Are you guilty of it? Your sitting on home, twiddling your thumbs. Then boom! You get a message on your dating app. You read his profile, and well, you decide to message him back, why not you’re bored, anyways.
I’m not saying this is wrong, and it’s always good to get to know someone new. You guys exchange emails the whole night, and then he asks, “wanna trade numbers?”
At that point, you give him an excuse like, “I rather chat on here for now” or “get to know each other more first.” Even though you replied to his emails 30 or 40 times. Does this sound like something you have done? We all have been there.
No, just how you have led guys on because you were bored or just want someone to talk to, guys do the same. If you ask a guy for his number and says he prefers to speak or communicate through email, that is the first red flag. Either he’s married, or he’s not interested.
As soon as you see the red flag, stop engaging in conversation. If a guy is interested in you, he will ask you for your number. If it gets to the point where you have to ask him, he is not interested. Save yourself the excuses and heartbreak and cut it off early because the more you pursue this person, the more painful it can become.
