They think the same rules apply for both men and women. If they feel smothered, they think women do too. They don't want to be "clingy", but they don't realize the woman wants to know she's not just a one night stand.

Because he's just not that interested in you.... Or he's lost your number.

Because they are players and they are being occupied by another during those two weeks....

If a guy doesnt call for 2 weeks he is probably not interested any more. Just my oppinion based on my experiences.

'Cause he knows it's driving the woman wild, making her wonder what his next move is going to be, keeping her on the edge of her seat.

dunno tbh, guessing one of the most common answers is going to be something about immaturity.

Any man who doesn't call for 2 weeks is not truly interested in that woman and is pursuing others.

I listened to the audio book "He's just not that into you" just for laughs. It's a little over the top in some areas, but I was struck by the way it truly depicted some of the exact behavior patterns I had followed when I was not "into" a girl. You may want to read that. But to answer your question; no guy who is into a girl will wait 2 weeks to call, unless he's and oddball and then you don't want him anyway.
