In my prior post, I wrote about how I was majorly crushing on a guy that I rejected years ago and that I had run into him at a wedding reception. He’s moving back to town, so I called him and asked him if he wanted to get lunch on Friday.
It was AMAZING! The second he saw me, he greeted me with a big hug and I could feel myself blush.
I hope you don’t take this the wrong way but several years ago, I was attracted to him emotionally but not physically and now it’s both. It’s like he’s completely changed bodies. He’s a total hunk now and I found myself just staring at him thinking about how dumb I was for rejecting him.
We talked just like old times. Sparks flew! However, I could tell that he was holding back a little, which made me wonder if he was thinking about me rejecting him. We both seemed to avoid talking about it. But overall, things went exceptionally well. He also wouldn’t let me pay for lunch even though I’m the one that invited him. I hope that’s a good sign!
I asked him if he wanted to hang out again sometime soon and he agreed to. However, we didn’t set up any plans so I’m not sure if he’s waiting for me to call him or if I should wait for him to call me…
But as we were leaving, I gave him a kiss on the cheek and thanked him for lunch.
Funny side note! As we were leaving, our very pretty WAITRESS wrote her phone number on the receipt with her name and a heart around it and gave it to him! lol! I didn’t say anything but I just kind of giggled.

@RN: thanks for the update! Sounds like it went well! Are you going to wait for him to call or call him? And darn that waitress, how rude!

well he must be a real hunk if the waitress wrote her number down lol. But so glad it went as good as it did. Him holding back is normal, but I’m sure you guys will pick up where you’s left off, and everyday things will be great. And soon enough things will progress. So happy for you! Give it a few days to hear from him, if not, you call him!

@RN: Glad it worked out well – so far. At this point I’d say the ball is now in his court and you should wait for him to call you (or the weird waitress, lol). 😉 If he wants to see you again he’ll let you know something soon.

@RN: Up dates please! I think it sounds like things went well. Maybe he’s nervous to get rejected again. Maybe he just got out of a relationship. Maybe he just wants to see how things go. I’m hoping for the best for you.

Its been since Friday and he hasn’t called or at least txtd you? At this point he should’ve at least txtd. I would txt him and just say it was great seeing him and you had a great time. Then see where it goes from there. Sometimes you have to take it upon yourself to make things happen. Don’t play the waiting game too long.

@Tinatiny1: I wanted to wait and see if he would call or text but he hasn’t. It’s been four days since our lunch date.
@Christina0828: I know! I couldn’t believe the waitress did that, especially right in front of me!
@jpalm13: It’s been four days. No call. No text.
@echolove: Yeah, I’m beginning to wonder if maybe he thought our lunch date was just a friend thing and didn’t realize that I’m actually crushing on him. Hmm..

@RN: I crushed on my FI for months and he never noticed, we’re talking lots of one on one hang out time. It took a couple of months of his bestfriend (a mutual friend) telling him hey I think Eckle likes you before it kinda clicked. It finally got cleared up when I straight up asked him if we were dating. According to FI guys just don’t do subtle hints, if I want him to know something I have to tell him in plain language.

@RN: That’s ok. Don’t lose hope now. Just txt him and see show he replies and where he takes the conversation. If you doesn’t engage in conversation or ask to see you again, then I say to just let it go and move on :(.

Awww I love stories like this! Good luck! And wait but not for too long. He may be wanting to see if you will contact him since he was rejected in the past? Dunno, but it would be a shame if he got away.

@Eckle: Do you think I should text him something innocent like, “Hey! I miss you!” And see how he responds? I sound crazy but I’ve been thinking about him since Friday and I want to see him again.

@RN: I think you’ve got to be kinda obvious about wanting to see him again. He might be holding back cause you rejected him, or he might just be oblivious like a lot of men. Call him, hang out, and make it obvious you’re pursuing him! 😀

@Sunfire: +1. Exactly what I was going to say. I was waiting for the part of the post that said he threw the receipt in the garbage :- Maybe he just wanted to show off his hot new body? Time will tell.

@MrsPanda99: Nah, I think he genuinely wanted to see me and hang out. But I don’t know what he did with the receipt. He had his money, receipt, and cell phone all in one hand so who knows. I sure hope he threw it away.
