you find yourself dreading the whole process of having to deal with texting, and planning a date, and so on…then it’s probably not worth your time. If you’re not excited about it (even in the least) it’ll show and odds are nothing would blossom then.

    Good luck with either option you choose.

    [Saying “we should do it again” is different from actually setting up a next date. I would not give up on this unless or until you actually pick a date and time to meet up again, and then you get blown off or stood up. If it were me and I thought the person was worth pursuing another date with, I would try to actually set up another date, with specifics, a time, a place, to gauge the enthusiasm of that response and decide how to proceed from there.
