Okay, I'm anxious and I don't know the rules -- How long until this guy can allow himself to call me?

you need to put in the info on the game being played. If it's dating then I think there are no rules and you just got to follow your heart.

I'm unsure how long it takes for a guy to call someone. It's been so many years since I've had a date. I would be patient. I know you are anxious, but hang in there. I'm sure you will hear from him in the near future.

I have no ideas what the "rules" are but give him time. He also might be anxious. This is new for him too. Give him time.

I do have to say I am single though so these are just my thoughts.

Zadie,

I'd give it at least 3 days, otherwise he might think that he is looking desperate. If you don't hear in three days then start to worry. Maria

So, Monday+

I'm just so confused because he's such a catch -- Yeah I wonder What in the world does he see in me?

(I know I know, Get some self-esteem already . . . .)

The 3-day grace period is coming to a close and he still hasn't contacted me. I know he's busy, but what is going on in his mind? Sometimes I just don't GET men. Why ask for my phone number, give me a hug and a kiss on the cheek, and then not call me? I have little experience in the dating world, so I'm freaking out and so very confused. I'm used to isolating and probably lack some crucial social skills.

Help!

I haven't dated in a long time but sometimes they call and sometimes they are just being polite when they ask for the number. I wouldn't worry, he may call yet. It's only Monday. Maybe he didn't want to appear desperate.

Why would he kiss me on the cheek if he wasn't going to call? What kind of strange male behavior is THIS?!? Arghhhhhh!!! Why do people play games like this??? I can't play this push-pull game.

Maybe give it another day due to the long weekend. I don't know why guys have these rules of dating, but a lot do. I googled it for you.

Glad I'm not even bothering to look at the moment. Good luck and I hope he calls soon!!! Maria
