You Asked: Was It Me?

Dear Sugar,

I need some advice. I'm a 20-year-old student from London. I have many friends, but I've never had a serious boyfriend. Last weekend I met a guy at a club; he took my number and called me the next day to arrange a movie date that Wednesday. We went and everything went well. He said he'd call me about going out on Friday, but I haven’t heard from him since! I thought everything was going so well and then nothing! Is it me? — Confused Cassie

Dear Confused Cassie,

The annoying thing about dating is that there are no guarantees. When you're not in a committed relationship with someone, unfortunately anything goes. It's natural that your initial assumption is that there's something wrong with you, but that's not necessarily the case. There could be a number of reasons why he said he'd call and he didn't — I could speculate until I'm blue in the face, but at the end of the day, Cassie, if he didn't feel a connection with you, you're better off knowing now rather than six months down the road. Instead of taking this too personally, (I know, easier said than done) try to use it as ammo to get yourself back out there! Finding someone you want to have a relationship with won't happen overnight. You may even have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince, but don't give up; it'll happen eventually. Good luck!
