A colleague and fellow scholar contacted me about getting together on what seemed like a quasi date. I say quasi because it was a professional event to which he was buying the tickets.
At the last moment I let him know that I couldn’t keep the date because of a family emergency, and that I wouldn’t be meeting him outside the event space.
I’ve since tried several times to connect with him, because I would really like us to spend time together. However, he is not answering my emails.
I’ve now sent him two suggesting we meet up. In both I apologized for being a no-show.
How long do I wait before contacting him again. Should I even keep trying?
