There’s this guy I was emailing back and forth with on match. He never asked for my phone number/to chat and so we never did. I was kinda looking forward to meeting him, but also not. You see, he’s got lots of great qualities but in some ways is just not the kind of guy I feel comfortable dating.
In one big way, actually. Physically. He’s attractive. And I can think of many women I know who would think he’s cute. But he’s a big guy. Not fat. Big. Tall and broad and a little cuddly. Probably played football when he was younger. That type.
And while I don’t have a physical type and have no height requirements, I don’t particularly like to date men who are much more than a foot taller than me. Or much more than twice my weight. It makes me feel uncomfortable.
Anyway… I wanted to meet him anyway. Even though I knew he was physically outside the range of guys I usually feel comfortable with. And we had plans for this past Saturday. And then he said that he was having potential scheduling issues and could we change the time. And I suggested that we just make it one night this week, instead. He agree, thinking it was a good idea and we decided to meet tonight.
And then I got an invitation (Sunday, I think) to go with Mr. Dinner Date to a really fabulous event tonight. Something I really want to see. And I emailed big, cuddly guy and told him the almost truth. I told him the event in question and told him I got a last minute invite to attend (I didn’t mention it was a date) and could we reschedule. He wrote back and said, no problem. But then did not reply when I wrote back to suggest other dates/times. So I guess the date is cancelled now. Not ever gonna happen.
So basically, I cancelled a date with person A to go out with person B because person B dangled a hot ticket in front of me. And now I’m feeling selfish and greedy. I’m a jerk.
I’d make a lousy golddigger.
