The Question Club
Alright, here we go.|
I met a guy online almost 2 weeks ago. We emailed back and forth quite a bit and really got along well. We have a ton in common. We started texting daily but didn't talk on the phone. He asked me out and I explained that I'd rather wait and talk on the phone a few times before we meet. He was fine with that. We spoke on the phone four times (each conversation was between one and two and a half hours). Sunday night's conversation was the best one yet. It was 2 and a half hours long and really fun. He mentioned really enjoying it. Monday night rolled up and I texted him to tell him that I was hoping he was having a good night. He responded after a couple hours and seemed distant. I mentioned hanging out and he gave me the option of last night (I couldn't because I had plans) or next week after gets back from vacation. We agreed on next week and that was the end of the conversation. I haven't texted since and neither has he (he's leaving for vaca. tonight and I really don't want to bother him anyway). It's just odd because he was texting me everyday and being much more engaging. Now it's been a couple days and nothing. I don't need to talk to him daily (in fact, I'd prefer not to but that was the pattern we got into). I can understand him needing time to prepare for his vacation but the distance is kind of out of character (or what I know as his "character").
So the question: text him to say "Have fun on your vacation!" or don't text?
TL;DR- Met a guy online, things were going cool, now he's distant, text or no text?
Edit to Add: Ok, so I took the "TEXT HIM" people's advice and did it. I texted him the following
"I hope you have an amazing time in Vegas! Also, I'm really looking forward to meeting you, just wanted to let you know. :)"
and he responded with
"Thanks, we're on our way now. Vacation here I come! Sorry to gloat. Also, sorry we couldn't have met before I left. I should have brought it up sooner but I'm looking forward to it too."
Ok, I feel better. Thank you for everyone's advice.
