this dude is kinda shy. we stayed friends, plenty of classes together. I take initiative and invited him out. he got really excited, we mapped out plans, and picked a day.
he said he'll call when he got done work so we could meet up and NOTHING. I waited and waited (we texted earlier in the week too, after plans were made). he never gets back to me so I say "thanks for letting me know what's up. if you didn't want to hang, you could've just said so." he responds back with a "i'm sorry, I'm dealing with something from home and it slipped my mind" I don't believe him because I've invited him out once before and he flaked, acting like nothing happened.
what do you think?

That really sucks. It seems like he's either got really bad luck with things happening to him, or he just doesn't want to hang out and is too afraid to say so.
I figure if he was really looking forward to it, it wouldn't have slipped his mind. But then again, if something did happen, you don't know how severe it was and it really could have slipped his mind. Maybe you can ask him what happened and if everything's alright?
Anyways, you've tried twice already and he's bailed both times. Don't ignore him, but let him be the one to initiate contact next time. Even if it was just a friendly night out, it seems pretty uncool that he wouldn't at least let you know that he's unable to make it.1
