“Sometimes giving up, doesn’t mean that you’ve lost.”
Many of you may have forgotten about Catalina and Jason. If so here’s a recap:
These two were first featured in my previous blog entitled ” Approaching A Potential Match In Church: Yikes!”
Catalina was struggling with whether she should ask Jason out or not. He is the worship leader at the church that she attends. I like to refer to him as a mini celebrity.
Since then she has asked him out and has continuously made ATTEMPTS to establish communication between them.
The Take Off Was A Bit Rocky…
The first interaction between the two seemed promising. She asked him out and established interest. Then sometime passed and she tried to talk to him again. Well those times didn’t go so well.
One of the times, he didn’t speak at all. There wasn’t any eye contact. Just a complete and utter failure.
The last encounter had humor, laughter and even a nice hug at the end, but she walked away with absolutely nothing. He didn’t remember her from the previous conversations. He forgot all about the fact that she asked him out. She was no closer to knowing if he liked her or not.
“There’s a possibility that it may not all be his fault.”
There has been extremely long stretches of time between each of their interactions. From what I’ve learned, men tend to be singular minded individuals. They tend to lack the ability to remember far off things, and can’t shift focus at a moments notice.
Jason talks to numerous people daily. Maybe Catalina got swept into that large crowd. There are always plenty of people vying for his attention while he is in the middle of speaking to someone.
All in all, the time and place just never seems to be ideal. Then again when is life.
There’s Always A Lesson To Be Learned:
This has helped Catalina shift her perspective on things. It is extremely evident that this isn’t going anywhere, at least for right now. What’s the harm in taking a step back and letting Jason come to her for a change, if his interest in her is equal to her interest in him.
Some people spend their entire life chasing something that was never meant for them to have. At times, while you’re chasing the wrong thing you may miss the thing that’s right for you.
Catalina knows just how wonderful she is. It isn’t her job to convince someone of that, only to love them once they realize it.
You don’t have to agree with her take on the situation. The comment box is open for your opinion.
