You know what grinds my gears? People who promise to ‘catch up’ and never follow through on it! I’m not sure if there is a more disappointing feeling than when you genuinely connect with someone and look forward to actually getting to know them - on a personal or professional level but then they don’t follow through! I absolutely get frustrated when I hear the words - let’s catch up sometime- and no date or time has been allocated to when that ‘sesh’ would take place. This to me automatically signals someone who is looking to ‘appease’ me by feigning a connection where there isn’t one. I would rather someone end at - it was great getting to know you - and walk away than leave a conversation with those daunting four words and not follow through.
So yeah, next time you feel like you didn’t make a connection with someone, how about you don’t promise to ‘catch up’ and instead thank them for the time spent chatting and walk away with your integrity intact!
