If you go on a date with a girl and:
1) she does not contact you for a week (no call, text, e-mail)
2) you do not contact her for a week (no call, text, e-mail)
She will likely make the assumption that you’re aware she is not interested, and has already happily assumed you are not interested as well.
So when you do call, a week later, she will be very Perplexed.
I have book deadlines now. Tra-la.
At this point, it’d take a pretty swoon-worthy date to pull my attention away from the book deadlines.
I have yet to have one of those.
