Should you be real af and text him as soon as you get his messages? Should you calculate how long it takes him to respond to you, triple Welcome to the most wonderful time of the year, fam.No it’s not Christmas, no it’s not the day you finally get your tax return back, it’s Leo season.
When it comes to texting a new potential boo, even the chillest among us can start to feel a bit hectic.Whenever I’m standing on a subway platform, I play this game: I hover near a person I think is cute and try to slowly make my way over to him so we get in the same car. Like most of the girls in my class, I wanted attention from the boys.When we do, I look his way every so often to see if he’s staring back, to see if we’ve got what my best friend and I call “the affinity,” a mutual acknowledgement that we one another. But while they chased after blondes and brunettes, I was ignored.They’re in the streets, calling senators and congressmen, attending community board meetings, and holding sign-making parties. But while the political universes of my white friends are cracking open, I’m feeling more inclined than ever to cloister myself.I’ve gone on a few dates with white guys in the last few months, and the same thing always happens.
