On Friday I met a boy who goes to my college, and we really clicked. We ended up spending the rest of the day together hanging out with his friends, and then we went to his house and ended up having sex.

The next day we hung out for awhile, but I had to go home, so he gave me his number and said I could text him over the spring break. He said he liked me a lot, and although he didn't specifically say where we were going from there, I'm pretty sure that was not meant to be a one-night-stand.

He's in a different city with his family for the break, so we've been texting for a bit. But now I'm nervous that I'm bothering him whenever I start a conversation, so I'm not sure if I should just wait for him to talk to me.

I guess the point of this post is to ask for advice on how to possibly keep seeing this guy. I've only been in one relationship, and it started when I was 15 and lasted for 3 years. Now I'm almost 19 and still pretty new to the dating world...so I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing haha. Thanks!

Welcome to the boards, Moon-Bandits. [Smile]

When you text him, does he SEEM bothered? And does the back and forth between you with text and other communication feel pretty balanced, per him contacting you about as often as you do him?

Thank you Heather! :-)

He doesn't seem bothered, but I was the one who first started the conversation on Saturday, and then the conversation just continued over the days and now that it's ended I'm not sure how to start another one haha

I'm really shy and he's not at all so it's hard for me to figure out what to say to him

Well, the good thing about getting to know someone in a new relationship is that you're supposed to be pretty clueless and just figuring this stuff out because, of course, you two barely know each other.

So, it's likely neither of you will yet know exactly what to talk about or what to say.

I hear you have interest in him and want to keep talking to him though: so, following that interest, what do you want to talk to him about? [Smile]
