Wow, I've that a few times (though probably not as far as you in dating terms).

I assumed the ladies involved just weren't interested and were either too emotionless or even cowardly to just say either way if they were interested - or not. I didn't know _guys_ did that too! What's the point? Isn't it just intentionally wasting someone's time?

If it had been a few days of non-contact then, sure, there may be a reason - some family tragedy, broken phone and internet or something - but after that it's just weird.

Speaking of weird, get used to it on the dating scene. You may slowly realise that everyone out there is strange to some degree! Keep the faith, though. :)

The least you can say is that it means he isn't a man. :)

what difference does it make?? bottom line, if he's working that hard to avoid you, your chances of finding out the "real reasons" a.k.a. "the whole story" are slim. write it off.

Exactly. When it's that messy & f'd up, and given enough tries as it has -- no sense in trying to get Real answers out of it. It sucks, but ya move on. At best, with luck & the right schemes of timing, you'll get PC responses. At worst, you'll just end up being more hurt because they've already shown they don't respect you much as a person and are more than ready to be defensive of what they internally feel guilty about.

The folly of online dating..and the vast, vast amounts of time and energy spent trying to figure out scumbags on the other end.
