I like men. I really do. And I want to like dating. But sometimes the men I date make it virtually impossible to like them or dating.
I agree with everyone who left comments. The guy who was late on Saturday blew his chance. Enough said about that. Sadly, he wasn’t the only man in my world acting like a big baby these last few days.
I got an email early from the car trouble guy. The one who cancelled on me over a week ago. I thought I’d heard the last of him. Yes, I cancelled on him first. Because I was really, really sick. And I got in touch with him within 24 hours to apologize again and make a new date, letting him know that I would rearrange my schedule to make myself available whenever he could make it. I felt it was the least I could do as I’d cancelled at the last minute.
He cancelled at the last minute and then I didn’t hear from him for over a week. And then when I did it was a rather demanding email detailing how busy he’d been and letting me know he’d be available the next day for a date. No other option. As if I should drop whatever plans I had. I didn’t reply. I wasn’t available and wasn’t in the mood to deal with him. He then called and left me a vm which was slightly less irritating but still demanding. Then this morning I got a kind of nasty email asking me again if I was available to see him today. It had a “this is your final offer” tone to it.
Because clearly he is such a god, and I am a mere earthling. I must immediately snap to it a begin worship.
I am not sure what to do, honestly. A part of me wants to send him a reply email, letting him know that I was disappointed to have not heard from him earlier and that I’m no longer interested. The rest of me wants to just ignore him until he goes away.
But wait, there’s more. Tonight I got a vm (I let a lot of calls go to vm) from Saturday afternoon’s first date. The one who was kind of immature and insecure. It was such bizarre message. Usually when a man calls to ask for a second date he either sounds really into you or nervous. This one sounded like he was going through the motions. Like he invested the time (no money, btw, we went dutch – not that that matters one way or the other) for one date and liked me well enough and so we might as well get together again. Seriously, it was kind of an insulting message.
