I don’t understand why he would have meaningful conversations with me, even mention he might want to meet, etc. I’m going to try to keep as much as my original reply to this reader in this article however I wanted to point something out: this situation can happen to anyone and it is not uncommon.In this article, I’ll discuss the topic in a way specific to her situation but the advice still can apply to anyone, even if your details differ.We’ve been conversing about different meaningful subjects, he asked me to talk about them, so it’s not as if I’m beating him over the head with my thoughts.And yet I think I may have overdone it as I haven’t heard from him in nearly a week, though he’s been on the site.It doesn’t mean he’s lost all interest in you…more likely he has found something that interests him just as much but is more accessible (closer in this case) to pursue.Responding to This Situation All that being said, I think it’s very reasonable for you to reach out to him. That is, I would just come out and say “Why did you stop emailing me?!A More Common Explanation Above, we’ve discussed two possible reasons on why someone would stop responding although honestly we’re starting to inspect the situation with hyper-sensitivity.We’re looking for any possible difference to explain why the person we were talking to disappeared.
So all this talk about what I think isn’t the problem might make you wonder if I have any guesses on what IS the problem.
I think one of three things is likely to happen if you send an email like this: For the first or second case, that would cause me to believe even more in my theory that he has started talking with someone else. This email isn’t about saving the relationship anymore, it’s simply about understanding what happened so you can learn for the future.
In these cases, I think writing an email requesting some closure is totally acceptable. There’s no recovery from an email like this (you’ll be asking questions like “Did I say anything wrong? If, on the other hand, he apologizes for being out of touch with you then there is still a chance but I would be cautious.
My best guess would be that it is a combination of the nature of online dating and also any areas he may have been concerned about in regards to building a relationship (in this case the distance between the two of you although it could be anything).
With online dating it is common (and even encouraged) to be talking to many people at once.
