How Long Is To Long?

How long is to long to hold out for going out for a drink with someone, genuine question please let me know via twitter @jakedomb

I’ve spent the last couple of months talking to a girl and asking her out for a drink growing slightly frustrated as the weeks pass by and still no after work socializing on the cards.

To point out she’s a teacher so Monday – Friday was always going to be a no go for her whilst my shift work gives me no weekend to plan something…..a modern day Romeo & Juliet, love being estinquished before it even gets started by the s**t demands of work.

I would of given up and accepted her dating profile was a fake had it not been for a mutual friend we both shared, another girl I used to work with in broadcasting…back in the days The Watford Observer called me the most wreckless/dangerous man in Hertfordshire radio.

Anyway the long overdue social happened and being honest it wasn’t the best date, no drinks were thrown over but I felt like I was interrogating the poor girl (It’s easy to slip into this when you can’t think of anything else to say) 

* What’s been your favorite holiday ?

* What’s your favorite food ?

* Are those rumors about the staff room I heard as a kid true ?

We shared a little of our mutual love for Dubai in a cool bar in Covent Garden but felt things got a little awkward when we went for a wonder round the plaza and I linked arms with her…..After a couple minutes I realized her arm was awkwardly dangeling down by her side so bailed.

Although saying this we ended up walking from Covent Garden to Oxford Circ so mabye I was overthinking things, after all she could of just jumped on the train and headed home instead.

Been out of the game for too long! 

Swipe Right & Not Type

What is it with the morons who like you enough to swipe right but as soon as they see it’s a mutual attraction go completely silent! 

As a guy it is your duty to instigate the convo, looking at her profile and picking something specific about her to start the conversation with you’d think would aid you in getting a reply.

So I’m confused to why I’ve currently got 50 matches where I’ve started a conversation and have had no reply…..I know people are busy and may not always read messages but after you’ve sent three over a period of time you assume their not interested in you (I mean I’m not the best looking guy but if I’m really a munter why haven’t these girls unmatched from me/even swipe right in the first place)

It’s the same thing if you get your new crushes number and start talking on whatsapp (those two blue ticks are a God sent, letting you know when that hottie is blanking you) 

Girls if a guy is taking time out of his day to drop you a message have the respect to reply to him, even if it is being black and white and saying your not interested

 A guy who’s taken an interest in you and invested time to strike up a convo and not just demand nudes is worth a reply!
