Son is quite shy but met a girl at the weekend and got talking, swapped numbers and got a text so replied, this went on over a few day with text getting from the girl getting more and more frequent, son got a bit worried and stopped answering but they kept coming for a while, son is not worried about seeing girl again as she clearly likes him a lot more the he likes her but he does not want to hurt her feeling by saying she read too much in to a chat and a swapping of numbers. He is 19 BTW.

not silly at all! the girl is being silly - she shouls have a bit more pride than to chase a boy around like that(she should read "The Rules")

This sounds familiar to a thread I read the other day...only with a 'shoe on other foot' twist

Sorry, but I don't see how stopping replying to texts without any explanation is "lovely". Surely "lovely" would be to be straight with her? Just ignoring her texts and leaving her wondering what's going on isn't lovely, is it? Or am I missing something?

well her feelings are less hurt by him actually having the courage to say "don't read anything into me texting I don't have time for a girlfriend" or something straight like that, than they are from being blanked and ignored when you were having a 'conversation' by text

Just stopping replying is not going to stop her feelings being hurt, is it? She would be quite entitled to think he was interested if he gave her his number.
