From Let Him Chase You by Lynn Gilliard
15 days have gone by since their first date. 3 days have gone by since he last called or texted her. 7 days have gone by since he last set up a date with her.
And it just so happens that 7 days have gone by since they were intimate for the first time.
Finally, on the 8th day of sitting by quietly waiting for a date invitation, Eve decides to break down and call him.
“I just don’t think I’m ready for anything serious right now. I’m not ready to date (insert other excuse),” Thomas says when she asks him what’s going on. “We can still hang out sometimes though.”
Eve and Thomas have sex a couple more times — that’s what he really meant by “hanging out” after all. Then he completely “ghosts” her. No replies, no contact.
5 weeks later Eve finds out through Facebook that Thomas is “in a relationship” with another girl he just met.
Why did Thomas make the other girl his girlfriend after a short period of time but only thought Eve was fit to be his “friend with benefits?”
