Is the way that you tell time a cultural thing?
Because I don’t understand why you don’t tell me before. Does it mean you don’t care or does it mean you’re overwhelmed? Or something else entirely? I don’t get it.
I honestly don’t mind waiting that much. But I get super disappointed when I get disappointed, all the more after waiting a long time. So, I don’t know what to make out of it. If you can’t make it for whatever reason, I prefer a short and quick disappointment over a slow, hopeful and painful one.
Leaving someone to wait is also a disrespect to that person’s time and life. It may not look like I got a lot to do but I do structure my day around appointments that I do try to keep.
Honestly, I can take a let-down.
Just don’t leave me hanging.
Why do you even suggest a call if you can’t make it or don’t want to. You don’t owe me anything, so you don’t have to suggest it. Don’t you respect your own word? How do you think other people can respect it? I understand that your actual real life is more important. But don’t pretend you want to talk to me if you don’t. Don’t make false promises. I just don’t get it and this is how I see it. How do you see it?
The only thing I don’t understand is that you don’t cancel in time when you know it won’t work out. I can’t believe you do it on purpose, or do you just get so lost in the moment? To me it’s just normal to cancel in time. So, this feels like a huge disrespect. If it’s meant to be disrespectful, you can tell me another way to bugger off.
I just might like to have a conversation about this. And some explanations. Because I don’t get your behaviour at all. Just make yourself clear. And don’t hold back because I’m sick of waiting.
It might be better by phone but it’s obviously open to you to give your statement by text.
I’m looking at the stars and wish you were here and I could fucking understand you.
