So, there’s this Capricorn that I ‘thought’ liked me. Our vibe together was exceptionally organic so I decided to execute a plan for what I thought would be a romantic but casual, ‘no pressure’, gesture to take things to the next level from friends to…well you know the next step. Everything seemed well received, but I did not get the response I expected. In fact, I did not receive much of a response at all. My thoughts ran rampant with what I could have done differently to achieve a different outcome. Eventually I grew frustrated and left, covered in shame from my failed attempt at starting a romance. I’ve traveled and worked and dated since then, so I guess we can say I moved on…Until I ran into said Capricorn at an event to which I hear the words, “What’s up? I thought we had a great time and you don’t hit me up?” I was 3 Manhattans in so my response was one part
dick, two parts asshole, but basically ended in me cutting myself off for confessing too much. I never want to let anyone know they pissed me off because I believe that makes them believe they’ve got some sort of power over me. Well I received an excuse that went something like ‘work’, ‘tired’, ‘blah’ followed by an apology and a request for a do-over. Now I can’t help but wonder: Do I brush it off, chalk it up as a momentary miscommunication and grant the request for a do-over? Or do I say, “Sorry, you had your chance”, select-all + delete and keep it moving!?
