The Hookup: Man Up!

The Hookup: Man Up!

Though my conversation with Mr. G was short, the message was clear: Mr. G was sorry for his disappearance. He sounded stressed and upset, venting about work and the traffic. I listened quietly and let him know I was longer angry. Then Mr. G surprisingly admitted he had read my blog, Love Trips. I sent him a recent post I’d written which focused on our new romance. When I emailed the link to Mr. G, I was hoping it would motivate him to act! I had sent him the two latest installments of my Lovemionline column that now featured our romance. When I emailed the links to Mr. G, I hoped he would read them, if only to motivate him to act!

“I’m really impressed with your stories,” he said. I smiled, relieved that my declarations didn’t scare him off. I actually called him my soulmate in one of those stories! That, my friends, would scare any man into a cave. “I hope one day I can entertain you with my writing,” he continued. I smiled again, melting with his words.

The conversation was almost over and there was still no talk of he and I or the status of his relationship. Has his girlfriend moved out? Is it officially over? My thoughts shouted, but I refrained from asking these questions. I didn’t want to push or be the initiator. I wanted Mr. G to man up because I’m the lady! But I’m not that patient. So instead, I woMANed up and told Mr. G we should get together when I returned to NYC from Boston. “Sounds good,” he replied. “Call me when you are back in the city”. It sounded good, indeed, so why didn’t I feel as good as I should? I hung up the phone and thought about it for a while. And then it hit me. I wanted Mr. G to Man Up. I was tired of doing the work and that message was just as clear.
