So I met this guy online. We have talked for 2 weeks, IMing, texting, and by phone. He finally asked me out Monday night, for Saturday. Seemed like a great guy, lots in common. Today, he says it doesn't seem like I'm interested in him and that I need to prove to him that I'm worth him wanting to date. I hired a new girl at work, have been busy at work, training the new girl, and my dm was in today, so I couldn't text as much. He knew this. Now I'm wondering if I won't have a date. What do you ladies make of this? Crazy guy or am I the crazy one?

I would be weary? He seems to need a lot of attention.

This is where I'm leaning! My guy friend said he's showing his crazy before our first date. Bad sign.

I'd take that as a red flag. Before even going on a first date you have to prove to him that your worth wanting to date. That seems like he's already expecting you to be putting him above everyone and everything else. It's a first date! You're not married or have been in a relationship for years and are leaving him neglected. I say cut him out and move on.

You have to prove to him that you're worth him wanting to date? LOL

How about him proving that he's worth you taking time away from your job, your kid, your life, to go out with him?

It sounds to me like he needs more attention than he's worth. Frankly, I'd be kind of snarky and text him back and say, "You're right, I'm not worth you dating. So sorry I wasted your time. Go find that princess you apparently deserve."

To me that shows he is trouble, you haven't even had a date yet!

Needy man!!

ANY man who is a real and emotionally healthy man will chase after the prize - you.

you should not have to prove yourself to anyone. I would just tell him good luck with is ad but the date is probably not a good idea.

Thank you for helping me see that my gut instinct is right! I could see if we were in a relationship, but not before we have met.
