Everyone knows women get “involved” more quickly than men. The phone calls and text messages you want to make, your more sensible part says, “No. Don’t text him again. Give him a chance to miss you”
So you play it cool. He takes hours to reply to a text. You have your phone in your hot little hand, you know exactly when he replies, yet you must wait.
The rules: don’t appear too eager, too available. Does he have rules, or is he just less involved? So you restrain yourself, inhibit yourself.
Does it always have to be this way?
