ask him and see what he says. I agree with neck; something sounds fishy. I'd ask.

Anything is possible but a different idea is that maybe he has a life outside of the internet & only has free time on weekends. Strange how the long hours of chat time has yet to materialize into a meet or even to ask him this question.

I had to laugh at "wife on the side", too. Sign of the times, the "ME" generation. Those damn wives keep getting in the way of a good potential boyfriend, lol.

OP, you're only a chat buddy for when he's bored on the weekends. If this is going to go anywhere, I'd be bumping this up to talking on the phone. If he wants it, give him your number, it's no big deal just to talk.

It might also be that he works and has his kids during the week and they go to mom's on the weekends, which frees up his time??? Just a guess.

Seems some people are curious as to what happened.....lol

Yeah, was just wondering. It's nice to follow up to though.
People take the time to answer and give there thoughts, then
Bam!
That's the end of that thread.
They do that a lot of forums seeking advise about car problems, or home related problems, where it would have been nice to know the outcome, it helps us all learn.
From this we learned ,
"Turns out he was just very busy during the week." and It does not always mean there was something "fishy" going on.....................LOL

They did a study about online dating and found that while it is an effective way to meet people the longer you email the worse off you are. Basically, you should talk over the phone or face-to-face as soon as possible. The longer you stay "virtual" the more expectations and concerns grow. Also, be cautious about anyone who only talks to you during certain time...if you can't call him at any time day or night drop him.

I knew a girl that dated a guy in Waco Texas. He had a great apartment, their sex life was wonderful etc.. However, he was alway unavailable on the weekends. Turns out he had a house in Houston and would visit his wife and kids on the weekend but would stay in his apartment in Waco during the week for work. The wife found the girlfriends number on the phone bill and gave her a call....he's now divorced.
