My first date wasn't worth it and was a player, so I moved on to my next date with a guy I met on a dating site called freedating co. uk. I know he had been seeing a girl before, but the girl broke it off because they were going too slow. I did ask a question and asked to explain what i meant by taking it slow. i meant is get to know each other first before getting into a relationship. That's what I meant by taking it slow. He suggested a public duck pond, but I only asked him one question about meeting up via WhatsApp, and he replied that he was thinking about meeting up . i just left and wait and see . what do you think about the new guy?

    That sounds like a good and safe idea to meet up in a public place and tell someone where you are going because you don’t know him yet, just because it’s good safety. It doesn’t sound a bad thing that he likes to take things slow and that he’s looking for a serious relationship. I guess you won’t know until you’ve talked for long and met up if you hit it off or not. Does he seem nice so far? Do you have things in common?

    Sounds promising so far. That’s nice you both have shared pictures of your pets and have that love of dogs in common. It’s good that he is honest and that he felt comfortable telling you about things he isn’t comfortable with like too much noise or busy places. I hope you will feel comfortable sharing with him in the same way if there’s anything you need him to know to make things easier for you.
