ES: So you know this guy at work?
ES: I'm getting a tinsy-weensy bit impatient.
RS: Hmm...Patience was never your virtue.
ES: Well...it is just that - I've read the books...if a guy is 'into you' surely you know? Like, he's meant to be chasing you and stuff?
RS: Yes, I guess so.
ES: And he's kind of sending me mixed messages right now. Hot one minute, detached and simply friendly the next. I think he's making up his mind. He pretty much said so in the last text he sent...
RS: So give him some time...be patient.
ES: Yeah but isn't that a BAD sign? That he needs time to make up his mind?! Why can't he instantly see how wonderful I am?
RS: It might not have anything to do with you and everything to do with him.
ES: Hmm.... What if you're just making excuses for him? I just have a bad feeling about this and I'm trying to, you know,...practise self-respect and all that jazz...
RS: Yeah but you're not losing any self-respect right now by simply holding back and waiting. If you go charging in there making demands like a bull in a china shop then you certainly will....
ES: Hmm.... okay, I see your point. I'll try and be patient.
RS: Good - it will be excellent practise for you. Keep me posted.
