Sometimes things end as abruptly as they began. One afternoon on a busy pedestrian street in Kiev, Ukraine I noticed a cute girl walking in my direction. She was probably in her early to mid 20s. She had long blonde hair and a short dress exposing her beautiful long legs.
I wasn’t in the mood for day game but just couldn’t pass this one up. I turned around and loitered in front of a department store, waiting for her to come closer.
Just before she passed me, I came up and asked her if she knew where the closest Zara was. She was receptive and within fifteen minutes I had her number and email. I didn’t leave right away and even walked her to the metro stop. I promised to call her and she promised to answer.
The next day I left Kiev to explore the rest of the country. Over the following weeks, our conversions became progressively longer; brief text messages turned into Skype chats lasting several hours. She even emailed me a couple of pictures of her relaxing on a beach in Turkey. She looked great, fueling my desire to get back even more. We even made plans to meet at a trendy café upon my return.
Then suddenly it was over. One weekend she left town and came back a different person. She was barely online, and the times she was, she’d take forever to answer my messages. Similarly, the replies to text messages would come after several hours or never at all.
I didn’t give up just yet. As soon as I got back, I contacted her with renewed optimism. I told her I was back, and asked her what her plans were. Her reply was cold and blunt: “I don’t think I’ll be able to see you.” That was the last nail on the coffin. I promptly deleted her contact, and never heard from her again. It was over. Finished. Done. She was dead on arrival.
When you order something online, like a laptop or a fancy electric shaver, and it arrives in a defective state, that item is called dead on arrival (DOA). There’s nothing left to do but return the item for a full refund. It’s such a common situation that even those retailers that don’t do ordinary refunds stemming from dissatisfaction are obliged to honor DOA returns.
And the same happens with women. One day she’s very receptive and accessible; next day she’s distant and unavailable.
I wondered what could’ve happened. She could’ve met another guy, gotten back with her ex-boyfriend, or simply changed her mind about me. The reasons are always different, but the initial signs are the same: the aloofness, the delayed responses, and the brief one-word answers.
What can you do? Not much really. There’s only so many times you can initiate contact, supplicate and bear rejection. You’ve reached the point of no return. There’re no magical text message that’ll rekindle the romance just like there’s no way to resuscitate a dead patient. Don’t pass Go; don’t collect $200.
Simply return the product and get yourself another one – there’s plenty more where that came from. And most of them will be perfectly functional and overly joyed with their new owners.BTW, have you seen my new Facebook page? Click here to check it out, and click Like :)
