I’m trying to remain a good sport, but this tugs at my patience. On Saturday, I got two flirty emails from a cute guy who I actually found intriguing. We share common areas of interest – politically, culturally, gastronomically – and even though his neighborhood is slightly beyond my geographic comfort zone, I was definitely game to meet him for coffee. This rarely happens. I responded the next morning with a short, but sweet reply. That was 36 hours ago. Yes, he could still get back to me. But the rhythm of these things is if someone is interested, they respond right away. Here’s my confusion. Why did he start the conversation in the first place?
