The ball is in his court now. If he wants to see me (real date) he'll have to call me.
Great job! You didn't go into detail about your feelings and you were not available exactly at the time he wanted you. See, you can take your power back in a relationship anytime you want to. The key is not to let him know exactly what you are thinking or feeling. Once you do that, he has all the power to manipulate you.
