Pillow Talk: Missed connections – get right or left behind


In the wide world of dating, on many occasions missed connections are certain to happen.

Just because someone is single at the moment doesn’t mean they’ll be there waiting around when you decide to make a move.

Most people interested in getting to know someone better, on a more one-on-one level, tend to go about doing it all wrong.

Men: Have a tough time reading the signs. Women flirt in the weirdest ways, they won’t come out and tell you: “Hey, I like you.” Instead they’ll expect you to be a mind reader … which is impossible.

Women: Never seem to get it. A guy can show interest in a woman for months without her viewing it as “flirting.” Like you’re just sending her “Good Morning” texts routinely to be nice.

I don’t know about you, but being ignored really grinds my gears.

Suddenly you begin to feel like your time is being wasted trying to get acquainted with someone who isn’t interested.

That time could be spent on yourself doing something more meaningful with your life.

It’s still early in the first quarter of the year, but it’s time to think about your missed connections.

Maybe you were a bit rude to the cute guy who asked for your phone number at the mall a month ago.

Who knows what could’ve developed by now.

Or maybe you’re the kind of guy who shy’s away from attention.

You could’ve already pushed away your potential girlfriend by being an arrogant, cocky jerk.

Nothing’s worse than looking back on a missed opportunity.

The sight of seeing someone you could’ve had a chance to build with, in a happy relationship with someone other than yourself can leave a salty taste in your mouth.

Whether we choose to admit it or not, we all have a soft spot inside our bodies that is surrounded by pride, and having too much pride can be detrimental.

Have no regrets.

Let it all hang out, shoot your shot, say it with your chest or forever wonder in the back of your head “what if…”
