“On our 5th date, she said she wasn’t ready for a relationship. I didn’t have the guts to ask why.”
Oh, man, you blew it. That was an excuse! You didn’t take it to the next level, you didn’t show confidence and she dumped you.
It looks like your inner algorythm is flawed. You have no idea what to do with the One. You found her and but forgot to break out of the infinite loop of:
- Find a girl
- Have a date
- Date was good? If yes, do 2. If no, do 1.
