Deafening silence.

He hasn't rung yet. AAARGH. People say girls are indecisive but this is just ridiculous, and cruel.

Hurry up pale bachelor man, hurry up and ring me to tell me that I can hand over all my worldly goods in return for your house that smells of old sheets. If you don't ring soon I may have expired from frustration and then the offer will be no more.....

Why not ring him and remind him? Tell him that there's another property that's caught your eye but just wanted to get an update from him. Worth trying?

Hi! Thanks for stopping by at Singletude! Very entertaining blog you have! By coincidence, I also just blogged on house hunting the other day.

My guess is that this guy is having a more difficult time than he thought settling things with his seller, leaving him in limbo. He can't offer the place to you till he knows he has someplace to go. Of course, it is possible that he got a better offer in that time but not likely.

In any case, I hope the house will be yours any day now! Good luck!

I'm with Home Office Mum on this - is phoning him to remind him an option? I know we had to do that with our current house. Do what you feel is best. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Yeah.....you ring him. Its not like you are looking for an ongoing relationship!
Am recrossing fingers and toes!

Oh, how exciting, house buying. And terrifyingly nerve-wracking (or is it wrecking? I can never remember). Just stumbled over here, mid your anxious waiting. I hope that it all falls into place. In fact, I'm sure it will x

Absolutely - ring him. Unlike dating - with ridiculous unsaid rules/expectations, with buying a house you can be forthright and pushy to seal the deal!

How exciting.

This guy seems creepily reminiscent of Willam Trevors' Mr. Hilditch. DO NOT be alone with him.

Yep, ring him. No rules, no chance of seeming over pushy. He has something to sell - you want to buy it. Doesn't sound like it would be a protracted peace process style negotiation.
Do so hope you get it!

Your house-and-occupant description reminds me of eery Victorian novels! I am also highly entertained by the the metaphor of dating that is developing here!

Go Welsh Girl, go. My dog's legs are even crossed in your favor. I think she might be dreaming of running the pale sheet-smelling bachelor man out of the house for your sake...!
