A female United States age 41-50, *lvin'sGirl writes:

Did the internet dating site. Met a nice guy and went out to lunch. After a lunch of about 2 hours, we walked around for 2 hours just talking. I emailed him the next day, then he emailed me back. I emailed once more - that was a week ago. No word from him. We got along so well, had similar backgrounds, liked a lot of the same stuff. What went wrong? I can only surmise he is enjoying his new hobby - internet dating. Do I wait a month or two and then call to see if he is still interested? I am still in shock I haven't heard from him...

I hate to tell you this but if he was interested he would be calling you. This is not a grey area. Men who are interested pursue the woman that they want. If he did not iniate further contact after the in person meeting, let it go. Just accept that for whatever reason (and it doesn't matter) you are not his "type" no big deal. There are other men in the world, don't obsess over this one.

AskEve agony auntYou have taken the initiative both times since you met each other by emailing him first. Slow down and let HIM make the next move. He may really like you but feels it's all going a bit too fast. He may feel a bit overwhelmed by it all, he may have decided you're not for him. You just have to be patient though.

Don't email him again for at least 2 weeks until he sorts his head out. If you don't hear from him up till then, drop him a quick email to say you guess things didn't go as well for him as they did for you and you hope he'll meet the right person next time.

Yes, better to give it some more time to see if you hear from him, and if you don't you could try calling - just once.

Disappointing when you had a good time and got on so well, but, you never know if he's busy, out of town, dating others, etc. But hopefully you will hear from him.

Good luck!
