So last week I got an email from a guy I met a few years ago. We’d met, had one date and nothing ever came of it. I don’t remember much, but I guess I liked him well enough (told him I’d see him again) and then he started seeing someone else (? seriously, I’m hazy on the details).
So anyway, I get an email from this guy with his picture attached (to jog my memory, I assume, or else to remind me how handsome he is which is just ick). And he tells me we went out, once, a few years ago and he still recalls that date fondly. But that he really wasn’t free to date then. But now he is and he wants to know if I’m single. And would I like to go out with him.
So, I can look at this in a few different ways: 1) The guy shouldn’t have gone out with me back then, if he wasn’t free to date. 2) Maybe this is an awesome thing. I mean, he remembers me after all of this time. That’s gotta mean something. 3) I am not really dateable right now. My life is kinda a mess and will be for another week/few weeks until I get past some life and work stuff.
My instinct is almost always to try and say yes. To be open to possibilities and see what happens. But in this case, I’m leaning towards no. Not because of anything specific. Just because. And if I end up regretting it… Then I guess I can always send him an email sometime in the future and ask him for another chance.
