Messaging: A tale of two dates...Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
I find in general that guys want to text and we get on really well but then they chicken out of actually meeting up. Hence I don't give me number out too quickly these days, preferring to feel comfortable on here first although that hasn't stopped me meeting on the spur of the moment.

It boils down to personalities. Nothing actually beat face to face and being able to see the other persons smile and mannerisms.

I'm not one for endless messaging myself, I prefer to have a telephone conversation and arrange to meet for coffee etc. In my experience those that are "chatty" via messages become tongue tied and boring face to face, and those that appear more reseverd have been gregarious and fun.

I suppose all one can do is play it by ear and hope for the best.

Hope things work out for the OP.
