OK, so I’m willing to admit that there never was a real crisis. I only thought there was. I was feeling vulnerable and sad and I let my imagination get the best of me. It happens.
But, you know, I wasn’t always like this. I’m pretty sure I used be pretty mellow about this kind of stuff. It might sound counterintuitive, but after years of dating I’m actually more likely to get stressed out about that kind of thing, now, than I used to be. Because I’ve seen it all before. The guy who’s sweet and considerate and treats me great. Until one day he doesn’t. Until one day he decides, for reasons that I will never understand, that he will stop being great. And so I am forever on the lookout for it. Kind of like the veteran cop who thinks everyone is a crook.
But so far I have no reason to believe that Mr. Potential is a crook (going with the metaphor for a second longer). He texted me goodnight and then good morning. I was sitting in an office, waiting for a meeting to start when he texted me this morning and so I sent him a quick text back. And then my meeting was cancelled. I’d trekked all the way across town in the rain in a nice suit for a meeting that was cancelled 15 minutes after it was supposed to start. I happened to be closer to Mr. Potential’s apt than mine and he frequently works from home, so I gave him a call. I was in good spririts and figured that if he had 20 free minutes I could take him out for coffee.
He answered right away and asked me about my meeting and unfortunately he was working at a client’s this morning so we couldn’t have coffee. I told him he should go (not good to take calls when you’re with a client) and as he was hanging up he asked if we could get together tomorrow night. So that’s that. I said yes and he said he’d call later.
I assume it will be a pleasant, low drama call. I’m assuming the rest of my week will be pleasant and low drama. I’ve already created as much drama as I can personally deal with this week. I don’t want anymore.
Oh and I’ve updated the Song of the Day. I am so over the rain. It’s Another Sunny Day, by Belle & Sebastian.
