I met a cute boy at a law school function on Saturday night and after a few cocktails and dances, we ended up at a bar, just the two of us, and kissing ensued. It was lovely and he offered to walk me back to my apartment. (I insisted it wasn't necessary seeing as how we live on opposite sides of Manhattan, but the boy could not be dissuaded!) Though he never made it beyond my apartment doorway, we exchanged the cutesy "let's do this again soon" texts after he left. So now, it's Monday, and he has yet to contact me again. What gives? — Surprised Sascha

Dear Surprised Sascha,
Before jumping to the conclusion that he won't call, remember that it's only Monday and you just met two days ago — maybe he's playing by "the rules." As irritating as this answer may be, the only thing you can do is wait. Now I'm not asking you to wait patiently — I'm sure you're watching the phone as we speak! — but try to keep it all relative; Mondays can be a drag of a day; perhaps he's just busy.
If you just can't wait any longer for him to contact you, you could always make the move. As Steve Santagati put it: "It's so very provocative when a woman is strong and empowered," so tell him that you had a great time with him the other night and ask him if he'd like to get together again. If he bites, you'll know he's interested and perhaps just got tied up, but if your advance goes unreturned, you'll know to move on, which in my opinion, is far better than the guessing game. Good luck.
