I am new to dating again.. At age 40, its a challenge trying to get back into the game. I have read a few books- but really liked David Deangelos stuff as a good starter. I have a situation that has me confused, and a bit hurt to be honest.
I started dating this woman named Ericka a few weeks ago. From the beginning we got along well and there was alot of eye contact and laughs. I teased her and dialed up the attraction. I leaned back and gave her space, and she responded really really well.
On the 3rd date a week or so later, we wnet out again and this time I dialed it up and tested her reactions. I would touch her for a while and then remove my hand, she would reach and to reconnect, I teased her for the kiss until the Tension was sky high and backed off.. she responded by touching and leaning into me more and more. I tested her attraction all night and it just kept getting higher and higher, as we had a great time. She also tested me as well. At one point she was getting a little "bitchy" about something kind of ridiculous and starting to make it a big deal.. at first I almost apologized (as I usually would) but I realized what was happening and leaned back, and kind of smiled knowingly. Her reaction was amazing, immediately she dropped it all and reached for my hand.
Am I painting a picture here? Everything was great, not just great, but awesome.
Even on the way home we maintained contact until I dropped her off. We kissed and the look on her face when we both admitted we wanted to get together soon was priceless.
A few days later I text her- no response. I waited two more days after that and sent a text- no response.
That was yesterday and still no response. I checked her profile on the dating site and she has definitely been online there since- presumably setting up/looking.
What did I do wrong here? Her behavior had all the classic signs of being into me. For the life of me I am confused here and cant stop thinking about what exactly I did wrong here. Not to mention that I really really liked her. Of all the girls I've dated these last few months she made the biggest impression.. funny, sexy, smart, awesome sense of humor.. definitely relationship material.
Any ideas on what exactly went wrong and what I should do next?
