Stop the texting relationship and get a real date:
1. Limit texting to one week.
The only solution is to limit your texting. Enjoy a few exchanges, but if communication goes past a week, drop the guy and move on.
Every day that passes after you swipe right diminishes your chances of meeting the guy.
2. Suggest Date Zero.
Another option to end texting is to ask a man if he wants to grab coffee to see what happens. Suggesting a first meeting is not seen as aggressive in this case, because the first date is not a “real” date.
The accepted term is “Date Zero.” This is a chemistry check to see if you’re attracted to each other, get each other’s sense of humor and feel there is potential worthy of another date.
3. Don’t waste time with men who won’t make a date.
Asking a man who has been texting for a week if he wants to meet is a way to quickly discover if he’s interested in dating you. Men who don’t want a relationship prefer texting and will make excuses about why they can’t get together. That’s your clue to move on right away.
Avoid waiting around for a man to figure out if he is ready or available to meet you. Forget him if he’s too busy to see you. He’s not serious about finding love or not serious about you, so don’t waste your precious time.
Belinda thought continuing to text with all these men meant she’d end up with more dates. She feared letting go meant cutting off “opportunities” and had no idea the majority of these men had no intention of dating her.
4. Don’t put stock sweet texts from men you haven’t met.
That’s why my dating advice is to drop any man who doesn’t meet you within a week. Don’t be fooled by sweet texts filled with nonsense about how he feels about you before you meet.
If you haven’t met him, he doesn’t know a thing about you, and you don’t know about him either.
5. Remember that virtual relationships are dead ends.
I warn my clients that virtual relationships do not blossom into real relationships. Stop texting and hoping he’ll ask you out some day. That is a surefire mistake that will keep you single forever. Dump men who won’t set up a date within 7-10 days and keep swiping to find men who want the same thing you want — a lasting, loving relationship. A man looking for love wants to meet you within days, not text you forever.
