I need a bit of advice. I went out

I need a bit of advice.

I went out on a simple coffee date with a guy from school (I introduced myself originally, and he asked me out). I thought things went wonderfully well, we were both pretty nervous, he was nearly stuttering from being nervous/shy, smiling a lot, lots of eye contact, body language, that whole thing.

Now, he knew I was busy for a bit with a test I had, so at the end of the date he goes "oh you're busy for a while then? Drop me a email then..."

I did drop him an email saying I had a nice time and let's do it again - that was over a week ago now, and my test is over - and no reply. Should I bother sending him another one? Or is it safe to assume he's not interested? I really like this guy and I honestly thought he was definitely interested, he gave me no reason to suspect otherwise.
Sorry for the long post...

  • Maybe you got the wrong email address? It happens. Or maybe he did have a change of heart. You'll never know. Try to confirm that you have his correct email address. Or get his phone number and call him. Or better yet, talk to him in person if possible, without looking desperate of course, and mention if he received your email. You'll never know until you communicate with him. It would be a shame if it was just some misunderstanding or miscommunication. But if he's not interested, I think you need to find that out in a tactful way. Best wishes.

  • Oh drop the 'If he doesn't get back to me' games. You KNOW he was painfully shy and might be terrified that you didn't have a good time and never want to talk to him again. And s**** the email. Its a lousy way to communicate. Pick up the phone, or engineer a meet with him.

    He might be giving you space so you can relax after you finished your studies. Or he may be in the same pinch you were a week ago.

    I'd say just go see him and say you had a good (or great) time. He asked you out last time. Try and do it for him. It'll certainly show that you are interested. He may be slow on the uptake naturally.
