I wouldnt trust any guy that says im the right girl for him and wants to be with me after so few days. Or maybe he is really socially ackward but i would stay away.

What kind of doctor is he? Where does he work? Are you sure he is telling you the truth?
It can be only one Dr.....

So, in the end what did you decide, OP? He has some controlling tendencies, would that suffice to put you en garde?
No one is asking to have a "relationship" after the first date.
I want news.
He proposed to meet me either on Wednesday or Thursday and said we could go for a drink. I expected to hear some concrete and solid plan from here like where, when, which do you prefer...blablabla...

Unfortunately, he didn't say anything. I tried to imply him of that, but still no concrete answer. His answer was more like I would do blablabla, but no actions involved. I said goodbye to him and deleted his contact. He blamed me a bit and blocked my whatsapp, and unblocked it again several hours later.

This man plays me like a guitar and now I have moved on.

He tried, but it only lasted as long as you were prepared to be his toy. Bravo for standing up for yourself!

If you deleted him from your contacts, how do you see him on WhatsApp? If I delete people, I DELETE them. No sneaking back to look.

It depends on how stunning OP is.

Sorry, OP, that it didn't work out but it seems better this way?

To my mind, anyone still accepting and then actually reading, messages from a person with whom they, in theory, no longer wish to communicate, hasn't learned the first part of the lesson yet.

Please don't tell him when you will be leaving your apartment or arriving home, and please don't let him into your apartment until you have solid proof that he is who he says he is.
And even then....

Assuming the OP is legit, the guy she described totally set off my creep-o-meter big time!

EDIT: OP I am glad you ran!!!

I dont know why you judge people like that... We had a bad time in communicating, so I did my own stuff a bit (brush my teeth) then he unblocked me again after I came back. I deleted him later.

Why are you in a hurry to judge me? Is it so urgent for you that I delete this person immediately????

Re: Is this swiss man interested

Oh, I didn't take Longbyt to be judging you, not at all. I understood her post to be written out of her cumulative experience of watching how people do, and don't, break off contact with other people.

Some people stop contact by moving out of one particular communication medium. Others, who want an absolute stop, block all methods with which the person might reach them. It is, of course, your choice.

I read the first couple of words of your post above and concluded immediately that the guy is a complete whacko...

Moral of the lesson, read the whole of the first paragraph before starting to form an opinion!

Yep, I think your groan for Longbyt was a bit unwarranted, happydog.
