Three months ago I met a guy, we'll call him Jack. We exchanged business cards and after 2 weeks I chucked his in the trash because I hadn't heard from him. It didn't particularly bother me because that happens often enough not to stress. I saw him again a month later at an outdoor concert/party/bar. I was with another guy all night but saw Jack across a sea of people and hand signalled "NO call?" He signalled back that he'd been busy. I answered "No worries." The next night he called me. Eventually we got together for a drink and had an absolute blast. He's very attractive, manly (in a good way), intelligent and considerate...I was so surprised to enjoy the date. The next day Jack had to leave for the West Coast for a contract assignment with his company. It was something already scheduled before we had our date and he mentioned that he was sorry he had to go for the next two weeks. I really didn't expect a call until he got back into town but he phoned me 2 days later from the road and we talked for friggin' 4 hours. I have never talked to anyone that long at once...not even as a teenager all those years ago. He called again a couple of days later and we had another amazing conversation. He even confirmed a second date when he gets back. Then...nothing for a full week. Not really that much a problem for me but I picked up the phone last night to buzz him to see how his weekend went...got his voice mail and no call back. Did I screw up? I didn't even think it was the wrong thing to do before I made the call but as soon as I left the message my "girl thoughts" got rolling into the zone of OOPSIE...and I know I'm not calling him again FOR SURE because I felt instantaneously stupid after leaving a message. So did I screw up? And can I recover? This guy is really cool and would like to get to know him better. However, I won't die if I never hear from him again either. Know what I mean?
