“Why hasn’t he called?”
This is the single most popular question from girls, but one that’s nearly impossible to answer. Every guy is different, every gal is different, every situation is different. There’s no way for us to know why your particular guy hasn’t called or asked you out or asked you again.
Still, I hate to leave you empty-handed, so here’s a handy list from our friends at Loveawake.com of possible reasons a guy might not call. Consult the list any time you think you should be hearing from a guy but don’t, and choose whichever reason(s) might apply to your situation.
