I have some dating questions.

I had a coffee date yesterday with a guy I met on OKCupid. It was fine; there weren't really any sparks. He was nice and cute though so I gave him my number at the end.
He sent me a message today that he's going to call me tomorrow night, but I forgot to tell him that I HATE phones. With a fiery, burning passion. I am willing to text and talk to people face to face but I am just awful at talking on the phone, and I avoid it whenever possible.
So now I need to let him know that there's a significant chance I might not pick up the phone when he calls. There's an even bigger problem, though, that I'm not entirely sure I want to keep seeing him. He's nice, but I don't like him enough, nor am I comfortable enough with him, to add him to the short list of people I'm willing to talk to on the phone. But I gave him my number and insinuated I wanted to see him again, so now I feel stuck.
How do I navigate this well? I have (sometimes crippling) anxiety issues and I'm worried that I'm just chickening out of a nice thing.
