Ever meet someone and feel like you're pestering them with texts since you're always the one to start a conversation? Then you do one of those "ok, I'm just gonna not text and wait for her to message ME this time" kinda deals, and usually it just means you lose contact? I guess the logic being that if they really have any interest in keeping in contact, they'll eventually reach out to you right? Seems a good way to weed out new friends or dates that are just being "nice" but aren't all that interested. Actually got a message back this time. It's a small victory, and kinda childish nonsense to think of things this way, but I like to appreciate the little details that make your day.
