Nothing is wrong, he is just getting back into a more normal rhythm. When I really like a girl, I will text her a lot throughout the day because I am always thinking about her. And then it becomes a problem because the girl wants you to keep texting as much as you did a t the beginning, which makes the guy want to do it even less! While the girl might be getting all upset and wondering if something she said turned him off, the guy is just going about his day and focusing on something else and is completely unaware of the mayhem he has incited within her.
Leave him. This is an area that trips a lot of women up. Sometimes he initiates texts, sometimes you go days without hearing from him. Sometimes he replies to your texts right away, other times it takes hours or days or maybe even weeks. You are so confused. Does he like me or not?
Well, he likes you sort of. Trust me, I know how painful that is.

You want to hold onto the signs that he does like you, and sure, you can find plenty. And if a guy likes a girl and she texts him, he will feel excited and will want to text her back. People get busy. People go into another room while their phone is charging. People see a text and wait until they have a few minutes before responding. You have to look at everything in context.
When has prematurely panicking ever taken you down a good path? Also, do not text him a million times to follow up. Doing this will just make you look crazy and pathetic. Just do nothing.

At the heart of why girls get into such a tizzy over the whole texting issue is fear. When we have a fear or belief within us, our psyche will try to find proof to back up how we feel, no matter how destructive that thought is. We all navigate through the world with filter systems that take in the information we deem relevant and discard everything else. For instance, if you think no one likes you, you will hone in on people not being nice to you and will ignore all the proofs that people do like you.
I think you get the point. The fact is, we create our own stories and if we let those negative stories stick to the point where we actually start believing them as truth, we also create our own realities, a reality that brings our biggest fears to life. You were luke-warm, there was nothing at stake … and if you heard from him, cool … if not then whatever.
Trust me, I know how hard it is to have this mentality with the guys you actually do like, but what I want you to see is how much of an impact the thoughts we allow into our minds can have. Above all, stop worrying about it so much! Guys have no idea what a big deal this is to women. Most guys are shocked when I tell them how many questions I get about this topic. If his lack of a response causes you to feel physically sick with fear and worry, then these feelings are coming from you.
No amount of texts from him is going to solve this, you need to dig deep and get to the root of the issue on your own. Texting is not a barometer for the relationship. Focus more on the quality of the time you spend together as opposed to the quantity of texts exchanged each day.
Just focus on yourself and being in a strong emotionally healthy place. Focus on your level of confidence and feelings of worth.
Focus on controlling your thoughts and stopping them from spiraling into the obsession zone. Focus on the things that are within your control you and your thoughts as opposed to things that are outside of your control him and how he feels.
Guys can sense the emotion behind a text. From a place of needing him to respond a certain way in order to feel good about yourself, as opposed to reaching out to him out of desire or just wanting to because you like him. The "research" of this article seems pretty weak and uses a bad example. She was active for a week or less? Meanwhile, the guy had been active for months. I tried online dating for a couple of years.
I spent time writing my profile, adding pictures and trying to accurately list hobbies, etc. I wrote crafted messages, carefully read profiles and was always respectful. I did not write to women who said "don't write me" for criteria I didn't meet. Most of the women were very much like the "alternet" article, above. They were not serious about a relationship even if they claimed to be and they took advantage of the situation.
It's hard to blame them and they didn't mean any harm by it. It was simply "too easy". They could enjoy the ride for however long suited them and hop off when they wanted. The online dating experience for men is nothing like that. I definitely had to do all the work in addition to sending the first message. Decisions were always left to me such as where to go. It was always my responsibility to make sure the date was interesting. It was up to me to provide or initiate interesting conversation. So, we'd go out once or sometimes more but then she'd stop responding. Almost exclusively, that was the way women dealt with it.
There was only one I can remember that bothered to reply and tell me we weren't a match after a date. More than one woman told me she wasn't interested via message before we dated and I appreciated the response and always said so, in a polite response.

It's discouraging to hear how many men abuse women who take the time to say "no thanks". Decent men appreciate it, believe me! Sadly, the experience was fruitless and frustrating. Most of the time, women didn't respond and I had to work really hard to get those dates.

This breeds an environment where men have to "shotgun" out messages. I've never done that but it might be the better way to have success.
Online Dating Is a Woman’s Worst Nightmare
I think online dating is bad for women because they get flooded with crap and at the same time, can fall into the trap of taking the good ones for granted. Online dating can be difficult for both sexes. However, it really is more difficult for men. That's just the reality of it. And I know it's not all bad. It's worked for a lot of people. Then women date a guy and when she learns of his Flaws, as no Man is perfect , she gets tired of putting up with less-than-perfect and then boot him to the curb.
In 30 seconds or less she is then back on the Internet searching for Mr Perfect, she finds the next Man and the vicious cycle repeats itself. I'm a woman, attractive, good head on her shoulders, financially independent. And the experience you are describing is happening to me on match. The men I went on dates with just tried to hook up, although claiming that they are looking for a life partner on their profile.

Looks like this is not a gender specific problem, but perhaps the majority of people on there being low quality. I just cant wrap my head around as to what I'm doing wrong. So frustrating. You could also be misinterpreting their intentions. It happened so many times, a girl actually said to me one day that she was expecting me to make the move when we were hanging out at her place.
So basically I got shit for not asking her to sleep with me. Women can sometimes be extremely hard to read. But some men too, to be fair. The problem here is pretty simple: Women know that they will get a shit ton of messages and likes, even the marginally attractive ones. Therefore, they have a reason to be as picky as they want. But that comes at a price. Most of those messages are awful and disrespectful. Men on the other hand get nowhere unless theyre, like someone else said "a non famous Brad Pitt.
