Remember Coach? Awesome first date, asked me out for a second date right away, talked about how much he wanted to have a serious relationship. But he couldn’t plan a simple date to save his life and he bragged about being a mamma’s boy.
Well, he’s out of the picture. Not because of anything that happened. Well, not from my perspective.
He cancelled our not quite planned second date (He’d asked me out for “Sunday night”, I said yes. We had no specific plan to do anything. No time or place.) because of last minute family stuff. I was completely fine with it. I told him it was no big deal, that we’re grown-ups and grown-ups have responsibilities. Then I had to cancel the night we’d next planned on meeting because I was just laid off and quite frankly in no frame of mind to go out and flirt.
Then I was out of town for week. I told him I was going away, where I was going and how long I’d be gone. I told him that I’d like to see him when I got back. He sent me a text a couple of days after I left saying something about feeling like I was blowing him off. I replied that that was ridiculous. That I was out of town, and that I was looking forward to seeing him when I was back. Mind you, he texted. He didn’t call. Or email where he could have written more.
Then a couple of days later he sent another text asking me if I wanted to get together the next night. But I was still away and wasn’t going to be back then. I replied and told him so. I suggested we get together later in the week, when I was back. I gave him a couple of potential days that I’d be available.
He didn’t reply. I figured maybe he was feeling a little taken for granted (why, I have no idea, but then he always seemed a little on the needy side) and so I texted again a day later and asked him if he wanted to get together one of the days I suggested. Why did I text instead of call or email? Well, because I really didn’t want to talk with him right then. I was busy and stressed out and dealing with family stuff and kind of feeling like he should have replied to me the day before. I felt like I was going the extra mile by sending that second text.
Which he didn’t even answer. He completely blew it off. So this guy who was so into me on the first date that I thought it was a little creepy then goes and blows me off because I cancelled on him after getting laid off and then had to put off our next date for a week while I dealt with some family stuff out of town.
Whatever. I feel like I dodged a bullet on this one. I really have no patience for that kind of nonsense.
