I replied and gave him a quick update on the goings on in my life. As is the norm lately, he hadn't asked, but I figure that since I keep saying I want to be friends, I can't continue being standoffish, right?
Now that I've sent more than a dozen words, I probably won't hear from him again for a long while.
Oh well, I'm not checking my email every five minutes hoping to hear from him anyway. Now the whole thing is just kind of laughable.
