I've known this guy for about a year. Well, I say I've known him, but that's not actually the case, I've just seen him regularly but we'd never talked, ever.
But, a few weeks ago, I decided to make conversation because I did fancy him. That one conversation was more than I thought it would be, he talked SO much and I was really happy with how it had worked out.
We've been texting since then but he's really delayed with the replies - and by delayed I mean maybe every 4 days or so.
Sometimes the conversation just ends because he doesn't reply at all...
We've arranged to meet twice but both times he's has to cancel because of other plans. (A friend's party and the recent time due to getting a new Saturday job)
On Monday I did just text him and ask straight up what exactly was going on and tell him how I felt. I explained how I have to initiate everything (which he says is due to him being "a really really shy guy") and how we're not really going to get anywhere if he doesn't reply to texts or cancel if we arrange to meet up.
His response was mainly that he's extremely shy (I must admit, the 'I'm shy' excuse is getting old now)
and that "I guess we just need to get to know each other asap :P and see where it goes from there
When he said this, I was obviously pretty happy because he's said that he does want to get to know each other and his intentions somewhat seem similiar to mine.
Though, if he chooses to not reply to my texts, how does he expect this to happen?!
As I said, this was on Monday. Since that night, I've received no replies. (he said he doesn't like to text and doesn't actually use his phone much) which is fair enough but you must check your phone atleast once in a whole day, right?
Anyway, I just wanted some opinions. Despite me starting to really
like this guy now, should I just forget about it?
Or should I 'accept' that he's shy and doesn't like to text much etc and just wait....?
