There's a guy I've been interested in for a year now, but I never pursued it because we had a "falling out" a year ago as I was just ending an LTR & wasn't in the best "frame of mind"..He prob took it as game playing, but truthfully I WAS interested in him but I didn't handle it the right way (we we're not intimate or anything like that). We've rarely spoken since, I'd run into him when out but we'd just make small talk, smile, etc., that's about it. I did sense @times he wanted to approach me but I wasn't 100% sure so I just left it alone.
Now, he recently sent me an email asking how I've been, & I responded the following day but have not heard back since (it's been about 4-5 days now). My email was very casual, I asked how's he's been, asked a few general questions, said it was nice to hear from him, I was surprised by it but it was nice nonetheless and I ended it saying "hopefully we'll talk soon".
I have to admit, I am feeling cautious as to why he's emailed me after all this time & wonder what his intentions are. I would like to establish a friendship & hopefully take it from there but I'm unsure as to what I should do next..Should I wait for him to contact me again or send a follow-up email (I don't have his phone # anymore so I'm left w/email). I don't want to appear too aggressive yet @the same time I want to shoe him I AM interesed...Any suggestions???
Wendy, by the way....nice name....i am a Wendy too. I say go for it and send him a follow up email. Obviously he must be interested in you if he took the time to email you out of the blue. I would send him a follow up email and just suggest that you dont have a full schedule this weekend (or whenever is convenient for you) and simply ask him if he would like to get together since it has been awhile since the two of you have talked and just "catch up" on things. I would also include your phone number. Then i would just leave it at that. You wont sound desperate and if he is interested he will contact you and set up a date. Good Luck!!!!
Well, I've been doing some thinking and I'm thinking maybe there's a slight chance he emailed me by mistake and if that's the case I would feel like an idiot emailing him a 2nd time.
I say this because he emailed me through a dating website, and although there were 2 pics of me, my name, age, location (which he knows all about), maybe there's a SLIGHT possibility he did not know it was me. I can't see how that's possible but you never know, right?
