Firstly, don’t panic. There are some charming rogues out there, who unfortunately apply the same principles to dating as they might to bird watching or train spotting. It isn’t the quality of the dates; it’s the quantity of the dates themselves. They just can’t help moving onto the next ‘challenge’ and it’s the pulling that counts, not the date itself — whether you have been to bed together or not. All very superficial, but there’s a fair few of them out there.
Then again, it may simply be that he didn’t feel that it was worth pursuing alter the first date. He may have been shallow enough to reject you on the basis that you didn’t ‘give out’. Or he may simply have felt that it didn’t go that well. Sadly, in this imperfect world, some msn think that there is no need to say anything about it. They simply don’t call again and ignore any communication from you.
There is a form of dating etiquette, which varies a little between men and women, and being armed with a few first date ‘rules’ won’t go amiss. And if you follow these, you can reassure yourself that l you behaved impeccably and any lack of follow through is simply his loss!
