Dating and frequency of communication
And I seem to have two left feet, which is not good for Twister. When I don't hear back from a message, it leaves me wondering, “Am I expecting too much, or is he simply not interested?
” When I start dating someone I really like, I want us to be texting one another frequently.
Then texting had to come along and change the game entirely.
What was once a composed game of chess is now more like a chaotic round of Twister. Anyhow, it seems silly to think about, but the more I do, I realize that a lot of turmoil in the early stages of dating has come from a lack of what I believe is necessary daily communication.
He just might have successfully strung me along for the sex.
It wouldn’t be the first time this has happened to me, but I was so sure at this point in my life that I knew better than to get myself in a situation like that again.
This was the first time I wasn’t totally sure of that, because he insisted that he liked me and wanted to keep seeing me. He refused to improve his texting game and I refused to “chill out” about it.
It was always me being mad at him for taking too long to respond to my texts, or not responding at all. I’m talking about the classics, like, “I was busy” and “I didn’t see your text until now." After letting it slide once or twice, I full-on called him out on lying: "I know you saw my text, and I know you could have responded." via GIPHY Suddenly, I was being called clingy.It’s easy to say that maybe people who don’t text you regularly don’t have feelings for you the same way you do for them.However, after getting some valuable input, it’d be wrong to say that’s the case every single time (thank goodness).Like, planning our next date or asking for a quick opinion on something.Otherwise, a daily correspondence isn’t necessary, but it’s definitely encouraged.” Another male friend was more blunt about it.
