The Silence is the Worst Part

I haven’t really talked to Malin in a while now… she’s on vacation and on a trip up to Stockholm since a few days back. Beginning of last week I asked if she wanted to meet for a third time to play some Mario Kart. She said she could towards the end of the week or next week.

She then went quiet for a while, I sent a few messages during the week which went unanswered, but then towards the end of the week I sent one and got a reply, which is when she told me she’d gone on a trip.

I’m hoping when she returns she’ll still want to hang out.

There’s no reasonable reason she wouldn’t, since she seemed to want to hang out a couple of weeks ago, but anxiety says “Maybe she’ll change her mind and not want to talk anymore.”

It doesn’t really help that a certain friend (the only one I talk to about stuff like this) insists that everything should happen super fast and if a week goes by with no conversation everything is doomed. I don’t really buy into that, but it sure doesn’t help the anxiety.

I never know and constantly worry about whether I’m sending too many or too few messages at any time.

We’ll have to see how things go when she returns.
