Dear SoxLover's Advice Column Back in Business

Apparently Yahoo liked my answer to the first dating question I got, since I've received another Dear SoxLover query.

It seems that Yahoo tweaked their algorithm since the original question as my site no longer comes up in response to the original query; it used to be the first result.

I nevertheless feel a responsibility to answer, so:

Dear Waiting,

Do not give up hope!

There could be many reasons he hasn't called you back. Perhaps when he got home, he forgot to take the scrap of paper out of his wallet. Expect a call when those pants come out of the dry cleaners in a couple of weeks. It will be extra special since he'll be sure to be in a good mood having found it there along with a crinkled $20.

Put it in his cell phone you say?

There could be many reasons he hasn't called you yet. Perhaps he left it in the back of his taxi. Perhaps he got your number along with several others and has been conscientiously giving each young lady her chance in order.

Whatever it is, feel free to ask me again, advice by Yahoo search has to be the most innovative use of internet technology I've seen, and any lady thoughtful enough to use it has to have an edge over all those other suitors for Mr. Right. You go girl!

Yours truly,

I think everyone knows Google > Yahoo, and this is one of the many reasons. Lol.

And Sox, regarding your advice, here's a relevant quote:

“Optimism is a psychological disorder exhibited by those out of touch with reality.”

If there is a God up there watching us stumble around in the dark trying to make meaningful connections....he is rightfully pleased with you.

Still laughing, please oh please let her read this!
