He should have texted you. I don’t buy the “he’s busy” excuse. Move on.

Why do you expect him to text first?

Idk i always think if a guy wants to talk they will reach out in “pursuit mode”

Don’t allow your mind to fall into negative thinking. The way I see it (and in this context), communicating takes 2 people. There’s no harm in reaching out to him.

I’d say he’s not constantly thinking about you or that he doesn’t see this as an opportunity he’d jump on right now. Also, it’s a working day. If he won’t text back in 2 days, maybe space out! But just focus energies elsewhere for now

The day's still young and it's also a work day, so he may just be busy?

Just do you! Like D1 said, focus your energies elsewhere. Focus on a hobby and things that make you happy. Try not to let your mind fill in a false narrative!

Update: I think a few of you were right he might not be interested... texted him around 630, responded at 8 that he was busy working on quarter close. I responded 5 mins later and he has yet to text back 1.5 hrs later... Next smh

You can’t be sure! He may actually have an important deadline. Don’t be so quick to jump on the negativity/cynic train 😝 Focus on yourself, your hobbies and if he’s interested and it’s meant to be it will happen easily and naturally. That’s it! You can’t control the outcome of life so why bother stressing over it? I’m sure you’re a catch and the right man will find you at the right time. 🌈

He was busy with work and probably FaceTimed a new prospect! This is dating....Don’t set up expectations so fast, you barely know the guy. You should be busy yourself talking to someone else, after all..you’re not exclusive and not in a relationship. Line up the candidates!

3 day rule people. You can’t text too soon otherwise you look desperate/like you have nothing else going on. I know some people aren’t into the “rules” and say do whatever, but I’m of the mindset to make them work a little. Some people love the chase. And if they are interested then they will put forth the effort to make it happen.

How do you manage to keep a straight face in front of clients? Sometimes during interviews they’ll say something ridiculous or funny. I’m pretty junior and want to appear as professional as possible

Couple months into a new FT gig. Love most of my team. Cannot stand my partner (did not meet them during the interview process, big mistake). I’m bored more often than I’m busy and going stir crazy...

As a leader, I try to use what power and influence I have to make change. Yesterday, on a holding co leadership call when trying to get a Fortune 15 company to meaningfully act. I was faced with 4 white, 50+ y/o men on a zoom screen telling me they were “doing enough.” Ignoring statistics, the research they provided, let alone the moral argument. If I am this exhausted, frustrated, and drained in this moment, I can only imagine this is a sliver of what others feel every day.
