I met someone for dinner last night and it was nice. It wasn’t fancifully exciting, it wasn’t irritating (as I had mistakenly expected) and it wasn’t uncomfortable at all. In fact, it was very pleasant and I really enjoyed the company/conversation. But I got mixed signals and these things frustrate me. I thought it was going really well but I got no response when I texted “thanks for dinner, I had a nice time”. Shouldn’t you at least reply and say something?! Even if you don’t want to ever see me again, there’s usually a cursatory attempt to be nice before you disappear into the woodwork. Ggrrr!
