So I've been emailing this guy on a dating site..seems like a nice guy. I give him my number and he says he'll text me. That was last night. He has been online since then and oh yeah,he DID answer my email from last night. I said,"I look forward to it!" (him texting me) then this am he answers with a smiley face. WTH? He seems interested and instead of texting,he emails me. I don't get it!
Also,we've been trying to set a day/time to meet. Should I give in and tell him when is a good time for me,or just wait for him to text?

Okay, so you have a few possible scenarios to consider based on the possibility that he's just a regular guy:
Sometimes the guy's just goofy and forgets, then thinks "Sh*t, I forgot to call her!" and start wondering if it's too late to call you; the next day they wonder if it's too early to call you; the following afternoon they call then hang up...You hear from them within three days. All's well that ends well.
Sometimes guys are just busy. They like to show you their busy with work (a left over of the "Look, Mom, I'm riding my bike with no hands!" rush they get when they call you after a day at the ER, the station, the precinct, etc.). They like to be the big strong providers who are taking time away from their work to make you feel special and call you. NO, it DOESN'T matter if the were no urgent issues at the office to keep them occupied, no fire alarms, no felons on the loose, no business meetings to attend. When he calls or texts you, he'll have a story for you about his day, about how busy he was, and how good it is to finally have a moment to speak with you.
Sometimes guys have nothing to say when the auspicious moment is upon them. If they have nothing cool to say to you, they worry you may be bored with them and decide not to engage in the text/phone banter in the future.
Sometimes there is a technical issue and it's legit. (1) He has to catch up with you later. (2) You need to stop forgetting to recharge your battery, lol.
Sometimes guys are just jerks and promise the moon only to offer you hell.0
