General Dating Questions/what to do


Not sure if you can give me some advice or not.

I recently met a man and we have been texting and emailing for about 3 months. He told me that he preferred this to talking on the phone as it was easier.

Initially he contacted me, but now im finding that I have to initiate contact with him ie text, emails etc. He does respond, but it would be nice if he took the lead. How do I ask him to show some initiation politely


Don't ask him to.  You shouldn't have to.  If he's into you at all you won't need to try to get him to initiate anything.  If you stop initiating and he never picks up the slack, what does that tell you?  Feelings aren't mutual.  Give it a shot and see.  Worst case scenario you learn that you don't have to waste any more time.
