    Its a really complicated story but the bottom line was I was supposed to meet up with someone who appeared very interested,

    I emailed her once, and got no reply in 24 hours, I then called her once and no reply thus far.. I did leave a message so at this point am I wrong in assuming I have done enough?

    1 email + 1 call is approaching the dignity abyss, especially since you were supposed to meet.

    I'd say you over did your part, but then again I like my females to be more into me that I am into them as I tend to be very busy and forget shit easily.

    The worst thing possible is to obsess about it, whether you call or not. Work on that, not the calling or not calling.

    She has your number and your email. If she is interested she will call. You've done enough.

    I'd say you got your answer. Twice. Still want more?

    If she never calls back after an email and a phone message..., yeah, that is an answer.

    i mean i think chances r slim that he will get a positive response but personally i always prefer to force people to confront me

    "hey, i haven't heard from you in a while... are you busy, or just not interested?" etc.

    Yeah, thats great... make yourself look desperate by hounding someone who has already very clearly communicated that they are not interested. A real life-strategy for the socially impaired.

    It's honest. If honesty is desperate then by all means let me be desperate. Fuck this smokescreen bullshit so many people seem to accept; clearly, I don't mind pissing a few people off to get to the bottom of something, no matter how that makes me come off to some insecure people who settle for vagueness, hints, and doubt.

    I'm expecting one of two responses to this,

    a. You're not a hero, JJJ. :hsugh:
    b. This sort of thinking is gonna come back and bite u in the ass, buddy boy!

    a) I don't think I'm taking a virtuous, heroic stance on dealing with people. There's nothing heroic about it. What I think is that others are taking a flawed, weak stance.
    b) This is a purely defensive response, transparently more of a wish than a warning.

    for every two initiatives taken there should be one received. that is now you peruse. if not, then for whatever reason it may be, you cannot meet their needs at the time. nothing against you, in fact it is more them than you. In fact, that would even make the saying "it's not you, its me", actually true.

    Its not a smokescreen. Its clear, direct communication. Its just non-verbal. Inability to communicate in non-verbal ways is damn near crippling. I'd work on this.

    that's a nice thought but it's completely unrealistic. this kind of thing is always always full of interpretation that could be correct and could be totally off. i've accidentally sent this "i'm not interested" message to some girl when all that happened was a cell phone fuck up, for example.

    moreover, if it were actually a clear communication, then that would involve the girl saying to herself, here, this will let him know i'm not interested.

    give me a break. she is not thinking that. even if she isn't interested, all she's probably thinking is, i hope he stops calling. but she might be. this isn't "non-verbal communication," this is non-communication

    He read her non-verbal communication loud and clear and moved on. You could... learn from... want2race. Who would have thought? :eek3:
