A scenario for both men and women.
You’ve met a person who has given every impression of being nuts about you, and better yet, they seem reliable. So far he/she has called you when they said they’d call, met you when and where they said they would. (No physical intimacy yet, but some pleasant kissing and hand-holding.) UNTIL NOW.
They were supposed to call today, and you rushed home from work as usual to get the call. But no call yet. Well, they’ve been late before, no biggie. An hour passes. Two hours pass. The whole evening passes. No call. It’s tomorrow already: no call. As usual when this happens, you temporarily feel unattractive and depressed and think that if your hand were another person it wouldn’t love you either.
You rack your brain for possible explanations:
A) An emergency of some sort happened to your love. You should be worried about them, not yourself.
B) You messed up. You said or did something to make them blow you off. You replay everything you’ve done or said and end up no more enlightened.
C) You didn’t necessarily mess up, but your love got nervous about the budding relationship and decided avoidance was the most convenient policy.
D) Quite simply, they forgot. They’ll call you later. You hope.
E) For some reason or another, they didn’t make the call, and now they’re too embarrassed to call again, thinking you’ll be mad.
F) Quite simply, they’re being self-centered and cruel.
Calling them is not an option! Because:
A) The bastard/bitch doesn’t deserve it. You’re too proud. You don’t want to seem needy or desperate.
B) They never gave you their number, you only gave them yours.
C) You call, and there’s no answer, they’re away or else screening and not picking up.
In the near future, you will:
A) Do nothing. You’re too proud. You don’t want to seem needy or desperate.
B) Are you crazy, you’re not throwing away your first chance at romance in two years! You are going to track this mutha down, apologize for anything you might have done and throw yourself at him/her!
C) Are you crazy, you are nobody’s doormat! You are going to track this mutha down and give him/her a piece of your mind!
D) Buy and take home a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. All for you, and it can’t run away. snif
If you do see this person again, you will:
A) Express delight and exclaim, “Darling! I was so worried!”
B) Express coolness. “Hey, that’s cool. Want to go out again?”
C) Express polite asssertiveness. “Nice to see you. Don’t say you’re going to call if you’re not going to call.”
D) Express anger. You’re not forgiving them, and at the moment you don’t care if being unforgiving has ended some of your previous relationships.
E) Walk right past this person and try to pretend you never knew them.
