Thanks for this. It's so true. Ultimately, I decided against texting him back and asking to hangout because I'm too old to be chasing guys like that. If he wanted to be with me, it would be a whole lot easier and I wouldn't be stressing like I was. Luckily, I only freaked out about the situation for a day and I'm fine with the situation now. It sucks, I'm disappointed, and I'm not sure what caused him to shut me out but it happens and you move on. And that sucks that the guy you were talking to only wants to chat. That happens far too often, I find, and it's indeed very annoying.
