Now we enter the final season (sniff sniff) and this is a favorite, season six episode 4. This episode (and the book) totally changed my outlook on dating. Granted sometimes I didn’t heed the signs but the trusty advice from this episode never failed me.
Now this is not a fun thing to think about and we women have spent ions telling each other what we want to hear (although the advice has gone more negative or more in line with the book the older we get). The guy didn’t call because he was afraid of commitment or he just likes you so much and wants to take it slow or he wants more of chase or *makes fart noise* who cares.
The end game is that dude did not follow through. Let’s be honest with each other. If he really likes you he will respond to your text in a reasonable amount of time and not 2 days later. His last minute canceling may happen but if he really likes you he will call you and reschedule when he has to cancel, not some short text with no future make up plans. If he isn’t asking you for a second date by at least a few days after the first date…eh, he’s not that deep into you. If he doesn’t bother to plan at least one date…well. Turn the page, he’s just not that into you.
Sure there are exceptions but keep your eyes open and your hopes in check. The reality is, and I’ve written about this before, we know what being desired feels like. A man who is into you will make sure you feel desired. It may not be in the way you want it but at last you’ll know it and feel it. If you have to ask then you already know the answer.
