We’ve all had moments where we needed a cold hard dose of reality to help us move on

from someone who wasn’t matching our energy, and wasn’t treating us the way we’d like

to be treated. When it comes to situations like that, this kind of dating advice can be

helpful, if delivered in the right way. But there are also times when someone you really like

or love pulls away from you and the last thing you need to hear is that it’s because they

didn’t feel any desire to pursue you. Talk about rubbing salt in the wound. […]

From my own perspective, there have been times in my life when I wanted to reach out to

someone I was dating but didn’t. Those reasons were: having feelings for someone else,

not feeling ready to move on, recognising I have some work to do on myself before getting

in to something, not wanting a relationship at that moment in time, and a fear of being


I was thinking about my behaviour from a few years ago. I was trying to move on from a

relationship that had long ended. I was struggling to shake off the feelings I had for the

person and I thought that meeting someone new would make any love for him evaporate

instantly. Naive, I know, but we live and learn. I opened Bumble and arranged

back-to-back dates over consecutive nights. Amid a few rather laughably bad dates,

there was one gem. The guy was kind, funny, smart, handsome, he had a cool job, and,

crucially, he liked me. On our first date, we realised we’d both gone to the

same school and had grown up near one another. It felt too good to be true. At one point

in the date, he asked me if I wanted to go get something to eat, I felt a tug inside me that

told me to leave, that I was getting too close to someone new. While getting ready for our

second date, I had a panic attack because I was afraid he would try to kiss me. At this

moment, I knew I wasn’t ready for any of this. After the second date, we mutually agreed

to call it quits because there didn’t seem to be anything beyond friendship between us.

Eksempel: She increased throttle and…

She increases throttle and…

She increased throttle and turned her boat toward his, all the while scanning the sea to make sure his friends were out of sight. Chase motioned her north past Barkley Cove – the village serene and colorful in the distance – and landed on the beach of a small bay tucked in deep forest. After securing the boats, he led her down an overgrown path of wax myrtle and prickly holly. She’d never been to this watery and rooty forest, because it stood on the other side of the village and was too close to people. As they walked, thin runnels of backwater seeped under the brush – slinky reminders that the sea owned this land.

Then a true swamp settled deep with its low-earth smell and fusty air. Sudden, subtle and silent all at once, it stretched into the mouth of the dark receding forest. Kya saw the weathered wooden platform of the abandoned fire tower above the canopy, and a few minutes later, they arrived at its straddle-legged base, made of rough-cut poles. Black mud oozed around the legs and under the tower, and damp rot ate its way along the beams. After crossing the sludge, they started the climb, Chase leading. By the fifth switchback, the rounded oak forests tumbled west as far as they could see. In every other direction, slipstreams wove through brilliant green grass to the sea. Kya had never been this high above the marsh.
