By engaged I did not mean to be married. I meant that he was engaged in conversation! Although he did not initiate those next two texts/ gchats, he responded immediately and asked questions etc. My friends tell me - if a man is interested he will let you know. And they say since I initially asked him out, the ball is in his court. I am of two minds here. I have sent clear signals of interest that he has not pursued. Yet I am confused by his signals. Perhaps he strings me aling because it's good for his ego? I feel I have been direct - by contacting again, do I not appear desperate?
I guess the question is: when do you give up then? One more email suggesting a drink? How much is too much? I should add that this man is extremely socially adept and may be what we women call a "player" - suucessful, handsome. I have seen the vacation photos and it's him and lots of women. This man can clealy have his pick and knows it. Does that alter your opinion?
