In the grand scheme of dating...
I know myself!! I knew Sunday night that I needed to be down for a while and that after a good night sleep I would feel better.
Well, Monday morning, I felt better, but was still a bit confused about it all. Luckily, at work, Candy came to see me and ask details about my date. I told her that it had went well, but that The cook wouldn't answer to my messages anymore. She helped me feel better by saying lots of stupid things and after that I really felt good for the rest of the day. She kinda mentionned that The cook was probably just waiting a bit before answering, but letting me wait. If he was to reply or not, I still felt a lot better and was ready to move on to other guys.
Back home, I had a surprise: He had answered!! In the same message he replied to both of my messages and he said that he had had a nice time as well.
I took my time to reply, I answered him the next evening, on Tuesday.
I realized by reading The Colorful one's comment and Buddy Bear's comment, as well as Candy's comments and other blogs, that it is very frequent for guys (or girls) to not answer instantly, let a discussion go slower before picking it up, meeting different guys at the same time and wait for one to develop into something more etc...
I now understand that all this is part of the great dating scheme. I can't say I don't find it stupid to wait to talk to another guy when you actually wish to get to know someone enough to be able to build a relationship. But, I have to do what I have to do.
So, I will be patient, have many lines in the lake, have some shake often or less often....
In the meantime, I got back to High School guy and he did reply. I also contacted 2 new guys and one of them has replied so we have exchanged a few short messages. Hopefully it will pick up a bit!! I will also write to Syrup guy pretty soon asking if he comes to the next LGBT meeting (bowling time!).
Fishing... hmmmm... I mean..... Dating is on!
