He went cold after the first two dates, having lost interest in you.
He enjoyed your company but realized that the connection he is looking for isn’t there.
There is a part of him that believed the connection he had with you during those two dates were sufficient.
Notwithstanding, at a moment in time after the second date, he began to doubt that.
It was a specific exchange that either of you had during the date or something in particular you said or did on the dates that made him feel uneasy.
While he was in the moment, he didn’t pick up on it.
He sensed an oddity, but was having so much fun he decided to ignore it.
Since he has been away from the date and that moment, he has had time to reflect and come to terms with that feeling.
Upon thinking it through, he realizes that he doesn’t want to take this any further with you, being afraid that this is an issue that is prone to cause further problems in the future.
It’s hard for you to figure out when this moment occurred on those dates.
Think back to a moment when he seemed to be a little bit out of it as though he was in some far away place in his head.
This was the moment that you said or did something that made him doubt.
Since he made it all the way to that crucial second date with you, he must have liked you to an extent and was interested in seeing where things could go.
The second date is where he had this moment and felt a sense of doubt about moving forward with you.
Additionally, consider the possibility that he is dating several women.
There are lots of people who date multiple people at the same time until they find the person that they are ready to settle down with.
They play the field.
He has a generous amount of dating prospects that he is seeing in tandem.
You didn’t pass that final test in that second date, and as a result, he has spun his primary attention to these girls, many of whom are being put through the same tests.
He is taking time out to assess his emotions and intentions.
There are guys who get this far in the dating process and go cold, realizing that the person they have just gone on two dates with is perfect.
This sounds great at first, but then the reality of it strikes.
Are they ready for this relationship?
Can they match this person’s perfection?
These thoughts frighten them to an extent.
They go cold, asking themselves whether they are prepared and worthy of taking this to the next level.
Once he is certain of himself, he either decides to move forward or he chooses to back off.
Should he decide to move forward with you, you are bound to hear from him again.
If he decides not to, you won’t hear from him again.
