    Should I contact him or not?

    I had arranged a date with this guy, who cancelled our first date due to illness and then said he would make it up to me and drive down (the drive is about an hour and a half) After a few days I asked when he would be coming and he said hes away this weekend and when hes back, he will figure out a day. I got defensive at this point and thought to myself, is he just putting this off again because he’s not bothered. So I politely said that not to worry, he obviously doesn’t want to so lets leave it and have a great weekend away. He never responded, its been a week and now I am slightly gutted I never got to go on a date with him. Now I’d like to say Im realistic and that if he really did want to see me he would have responded so better to know now but there is a part of me that is telling myself that my response was dramatic and out of the blue so he probably thought best not to respond. From an outside perspective, is my first feeling right that he didn’t want to or should I apologise?

    I would give it another try, if not the answer is there.

    Give it another try, so that you know at least you’ve tried.

    Your question didn’t say where you met him, which I think factors in here. My experience in a situation like this has two different answers. Once, I was asked out by a brunch bartender I had known for about a year. He disappeared pretty soon after he asked me out, but had a valid excuse. We ended up having quite a few nice dates. So, if you met in person, give him one more chance. Conversely, I was speaking with a guy online and he just kept bailing at the last minute/refusing to make plans. I got the idea that he was not who he said he was and that was why he didn’t want to meet in person. If he’s an online guy, just write him off– he’s not worth your time.

    Atleast try. The worst that can happen is you won’t hear back, which is already happening.
