    Ok so I met a guy on grindr and we became friends really quickly.We used to message everyday and now we don't even message anymore.Its strange because I messaged him like 3 or 4 types over the course of 3 days and no response.I don't like this guy and he doesn't like me but I thought I made a new friend..am I just acting craycray because friends don't talk everyday or am i acting the right way?I ve known this guy for about 2 weeks now.I mean we are still in the process of getting to know each other btw.

    itsmesnitches saidwell.... technically, you guys aren't friends. just exchanging some words with each other. pick up and move on.
    How are we "technically" not friends though?

    Is this the first time something like this has happened to you?
    If so, get used to it.
    Sometimes guys show a lot of interest right away, you think you've made a friend or more, then they drop off the face of the earth.
    Guys are like that - they can't say up front that they aren't interested, so they just stop contacting you.
    Just take things easy when you meet a guy - and don't get your hopes up too soon. If they're interested, they'll stick around.

    Yes, it can be very disappointing, especially when you feel like you had a real connection.
    And, I don't want to be discouraging, but I'm just being real - it does happen. You'll meet other guys and make friends, and more - just don't get discouraged and let a guy that does that stop you from getting back out there.

    And, don't be that guy - because the time will come when you meet someone that's really into you and you're just not feeling it. The easy way out is to just ignore him and hope he goes away. Have the balls to let him know it's not going to work out - put yourself in his place (you know how it feels) and do the right thing.

    Be a good guy and you'll make lots of good friends.

    That you need to explain. How can you be friends with someone you don't like?

    I met one of the most wonderful people I've ever known online--living cross country, there's no other way we'd have met--who only got away from me by dying, yet I've had a family member who I grew up with act like my dearest friend for 50 years before destroying our relationship.

    Life's a crap shoot. There's no one way to meet or to keep people in your life. Sometimes I think that the only guarantee, as I see it happen to so many good people, is that somewhere along the way--hopefully not too often, or you have to look at what might be causing that--no matter how correctly you live life, you're going to get fucked.

    Welcome to the world.
