Rule # 11 – Digging your own grave
Have you ever waited for someone to get back to your last text and found yourself “re-texting” him or her? Me too. But there comes a point when you have to be rational and realize that the person you may have been having a text conversation with is busy. Don’t ever let your emotions get the best of you, and DON”T take it to the extreme. If I cliffhang you, there is good reason, I swear.
If you freak out due to cliffhanging you are more than likely just insecure and maybe you should pick up a self help book titled “loving me”, complete the excersizes (which are probably similar to those in the twelve step program) and start seeing a therapist. Wait, have I gone too far? Assuming that if someone reacts irrationally to NOT hearing from someone they are crazy? Let me show you how I can prove this:
Him: Sushi? (3pm)
Her: yes! Where? (3:02pm)
(insert radio silence)
Her: ? (3:15pm)
Her: Seriously? (3:30pm)
Her: WTF?!!! (3:45pm)
Her: That’s it! I hate you! You are an inconsiderate asshole. We are DONE! (3:50pm)
Him: Whoa! Calm down! My boss called me in to a meeting. (And he is now saying “uh-oh” what kind of whacked out chick is this?! I’d better make my break for it) But, since you brought it up, I think it is a good idea that we take a break.
Do you see how you can come off as psychotic? Or better yet a raging bitch?! Yeah, Cindy Lauper, you pretty much just did that whole self-destruction thing called “showing your true colors” and that fella that was asking you to dinner, probably won’t want your company after all, ever.
