bermudamohawk I can do this.
I recently found out that a former coworker is living in my new town. We decided to meet up for dinner this week. As we were making plans (via FB messaging) I realized that I have the tendency to make other people do the choosing. I’m so concerned about pleasing others that I choose to not care. I throw out options (diverse ones) and rely on the other person to decide. That can be tedious and draw out the decision making process. Lame. Here’s out the process went this time:
Me: You’re in town?
D: Yes, I’m here for another week. We should meet up for dinner!
Me: Yes! I’m free Monday or Wednesday evening – do either of those work for you (yes, I gave options because, realistically, his last week in town will be a busy one).
D: Monday works for me. Any suggestions where?
Me: (Thinking about offering two or three options and letting him choose, then changing my mind…) How about GP? At 7:45?
D: Works for me.
See how much easier that was? I set a place AND time, and he agreed. I need to try this more often.
