There are so many reasons why he hasn’t texted or called. That’s not to discourage you, but rather to give you the reality that there are a number of reasons and they may not all be a bad thing.
- Maybe he’s working late and will text you after work
- Maybe he’s waiting the industry standard two days after your first date
- Maybe you’re too available…
AH, that last one caught your attention.
Look there may be plenty of legitimate reasons that are out of your control. Family issues, work stuff, or just his own fears…but the one you can control, is being too available.
Guy’s require a delicate balance. If you are too interested, you are not a challenge, and they will not feel the need to chase you. You haven’t valued yourself enough and therefore you are not a prize to be chased. By contrast, if you don’t show enough interest then he may not even think there’s a point in chasing you.
So consider this, if it’s been two days, heck, if it’s been one day and you don’t want to wait any more, force the issue. Say something like: “If you wait much longer to ask me out again, I may have to put you in the friend zone.” By pulling away, you give him a reason to state his intentions. If that feels too direct and harsh, add an emoji like the winking face emoji to soften what you’re saying into something playful.
All in all, don’t worry about it until the 4th day. At that point, he’s either super busy, not interested, or you haven’t been enough of a challenge.
