While your priority should always be your safety and comfort when online dating, it's still nice when to let people down politely when you can.
After a nice chill sesh, they always text you to compliment you and say they'd love to get together, but they never follow through.
You would definitely love to spend a Saturday night eating pizza with your new boyfriend.
I know it sometimes works for other people, but when you're already disinterested in dating in the first place, it usually leads to an awkward encounter and an awkward goodbye where you feel like a total jerk for not wanting to go out again.
Being single for a long time is not a great problem but showing no interest in the opposite sex whatsoever is a major headache.
What It Means: Even though you and your crush clearly get along, if they keep ghosting you and then resurfacing ages later, they're stringing you along.
