I know that often I speak too soon when it comes to myself, which is why I try not to speak at all until I know the entirety of situations, but I think things are not going to be on for Douglas and I. I am of the school that if you want to talk to someone that you talk to them. I know he’s busy, working full time and going to school, but he gave me the first impression that he wanted to hang out and was glad we were finally talking to each other.
Its been three weeks since we’ve had that conversation. I spoke to him the next week and he sounded a little less interested, though admittedly that was the day he said he hurt himself at the gym. But I also worried it was something I said (did I sound too nerdy talking about the Star Trek convention? Did I scare him off with my LGBTQ work and thoughts?) Since that conversation I havent talked to him.
Two texts went unanswered and I left him a voicemail that has gotten no response as of yet. The beauty of all of this technology is that you can take just a few moments to reach out when you’re busy and the other person knows that you still want to communicate with them instead of going quiet. We always talk about how men are dumb and refuse or dont understand that sometimes they have to take an extra step with people, let them know they want to talk or want to care but I’m tired of always giving them the easy way out.
How many times can you text message a guy before he labels you a stalker and you label yourself an ass? That’s why I went for voicemail, I am even willing to believe he might not have gotten the text. He had to get the voicemail. So, as of now just forget him and if anything changes it will be because he put in the effort to make it so.
