Unfortunately I was really starting to fall for him (and perhaps he sensed this) and now I have to pick up the pieces while it appears our time together meant very little to him. On our last date he was attentive, romantic and everything seemed fine. Maybe things got too intense and he wasn't ready for a relationship so he bailed. I emailed him after a week and he responded right away and then disappeared. Stupidly, I tried one more time a week later..same thing..disappeared and left me hanging. It's sad that by disappearing so rudely, he is basically burning a bridge which to me means, this is OVER wiith a capital O. I know I should feel relieved that it happened after only five dates instead of 4-5 months but I'm still feeling very discouraged about dating when I can be so misled by a charmer. And at 50, I'm no spring chicken but he certainly played me for a fool. �?
