The "He Just Says Things He Doesn't Mean" Excuse
I'm dating this guy who ends conversations saying he'll call me at a certain time.
Like, "I'll call you over the weekend." Or "I'll give you a call tomorrow."
Or if he has to take a call on the other line, he promises, “I'll call you back in a few minutes."
And then he doesn't. He always ends up calling, but almost never when he said he would.
Should I read something into this, or should I just know to ignore whatever he says when he's getting off the phone with me?
Dear Call Waiting,
Yes, you should read something into it.
In fact the very something is "He's just not that into you."
Here's the deal. Most guys will say what they think you want to hear at the end of a date or a phone call, rather than nothing at all.
Some guys are lying, some guys really mean it.
Here's how you can tell the difference: You know they mean it when they actually do what they said they were going to do.
Here's something else to think about: Calling when you say you're going to is the very first brick in the house you are building of love and trust.
If he can't lay this one stupid brick down, you ain't never gonna to have a house, baby. And it's cold outside.
Wearing the jacket, Greg
We have become a sloppy bunch of people. We say things we don't mean. We make promises we don't keep.
"I'll call you." "Let's get together." We know we won't.
On the Human Interaction Stock Exchange, our words have lost almost all their value.
And the spiral continues, as we now don't even expect people to keep their word; in fact we might even be embarrassed to point out to the dirty liar that they never did what they said they were going to do.
So if a guy you're dating doesn't call when he says he's going to, why should that be such a big deal?
Because you should be dating a man who's at least as good as his word.
