MISTAKE #5: AVOIDING CONFLICT
What’s up with treating us like we’re little shell eggs made of the finest spun glass? Listen, you’re not the first guy we’ve ever met who messed us up, and you probably won’t be the last. And we’re not going to lie down and take you ignoring us, breaking our dates, or sneaking around. We will attack you with our talons out, so it’s about time you use logic and common courtesy and just let us know what’s up with you.
Solution: Getting sporadic with the phone calls, not responding when we e-mail you, or giving us the old run around is no longer possible (again, technology means we will find you). So you need to suck it up and let us know when you stop being interested or want to see other people.
We will confront you if you do not — we will not fade away or silently wait for your reply. And the problem is, we’ll be doubly pissed off and crazy when we do it. (I’m talking caps-lock text messages and lots of hand waving.) Possibly some hitting. We can take rejection — visual aid notwithstanding — but we don’t want to wait around for it.
