So to make sure that I avoid these situations as much as possible, I frequently reflect on my past performances and decide which ones work best and which need to be retired.
I probed a bit asking what his deal was and he admitted that he'd been intentionally evasive because he was uncomfortable that I was dating other guys.I'm definitely not one to indulge in jealousy, especially when I've never even met the person and I said cool, thanks for coming clean but no dice.You know that old expression -- "Fool me once shame on you. Basically, it's saying that the first time someone screws you over, it's on them. We're creatures of habit and fall into the same patterns over and over again. In dating, it's often difficult not to engage in the same behaviors on repeat.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. If this is true, why would someone take the *time* to play with a person by calling them and messaging them? Things happen, people get cold feet, something comes up, their wife won't let them out of the house-- all sorts of things.
One person I've been in touch on-and-off with makes plans and then cancels at the last minute or doesn't show up. Another guy whom I was supposed to meet today at 12pm cancelled twelve minutes before our agreed meeting time. Ummm, personally, I would feel like a Schmuck if I kept setting myself up for being treated that way. For the second guy, how would the op know she would get cancelled on at the last minute? I always ring and confirm, as I do not like being stood up.

As adamant as I usually am about these rules, every now and again, I experience a moment of weakness where I break them. Two months ago, I started chatting with a tall, Jewish, handsome, runner who also happened to be employed. Bad Jews, the both of us had goofed on the date and upon realizing our faux pas decided to reschedule. Finally, I said, enough is enough -- make a date or let's stop chatting. At this point, we were communicating fairly frequently. I told him I was casually dating a few people and he said "If we were to go out and click, I'd expect you to stop dating them -- I'm a one gal type of guy." Now, this isn't usually my style -- I wait for things to get serious before becoming exclusive, but I indulged him and said sure why not.
