>I keep reading/hearing about how women have all this power in a relationship because they are the ones who decide to accept a man. Really? I sure as hell don’t feel very powerful. Waiting around for the man you want to act accordingly sucks big freaking time.
Being that I’m a gal of action, and in this day and age where if you want something, you have to act on it, waiting for the goddamn phone to ring stinks. I feel like I’m failing because I’m not doing anything.
I have the power…to wait the hell around. But, I’m not supposed to wait around for a phone call. I’m not supposed to care if the guy I had a great time with last week never asks me out again. Well, I do care. It’s difficult for me to be nonchalant because I am anything but cool especially when it comes to dating. It’s even more difficult for me to let go and pretend I’m not going to be disappointed since I’ve been disappointed dozens of times before.
So let’s say pigs start flying and snowballs have a chance in Hell and this guy does ask me out again. At what point is it finally OK for me to come back from 1955 and contact him? Can I ever be the one to initiate contact? I don’t mean ask out. I mean send a text to just say hello. Send an email to share a funny story or something with him. How long do I have to wait to act like my usual self instead of this stupid simpering idiot?
