Should I (f/26) reach out? Or is the ball in his (m/29) court?

[ad_1]

Him and I have known each other for 5 years. We tried dating 5 months ago. It lasted 5 months but he had a breakdown and felt he needed to end things. He is nearly 30 and has never been in a relationship.

​

His Dad is very sick and he felt like he needed to be there for him. He also said he that he didn’t know what was wrong with him, but he just can’t let anyone in. He cried and told me he really liked hanging out with me but felt he couldn’t give me enough. So we ended it.

​

6 months later, I ran into him at a local gig. His face lit up and he said he was so happy to see me. He wouldn’t leave my side. We danced, made out and held hands. It felt like we were dating again. At the end of the night, he asked me if he could text me. I said yes. He also asked if we could grab dinner sometime. I said sure.

​

The next day, we made dinner plans. He ended up having to cancel because of work. He asked if we could try again next week. I said sure, no problem.

​

It’s been 2 weeks and neither of us reached out to each other. We still haven’t gone on our dinner date. Was the ball in his court? I’m not sure where to go from here. Was I suppose to follow up and ask him when he was free, after he asked me if we could reschedule? Would it be weird to text him now and say, “Hey, what happened to our dinner plans?”

​

Im very confused.

​

TLDR: We dated for 5 months. He broke-down and cried because he felt he couldn’t handle it and give me enough. We ended it. 6 months later I ran into him at a gig. He said he was happy to see me. We danced, held hands, made out. He asked me if he could text me and if we could grab dinner. I said sure. We made plans. He bailed but asked if we could reschedule for the following week. I said sure. Its been 2 weeks and neither of us reached out to each other and asked when each other was free. Was the ball in my court? or did he get cold feet and not want to ignite the flame again? He was super happy to see me, so I’m very confused. Would it be weird to text him 2 weeks later and say, “hey, what happened to our dinner plans?”

Girls Straight-Up roasting me

[ad_1]

First of all I’m not trying to brag, I feel like these facts are important for this community to understand the situation. I’m tall, muscular, and attractive.

Last night at a university party I was walking home afterwards with some girls I met. So these girls keep saying things to each other things like “Yea he’s hot but like he’s wearing a visor” (I was wearing a visor i think it looks good on me), and they said it just loud enough so I could hear them. And I playfully called out “I can hear you guys”.

These jabs and insults continued most of the way back and I knew it was some kind of test and I’ve experienced it before. Anyway, I never got upset, defensive, aggressive…etc. I just rolled with the punches and teased back a little too.

But we live in the same residence complex and I asked one of them (slightly isolated from the rest of the group) if they wanted to come to my room and got denied.

WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

and also how do I respond/react to girls insulting me as a test?

How to be less platonic?

[ad_1]

So basically I’m pretty good at talking, telling stories making people laugh and basically socialising in general. But when it comes to making a move or sexualizing the conversation my balls shrink. It is the most nerve wrecking thing ever.

How do I ask a girl out?
How do I flirt?
And how to add spice to a platonic logical conversation?
