If you like a woman, why would you wait a week to call her after a great date? Why would you wait even more than one day? And then when the situation implodes or she has moved on, you wonder why. Well, I wonder why you waited so long to reach out?!
When you get to a certain age, you should know that connection is rare, so if you find it, YOU NEED TO EMBRACE IT and not let it pass you by.
