Why Didn't Jane Write a Dating Rule Book!?

9/03/2012 The Blue Stocking 4 Comments

Is it unrealistic to believe that you can be friends with a guy you dated? Now remember dating and being in a relationship are different. If you’ve been in a serious relationship and dare I say talked marriage with a boy, walk away. You will not revive your old friendship nor should you.

But I’m talking dated: gone on a couple dates. Innocent enough right?
Well the reasons I bring this up is Scooter is in my ward again. I have to admit, at first I was freaked. But now I think this could be a great thing. For a while there we were good friends, and it’s great to have friends in a new ward.
The thing is, I think Scoot is avoiding me…like the plague. And his methods of avoiding are quiet strange. According to my sources (roommates) he spends an awful lot of time staring at me. Which is funny because when it comes to actually approaching me or gasp talking to me, it’s a no go.
I’m not quite sure what to do. Should I just wait until he approaches me or should I risk a brush off and try talking to him?
O dating life, you exhaust me.

P.S. Did I mention how much I don't like being ignored.

I would wait till he talks to you since you were the one that ended things.

That's dumb. Just go talk to him. If you're chill, then he'll take the cue from you. It's only awkward if you make it awkward.

Well, Jane herself might not have written it, but someone did - http://www.amazon.com/Austens-Guide-Dating-Lauren-Henderson/dp/1401301177
I have a copy, it's a fun read :)

I agree with Eleanor! It's only awkward if you make it awkward.
