Tawkify Phone Date 2 – Follow Up

2 Aug

Before reading, it is probably best to familiarize yourself with:  Tawkify Phone Date #2.

So,  2nd Phone Date DID press the magic “Call Again” button, which was a nice ego boost after I had a date that apparently fell off the planet.   So,   I worked with my Tawkify match maker to set up Phone Date 2 – part 2.  It was a little bit of back and forth to figure out a time that worked for the both of us, but we did get it nailed down.

So, after work last Thursday, I anxiously waited for my phone to ring.  And it never did.   It wasn’t me being phone stood up, something must have happened on the back end, and I contacted my matchmaker who told me what happened was “ghastly.”   I told her to go ahead and give Phone Date 2 my number, and she did.

If I thought waiting to see if he pressed “Call Again” was bad…  waiting to see if he would actually contact me was far more agonizing.   I got a text message around 10:30PM on Saturday night that said he’d call me either Sunday or Monday night.   ….He didn’t….  We’ve texted back and forth a few times, initiated by myself – nothing overly exciting – and that’s it.

Why is our generation so impossible about this stuff?  We don’t know how to communicate anymore!  We don’t meet anyone in person because we are all glued to our phones pretending to look busy, we don’t pick up the phone because we can’t possibly do more than one thing at a time.   — I know what you’re saying: “CatLady – YOU call HIM.”   No.   I have already initiated too many text messages that went nowhere.  It’s not my job.   I have no problem being the leader or whatever, but I also hear that it’s emasculating.  So, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I am going to wait it out a little longer, and if not – I will have Tawkify set me up on a Mystery Date.

      Haha.. will do.. Part of me is VERY tempted to just tell him to give me his OKC account so I can figure out why it would never work between us.

    its not just your generation, age doesn’t seem to matter. communication is a lost, dying art. i’m mid 40’s, doing the online thing and I get emails that say “text me xxx-xxxx” all the damn time. i kind of feel like the texting the emailing is all BS advertising, or another form of mind games. there is no context to a printed word. it can look harmless on paper, but coming out of the mouth of a leering guy with poor hygiene, it takes on a sinister tone. meet me in person or leave me alone.
