Bummed Replaced By Worry

my bummed state has been replaced by a state of worry. though i've never met melissa in person i feel that i've developed a friendship with her over the phone. when a friend doesn't return your calls or emails you can't help but be worried. at this point i would rather her flip me the bird and tell me to bug off than not hear from her at all. at least that way i know she is okay and my mind can rest at ease.

Saw your link in my hit meter stats and thought I'd pay a visit. I live in Upstate NY, but I'm an honorary Texan, although I've never been there. I'm a writer and amateur photographer. My late father was a professional photographer.

Just thought I'd say HOWDY!

Jason -

You need to consider that maybe she is out of town and doesn't have access to internet or something. I guess I can see that this is not hopeless...you haven't officially met, if it were me, I would not consider the etiquette of calling someone I have not met (even if we had a phone relationship)

It seems like you are resigning yourself to being rejected and now you just want to get it over with.

I understand the power feelings of rejection can have, and it's easy for me to say 'don't give up' when I'm not in the same circumstances, but if I were in the same place, I would feel like giving up too.

Hold on only as long as your sanity will let you. When you are calm, e-mail her a candid but sensitive note and ask her to tell you the truth.

*hugs*

^^^lol...you posted as I was typing it up I think!

I'm so glad she contacted you!!

She is probably a spontaneous lady, and I can tell you are more scheduled. I'm spontaneous too, and had a scheduled boyfriend a couple years ago who I drove up the wall with my lack of calling and slow responses.

faith,

i'm calm all of the time. that's just part of who i am, and i'm not resigning myself to being rejected. i'm just the type that calls returns calls and emails in a timely manner. no matter how busy i am. i guess i make the mistake of thinking other people would do the same and it can bother me when they don't.
