I remove him from every friend list of every network site. I leave msn...
Right. Approximately how long can I remain online without him IMing me and before I appear to be avoiding him?
My lack of a reply to his text may work for me - he'll be waiting for me to make the first move.
But what if he feels like he should make the first move as an act of chivalry? He may want to make sure I'm alright; my silence could be mistaken for devastation and he might feel guilty.
Well there's a first time for everything but I don't think this is it.
Oh God, what do I do?! What will he do? Is now an appropriate time to text a response?
Maybe not my original response...
I find him in my online contacts - she's in his name.
I can't sit here and wait to see if he's going to make the first move, I'll explode with anxiety!
I'm transfixed, my eyes on her name in his.
I sign out.
What did I do that for?!
That was definitely too soon, he thinks I'm avoiding him. The fact that I am avoiding him is irrelevant.
