Yup, that’s a statement and not a question. And one that I’m sure that there is a whole slew of people who would race to agree with. I swear to god though, the day I can figure guys out, is the day I’m going to share that secret with all of you. For free! No clue how I could mis-read Friday’s happy hour date, but apparently I did.
Riddle me this: We hung out for 5 hours. We laughed. We flirted. We have a ton in common. He kept asking me if I wanted to go to his parent’s ranch up North. He kept pointing out he has season’s tickets to the Cardinals. He told me numerous times during the date he was having so much fun and hadn’t been on such a great date in years. There was not one awkward moment or silence the entire evening. Okay, I figure this means things are going well. Sure, I know guys say things they don’t mean all the time, but honestly, I was believing him. Sure, we both drank too much, I probably shouldn’t have kissed him (so many times), but there was nothing inappropriate. I went home, he went home. He called me when he got home that night to thank me again for going out with him as he has a great time. I said I did too. He text messaged me the next morning to tell me again what a great time he had and that his phone was still being weird and he’d know to check if he doesn’t hear from me. I respond in kind. That I had a great time, yadda yadda. Then ………… crickets. Stupid me figures he’s having phone issues again so I shoot him a quick note on OkStupid yesterday (as I’m pretty stupid myself in that I don’t have his real e-mail address) jokingly asking how I’m supposed to know if he didn’t get my text or if he’s just ignoring me on purpose. 😉 (yes, i included the lame happy face) I also let him know that I had a great time and would like to see him again.
And nothing ………….. so now I’m the loser/idiot who has sent him a text and then absolutely assuming he didn’t get it, sent an e-mail after that when apparently, he wasn’t responding on purpose (unless of course he dropped his phone in the toilet or died, in which case i still think he should have had an orderly let me know) ………… Really though, what the fuck did I misread here?
