Boys Are Dumb

On more than one occasion, I have been in a phone/e-mail exchange that basically goes like this:

Boy: I'm sorry I dropped off the face of the planet, but I was scared to death. See, we had this amazing chemistry together and such an incredible connection that it was like the two of us were going to be married within weeks, and I'm just not ready for that. So maybe we can slow things down and meet for dinner this weekend to talk it over?

Jen: Who is this?

Jen (that would be me) just assumed boys would make random crap up as an excuse for not calling, but now wonders if she's really that lovable. So magnetic and charming that she could lure non-commitment-phobes into a marriage within days?

That's ridiculous. I'm holding out for someone I can drag off to Las Vegas within hours. Then I'll know it's TRUE LOVE.

Except you'll then have to divorce him 56 hours later after intense pressure from your mother and publicist.
