Overwhelmed with stuff today but sneaking a moment to write this.
I made my bed and I now I have to lie in it. I had that bad date on Friday night. No big deal. I have lots of bad dates (too many, but that’s a whole other thing). He emailed me promptly the next morning asking me out again and I didn’t reply. Very unlike me but I was having one of those, I’m taking the day off, kind of days. A few of my smart readers pointed out that that wasn’t wise as he might mistake that for an open door and continue to contact me.
Well, last night he called and left a message AND sent an email saying how anxious he is to settle down and get married.
So now I have to reject him after he’s really gone out there and stuck his neck out.
I feel bad. It would have been so much better if I’d just sent him a polite email the morning after our dating saying that it was nice meeting him but that I just wasn’t feeling it.
I was jerk, and now I have to be an even bigger jerk. Lame.
