For the record, it's one of these five: In a relationship, you are either an option or a priority.
Instead of committing himself, he continues seeing you without making things exclusive and without getting too close.
You’re meeting, you’re talking, you’re hanging, you’re enjoying his company. He’s seen women like you freak out over and over again, so he just deals with it. So you look at him and say maybe we slept together too early. Now it’s 8.00pm and the neurotic you comes kicking right back and you’re like I haven’t heard from him all day long. He’s not going to sit there in a car or sit there at a rest stop with you and say, well gee, I don’t know if I can really date you right now. He’s going to have to retire from the seduction streak he’s been on.
It comes out of left field and the guy just sits there and shakes his head like a bobble head doll because he doesn’t know what the fuck to say. You’ll sleep with him and you’ll have that freak out moment because you enjoyed it so much but you’re not quite sure if he felt the same way. hmm, this is out of character You don’t hear from him. He’s super sexy right now and he’s connecting with lots of women. It’s primal and unreal and he connects with you and he’s on a roll. They’ve met so many women and each woman just gets better and better and better until all of a sudden he meets one that just blows him away. He realizes that the streak is going to have to end.
This may be the first time he goes into the cave but it won’t be the only time.
At some point, most women have dated a man who runs hot and cold. He's messaging every day, he wants to see you all the time and he wants to take you out to places you've never been before. More time passes, and the silence makes you paranoid. It is the 21st century, after all, and we are modern, self-sufficient women who can message first.
