However, my parents now say that if I want to live under their roof (I moved home to save money for law school), this relationship will not be happening.
My parents have always been loving and supportive, and it seems so silly that they are basing their judgment of him purely on the color of his skin.
Yeah, sure, maybe it will mean that you occasionally seem a little over-excited to get his text (because you happen to be checking your messages when his comes in), or a bit distant (because you were ignoring your phone while studying for ten hours, and his text came in right after you started); but you will only seem so in the short term.
No single text you send will represent to him your attitude, so no single response time will matter completely.
Then why are you doing it for a guy who (for all you know so far) might be married or have incompatible politics?
Would you delay your response for an additional 15 minutes, or occasionally not reply at all in a text conversation with your little brother?
I've dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men.
If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset.He's either a player or not interested enough, and either way you do best to forget about him. Weekly updates about all the pop culture, race & politics, Bougie Black People™ shit, and other grand tomfoolery we cover here on VSB. In order to time your texts so that you convey your best self, you will need to be two things: genuine and realistic.Being genuine will prevent you from seeming uninterested or boring, while being realistic will prevent you from seeming desperate. If you get a text from a guy that you like, and you genuinely have a free moment to reply, don't play games by artificially prolonging your response.Then why do you feel the need to do it with your cute coworker who you really like and suspect might be into you?
