This is What Happens When You Chase a Guy

It’s Friday night and he just said the other day that he’s so excited to see you this weekend. You’ve been waiting for his message to pop up on your phone and ask you out, but it’s getting later and later and nothing…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, you take a deep breath and send him something like “Hey, you! Let’s hang out later!”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Innocent enough, but there’s no reply…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You wait an hour. And another hour. And still NOTHING.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ve already turned down invitations from your girlfriends tonight because you were SURE you’d hear back from him…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You keep staring at the phone, as if your intense focus will make him answer you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You try to convince yourself it’s all in your head, he’s so amazing and would never do this to me. Not again, anyway. ⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He said he wants to see me. He said he would call. So he will!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know this is all bullshit, right? He’s not going to text you back. Unless it’s after 10pm and if, and ONLY if, it’s convenient for him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BUT I get it, you are obsessed with how you feel when you’re with him, convinced that a fuckboy would never make you feel so amazing. You excuse his inability to respond to messages, showing up extra late to your place and his unwillingness to commit to anything, because you think you’re falling for him.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Want to know how to get him to text back?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fuckboys LOVE attention, so when you stop giving it to them, they’re confused.

They’ll come back to you like flies and by that point, you’ll have moved on to better things and he’ll be a laughable memory.

Boy, BYE!
