Like this is my example, there are many. I’ve heard and seen this so often where guys just barely give a woman anything, treat her as an afterthought or string her along, and then are shocked when she tells him how much it hurts? This one guy strung me along for months, I’ve been patient and kind and all I could be. He told me he needs to get his life together with work since he’s 30 and jobless and lives at his parents’ and he told me he needs time to himself and just stopped talking to me and if I tried to ask what was going on he said I was being too communicative and asking too much and I just need to let him reach out to me when he’s ready (mind you I asked to call him ONCE). He wouldn’t even take a call. It’s been weeks and he expects me to just be waiting and excited to hear from him again? How can he not see how much this makes me feel like I am not important or mean anything? Why would I want to see someone who wouldn’t even take my phone call? And instead of ever telling me what’s up or what’s going on (he hasn’t, I assume he is ashamed of his work situation) but he just ignores me instead. How does he not see that’s hurtful?
