Toby was recently appointed Chief Consultant on ‘male perspective’, since speaking to Flatmate became too much like watching the news: relentlessly depressing. Toby on the other hand makes rejection fun. He sends me little tables, like this:
So when I start despairing that the guy I like hasn’t replied to my Facebook message because it was too chatty and too long, and therefore he’ll have realised I like him and so will have run for the hills… when that happens, I can consult the table and find out that it doesn’t matter and that I’ll live. Which is hugely reassuring.
