it takes a lot to date someone these days.
notice i footed the word: “date”.
it’s easy to get some ass/dick,
but it’s harder to date these days.
you gotta be your perfect self and so does your social media.
it can be a full time job,
without the lack of stability
waiting for the benefits to kick in
one of the foxholers sent me a new-but not so new-trend in dating these days.
this is what “cock and cocktails” had to font about it…
It’s been a whole 24 hours since he last messaged you. Obviously, you’re not gonna double-text like some obsessed, desperate psycho. And you’re certainly not going to go out and meet some new men to take your mind off this one. Thankfully, there’s a much more subtle and sophisticated approach to take: posting a selfie that’ll get his attention.
Instagrandstanding: when you curate your social feeds to appeal to one person in particular.
Now if you’ve never posted something for the intent of someone specific seeing it… well, you’re a liar. I mean, even if you’ve never posted anything solely for the purpose of someone else, you’ve most likely posted something – that perhaps you were going to post anyway – and hope they see it.
it sounds like the reverse “i’m going to make my ex jealous” tactics.
you know what that is.
when you put up pics and videos to show you’re happy and don’t need them,
but the moment they send you a “hey big head” text,
you’re already thinking about your response.
how about if the person you like doesn’t respond back,
you dismiss their ass and move tf on?
it’s their loss.
i’m guilty of getting emo over a non response during a 24 hour period.
i forget i’m a whole self absorbed at times,
not taking into consideration others have lives too.
he might be dealing with his sick mama,
his car broke down,
or he may have died right before he was going to hit me back.
you never know why someone doesn’t respond back.
he may have figured you weren’t his type from the convo.
if someone doesn’t take you seriously the first time,
it’s a foreshadow to how they’ll treat you later on.
that’s too much common sense for us tho.
we like to do things the hard way.
