Please Explain: It's 2018, and I'm still expected to....
make the "first move?"
So I've been out with this very nice woman, three dates: out for drink and light dinner, talked for a few hours; then went ice skating, talked for a few hours; out to a show, talked for a few hours. We did some necking as well before she hurried home. All good.
But unless I text her first, I'll never hear from her. Even when I text her, the exchange goes back and forth, and then she drops out. Don't know what to make of that.
It's 2018, people. Doesn't texting/calling work both ways? Can't she start the exchange by a simple "check in." It would be nice to hear someone instigate the text: "hey, how are you?"
But it's always me who has to make the first move. If I didn't, I would be forgotten, probably. Women blame men for "ghosting" them all the time, but don't they have to take some initiative as well? They want to be treated as equals, shouldn't they behave as equals?
I'm sorta getting fed up with all this. But I always do, and someone always turns up.....
