@SimoneGrant Help! My brain is tired… What’s it called when you send a text to lots of people in the hopes that SOMEONE will answer?
@JugglingJenna Despair? J/K, I call it a “mass text.”
And hence, the title.
So, remember that guy who sent me the Icky Text? Well I told him that I would go out with him. Because I’m trying to keep an open mind and clearly I have bad judgement, still.
Then he immediately screwed it up. Instead of asking me out for an actual date, I got a series of texts asking me to meet him that night for drinks. In my book, asking a person out for a date means more than 4 hours in advance, preferably more than 24 hours in advance. The first time it happened, I legitimately had plans and told him so. And then, a few days later, I got a similar text (drinks that night). No notice. I was busy and told him…
The next time he texted (drinks, no notice) I didn’t bother to reply. Or the next time. The texts, they started to seem like mass texts. Like he was blasting every single woman he knew to see who was available each night. Who was willing to keep him company, or whatever.
Which I’ve heard of guys doing. Sadly.
And then it got sadder. The guy was going out of town for part of the summer. Summer rental. You NYers know what I’m talking ’bout. The kind of place that people invite their city friends out to for the weekend – not mentioning any names – not the Hamptons. Now, for the past few weeks I keep getting texts telling me I should come visit his vacation place.
Like that’s going to happen.
But I can’t help wondering… how many women are getting these texts? And is anyone desperate enough (for attention, for a break from the sweltering city heat) to take him up on his offer?
