A couple of days had passed since John and I had our first date…I had no intention of calling him back. I was knee deep in work which kept my mind occupied; a relationship would only get in the way of an already busy schedule.
After a couple of days, we reconnected and boy was he not happy. “I’m really upset that you didn’t call or return my phone call.” In that moment, I thought to myself, no way. I’m not going to get involved with someone who gets this upset just after a first date.
I was a little unnerved by his tone of voice. For days after, I was a little concerned as to whether or not he would become more aggressive.
We politely ended the phone call and I never heard from him again. He was no longer interested and I was free to move forward on my journey.
It’s a good thing we didn’t get together, it would have never worked out. A couple of months later, due to the stress of my new job, I did something that would change the course of my life…I walked out of my job.
