I sent him the following e-mail last night:
“I had a really nice time hanging out with you earlier. I don’t know if you have a policy against dating people in your classes. If you do, I understand—but if you don’t, can I ask you out to dinner some time this weekend or next week?
“I’ll see you in class on Friday in either case.”
This both expresses my intentions clearly and gives him an easy out that allows us both to save face if, in fact, I was the only one swooning during the hour and a half we spent together yesterday.
I have yet to hear back from him. I am developing a sneaking suspicion that he is not an obsessive e-mail checker, which is not a good sign.
Because then he might actually be a healthy and well-adjusted person, and where would I be then?
