Hi! Just looking for opinions here
I met this guy a month ago at a social gathering and, although I didn’t expect anything, we ended up talking and he asked for my number. We live in two different countries (only 1 hour plane ride though). We text each other intensely for 3 weeks and on the fourth week he asked me for a drink and to go for an outdoor activity. He proposed many plans for us to do during these period of times. He still text me intensely after those dates and he recently went for a holiday with his grad school colleagues. I haven’t heard from him for around a week and I wonder if it is ok if I text him first? It is a sign of fading interest from his side? (He’s already back from his holiday by now).

I think since you have spent so much time with him, it is okay to text him. You may have your answer after that as to whether or not he is fading.

At this point you’re fine to text him first if things have been going so well. Good luck!

Thank you so much everyone for the advice! I texted him and he didn’t reply for a couple of days and apparently he got very ill from the trip and he apologized for not texting me back early. He even took the step to explain his condition right now (very detail). I was so glad that you guys advised me to texted first.
I think I am going to give him some space to recover and not looking for him first ? or should I show more care? (I wonder if guys would see this as being clingy or needy)

He may just be really busy, or may even feel like he needs a small breather–but after all this time there’s nothing wrong if you text him at this point.
hippieswag1ParticipantMarch 22, 2016 at 8:13 pm #96236
if you want too, text him first, but not all the time
littlePrincessParticipantMarch 22, 2016 at 10:49 pm #96238
Go for it!
newbieParticipantMarch 27, 2016 at 12:16 am #96560
Maybe he’s just busy, not fading interest.
Hunter17ParticipantMarch 27, 2016 at 12:41 am #96562
Well sometimes boys do like when girls text first. It is okay to text first.
look82ParticipantMarch 27, 2016 at 5:21 am #96568
I agree you’re fine to text him.
abbmarParticipantMarch 31, 2016 at 3:54 pm #96897
I say text him. If he doesn’t respond – than you’ll know where you stand.

I think guys think it’s refreshing when a girl actually reaches out first, as long as it’s not too overbearing! For once they don’t have to do all of the work
