Gentle readers, have you ever found yourself playing email tag with an awesomely awesome person online for days, and then weeks, and then . . . nothing? They pretty much fall off the face of the earth as far you're concerned?
Well, recently, well, really a few weeks ago, I found myself in a similar situation. Except, the email tagging lasted for one night, for we then switched to Gmail chat, and then the phone — all in the same evening. In fact, we found ourselves talking on the phone for an average of two hours nightly for about three weeks. And then . . . nothing.
The nothingness followed shortly after my inquiries of actually meeting in person. Because that's how the process works, right? You talk — feel one another out to see if you even feel like being bothered by this person, and if you do, you make plans to meet for coffee or drinks or something similar. Well, that's how it's supposed to, but lately, I, like others, have found that this may not be the intention of some people.
Then what is? Read the rest on Perpetually Single.
