Whole lot of ish dating
If you are feeling really crazy, you might even opt for “I really enjoyed hanging out with/meeting you/our date/our conversation, would you like to hang out again? If you can’t send some simple texts within 48 hours, then either (1) You aren’t into me, (2) You are indifferent about any semblance of a relationship with anyone, (3) You are willing to have a sort-of-relationship with me as long as I do all the work, or (3) Your communication skills need work.
As long as I ask them out, send texts, and make plans, they will show up or respond. I’m working on doing less in relationships to see if guys will step up. But I will keep trying to find someone who is interested in meeting me half way and being an equal.(4) Look, if you are into someone or trying to figure out if you might be into someone, you need to communicate. Maybe you don’t have the emotional bandwidth to put yourself out there. What kind of communication is that person looking for?
I also acknowledge that some people prefer phone calls to texting — as long as you are communicating regularly, that seems like a good compromise.
As always, honesty about expectations is paramount.
You might throw a compliment my way (only if you mean it). Don’t be confusing by sending random texts to keep me sort of interested. Make it clean: Ghost me entirely or send a brief but gentle text that you aren’t interested in dating me. The circumstances were such that I didn’t feel right ghosting someone, so I sent a brief text sharing that I did not want to go out with him again.
I was gracious, kind, and direct.(2) Be honest with me that I’m not going to hear from you very often because you don’t want a relationship or you want a lot of space.
While I used almonds in this recipe, you could use hazelnuts, pecans, or the always amazing macadamia nut if you prefer.
This combination would make for a great snack for anyone, but kids aren’t going to jump at this snack without a little pizzazz.
This means: (1) That Bonnie is a failure at dating AND (2) She’s accumulated a lot of experiences and knowledge about the dating landscape for middle-aged chicks in Austin.
There is something about dates that makes me think about decadence.
