On Saturday, I went on my first good date in a very, very long time. We were both all smiles, and we had what I, at least, thought was a really good time. (We’d agreed to meet up for brunch–a meal that ended up lasting about 2.5 hours, plus a leisurely walk around the block where the subway was, just to avoid having to actually get on the train.)
We both live in the same direction from the restaurant where we met, so we ended up on the subway together. Just before I got off at my stop, I gave him a big hug and asked him to call me. I thought for sure he would. It’s now Tuesday, at almost midnight, and I’ve heard nothing from him. When do I come to the conclusion that he just isn’t into me? Is it pushy and desperate if I text him? (My gut tells me that it is, but I’d like to hear your perspective.)
For context–I’m a 40 year old woman. My marriage ended three years ago. I haven’t really dated since then, and my experiences with online dating have been crappy, to say the least. I’m no supermodel, but I’m not hideous either. And, until Saturday, I hadn’t been on a real first date in about 8 years.
