Last night was another Twitter girls night out. Me, Lostplum, @meghanberes, and @damiella all met up for lychee martinis down on the LES (Lower East Side for out-of-towners). As we were getting ready to leave I checked my iphone and saw this message:
“I wanted to say that you looked really nice today! And I don’t know why you don’t have a serious boyfriend. I really don’t know. Not everyone is a jerk like me.”
It was from a man I went out with briefly. (I’m not going to say who. That’s not relevant to this story.) I guess I passed him on the street or in the subway on my way to the bar.
Anyway, I found the timing on that just hysterical. Considering.
So here’s my question: Do men suddenly find me (or all women) more appealing and desirable after our relationships are over? Does the magic I WANT HER button light up right after we tell them to go to hell? And if so, is there some truth in the pathetic game that some women play, being standoffish and mean to men from the get-go?
Or is the true law of attraction that people only really want what they cannot have?
