    Thanks to everyone who has responded. I did send the e-mail last week. (Been away from a working computer for several days otherwise would have updated sooner.) But, alas, no reply yet. I'm giving it to close of business today and then writing it off as a learning experience.

    ...but I think you should not write it off for a little while longer. What if he's as shy as you and is trying to get the courage to respond?

I have never asked anyone out on a date (always wait for them to ask) and I think its starting to hurt my chances.
    I've always been one that thinks "Nah, she wouldn't like me anyway" whenever I meet a future potential (ex) girlfriend. On the rare occasions where a girl does flirt with me, most of the time I don't even know it and figure she's just being nice. My philosophy has always been to expect the worse when it comes to relating to the opposite gender, and then when something does happen, it's a huge bonus. If nothing happens, then that's what was supposed to happen anyway.

    Answered my query. I like this guy from class and I think it's mutual because he looks back at me too. So half the time during class, we keep locking eyes. The problem is my mom is in that class too. My mom and me are taking up a new language so that's the reason I think he's hesitant to speak to me.

    I figure that I should make the first move but felt really awkward or too forward. I think I might just proceed with it. wish me luck!

    Don't forget that he could be on vacation, something wrong with the computer, etc..etc..
    I'm usually late in answering my emails cause of something. Just remember that you sent it, he got it (eventually) and the response may happen any day, at any time. Not just "by the end of the day".

    UE, maybe you could pass him a note, written in the new language you're learning, asking him to meet for coffee or something.
