I'm gonna throw this out there: I have 0% of a clue about how to handle calling a boy that I like. I call my guy friends all the time, but something about calling boys I wanna date terrifies me. As a result, I never call boys, even when I date them. I guess I'm afraid of coming off pushy so, I become the exact opposite of pushy. My cell phone bill statement can back me up on this.
I wasn't always like this. In high school, I would pursue any guy that turned my head. Out of impatience, I'd call a guy all the time then scratch my head when he wouldn't respond to my advances.
Sometime around college I read the book The Rules and it warped my phone etiquette completely. It instructed me to never call guys. Instead, I should make them chase me. It's like a light bulb went off. It never occurred to me that my persistence was a turn-off. I've been a freak about the phone ever since.
Oh, and if a guy tells me to call him sometime, I get bummed because I think he must not be that interested in hanging out if he's making me do all the phone legwork, so to speak. Am I reading that wrong? Really, anything having to do with phones and boys I like is a disaster.
So, fellas, what do you think about girls calling you up? Yay or nay? I need some help on this. Freals.
