Tinder Confusion!

So then, very off topic but I see a few other similar questions but nothing that helped. Maybe this is more a generic issue with understanding tinder usage and general online naivety.
Basically been Iíve been more than heavy petting with a guy which started on Tinder and moved to WhatsApp. This has gone on for a couple of weeks.
Heís a Swiss guy (hence why here) so Iím not sure if itís a Swiss thing or a guy thing 🙃
So I now find myself sitting in a hotel room in Zurich and feel Iíve been cut off before playtime!
I did get drunk and overly verbose and sent a pic heíd been begging for, that was 3 days ago. So Iím probably just an idiot!
I guess the question is, should I just front and center and ask why the cold shoulder or wait it out another day, or is this a normal thing - he did know I was coming before we started talking, and some plans were suggested by him.
Is there a way a woman should behave and Iíve missed it and caused offence?

Wow, I sound desperate!!!🤣 But just want to know if to bother hanging on or look for someone else to play with.
And no, I didnít get on a flight just for that. Iím here for work for the week 🤣
Obviously the clincher will be if once I leave the country again he starts chatting to me again, then I definitely misread intentions.

Re: Tinder Confusion!

Yes, anglos come across too strong for the Swiss.
Especially ladies. This is truly a much more old fashioned country.
It's still traditional where gentlemen make the first step.
The young will say that this has changed, it hasn't really, it's still there.
Also women tend not to drink as much, so if they do it's not really approved of.

Yes and no, many men like when a girl is more forthcoming but yes it's not really "swiss"

But men flake, women flake too I've heard but I tend to date men

And it's not just swiss guys.

Well, I was just making an observation about the trust that the local banks gave to a foreign national just off the boat. But I'll take that as a compliment.

Better to hit the big banks than some poor dude trying to get laid.

Re: Tinder Confusion!

I think that the poster just invented a new, perfect word which may appear in the English dictionary:

Fruatrated

Forgive me if I'm just getting old and behind the times, but I think it's a good word (bit of Germanish, bit of English) i.e. FrŁh and the other

"More than heavy petting", to be exact. Online? Ich verstehe nicht. Maybe it's better.

So you sent him a picture of your norks or lady garden, and he then ghosted you?

Perhaps post it here, for an honest opinion of what could have spooked him.
