What should I do about this guy? I'll preface this by saying I have pretty much no prior experience, so I'm not sure about what's considered "normal" in terms of communication (FYI this is a little long)...

So, I met a guy at an event and we hit it off (no making out, but some cuddling, dancing, etc.). I gave him my number, and he contacted me the next day by text, saying we should get together. He told me Friday works for him. I was unsure if he meant in general, or if he meant this week specifically (I had answered in general before he told me about Friday), so I asked if he meant this one.
...And I received no response. Not wanting to seem "clingy" (remember, I don't really know what I'm doing), I decided to (anxiously) wait for his reply. After 3 days of nothing, I figure he changed his mind or something. I was, to say the least, annoyed (it's not so much to ask for a response, right?).
Today, I wake up and find that he's texted me again (4 days later) asking if we're good for tonight, with no acknowledgement that he received my earlier question.
Is this lack of communication normal in the dating world? Should I respond? If so, how?
One final note that might be relevant: while I was not unattracted to him, I also wasn't super attracted (part of why it was easy to hit it off - I tend to freeze up around such guys). I figured going out with him could be a good way to earn experience, but I felt guilty about thinking that way... Is this a bad reason for dating someone?
