DEAR HARRIETTE: I just started talking to someone new. It was going really well for a few days, and I found him really attractive. We have similar senses of style and music, two things that are very important to me, and we were both contributing to the conversation equally.
I knew the guy on social media only until he gave me his number to continue talking more intimately. I immediately added his contact and texted him, but he never responded. Wondering whether he accidentally sent me the wrong number, I DM’ed him on social media to give him my number just in case. However, he never responded there either.
I am confused because he was the one that offered his number with no prompting from me. I also thought that we were getting along well. I do not want to seem desperate, but I want to continue talking. Should I follow up with him again to see if he wants to keep talking, or should I cut my losses while I’m ahead? -- Got Ghosted
DEAR GOT GHOSTED: It’s his turn now. Sit on your hands. Do not reach out. Instead, go out and hang with friends. It’s his move.
