Ok, so I'm going to try keeping this as brief as possible but there was this one guy in the first group party I attended and I danced with him a few times. In the next group party he kept wanting to dance with me and although I cannot give an exact number, I think it was at least 4 or 5 times which I guess is normal in an hour and a half but I started getting bored of dancing with him. I'm new to dancing so I might not be used to this but he was continually staring into my eyes during the Latin dances and I found that very awkward and started looking in another direction instead. I know that there needs to be eye contact but is there an extent to how much eye contact is needed in Latin dancing? I'm trying to give more eye contact with my dance instructor as he said it is something that should be done in Latin and although I'm a lot more used to him because of the months he has instructed me; I cannot help but laugh whenever I look him in the eyes. Anyway, by coincidence the guy happens to live in the flat right opposite mine and sees me coming out of my building. He says hi and asked for my phone number and I did not see that coming. I hesitated for 5 seconds but saw him with his phone out and was ready to dial it in so I didn't want to be rude and was completely taken a back from this so while giving the number I was contemplating, giving him a fake number while giving him my correct one and I guess while doing this it sounded like I gave him the full phone number when in fact there were still two numbers missing but when he said nice number, I just left it at that without correcting him. So, the next party comes up and he comes up to me and asked me whats up with the phone number so I pull him aside and tell him that when he asked for my number I didn't want to be rude and in all honesty I didn't know him that well and was not comfortable giving him my number. Which is true because I literally said no more then 2 or 3 sentences to the guy and he just asks for my phone number. I rambled a bit and he said it was fine that was that but I guess I made it more awkward as I was too embarrassed to say hi to him at the next group party and didn't dance with him once. I also just saw him now in the area but didn't exactly spot him till he passed me into the other direction as I was talking to someone else and he didn't say anything. The old me would have been very rude to him and would have hoped he would have just gotten the hint which turned out to be a horrible tactic as it makes you look horrible because it is such a mean thing to do. I have been really trying to work on that though. In my perspective, I think a guy wants a little more than friendship if he asks for your phone number after exchanging a sentence or two. With girls, it is different unless they are interested in a non platonic way. Girls would more likely want to just have someone in dance to chat to about group classes and whether you are going to this one or that one and perhaps ask if you might want to shop together. If it was a guy I was attracted to, I think I would consider giving him my number if there was a chance that he liked me back but I do not see why I should lead some guy on if he would most probably want something more than friendship when I do not feel the same. At the end of the day, I attend the group parties and classes because I really want to improve my dance skills and if I happen to make a friend or two; that would just be a bonus. I said I would try keeping this brief but as you can see, brief is clearly not in my dictionary. I hope I did not come across as too shallow or vapid. I honestly meant well and if you have actually read until the end my question is, should I go up to him and say something? What do you think I should do or say? the guy lives in my area so I don't want to have any awkward moments while running my daily errands. Thanks for listening guys and your advice is greatly appreciated I also acknowledge that I made things worse and awkward by not saying hi to him although I spotted him. I'm sure if I just said hi, things could have lightened up a bit. I'm also sorry if I posted this in the wrong thread!
