Anytime a guy pulled back I will just say pull back even harder, just completely pull back. You will not gonna respond to his text as often, you’re gonna leave him on reading from time to time, no more haha’s and lols and cancel the next date. Then see what happens on the next date if there’s any difference at all.
And what you got to do is to get him emotional and thinking if you like him and the way to do that is to back off and cancel a few dates but make sure you give him a valid excuse. You have to make him feel that somebody is more important than him.
