Sooooooo

Saturday was a great day. We had such a good time, rode some coasters, had some time to get to know each other, etc. There was walking with arms around each other, some hand holding. Nice!

Then, and I'm hoping this is a good sign, after spending 5 hours with me already, we went out to dinner after. I dropped him off at his house for some clean up, went home for my own shower, and he picked me up and we went out to a really nice dinner, then drinks, then my house (get your mind out of the gutter! Well, maybe in the gutter a "little" bit, but still PG).

But see, now my obsessive side takes over. I'm back to waiting for "the call." Part of me knows he'll call, and then part of me is freaking out about it. I don't know why I do this. I'm going insane, truly insane. I don't know how to stop. I have an inner dialogue where I argue with myself about it. Guys have "boy time" when it comes to calling - I don't think it's EVER the next day. And I'm trying really hard not to call him - but I might have to break down and do it just for my own sanity. Is that bad? ok? I so don't know these things.

So keep those good thoughts coming. Chant with me - He's going to call, he's going to call. :)

Carmen,
we're both a lot alike in that sense. I obsess and worry, and then obsess some more! Take a deep breath, give it a least 48 hours... if he hasn't called by then I think its perfectly logical to shoot him an email (I know, passive agressive) or something. We're so totally not "friends" and don't know each other beyond the blogosphere, but I'm pullin' for ya!

Good heavens OF COURSE he'll call--if he's got a brain. I've found that some men don't, but I'll trust your judgement of him!

Purrs.

Oh Carmen! It sounds like it was just LOVELY! I bet he will call tonight! If not, you call him tomorrow. Give him through tonight!

From what you've said, he'll definitely call. But I do think it's important to not act too clingy or needy in the beginning. Guys seem to really run from that. If you want to call him, I say wait until Tues. or Wed. and then it's just kind of a midweek catch up, Hey, how's your week going kind of thing.

Sounds like things went really well! I'm not into the whole wait two days or three days or whatever it is to call. But some people are. I would say let him call. If he likes you, he'll call.

Just try and relax :)

I'm chanting for ya!!

Virginia said...

Awesome! Glad you guys had fun--and I'm sure there'll be lots more fun to come!

If he called TOO soon, you might think he was some kind of sissy-boy, or obsessive. We just can't win.

;-]

I'm chanting!!

Nam myoho renge kyo... I mean... he will call...he will call...

Uisce said...

so.... why wouldn't he? anyway, I'm chanting! :)

Renee said...

wow! sounds like it went really well. I'm sure he'll call.

DH didn't make me suffer like that, he made plans for our next date that same day. But I'm learning that's not the norm for guys.

I know it's gonna be really hard, but try to wait as long as you can. They're like trying to catch a butterfly.

Hey if he doesn't call you soon enough...call to invite him over for dinner. You can tell him that the recipe you're making works better when you make it for more than one, so you were hoping that he could come to help you eat it...cuz Pooh doesn't really like it much. ;o)

I don't know what I can say from this distance except: Relax.

If he didn't like you - really like you - he wouldn't have agreed to go out on the "really nice dinner" after cleaning up.

Truly, I wouldn't worry. Guys do have a "calling time" issue, mostly because we are told not to be too anxious or look disinterested, which doesn't leave much time in between. Give him the benefit of at least ONE doubt.

i think you're doing great.
