He came in wanting to end things on the spot, but when he left he said he needed some time to process and think about what I had said. Four days in, I sent him a text saying look, don't feel bad either way but I don't want to be kept waiting ... He said he could be exclusive and then a week later changed his mind? I really want closure, but part of me thinks it isn't worth it to call him and confront him.
(Also, this was a few days before we hit the one month mark of dating). and he responded, "I definitely feel bad either way," but nothing more.
Instead, he completely freaked out, first saying he wasn't ready for a relationship. It just means that all new relationships are fragile. You barely knew this guy but you were more concerned about snagging him than figuring him out.
He said that *if* we kept dating and got to the point where it became a relationship, he wasn't sure if he would say yes so he didn't want to waste my time, and so on.

Hi Meredith, My story is this: A guy I knew through a friend asked me out. We had a great first date that quickly turned into a second, third, and fourth date.

[Read: When should you say ‘I love you’ for the first time? Remember, this new guy you’re dating is only a part of your life. If you place him on a pedestal and devote all your time to him, he’ll treat you just the way you’re behaving, like a slave. If he doesn’t call you for a couple of days or if he cancels on a date in the last minute, don’t sulk or let him know you’re upset. If he really is trying to impress you and not just sleep with you, the fact that you seem so unbothered will threaten him and even scare him. By doing that, you’re only letting the guy you’re dating know that he can manipulate you and control you.
