With summer wrapping up, a few guys I've been talking with online have had to defer dates for a couple of weeks due to travel, etc. 2 different guys have said something to the effect of “let’s meet up when we're back, if you’re still single.”
I find that adorable for a couple of reasons. First, it’s just boyish and cute. Second, chances are that if I am actively talking to you, there’s a small chance I won’t be available in 2 weeks, but it's cute of you to say.
It is nice of them to acknowledge subtly that both of us probably talking to and maybe dating more than one person. That's just part of the process.
What not to do? Ask me on a date for next week and then later tell me you're hungover, because you had a first date the other night that turned into 2 days of partying. I did not respond to this guy.
I'm not delusional when it comes to online dating, but some things are better left unsaid.
