Here's a snapshot of what my love life has been like for the past few months.In December, a guy I went to high school with started messaging me on Facebook.
That escalated to texting every day, phone dates, and him bringing up visiting me over Valentine's Day weekend (he was in the Midwest, I'm in New York City).
A few days after he suggested the trip, he asked if he could come earlier than we'd planned.
It’s exhausting, but moving past these feelings is a process.
Here’s how I’m learning to let rejection roll off my back.
When his plane landed, he said he was too tired to get together but asked if we could reschedule.
I wrote back to let him knew when I was free and then…crickets.
Julie wanted to know what happened or what she might have done wrong to turn him off.
After being ghosted and dealing with canceled dates, I found myself crying over random dudes.
I chalked it up to another ghosting, but not without worrying that I did something wrong, like somehow coming off as too desperate or too available in my one-line text about rescheduling.
I wound up crying over yet another dating disappointment when the pain from the last ones was still so fresh.
There are thousands of reasons why a man doesn't call a woman after a great date.
