Everytime I think I'm revealing something a little off, you guys jump in the comment section to let me know you're experiencing something similar.
Well, I could be onto something else. You ever called someone and hope they didn't pick up? It doesn't even have to be a dating type of setting. I personally don't like to avoid people (I think I just lied), but I'm also too much of a punk to just say, "Listen, I really don't feel like talking to you right now and I probably won't feel like it tomorrow or the day after." I know. It's messed up. But I'm just being honest.
Here's a scenario. You haven't talked to this guy/girl in maybe a month and you bump into him/her at a party. Here's the thing, if you have to remind yourself to call somebody, you should probably just give up on the idea. And here's another thing. In this particular scenario, she/he always calls. You, never do. Sometimes it's hard to pin point why you aren't phone-friendly. You just aren't. So it goes a little something like this...
Carl's Friend: Ayo! There goes Vicky over there!
Me: Where? [ Dives behind couch]
***5 Minutes Later***
Vicky: [Taps on my shoulder]
Vicky: How you been?
Me: [Looking all over the place] I've been good.
Vicky: You look nice.
Vicky: What you been up to?
Me: Mostly work. It's been crazy.
Vicky: How long has it been?
Me: I don't know. A long time?
Vicky: Well, it's so nice to see you. We should hang out.
What a punk! Since I hurt myself diving the first time, I make it my business to call. That way, the next time you see him/her, you can be like, "I called you." So you call and borderline have your fingers crossed for him/her not to pick up as the phone is ringing. If he/she doesn't, you're good. He/she can call back later, but it doesn't matter. You called once and can pretty much milk it. The next time you see him/her, you just turn the tables and be like, "I called you, but you didn't pick up."
So, am I finally off, or have you guys ever felt the same way?
