Any confusion you’ve been experiencing over someone else’s intentions is frustrating, but it’s also a totally normal part of getting to know someone, so don’t worry too much about it. When you allow yourself to have some doubts here and there, you’ll immediately get more comfortable with things and start to see them more clearly. You may have been attracting some flighty people lately, but this person probably isn’t one of them, despite any recent misunderstanding.
You know that talk is cheap, and with some people, it’s definitely worth less than others. You may need to politely excuse yourself from some online or in-person conversations.
An issue that pops up now is only as big a deal as you allow it to be. Think about your reaction rather than just letting it be a knee-jerk one. How much does this really mean to you?
If not having a good day is some kind of omen about the future, then be in charge. Connect with others, take in some art, do some creative writing — anything short of a witch dance to ensure future money.
