Anxiety about dating
Its a strange concept in this day and age when a guy isn't interested in that.
I'm the same....not interested in girls sending pictures.
Some people are attracted to personality over physical....considering it a good thing you.
You haven't ruined anything and you now know he's not interested in you for a physical relationship only.
Consider yourself lucky that you've found someone who will appreciate you for who you are.
Take care x
Good afternoon Von,
I agree with the previous responses as well. Take it for what it is. At some stage or another either of you could have asked for a pic and for most occasions there is no wrong time.
Try not to think worse case scenarios of what the other person may be thinking. It will definitely make anxiety creep in if you do.
Sounds exciting though and you have a true interest in something moving forward. Just let it keep unfolding step by step.
Stay safe and enjoy your day.
Thank you all so much for replying.
Its really nice to hear from other people that it’s not the end of the world and that I shouldn’t be embarrassed. I definitely tend to jump to worst case scenario in these kinds of situations so I’ll just try to stay calm and positive.
Hi Von is lost,
It's sad that in modern times we grow to learn that men only want to objectify this.
It's great that this guy wants to get to know you, enjoy it 🙂 He's probably one of the good ones! He suggested meeting up, that means it didn't bother him much if at all 🙂
He sounds like a nice guy and not just after one thing which most of them are after these days!
I think it is respectful that he didn’t request photos of you
How long since you have heard from him if you don’t mind me asking
