You match on Tinder, Happn, or Bumble and — bam! — the connection is hot! You can’t wait to meet. Your banter and messages are fun, playful, and interesting. The two of you cannot stop chatting away and you are starting to feel positive about this potential partner. It’s rare that it happens considering online dating and dating apps are a bit of a grind in which you sample a bunch of people but end up enjoying only a small fraction of the interactions you have with anyone. So this person is finally piquing your interest.
When is it time to get drinks or coffee? Now! But somehow, you still haven’t met this person yet . . .
1. Constant Texting but Never Direct Plans
The two of you say good morning and good night to each other, but there’s never a concrete plan to go out. You two never miss a day of chatting, but this person hasn’t mentioned a time to see you.
2. Your Requests Are Met With Excuses
You give in and ask the person to make a date, and your request is met with a bunch of excuses. Somehow this match always has work, friends to see, a sick family member, or “isn’t sure” of his/her schedule.
