I'll tell ya... I am getting sick and tired of being strung a line... I am so ready to win that lottery and leave this frozen wasteland of a place, where men are wimps and women can't find a decent male specimen of the species to have any kind of a relationship with...
Mid January, a friend introduces me to someone she's recently met, whom she thinks is a nice guy. Turns out he's separated from a common-law relationship and agreed to my friend giving me his email address.
To make a long story short, we emailed, then met for coffee and hit it off quite nicely. Seemed like a very nice, down to earth kinda guy...and after a few dates, I sent a brief email basically saying hi, how ya doing, enjoyed the time we spent together.
Wait a couple days, send a text saying hi.
Wait another couple days.
Then, getting annoyed, email saying it's rather rude to not answer the email or the text, especially since the last I heard, he'd quite enjoyed our dates as well.
He tells me he was scared shitless by how we got along... and was only 5 1/2 months out of that old relationship and so was feeling like he wasn't ready to be dating again. Okay... fair enough... but why not just tell me that? So we talk, and agree no pressure, just see each other whenever, and we went out on a few more dates over the next couple weeks.
Then he says (again) he's not ready to be dating. Fine. But we are definitely still friends. So we were going to meet for a coffee and a visit this afternoon. That's all. Not even a 'date'.
He calls me this morning.... He's going to be getting back together with his ex... feels he has to give it one more try to see if there's anything there worth salvaging....
Fine... Been there myself (the trying again thing)... so I wish him luck... he apologizes and says he's sorry if he hurt me.
What actually hurt... was on FB today, his status showed 'married'.........................
That packed a pretty good sting.
Seems I didn't learn a thing from the last guy who asked if we could just be 'friends'....
