Don't invest your self esteem on 'dating' status.
And you gotta go with the flow.
I think I'm dating a woman ...
Had 2 dates, then we both had vacations, so no correspondence for a little over 2 weeks.
I'm pretty good at picking up the 'I'm interested' vibe, but this woman has me vexed. Which actually has me interested ...
I texted her once at the start of my vacation, indicating that I hope she enjoyed hers and to wish me luck on mine. Got a follow-up 24 hours later.
Purposely didn't text her when I got back ... I presumed she was done. Then bam ... she texts me.
(I will also confess that I do not understand what it is about women and 'texting' but by FAR that is how all the women I have dated prefer to communicate)
She and I SHOULD have chemistry ... but it isn't clear yet whether we do or not. I don't think either one of us are really playing games. I do know that she got burned badly by her ex. So ...
my text reply was basically along the lines of: "I'm in no hurry. I would very much like to spend more time with you, and I want to make that perfectly clear. Doesn't matter when."
People get squirrelly about dating and dumping. Don't. First bit of advice I give? Be selfish.
Your life, your time. Get what you want, do what you want ... for your time is limited.
If a guy is interested in you, he will contact you. If he is very interested in you, he will make that clear. If he is mildly psychotic, he'll text you every 10 minutes ... so be careful what you wish for.
You just need to get a couple of casual dates under your belt, and you're going to do just fine.
