He Promised Me Pie and Then Stopped Texting Me

He leaves me hanging mid-text. Three days later he returns and texts, “Good morning, doll face.”

Recently, I dated a guy and we were having a totally kick-ass conversation over text. Then, it just stopped. He left me hanging mid-text and dissapeared. Fastforward three days later and I receive a text that says, “Good morning, doll face.” Is this guy serious?!

I didn’t know what to do but, according to “Internet texting law,” I was supposed to make him wait for a reply for the same span of time that he kept me waiting. That’s three days. Somehow this didn’t seem affective. Maybe I should send a clever text like, “Good morning, Fuck Face,” I think. And follow it up with a, “I thought you were in an accident since I haven’t heard from you.”

Instead, I replied, “Hi!” WTF!

The crazy thing is this guy and I had a great time when we hung out together. He took me out for pie and even said he’d make me a lemon meringue pie one day! Well, that clearly isn’t going to happen. Looking back, maybe I should’ve replied, “Where’s my pie, bitch?”

I am just so tired of guys ghosting via text, and I think we should do something about it. Instead of staring at our phones, waiting for a douche bag to text us back and putting up with bullshit behavior, we should just text the guy whenever we want.

Personally, I’m done playing by the rules. From now on I am texting guys immediately with whatever comes to mind. Who cares if it’s offensive or he doesn’t text back? I don’t want to date a flake. I don’t care about the thousands of articles on the Internet about texting etiquette. I’m done!

So let’s stop making excuses for lame ass behavior. One day some other guy will text me back in a timely fashion and bake me pies. But not lemon meringue; I’ve always preferred coconut cream.
