I'm 27 years old, a couple of months ago I started talking to a man who is 40. Though there's an age difference we actually have a lot in common and have plenty to talk about on dates. We met on a dating app. His profile says he's looking for an LTR, so does mine. He was the one that contacted me and invited me on our first date. We've been on 6 dates already and he hasn't made a move. I would try to make a move, but he puts his hand out for a handshake everytime we say goodbye. For our 6th date I invited him to my place to watch a movie thinking he'd be more comfortable in a private setting. I planned on sitting next to him, flirt and go for the kiss. Instead he insisted I sit down first and then he picked a seat away from me. I was pretty bummed so I just didn't even try anything. He texts me regularly (not everyday, but every few days) and he's interested on going on another date. He does call me handsome on some of his texts and makes time for us to go out even though he's a busy guy with school and work, so I don't get it. I feel like I'm getting mixed signals from him. He's the oldest guy I've dated, so I'm not sure if maybe older guys tend to take this long to make a move. He's also European, but the last European guy I dated kissed me on the first date. I want to ask him if he's actually looking for a relationship with me or just wants to be friends, but don't want to scare him away either if he's just the type to take it slow. It may be about a week or so until we see each other again since he's in school and has finals coming up this week. Should I wait to ask him in person or is it ok to text him? Or Should I even ask and just try to kiss him? How do I go from handshake to kiss if he puts his hand out again? Lol.
