    anon for obvious reasons

    Girls if you suddenly bump into a guy who there was mutual interest with a few years back and nothing came of it- you go on to swap numbers-would you wait for him to text first or would you text him.
    We swapped numbers a few days back and she hasnt got in touch- thinking of texting her

    Just text her if she's not bothering to text you. And I'd tell her the same if it was her making this thread.

    Just go for it, may aswell do it. I dont understand the whole wait this amount of time before you text seems a little silly.

    If you want to talk do it.

    I'd initially be too nervous to text first, but if I didn't hear from him in three/fours days I'd text him as I'm quite impatient as well.

    Just go ahead and text her. It's not like you've got much to lose. And I don't think this has anything to do with being male/female.

    I would wait for the guy to initiate...

    however... he started texting me but the texts were so general that i assumed he sent them to lots of people at once so i didn't reply straight away and it turns out they were just for me...

    Text her! She's probably waiting for you to do so. I'm a girl and I NEVER text first, I always wait for the guy. It's been a few days so you've avoided looking too eager but leave it any longer and she'll lose interest.

    If she didn't want to hear from you, she wouldn't have given your her number.

    I would text, otherwise you both could be waiting an awful long time for one person to make the first move :p: And if you leave it long enough, both of you will think neither of you are interested so nothing will happen again.

    Make that move!
