Another excuse that he will give for not dating you?
He will say that he wants to take things slow and you don't seem to want that, so he's going to take a step back and let you find someone else.
He might even say that this has nothing to do with you, he just likes to take things slow in relationships generally, and so he felt the need to bring it up. It's the worst to like a guy and be told that, oops, he just wants to be friends. This will be frustrating AF to hear because you are probably talking to him on an online dating site or a dating app. Instead of wasting time wondering why he doesn't want to date you and trying to figure out the meaning behind his words, you should definitely find someone who wants to and you will forget all about this silly and annoying situation.
This is even worse when you are actually going out with him. A guy can tell you this when you haven't even gone on a first date yet, of course, and at least then it will make some kind of sense. There's nothing wrong with showing someone how you feel. You have probably online dated in the past or you are doing that right now. So, of course, you have to wonder why he even made a profile and went on it in the first place. You have definitely heard guys say that they don't know what they want, right?
If a guy tells you that you're clingy and that's why he can't date you, that's a lie. It's a way for him to get out of this easily and not have to face up to the fact that he really does like you and that things really are heating up between the two of you. This is a super common excuse that someone will give you for not dating you.
You have probably heard it from a lot of guys that you have been crushing on or even been dating for a few weeks or a few months.
He just wants to make himself feel better and talk himself up.
Sure, you can believe what people choose to tell you, but you're the one who is going to get hurt. You deserve someone who wants to be with you and realizes how amazing you are.
If you hear any of these excuses, don't believe them and don't talk to this person ever again. If a guy tells you that he's about to go on vacation so he can't go out with you, then you can be sure that something else is going on.
They might even start a great big rant about their hatred of marriage and commitment.
You definitely don't need to listen to it, especially if they are being rude at the same time.
