???? . . . How were they swimming? When in breeding mode, one will follow the other - sort of "follow the leader" game. They will swim in a wriggly style covering the whole tank. But in fighting mode they just swim normally and if afraid will often dash away. This is why it's important that you understand this body language.

If male previously flared, and an aggressive female in fighting mode is released, they will fight. It is very unlikely the male would run away.

Since you're starting over, try a different male, a male that has a bubble nest in his solitary tank. He is more likely to be in breeding mode.

the male just swim in a straight line as fast as he could and wasn't flaring, the female was flaring and chasing against him. the female is probably in fighting mode and the male was probably tired

For this pair, relief of stress would be away from one another in their own tank. Place them in their own tank, don't let them see another fish but each other and only for 10-20 minutes a day. Let the male build up his confidence once more, let the female become more receptive to breeding. It's a lot to do with how ready/prepared the fish are when it comes to successful spawning. Not ready = no spawning and risk of injury.

This is a female who is in the middle of breeding.. notice her large belly (was bigger, but had already laid some eggs). Not shown in the picture, but she is very submissive at this point to- whenever the male comes near her she goes head down and tilts to the side. Didn't want to disturb them, but you get the idea of what the female should look like when ready to pop with eggs.
(They are in a plastic bin within the tank, plastic bin has nothing but an IAL leaf for nest anchor - the bin helps to keep them focused on one another)

Males don't usually do that. Are you sure he is a male?

Stress: Totally isolate, if possible in the dark for a few days. The longer the better. Isolation will make them more confident and will make them flare against other bettas. Before showing/flaring them to another betta, try mirrors. With mirrors . . . well the reflection won't chase the betta away. LOL. If it flares against a mirror then try other bettas. Use females as sparring partners. When you feel they are very confident, then you can other males to spar. . . Oh remember, Flare only a few minutes and color influences mentality. Don't flare them to a color they are afraid of until they have regained their confidence.
