The Typical Guy Story

Just got caught up with my West Coast sister.. and she told me a guy story that I've seriously heard many times over from various women. Here is the often repeated scenario- guy and girl meet. Guy and girl go on 2 dates... girl feels there's a serious connection and thinks he feels it too. Girl is savvy, has dated before and can recognize said connection. A few days pass, and girl hears absolutely nothing from this guy so she finally leaves him voice mail/ text/ email/IM. Doesn't hear back and is left completely confused but mostly annoyed that if the guy wasn't into her, he didn't have the balls to say something. Instead, left her hanging. Please, SOMEONE explain this to us ladies.. How many women have experienced this? Why? Why can't men "man up?"
