It is a hectic day!! I am tired, but I need to make the 45-minute commute from the bus terminus to my place before I get the chance to take a cold shower and dive into my warm bed and sleep. Unfortunately for me, I have to spend another thirty minutes on the long queue before I can make this journey back home. The buses are stuck in traffic because it is rush hour, so I have to wait, though my leg aches from that grueling four-hour presentation on the next big thing in technology. As I await my turn on the queue, I engage in mind travel to a place where the events and people in my environment would take me. It’s my therapy for coping with bus delays or airport transfers.
It took me to the city of The Prowlers; the places for people who pop in and out of your life. The guy/lady who first ghosted you but came back to reignite the flame that you thought was dead. Interestingly, you wonder what this Prowler wants from you again, especially when you thought she/he was not really into you. Well, she/he is still not into you.
The Prowler is on the prowl because he or she is experiencing a lull in his/her dating life and your new social media photo or post just reminds him/her of the good moments. She/He knows that you are not the one for her/him but will still send you “I miss you” text to make you feel good and let her/him back into your life. Sadly, you will let him/her back into your life by replying the text message because you are confused, horny, bored, or in whatever emotional state that you’re in at the time.
Its time you unlearn this bad dating behavior and get a grip of your love life. Someone who pops in and out of your life is not worth the time that you give him/her. You are an option in the list of dating calls and would remain like that if you continue to engage him/her. Anyone who ghosted and prowls you afterwards deserves to be ghosted too!!!!
Finally, my bus arrives, and it’s time for another mind travel as I endure the drive home. I can’t wait to share with you another bad dating behavior that we need to unlearn next week.
