NaNoWriNO Day 20
Topic: Why don’t men call when they say they’re going to
I feel like I’ve talked a lot about relationship stuff during NaNoWriNO. I’ve definitely had fun with it, and am happy for all of the suggestions I get. Still, it’s like calling your dentist and asking her to come fix the electrical wiring in your house. It’s best to leave that to a professional.
Women have been frustrated for years (decades? centuries?) over the “ask for my number and never call” bit that men do. You’re flirting with a guy at the bar, he says he’ll be in touch, and then you never hear from him. “Why?”
The better question is, “Who cares?” I only date good guys, and that’s not an accident. I don’t waste my time on guys who play mind games, use the words “fun” and “casual” when talking about relationships, and don’t call when they say they’re going to. If that’s their version of impressing me, imagine how they’ll be when we’re comfortable.
If you’ve given your number to a guy, and he hasn’t called yet, here are some things you can do to occupy your time:
Watch a little educational programming
Try to figure out what he hell this girl is talking about
Tend your garden
Help me figure out how I can get my hands on this
Go out and get some exercise
Find out what possessed Matthew Gray Gubler to take these pictures
Settle in and read a good book
DO ANYTHING ELSE BUT WAIT FOR HIM TO CALL BECAUSE HE’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU.
Thanks to my girl Wendy from Wendy’s Work for suggesting this topic.
