Are You Being E-Maintained?

Illustration for article titled Are You Being E-Maintained?

This situation has happened to my friends (ok, ok and me) many times over the course of their (whatevs, our) dating lives. Have any of you ever been strung along (electronically) by a man or woman who you thought was really into you at first?

The just of the below article: Woman and dude have amazing first date. She doesn't hear from him again for about a week, but is over the moon when she does. He continues to string her along emotionally (via text, email, etc) for an indefinite amount of time by contacting her just enough that she doesn't forget about him and by being just interested enough to make her think he cares and is genuinely interested in what's going on with her life (FU emotional manipulators!!). And....

I share tonight because my friend, who originally shared this article with me years ago, had this happen to her again this week (month or so overall, but the epiphany came today). I thought it might be of interest to y'all.
