What does raincheck mean in dating

Do not deal with men the same way you deal with women. They pay very close attention to the power balance and immediately assess how desperate a woman is. Ladies stop being naive.

If a man is not initiating or asking to confirm or reschedule, do not contact him. Why would you bother? There are other prospects. I have had cell phones for 20 plus years and you know what? I think his interest is low…the fact he did actually meet again was probably to see if there was something there. I would not bother with him…when you have to be the one constantly contacting him that means his interest is very low. RAVEN, he did reschedule but when that day came his phone was broke so it had to be rescheduled again!!

However, the person who asks for the raincheck is the one responsible for making new plans. If someone is facing a legitimate scheduling conflict or sick they will make every effort to reschedule, usually at the time they cancel. He was blowing you off. He probably only saw you later when he had nothing else going on.


Who asks who out after a raincheck? - friend hanging resolved | Ask MetaFilter

I say take care to the people i care for So I'm sort of on this and that's why I was asking for opinions. But then she initiated a text a few hours later. Second was when I asked her for a drink, she said rain check but didn't offer a make up time. But then again, she didn't have to even say rain check. It's hard to tell. If I'm keen, I would usually suggest a firm alternative date. But she did tell you that she'd be free after Monday. Call her next week to ask her out properly time, day and place that's the only way you'll know. Now, go do something something fun and don't over-analyse Good luck!

I use the phrase "take care" all the time.

I had no idea people might take it negatively. Then again, if you toss it into the middle of a conversation, it can pretty much only be interpreted as an attempt to end the convo. But she did start it back up later on. Ask her out again in a while. It sounds like she is worth asking out again after the day she says she would be free. At that point anything but arranging a firm date is a rejection.

When they love you, they think you are more exciting than you really are! I agree with AC, she tried to shake you off politely with the 'take care' ending in her first message. She kept responding to your questions afterwards but made no effort to try to reconnect with you. I'd say she isn't interested and too polite to say so. Well, she is not crazy about you but I say give it a shot one more time. If you want to see how much initiative and interest he has towards you, then Yes, wait for him to ask first.

This is as good an opportunity to check his initiative level.

Not dating, we've just been talking and hanging out the past few weeks. If you're not dating, definitely don't worry about dating rules. Friends are allowed to talk to each other without any rules or drama. If you have an idea of something fun to do, by all means invite your friend. It has been a few days; it's not like you are calling him all the time and being annoying.

I'll take a rain check

I'm going to be the cynical person here and say that if you didn't set a date at the time of the rescheduling then it probably won't happen, as the rain check was probably in part a way of weaseling out of hanging out. If it happens it's a nice surprise but don't ever expect it. Goes for platonic friends too. Disagree with me all you want, but there are plenty of threads, like this one, that suggest bullshit like "oh, I'm just so busy tonight!

Most Helpful Guy

Just ask him out already. Life is too short. I don't think it was weasling out of hanging out considering i was the one that said it was too late. I didn't offer another time because i didn't know my work schedule yet. I'll just ask him and see what he says.

When She Says "Maybe" or "We'll See"

Pretending to be his friend while playing old-fashioned "The Rules" style mind games with him is not going to work out the way you want. There is no decent guy in the world who is going to recoil in disgust when a girl he likes asks him out. No mentally healthy dude is going to think, "Damn, I really liked her until she asked me out, but now I can never date her because she broke The Rules and is therefore a desperate whorebag!

Life is too short for being scared of romantic rejection. Ask him out now and you'll save your own time and his.
