This is a brilliant read. I related to the guy up to the part where he said good bye and there was no more communication. In my case, it is down to several cases but majorly it is down to the fact I am in someway not interested in the girl or the usual hints that the girls give that promote flirting are absent. Engaging conversations are something people love and the moment you guys said good bye, that was that.
Yet the way it ended up, it changed your perspective of the guy. Wouldn't it have been a better memory if you had never messaged him back? Just saying.
Cheers! I took shine to your post because my content is also similar. Haha, i am going to read the rest of your work.
