Why would he not call me?

Question - (30 November 2008) 4 Answers - (Newest, 7 December 2008)
A female United Kingdom age 51-59, anonymous writes:

Can anyone offer me any explanation for this please?

I met a friend of a very good friend of mine a couple of weeks ago. This guy told my friend (also a guy) that he really liked me, asked him loads of questions about me such as am I single, what do I do for a living, do I want any childre etc? He asked his friend to pass on his phone number.

I declined his number but gave him mine. My friend said that he would definitely call me as he had told him he was "up for taking me out". However, the phonecall never came.

Why would a guy not call a girl he clearly likes and has expressed interest in? I'm really confused and I would especially appreciate any male opinions on this please.

Hi both

Thank you for your answers.

Here is an update:

I waited a week for him to call but nothing. Our mutual friend agreed with your advice and suggested I sent him a text message, which I did. It just said "Hi, do you want to meet up for a drink sometime?" It's been three days now and still no reply.

I'm really disappointed and also confused as to why someone would ignore someone they say they liked.

petina1 agony auntHe's obviously shy. He asked your friend all the questions and passed 'his' number on to you for 'you' to ring him. I'd say he was very shy and darent make the first move. He is obviously interested, some of the questions he asked he sounds like he sees you as 'wifey' material. If you liked him you may have to take the first step. hope this helps.

luvy duvy agony auntSorry...I am a female, but I think he is nervous maybe even shy about what to say. I think this opinion maybe right because my male friends agree.

Don't worry. HE WILL CALL!!
