I thought I'd hear from him on Christmas. I was certain of it. I didn't. I picked up his dog for him today. But he didn't even bother to call to check on her.
It's probably that he's just busy. But this time of year is when I'm never certain about those I'm dating. I get nervous.
People's emotions are all over the place. Mine included. So, all bets are off this time of year.
Besides, I'm always afraid that history may repeat itself, again. The holidays have been the beginning of the end for three of my longest relationships.
Add to that the run-ins, calls and cards from past loves. It's a confusing time of year. People trying to reconnect. To evaluate where they want to be at this time next year.
Dreams. Wishes. Resolutions.
I have mine. He has his. I was beginning to believe they might include each other. Perhaps the silence should be telling.
