When it comes to starting a relationship, either a friendship or a dating relationship, one of the most important keys to that is how you construct it. The building blocks of any relationship is communication, either through texts, phone calls, little notes, or face to face interaction. Communication isn’t just through words though, there is also body language which helps with the construction of forging a relationship with other people. If your body language seems off putting or aggressive, more often than not, people will stay away from you. For people like me, that is a good thing.
A problem I often find though is that I try to reach out to people that I find interest in and would feel comfortable interacting with, at first they reciprocate but then disappear. I’ve had two such people do this to me in recent months, but I’ve had it happen to me almost my entire life. I reach out and extend a friendly hand, only to have one appear to accept but in reality they reject it. It is tiresome trying to make friends, so I have decided I’m done with it. The door to friendship is one I am not fond of, so I decided it is one I am closing. I tire of the endless frustration of trying to be nice when it goes against my very core.
A word to those who read this though, a warning if you will. When someone makes an effort to try reaching out to you, the least you can do is let them know whether you’re even interested in reciprocating their advances for friendship. Don’t toy with them, vengeance is a dish best served cold. I promise, you don’t want to know how cold we silent ones can be.
