Yes, I did just refer to myself in the third person. Sarah hates the waiting game. Sarah hates the part after a good date when she tries not to care whether the guy calls or not.
Honestly, I'm not ridiculously upset at The Intellectual not having called immediately. After all, this was a two hour coffee date, not one of those misleading, meandering six hour first dates that leaves everyone with a mixture of feeling like we're going to get married next week and that we never, ever, ever could possibly fathom spending another minute together.
But still, I don't like this part. I like it better when they (meaning the guys I actually like) call. I also like it better when it's five or six or seven days later, and I know for certain that no call is coming my way.
The middle of the waiting game is not a middle I like.
