Online Dating & Mixed Signals.


We all know that the online dating world can be confusing, but I've got an rather confusing problem here:

I messaged this guy about a month back and for about the past month/six weeks or so we've been regularly messaging each other, each with pretty long messages.  I eventually asked for his email address and IM, so we could talk more easily, rather than through the site.  He responded positively, and gave me both.  So I've sent him off an email about ten days ago, and I've yet to hear back.

So basically, should I give up?  I know school exams/holidays would keep him busy.  Then again, why would he give me several ways to reach him if he had no intentions of continuing communications with me?

Any help/reassurance for me?

It's tough to guess what he could be thinking, and yes it's very possible that he got really wrapped up in other things.

But honestly, if he can't spare time to respond to you then I don't think he deserves you :)

Have you messaged him online since then? Maybe he didn't get your e-mail?
What about IM? Has he been online and hasn't talked to you?

Although I do think that if he were really interested he's take the time to contact you too, if it's been that long since you guys last talked.

He hasn't been on IM or on the dating website since he last sent me the message.

I think I'll wait until the New Year, and then start messaging others!
