A Man of Few Words
As women we like to talk and when we text, we like to text.
MARY: Hey girl! Are we still on for dinner tonight? Where should we go!!? OMG I’m so excited to catch up – SO much to tell you! What about the Sushi place we went to for your birthday last month? Yay/nay? 7:30? xxooxxo :)
JANE: Hey you! YES. So so excited to hang tonight! The Sushi place sounds great! 7:30 is perfect and I’m SO in the mood for Sushi. I already know what I’m going to order…great idea…Can’t wait - see you soon! xxoo ;)
Cut to Jane’s text exchange with her husband:
JANE: Hey honey! xxoo Omg – I can’t believe that both of the kids were up at the SAME time last night – ughhh – I’m exhausted. So I forgot to remind you that I’m having dinner with Mary tonight – sushi – if you want me to bring you anything back then text me – if I don’t get a text from you, then I’ll just assume that you don’t want me to bring you back anything. How’s your day going??
If so then please know that he’s not ignoring you. You asked him a question – he gave you an answer. He did read the other details you shared with him and there was no direction saying “as soon as you’re done reading your wife’s text, please send her a break down of your day as well.” He’s processing your text in a concrete and literal way – he’s not blowing you off. So be smart: Don’t interpret his lack of words as a meaning for how he feels about you. It just is what it is and nothing more.
After all…he has a penis and you have a vagina. Enough said.
