My friend and I were having a conversation today about dating, and it made me start to think about things...
Like when my mom and dad started dating. She was 15 he was 19. They lived an hour apart from each other. Back then there was no cell phones, no texting, no facebook, email, etc. The only way to communicate was via the telephone or snail mail or actually see each other in person. But they found a way... and made it work and eventually got married.
That makes me wonder about today.
She asked me if I thought we were asking too much from a guy. Wanting him to text good morning, good night, through out the day to say they are thinking of us etc.
I told her no. I don't think that is asking too much. We have the technology now adays to do that!!! Why can't we expect a man that we like to show us that he likes us? Especially if this man did it early on in the relationship.
Now, I am not saying that the guy always has to text first, or always has to say good morning or good night... but when it happens repeatedly that he "forgets" or is "busy" that makes me wonder if I am really on his mind as much as he says I am.
I told my friends this:
That I am not lowering my standards.
I am tired of making excuses for guys and why they do what they do.
Tired of finding reasons for them.
That if a guy isn't who I need him to be... then we obviously are not meant to be.
and honestly I would hope the same in return. If I don't fulfill his needs and desires than he shouldn't be with me either. Period.
