Or at least, what’s left of it.
What do you think it means when a woman tells you she’s “not sure” if she’s single? Does it make a difference that she brought up the topic and volunteered this information to me? (We all know I’m too chicken to speak my mind on the matter.)
What am I then supposed to do?
- Do I go, “OK, that’s uhh… good to know.” (Not how I feel.)
- Do I probe for more information? (Scary, and the thought of what I’ll find out puts my tummy in knots.)
- Should I speak my mind? (Potentially too forward.)
- Must I sit back and wait until she figures things out for herself? (Might blow my opening while I wait.)
Life ought to come with some sort of instruction manual; one with really pretty and colourful pictures, so it has a prayer of being read.
