06 Apr The Mild Mannered Man….that never called back
I was having coffee with a friend of mine one day and she mentioned she met this really great guy. She had a smile on her face and i thought to myself Yes! she got herself a fella. Before i could even finish the wave of thought her face turned 360. ‘Yes but…’ we her next words. I was even more curious then. She began saying that Mr Architect, lets just call him Anton, was very keen, kind, offered to drive and pick her up, showed some chivalry, was as he put it a ‘Mild Mannered Man‘, showed interest, funny, very ‘into her’. Just as we women would like the beginning to be. Then out of no where, calls became less frequent, the excuses as why he couldn’t catch up became less plausible. He became, like the latest It bag or new bar, hot and happening one minute then NOT the next. ” Ill call you tonight” never happened. WHAT THE?…..This scenario sounds all too familiar, not just to my friend but women the world over. So why do men go hot then cold? Especially if it is still very fresh and new and you haven’t given ‘the cookie’. Do they just get scared or don’t know how to process liking a girl? They give such an impression that they are really into you and show you even. But then like Consentino turns into a magician. Men know very well how to disappear. Even accompanied by the lamest of excuses. Perhaps if guys like Mr Architect just told the truth we wouldn’t be so perplexed as to why some men behave like wimps and A-holes. The truth always does set you free. So we, as women can create space and time for the real men to come into our lives. Mr Mild Mannered wasn’t WELL mannered. Maybe he will tell the next girl his cat died. Or ill call back….. round Christmas time.
