Even though this blog is geared toward to a male audience, I thought atleast one article addressing a common issue women face is in order since it’s quite an easy question to answer. I see a lot of women and men(?) writing what the possible reasons for why a guy asks for number but never text. It never stops amaze me how much mental gymnastics is possible. The answer is very straight forward and you might not like hearing it:
He’s just not that into you. 99% of the times, this is the sole reason why he never bothered to text. Once in a while it will be because he either lost your number, he got back to his ex, or he suddenly found the love of his love so all other women are invisble to him.. etc. All the reasons that doesn’t fall under “he’s just not that into you” are far fetched.
Now I know what the hell you’re thinking: But if a guy is not that into a girl why on earth did he flirt and ask for her number?
Well for the most part guys are a lot easier to read and straight forward with their thinking and actions than women. Sorry to generalize… but unfortunately guys can be confusing too sometimes. There are number of reasons why a guy does this:
It’s not just women’s judgement that gets clouded after a few drinks. Guys will also do stuff that they regret under the influence of alcohol. Suddenly a woman that isn’t that appealing might be worth it and the guy goes “why not?” after he sobers up the next day and realizes he wasn’t all that attracted to that girl from last night he deletes/forgets about the number. I would say this is the number one reason why this happens.
I’ve been in this situation myself. I try to really avoid asking for number if I have no plans to continue to make advances. But I’ve been kinda put in the spot, I remember a specific night where I was out, kinda of a boring night and the girl nexts starts chatting me up. I have a fun time and talk with girl for 30 minutes and finally the bar closes up. At this point I’ve had a nice conversation with a woman I’m not that all physically attracted to and she basically starts awkwardly stare at me by the end of the night waiting for me to ask her for her number. Out of politeness I asked for the number and never bothered contacting her. In hindsight, what I did was wrong I should have just thanked for our nice conversation and head home.
To sum this article up, it’s very likely that dude who asked for your number but never texted was just not that into you. That’s pretty much it.
