My question is: Is Match.com just 1 huge scam?.

My 2nd question is: I met a guy that lives about an hour away. We have been on one date using Match.com and it was amazing. We just clicked and got along so well. We talk when we can but I live in the boonies so most often we exchange texts due to my lack of a phone signal. We both work and have not been able to make plans to see each other since our first date,but like I said we kept in contact and exchanged many,many text messages.Last Sunday I sent a txt to my guy after work and asked how his day was. He said"my day was great for the most part,and I'm looking forward to football Sunday with you " I though to my self with me? We didn't have any plans....

And then I said I felt like that message wasn't meant for me. He says"didnt we talk about football on our first date?" I said yea,and that I was sorry I just freaked out,and that I would have loved to hang out with him football Sunday. He said "me too,but you were kinda just mean to me" I apologized again and again and he finally sent me a txt that said" I'm not going to blow you off or keep you guessing,but I am not happy with you. I don't want to talk about it. I am going to go watch football with friends,text me later in the week".

But I will leave you be and enjoy your Sunday. He said Take Care,I said You too.Thats where my long story ends....Im not sure if I should bother to txt him later this week or not or if he is really done with me.I can't believe that he got so angry about this. I think we are both at fault..maybe if we had actually talked more on the phone instead of texting this whole issue would have never happened.I am jut looking for some opinions.....I think we should both be over this..we got along so well until this...

It was a classic Text Message Misunderstanding (TMM). The more you text, and especially the more you RELY on text to convey and interpret feelings, the more of these you'll have. Clear it up in person or on the phone and I think you two will be ok. I don't think he was as "so angry" as you claim but you won't really know until you can speak again..

Keep the texting to a minimum in a new dating (online dating with Match.com) relationship (thru Match.com) and you will be way better off...

Thanks! Thats what my friends have said too. Hopefully he will talk to me again! I think I will just text him on Friday,he said later in the week,and ask him If we can start over and to call me. Guess I will see what happens...

You don't really know anything about a person from a single date. It seems like a bad sign to me that first he'd assume anything about Sunday without asking, and that then he'd accuse you of being mean and refuse to talk more. Personally, I'd refuse to bother with him anymore...

Ok so we actually cleared the air and have been talking again. He wanted me to come down Monday to see him,he's an hour away, and I said I couldn't because I had to be to work early Tuesday morning. I said what about Wednesday and he said he would have to let me know because he thought he may have to work late. Turns out that about 7pm he was still working so we couldn't see each other. Later that night I had asked about the weekend because I am off work. He said that he will probably be working and had a Halloween party out of town.

Now he seems to be a little pissed off at me for saying that and hasn't answered my call or txt all day. The last thing I sent to him last night was goodnight and he said goodnight back but he usually says something a little sweeter than that. And like I said has not contacted me at all today in a anyway. He says things that indicate he likes me and wants to make more time to see each other but it's just not happening. I dont know what to do......

Whoa, this is way too much drama for only having had 1 date using Match.com with this guy. Yikes! I would move on. Sounds like he might be controlling... getting angry when he doesn't get his way and you speak your mind?? There was nothing wrong with you saying he'll have to let you know when he's available. The distance seems to also be an issue. btw, you living in the boonies or not....

Which, quite frankly, not a big deal since he's been angry with you twice already! I would cut my losses and move on.Good luck.zjaney..
