Amanda writes, “I met a man online, we texted all the time, but we never talked on the phone, because of his reluctance and because texting was working fine for us. He’s always telling me how he loves me so much and how I have made him so happy. But there’s a slight age difference between us. about 6 or 7 years. I do love him and have never felt this way about anyone. Usually I date a guy for a week and then move on. He has told me recently that he’s never felt the way he feels towards me. I feel like he’s leading me on and then is going to emotionally hurt me. I’ve talked to him on the phone and he said that he would never do that to me because he really loved me. I don’t know if he really loves me or not. He wants me to move in with him but I am so confused. What should I do?”
My thoughts are that this maybe moving a bit faster than you want because you typically date a guy for a week anyway. What I suggest is that you at least meet him a few times and date him like most couples do. Once you are totally convinced that he is the man you could envision living together with, then you should think about moving in. Without being 100% positive that he is a clean man with no criminal intentions and you do really love him and would not get bored with him after a week of living together, it is a terrible idea to move in. As you will read in this blog post the relationship of this woman ended right after she moved in with a man she met online.
