There are few things more infuriating than getting invested in a conversation with a guy that you like – you know, asking him an open-ended question or even making a little funny – and then waiting for a response that takes forever, a day and a Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. It’s even more infuriating when he was initially consistent with his responses. Two to three minute delays turn into twenty minutes. Twenty minutes turn into two hours. Two hours melt into 12. 12 turns into 24 and then bam, you think that you’re being ghosted and the Mary J. Blige “men ain’t ish” playlist is the only thing you want to listen to on your iPhone. But ummm…maybe that’s just me, though.
Yeah, I get that we are all busy twentysomethings with busy lives. In fact, I prefer productive guys that are contributing something to society. But bruh…is it THAT difficult to finish a convo? I don’t have the heart to be a douchebag myself and ignore a text or even read it with my receipt on and not respond. I was raised better than that. So these scenarios – as outlandish as they may be – help while I’m playing the waiting game.
