This is a legit text a received the other day:
Hey___. I’m sorry I fell off. Life and bullshit. I’m still interested in talking to you, if you are cool with that 😉
[“fell off” = 5 days; after responsiveness for about a week or so]
I don’t quite know how to respond to this, but I smell loads of bullshit and I told myself 2016 wasn’t going to be the year to deal with fuck boys.
Whatever this guy has going on that literally keeps him SO very “busy” all of a sudden, he can keep all of it. I don’t care to make an effort to communicate with him (at all at this point), “check in” or pretend that I empathize with him either. I don’t “owe” him that level of energy or effort at this point.
End of the day, everyone is busy. Let me say that again for you folks in the back:
You make time for the things and people that matter to you (or in this case, mostly spark your interest) and excuses for everything else. Period, end of discussion.
