Wow, from four followers to 59. Amazing! I definitely feel motivated to write.
I know I’ve really been on a relationship sort of theme lately, but seriously, why do guys do some of the things that they do? I don’t understand the rationale sometimes, and I know women like to attribute certain actions to a guy “just being a guy,” but really? I’d like to believe that men aren’t really that simple or predictable.
I don’t know if I just get too hopeful when I meet someone, or maybe I’m just not yet jaded, but it’s not like I create high expectations that no one can meet. If we’re both feeling it, we’re talking and texting multiple times a day, and you start sending me messages telling me that you’re thinking about me, that I’m so whatever you think I am, et cetera, is it really that surprising that a subsequent silence would make me confused?
Yes, yes, you’re so great, blah blah blah blah, I can’t stop thinking about you, yadda yadda, I can’t wait to see you again, woh woh… silence… really? It’s like you’re putting in the leg work to seal the deal and then you forgot to actually cash in on the deal.
What is that? Is that L.A.? Is that one of those “wait for it” kind of moments? I don’t get it, and I don’t think that I really have time to figure out the Rubix cube that is this reasoning. I’m not one of those girls that will wait by the phone. If I stop hearing from you, I’ll assume you lost interest and moved on, and I’ll do the same. Why then does the guy get confused because I’ve moved on? Am I expected to pine over someone who no longer sees a reason to contact me? If nothing else, I’m a creature of consistency.
Some gals might think I’m giving guys too much credit, by thinking that interaction can be more than just a game, but I just know that SOMEone out there has to understand what I’m saying. You worked hard for the deal… why are you walking away?
*Brief aside: Yes, I’m a writer. And, yes, I am currently working on a book that chronicles some extremely amusing dating adventures experienced by myself and by others I know, because sometimes it’s just too funny not to share. Names and circumstances will be altered to save the dignity of all of those involved.
