Radio Silence

There are plenty of things I'll never understand. But one of the biggest ones is Radio Silence.

You know what I mean. You've gone out with someone for a short while and then, out of the blue, he stops returning your phone calls or your emails.

My imaginary therapist, Angelique, tells me that sometimes when guys see themselves as the "nice guy" they don't like to do the difficult, un-nice act of actually rejecting someone.

So they just fall off the face of the planet without word or warning. And somehow they think that's "nicer" than saying: "Well, it's been fun, but I need to move on now" ???

So here's a message to all of you "nice guys" (and "nice girls") out there: GROW UP! Use your words and say what you mean.

It's really not that hard.

Look, E, it's not you- it's me. I just can't see being seen with a girl whose name is all initials. Initialy, I could. But now I can't. Oh, we had some good times! When you first let me into your inner sanctum- WOW! That was way cool! But, again, it's all me. I need my space to grow and you, well frankly you need some consonants and maybe a few different vowels. More importantly, you deserve a guy who isn't so petty about chicks with initials, Although it IS kinda ironic that I'm dumping you for a girl who goes by B J. Who knew? Let's stay friends...

You're very odd.

And you know I love it!

That Anonymous has Ferrerman written all over it. But, then again, I don't know your friends.

I figure if a guy can't have a civil -- nice knowing you I'm going to other things -- conversation, I've escaped a bullet. Clearly the guy doesn't have the conversation skills to have a lasting relatinship.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

But if everyone were mentally healthy, I'd be out of a job!!!!

I don't understand not being able to tell someone you no longer want to see them either. Obviously Communication 101 should be a required course.
