expatriate hasn’t replied to any of the three messages (an email on Monday, a voicemail on Wednesday, and my email inquiring about ‘the cold shoulder’ on Friday). I’m a bit disappointed now.
All of my friends even if they’re busy have time enough to reply with “I’m real busy this week. We’re going to have to catch up later. Maybe ‘X’day?”
Then he posts this after my cold shoulder email, but he still hasn’t responded to me. I know he’s sick, but he’s well enough to address my disappointment on lj. Why can’t he address me? This is the mystery.
It’s not really that mysterious. The reasons I can conceive of are: doesn’t want to; devoting his energy and time to a guy that doesn’t up and leave for 10 weeks; being held prisoner by target, psu, and campaign work; decided that he doesn’t even want to be my friend anymore.
It’s disappointing when you really enjoy someone who seems to be enjoying you, and they simply disappear by seeming to turn their back to you. It’s even more disappointing when you’re across the country away from your friends, family, and other support. It leaves one a little blue every day when someone who was telling you they “love” you only a week ago stops communicating. That doesn’t make me angry. It makes me sad.
Granted, this could be an overreaction, but I’ve never really been left in the lurch for a week by someone who cared about my feelings. Of course, the same might be said of me for leaving town for 10 weeks after dating someone for 7-8 weeks. Maybe this is my just desserts, but it still hurts. A rhyme.
