Honesty is Such a Lonely Word

So Kyle says he's been busy.  Amanda hasn't heard from him in a week. They've been out three times. The final date ended with her inviting him in, the two of them jokingly avoiding sex, and then ultimately giving in and doing the shimmy shimmy. 

Kyle is apparently so insanely busy (saving the world I presume) that he doesn't even have a moment to pick up the phone. His days are just that crazy.

Dear Amanda: With the invention of iPhones and Smartphones,  it's almost impossible not to call you or even send a text. Sorry to say, but if he was into you, speaking to you would be the highlight of his horribly busy day...a day that he would never be too busy to call.

He's already made plans with her twice and bailed both times.  Apparently Kyle had what sounded like perfectly legitimate excuses, followed by “I really wanna hang out when work dies down – I’m so sorry!”

Since then? Crickets...


It's pretty clear that Amanda is being blown off. Arrggggg...Why is it so impossible to date like adults around here? are not complicated, although they'd like you to think they are. Not calling = Not wanting.


Hey guys...if you're not interested - JUST TELL US! If you’d rather be friends, that is your choice, and even if we’re disappointed - that isn’t your problem anymore. People are allowed to lose interest. It just happens. If we’re upset about it, that’s for us to have to deal with.

But grow a pair and communicate what's on your mind. Don’t randomly act like you’re still interested when you’re not. That just strings women along and makes them overanalyze the shit out of shit.


We’re actually not all crazy [insert psycho theme here] despite what you like to imagine. Sure, as I said, we might be bummed out if things are over, especially if the sex was mind blowing, but guess what?...We’ll actually be just fine. 


It won't even take us that long to move on.  So get over yourself and don't think we’ll be devastated without you in the picture...and furthermore...sorry to burst your little bubble, but our self-worth (despite what you see in the movies) is not determined by your interest in us. We can actually handle this maturely...most of us with class and dignity.

Here's the trick if you wanna save a chick from going crazy on your ass [insert psycho theme here]...TRY HONESTY.


Trust me...the rewards of being truthful and honest far outweigh the risks of avoiding. And, quite frankly, you don't need nads of steel [insert Superman theme here]. 

Reach down in the front of your pants...feel around for a while...if you can find 'em, get off the computer, get outta your parent's basement...and use 'em.

Saving the world one pair at a time...
