We've all been there. Somebody says they'll call you. They may give a specific time, or just a range of time in which to expect this call.
This call could be from anybody. It could be a boy or girl you like, it could be your heterosexual life partner, it could be person you're waiting to interview. All of these are hard to wait for, but those ones when it's a person you'd like to date, or fuck, or whatever, seem to be the hardest.
So you wait. You may keep your phone glued to your hand, afraid that leaving it for one minute could result in "1 missed call" written across your cell screen.
It's nice if you're busy and you don't have to think about the call that is not coming.
It's harder when you're not as busy and you sit there and wait. The seconds tick by. They turn in to minutes, then hours.
Sometimes the call comes. You think to yourself, "Why was I even wasting time wondering if my phone would ever ring?"
Sometimes the phone never rings. A million things might run through your head.
"Why didn't they call?"
"Is something wrong and they couldn't call me? Should I be worried?"
"Did they do this on purpose?"
"Do they know that I am waiting?!?!?!"
It never matters. We'll never know the real reasons that people choose not to call back.
It's probably not because you asked them on a date to drink water.
It's more likely that this is just a part of life. People forget to return calls.
Maybe they just forgot.
Maybe they didn't feel like talking on the phone last night.
We've all been there.
