I was in the university library, studying one day and this guy sat opposite me, facing me. We were both studying and I was watching a comedy video which made me laugh. We did make eye contact and smile at each other. As it was a comedy show, I was trying my best to hold in my laughter and he could see me turning red, which made him chuckle and smile at me. For the whole of two hours, we sat there, opposite each other, not saying a word, except I could tell he was looking at me and he could tell I was looking at him too. After that, he stood up and packed his things and left. Before that, we made eye contact again, smiled and nodded.
An hour later, he came back and sat exactly opposite me again. The same thing happened. We started smiling and we couldn't concentrate on studying. I could tell he was smiling at me and looking at me and he could tell that I was sneaking a peek at him too. It reminded me of one of those little cute stories. I think he could tell I was texting my friend about him and I was certain he was talking to his friend about me through text. Anyway, I had to leave so I packed my things and stood up. Just as I was about to leave, I looked at him and smiled and he passed me a note. On the note, he gave me his number and wrote 'if you're interested' on there. I texted him about 15 min after I walked out of the library. We chatted for one day but didn't say much because I had work and he had an exam to study for.
Anyway, it's been a day or two since I last replied but I texted him today to ask him how he's been. Now it's been 12 hours since that text and two days since I last heard from him. Do you think that he's playing a game with me or do you think his phone is genuinely stuffed or a good reason? And does him giving his phone number to me, necessarily bad?
Most Helpful Girl
i think guys get really excited at the idea of having a girl interested in them, and getting her number. He probably thought you (correctly) might be interested, and thought you were attractive enough to pass his number to. It was probably a huge ego boost, and piqued his curiosity, that you actually responded. Now, he's probably figuring out if he has any real interest in you or not. That doesn't make him a "player".
Many of us women, when we are attracted to a guy, tend to obsess over whether or not the guy "likes" us. We also don't want to look stupid, or feel gullible, so this becomes an attempt to have some control over the situation. In this situation I think it's too soon to know, or care, why he's not responding. You obviously liked him enough to contact him, and now he knows. I think that's a good thing. If you still interest him, he will respond, and you'll have your answer. If he decides he's no longer interested, and never responds, just shrug and move on. You don't have to feel "played".0
