Dear Queenie,

  When you go on a date with someone and he says he’ll give you a call and then he never does, what are you supposed to think?

  Queenie, why do men say they’ll call and then they never do?—Lady waiting


Dear Lady,

  They say they will call because it is kinder – and easier – than saying “Sorry, I didn’t like you and I won’t be seeing you again.”

  All you can do is hope for a call, but do not hold your breath or put your life on hold waiting for it. Meanwhile, feel free to do whatever you feel like doing, including dating other guys.
