I recently dumped a guy I had been dating for 2 months as it seemed he was playing mind games with me, and only wanted to see me when it was convenient for him. I met him online and specifically noted in my profile I was not interested in any game playing. I made it clear I was looking for a long-term monogamous relationship.
I’m 53 and he’s 55. When he sent a smile/flirt, I wrote him back even though he’s not normally the type of guy I would even go for. I thought I would step outside my comfort zone.
We would have a great date one night, and the next night he would act very cold. In person, he’d say things like, “I really like you a lot”, “I enjoy your company, we have fun together”, and “You’re really easy to talk to, it makes it very easy for me to buy you a gift”. He mentioned things like how “hot” I made him, etc. Then I wouldn’t hear from him for 4 or 5 days and most of the time in between, I was reaching out to him via text or phone.
