He said that is what turned him off to them and OLD in general. I wouldn't take it too personally, you never know what is happening in his life and with his children. Try not to make up reasons when you really don't know what happened.
So then I start wondering if I did something similar. He will like and accept me know matter what I say or do. I know pretty early on in the date if it is a go forward or not and try not to play games with them. You should be proud of yourself for taking the risk.
When you've been dating longer, maybe he would have planned his trip a little differently, or you would have gone with...because you hit that place. After all, as a single dad his ability to find time for himself is probably very difficult to find.We get along so well, and he's really a keeper, so I'm really in limbo right now, but patience is key.This man is doing what a good man does by being involved with his children and activities. All seems well, but you are both very busy and kids/job trump everything. No one knows how this will progress, but you have to try, and you'll feel better having done so. I initially did question him skipping the tournament in the first place and he did do the right thing.We just weren't a match and he may have gotten his hopes up. I think you're worrying more because you really felt a connection. I'm lucky in that the guy I'm seeing is in contact daily. I would have contacted him the next day, just to say hi, how was your day?But I told him when he asked for the second date and didn't leave him hanging. Notice often people will accuse others of mistakes they're doing themselves. Now, you have rejected a guy or guys because things didn't click and it would be a wonderful world if everyone was open and honest but that isn't always the case. I really suck at this "don't text and wait X amount of time game." I like him, and I think he should know. Mine is busy with kids and job as well, and I'm feeling a little pushed aside and insecure, but I really like this guy.
