I just experienced a truly unique dating situation. Can you please help me understand what happened after only a few dates? The story starts a couple weeks ago when I was introduced to a young lady by a mutual friend. I eagerly agreed to meet her. We went out for coffee for the first date and things seemed to be going well.
We discovered a mutual passion for our Jewish heritage.
We even discovered that we had gone to the same Jewish summer camp. Our activity levels were the same as well and since I like living as full a life as possible, that was important to me. I thought we were perfect for each other! After another date, I offered to take her out to dinner to celebrate her passing her professional licensing exam and she seemed appreciative and excited.
I even got her a small gift.
A couple days before our planned dinner, she sent me a text out of the blue saying she wanted to stop seeing each other. I told her I respect her decision and that I hope we can stay in touch. Now I'm stuck feeling disappointed and rejected.
This was a tough blow because I was dating patiently for the last couple years. I live in a small city and often to meet Jewish singles, I would have to drive over an hour to Philly or New York.
Usually, the relationships I did have couldn't withstand the distance. I also felt like I couldn't truly get to know someone. I was so excited to meet a like-minded person who lived so close by. I'm worried I came on too strong because of my excitement. I am further along in my career than she is. Did she feel overwhelmed by the prospect of dating someone more mature? I still have feelings for this girl.
Is there any chance we can work it out? Should I try to contact her again after we both cool off?
Can you give me some advice so that I don't make the same mistake twice? Thank you for writing to us.
There could be a number of reasons why the dating that seemed so promising to you ended the way it did:. Your enthusiasm may have scared her; you were coming on too strong. Many times when one person quickly develops positive feelings about their dating partner and the other person feels more neutral, the more neutral dater gets scared off.
You may have "pushed a button" that turned her off at some point. Even though you only went out twice, it will take a little while to work through your feelings of rejection and disappointment. It's important to realize that things might not have progressed simply because you are not right for each other, and to learn what you can from what happened.
Only April will read it, and only April will answer it. And feelings aren't always straightforward! Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 of 7 total.

What can you learn? Moving to the next fast thrill. They are kind of like sprint runners or adrenaline junkies.
They reach the climax way too fast then stop abruptly when the thrill is over. The guy who is coming on too strong is not connected to you or your emotions.
He is selfish, he needs to fill a void within himself and he is obsessed with getting his own needs met. The man who comes on too strong is NOT interested in investing into a long-term connection with you. If he is calling you Babe, baby, boo or boo thang within only weeks of knowing you. He is not in this for you, he is in this for himself. Most guys realize that telling the new chick they just met that they just broke up with their girlfriend like a week or two ago is an instant dealbreaker.
A little digging will reveal the truth if you can spare 15 minutes on the internet you are bound to find the truth. A guy who is rebounding will be completely emotionally distant or unavailable, OR he will come on too strong! He will be so desperately trying to ignore the pain of his recent breakup, that he will smother you with text, phone calls, dates, attention and unwarranted affection.
If you are low on self-love and desperate for affection, you are fish in the net for this asshole. The guy who is rebounding will try to seamlessly slip you right into the role their ex played. His ex that he was with for over a year or so and this is why it seems unreal and superficial. He is trying to make an entry level employee a CEO after a week on the job. What comes fast, goes fast!
