And trying to be in a relationship with will just mean a lot of heartache. And it won’t be because you went with the girlfriends that said to call, or your Mom who said to wait. Stuff like this mattered to them because they had lots of their own issues and weren't ready for a real relationship in the first place.
As Toronto's oldest annual air show, it isn't going to disappear any time soon. The Royal Canadian Air Force isn't exactly brimming with brand new technology or lots of planes. Only a fraction of what we would need if we were ever in a major war.
The base tickets bring in thousands of people, but they also offer VIP tickets which have staggering prices of upward to 19 per ticket, and include a lot of interesting perks... The RCAF also only has 14,500 regular soldiers and 2,600 reserves. But the most crippling problem is that Canada doesn't even build its own warplanes any more. We are completely dependent upon United States factories to be building our planes.
Imagine a scenario for example in which an enemy of NATO bombs and destroys all of the American factories...
Since then, I've gotten a lot of questions about dating protocol regarding whether we should go ahead and call him, or wait it out and see if he comes around. Being or doing something that’s just not really what you’re all about. All those books and advice from friends about the rules and all that stuff, it doesn't matter.
It got me thinking about this topic and what’s really going on with this whole etc. Does it really matter if we call him or not call him? When I look at the whole “call/don’t call” debate I went through in my single days with all the guys who were not the ones for me, and when I look at all the mistakes I made with the guy who turned out to be the real thing, I realize it’s true! So save yourself all the agony, all the second guessing, all the frenzied conferences with your girlfriends, your mom, the cashier at the grocery store, your hairdresser, the guy in the apartment down the hall – you get the point. If he’s the right guy and you’re being real, and you call him when you’re thinking about him, it’s OK.
Why do we put so much of our energy into trying to figure out this simple decision? Of all the things I remember from my single days, that’s probably one of the most memorable; the “ call him” conundrum. If he hasn't called and you really want to talk to him, if he’s the right guy for you and you’re the right woman for him, it won’t matter. You can call if you want to; he can call if he wants to. You know, the one where you call your best girlfriends, or maybe even your mom, and go over the pros and cons of calling him or waiting for him to call. And I started thinking about why it’s so hard for us to wait for him to call. But then we read something else that says, no, boy chases girl. At this point, we’re right back to where we started. You can wait if you want to, or don’t wait if you don’t want to. And why it feels so much better to just pick up the phone and call him, even if we think we probably shouldn't And I realized that it’s because we live in such a proactive world where we’re always told we need to be doing something, always actively Because on the one hand, we’re told to be assertive (and certainly our professional lives are all about that), but on the other hand, the culture of dating is still mostly about him pursuing and us waiting to be pursued. And is also seems to be the way men and women are wired. Well, it can all be just a tad confusing when we’re trying to figure out what to do and how to navigate these waters. With a real guy who wants a relationship with you, it’s easy. Just follow your heart and know that whether you end up calling or not, waiting for him to call or not, it’s OK.
