My suspicions were confirmed when I met up with a 33-year-old man but he did not reply to my texts and stopped texting me after meeting up. I later discovered that he was already dating another woman and that I was not going to be part of his relationship. There were some red flags, like stopping texting and not telling the truth, and I blocked him and that seemed immature. Young men can be immature, but older men can also be immature. What would happen if more than one occurred. A similar thing happened to me but didn't meet up since another guy already has a girlfriends and i also did blocked both of guys now.I have also found a new man that I have been messaging, freedating.co.uk, who seems like a decent person, unlike the previous men that I had met before.

    Oh no, I can only empathise with how difficult this sounds @Splatmate24 :( Keep up with noticing the red flags and taking care of yourself. You are the most important. How is messaging the new man going so far?  :)

    That sounds positive @Splatmate24, especially taking it slow and the green flags. How have the last couple of weeks been for you with this?  :)
