I've had a text "fling" (OK let's call it what it is: flirty pic swapping with a lot of chatter, both sexy and not) with a longtime buddy and I think I've been had. Not sure what the etiquette is in this situation, but after two messages over two days asking how he is with no reply (he had a pretty bad cold), I think the right way to go about this is pretend it never happened, right?
I have no intention of sending any more messages ('cause really, I'm not going to be *that* woman who keeps pushing and pushing then comes off looking slightly imbalanced), but it doesn't change the fact that I'm kind of miffed and a little disappointed that it ended up this way. So, wise ladies of Group Therapy, how do I proceed? As it stands, I'm cutting my losses, treating this as a cautionary example of what can go wrong and letting it serve as a reminder for the next time something like this comes up . . . but what do I do if he does text me again? Is it rude to ask what the heck happened and to lay out some "ground rules" if you will or should I just tell him I'm not interested (I am though, which is the worst part) You'd think that being in my mid-30s, I'd have a clue, but this is pretty new territory for me.
