Don’t Make Excuses for Them
One of the latest terrible trends we have to deal with is R-Bombing, and I’ve been experiencing it personally with a guy I recently started seeing. In these cases, it’s easy to make excuses for the other person, and they themselves will usually say things like, “Sorry, I was really busy,” or, “Sorry, I’m just not really good at texting, but I really like you.”
You want to be understanding, so you take what they say at face value, but it’s a bunch of nonsense. People make time for the things they want to make time for. If Obama could schedule Friday date nights with Michelle while he was President of the United States, this person can find time to respond to your text, no matter how busy they are. You can’t expect someone to make you a priority after just a few dates, sure, but you can expect them to show a reasonable amount of courtesy and respect. And not responding to someone is just plain rude, whatever their reasons. Just move on and find someone who doesn’t act like a child.
