acceptance or rejection, extra sensitive, implied vs. inferred, no extra meanings, Texting miscommunications, to hug or not to hug
“I had embraced you…
long before i hugged you.”
― A Thousand Flamingos
Mr. Stocks and I continue to text. Unfortunately we often have some sort of miscommunication or misunderstanding. Now, I come to find out, not only my words, but also my actions are being misunderstood.
I thought it was a pleasant hug goodbye, with a potential future. He thought it was a rejection.
The texting starts when he is letting me know about his decision about a job offer that he had been considering.
I am not sure what the next chapter will be, but I am proceeding with caution. I don’t want to hurt him or get hurt, or worst of all, damage the friendship.
I think he is more sensitive than other guys. Or perhaps more insecure, and more afraid of getting hurt.
