Dating when he doesnt call
When it comes to dating, one of the most frustrating things ever has to be when you’re talking to a dude – and out of nowhere, he stops answering your texts. Basically, whenever he doesn’t call or text you back can drive you CRAZY. In these situations, it can be tough to figure out what to do. It's the easiest and fastest way to push someone away and make them really annoyed.
The hopeful part of your brain wants to believe something happened, like his phone died or he’s really, really busy with other stuff or maybe your phone is broken and the text just didn’t go through. I know how frustrating it is to go without a response, but please don't start sending a bunch of texts, calling, attempting Facebook messages just in case and texting his friends to see if he's with them.
But I have to be honest, there really was something that felt impersonal about dating someone and communicating only via electronic methods. HOW they say something, the way they laugh, or their passion on a certain topic is how you really get to know what's in their heart. It's a huge time saver, it's succinct, it can be really sexy.
Plus, it's nice to have written things saved if it's a text that means something to you.
Then there’s that miserable part of your brain that is imagining the absolute worst. It looks desperate and also makes you seem a little crazy - it's just way too overwhelming.
When someone is not responding to you, the absolute worst thing you can do is bombard them with your own messages.

It was from a 30 year old guy who I'd met a couple hours earlier at a get together of a mutual friend. It read, "It's Will." He then leaned in really close (which was sexy) and showed me how to return the text." If you don't get a response a second time, I would personally drop it.However, if you really want, you can wait a few days and try once more.), so excited to find out if my new man had left a message. A lot of divorced people have kids, so who is going to sit and talk to their new guy on the phone? But I have to say, part of me misses those long, meaningless conversations late at night, both sitting there not having anything to say but not wanting to get off the phone. In a real conversation, one that doesn't involve emoticons, like smiley faces, hearts and tear drops, and chat acronyms like LOL, 2NTE, H&K, or KOTL (kiss on the lips), men and women are so much more authentic.In that regard, Will's use of electronics was the perfect match for my single mom lifestyle. Not only are they giving their honest reactions without having as much time as they need to think carefully about their next response, but when you hear someone's voice, there's a much more three dimensional discussion going on.
