. . . that I always feel completely compelled to reply to someone straight away???
So remember I said the other night in my inebriated state that I was going to message that guy? Well, although I never confirmed I had done it, I did. Just a casual message saying I didn't want to just request him as a friend without at least saying hi and asking how he was. The second I had done it, I totally regretted it - in much the same way I had when I originally made the friend request.
So I kept myself away from logging into facebook until last night (while also under the influence) and was amazed to find he HAD actually replied. He had said "good to hear from you!" and said he was okay and he didn't know how I'd survived work after that night we were all out, he'd just been glad to have the day off to recover.
Now I didn't know whether to reply back or not. He hadn't asked me any questions or anything, but he had said it was good to hear from me. There was no need for him to say that, I didn't expect it. Typical me though, just reading too much into things. He'd only sent the message yesterday morning so I tried to stop myself from responding straight away. But I couldn't help myself. I tried to continue the conversation. Not gonna check for a couple of days to see if there is any response though because, if he DOES respond, I really don't want to reply straight away this time. Also, I don't know for definite if he WILL respond.
Hmmm, why is it so hard to know whether I should be BOTHERING trying to keep in contact, or whether it just isn't worth it? He didn't HAVE to reply, I send messages on facebook quite often which don't get responded to. AND (why do I keep focussing on this???) he DID say it was good to hear from me.
The old neurotic me rears it's ugly head once again . . .
