An R was displayed next to his latest message signaling that it had been read. It’s been a day. That’s fine, he thought, she’ll get to it. Two days becomes four, and then a week, still that R remained.
They aren’t dating, so by current societal standards he shouldn’t be mad about this lack of communication. But isn’t this the very same issue women have with men and then “give up” or fume instantly if this were them?

R. Reminder. You’re not important enough to promptly respond to but I want to see if you’re willing to try to be. Just don’t try too hard, or too little. What does that even mean?
