I am a Libra woman who was in a long term relationship that ended earlier this year. I downloaded tinder and quickly deleted it.. But not before I found a Taurus guy that I found interesting. We texted every day and he added me on snapchat and Instagram. Turns out we have a lot of mutual friends too.
We talked for weeks about our lives and futures. It was great until he would go for like 10 hours without messaging back. And that would've been okay if he hadn't been saying that he wasn't busy that day. I'm not sure if that's normal Taurus behavior or If he was just playing games. Nonetheless, he would initiate every conversation. Then he asked me on a date and our schedules didn't match up. In fact, he went out of town and went to see a "girl friend" the same weekend that I went to see my ex.
Long story short, my ex and I ended up back together. He and the girl did not. It didn't take me long to realize that I had only made this decision because I was comfortable with my ex... So I ended up breaking it off for good. But not before the Taurus guy saw us together on social media...
After the break up, i waited some time and apologized to the Taurus for not explaining anything about my ex or even formally telling him that we were going to try again. He thanked me for my apology and said he wasn't hurt. He said he wondered what he did wrong at first but just belittled everything by saying "we met on tinder anyway so it's not a big deal".. We talked a little more, he was opening up to me about some things that were going on in his life, and then he just stopped responding.
I've initiated a few more conversations since and he does the same thing... He'll engage me, have an interesting chat, and then just stop cold. But at the same time he's watching all of my snapchat stories and liking all of my Instagram pictures and told me he would stay in touch.. I'm so confused.
We are both from the same town but right now, we're across the world for school. He returns home in a month and I come back early next year. I am past the rebounding phase and truly over my ex.. I kinda liked this guy and I just don't know how I'm supposed to fix it. Is he just a player and emotionally unavailable or was he put off by everything with my ex? The silence is driving me nuts... I like to talk through my thoughts and he's not like that... AT ALL.
Just so we're clear, I haven't been with my ex for months now and I first apologized to the Taurus guy about a month
