Hello, Nyssa! I think it's worth trying to get in touch with your biological father. You're 22, so I think you can handle the situation with more strength and maturity than you would at, say, 12 years old. =P You could end up developing a wonderful relationship with your father... or the first meeting could end disastrously. It's scary, now knowing which way it's going to go; however, I still think it's worth trying.

If you decide to e-mail him, I think it would be good to keep the message short and sweet. "Hello, (his name). My name is Nyssa, and based on what I've recently discovered, I believe that you might be my biological father. I was wondering if you would be willing to meet with me. I would like to hear back from you, regardless of whether or not you would like to meet with me."

It doesn't come across as overly mushy (neither did your first e-mail), but you'd be making it clear that you'd like to hear back from him. It would suck to be left hanging, never knowing whether or not he read your e-mail. =/
