Cute Guy

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I met this really cute guy on an activity holiday I was on 2 weeks ago. We became really good friends and at the end of the week we exchanged e-mail addresses. I e-mailed him over a week and a half ago. It's driving me crazy waiting for his reply. What should I do?

    If you got his phone number, then ring him on the premise that you are checking to see if you wrote his email address down correctly. If you didn't get his number all you can do is send him another email saying you hope this one gets to him.

    If you still don't get a reply I'm afraid you will have to assume that, for him, it was just a holiday thing <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">.

    I suppose there are other possible explanations though, maybe his computer is down? Or maybe your return path is up the pictures? Whatever, good luck.

    some people check their email like every 2 wks or so. i reckon its just me who checks mine like 5 times a day <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/redface.gif"&gt; im a cyber geek <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/eek.gif"&gt;

    There's a girl in my mirror
    I wonder who she is
    Sometimes I think I know her
    Sometimes I really wish I did

    yeah drifter you could be right, he just might not have got it yet. i check mine every 3 mins, im worse than you drifter! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    britchick, guys tend to be useless at communication, i didnt believe they were all the same but more and more that seems to be the case! he could be waiting a while to look cool or something if he HAS read it... or like j9 said, he might be having technical probs.

    i guess after a few more days of nothing, you could email him again and say that youve been having a few probs with your computer and you werent sure if your emails were getting through, coz some of your friends hadnt been getting them off you or something like that... then it doesnt look like you're too desperate! and if he still doesnt reply, then i guess all you can do is try and forget about him and move on, just remember what you had on your holiday and find someone else. you never know, he might email back in a while, really apologetci about something or other! but try not to get your hopes up too much.

    good luck though <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Like the others say, there may be a perfectly ordinary reason - maybe the message wasn't delivered or he's been busy ..... once when a guy didn't mail me for nearly four months and then got back in touch, it turned out he'd nearly died from meningitis.

    But then again I've never heard from a guy I met on holiday when we'd swapped e-mail addresses, so it's not definite that he'll reply.

    My advice would be to try and put it to the back of your mind, then if he replies it'll be a nice surprise for you, but if he doesn't you'll be able to concentrate on other things.
