Emailing a guy friend: Should I ingore him and make him wait for me?

Question Posted Thursday April 4 2013, 11:53 pm

If I ignore a guy for like a week and have not herd from him because he's always busy with work and never has time to really talk. When he finally does email, shouuld I ignore it a couple of times or should I only answer back on the emails he gives me. Also should I wait a while before responding. usually I answer right away. My age is 31 and I'm female.

You are way to old to be playing hard to get.

It's not respectful, and it's not honest.

If you want to pursue something with this guy, give him the benefit of doubt, and actually work on developing something with him.

Unlike the teenagers who have answered you, I know that sometimes adults get really busy, or have work schedules that aren't always conducive to dating.

That doesn't necessarily mean he's not into you. If he can be affectionate, respectful and honest with the time he does have with you, he might be a great guy.

So, contact him when you want too, when you have something to say.
Respond to emails he sends you (that's just the decent thing to do) don't worry about 'right away'. Respond when you have the time to respond the way you want too.

Do not ignore him. If you like him, and want to communicate with him and spend time with him, one of the ways you are honest about that desire, is to NOT ignore him.

If you feel ignored, or neglected, bring that up.
If you feel you are more into him than he is into you, talk about it.
If you want more from the relationship, more certainty, more commitment, more time, ask for it.

If you just aren't that into him - because you can't get enough time with him - then end it.

But don't play games. Be honest and respectful towards him, and he is more likely to treat you the same way no matter how busy he is.

Well if he's just busy with work and that's what is keeping him from emailing, then I would just respond to the emails he sends you.
It'd be a different story if he wasn't busy with work and had more time to talk.

Why are you talking to a guy who is "too busy" to talk or email? I'd ignore him, because it sounds like he really doesnt seem committed or interested
