How long do I wait to hear from him?

So I met this really nice guy at a bar/pub last Friday, and I really thought we hit it off. He approached me, and even had a wingman gauge my interest before he talked to me (really cute). Our conversation was great, and I was so excited that he asked for my number. After he left, he texted me before the night was over saying it was nice to meet me and he hoped that I had a good night. Well today is Wednesday, and I haven't heard from him since. I know it's too soon to make any assumptions, but I really like him, and I wish he'd call me! Any advice?

I'd give him a week to call, but I'd also try not to dwell on it. If he doesn't call, it's no big deal. If he does, then it will be a nice surprise! Did he give you his number?

TELL ME ABOUT IT! Sometimes I think showing less interest gets them to call you sooner, if at all... I'm the last person to give advice but I can totally relate :/ my uber honest blog says it all too...

I would say, if you actually are interested, you make the move and call him (don't text - that's easy to get a reply from) and see what he's up to and that you're around and available - it puts the ball in his court and let's him know you are interested - then if he doesn't call back, screw him - he doesn't know what he wants yet...

In my opinion the worst place to meet a guy for anything other than sex is a bar. He asked for your number and text messaged you before the night is over... now multiple days later nothing? Sorry hun but if you read this response and he still hasn't called/texted it's because he was drunk or it was the beer that made him interested. If he hasn't contacted you move on and don't make too much of men being interested in you if you meet in a bar.
