I’m not sure what textbook this would be taken from exactly, but it is classic behaviour from someone who shall remain nick-nameless. Nope, this isn’t going to be a whiny post about ‘woe is me, i don’t understand’, as I am past all of that nonsense and have just accepted that things are the way they are. I can’t worry about the things that I can’t control (damn, I sound ‘together’, huh?). Let’s think of this more as an illustration. Of a repeated pattern.
We all know that W and I did not end up getting together last night. Sickness, web concert, whatever. I ended up speaking to him (yes, actually on the phone) twice though. And both times he suggested doing something today. As I was already in my ‘whatever’ mode due to my total lack of self respect from earlier in the day, I said okay. With no real anticipation of actually getting together. So he asked me to text him when I was done working today as he really wanted to see me before he leaves town tomorrow morning. Again, whatever. So here, my friends is what transpired:
Me: Hi W, I hope you’re feeling better today. I opted out of work today and am just finishing up with a home inspector on the property that I have an offer in on.
Him: I’m feeling better, but still not 100%, whaaaa, whaaaaa, whaaaaaa. How are you?
Me: Aside from a freaky text I received last night, I’m good, thanks. 🙂
Him: Freaky text, do tell!
Me: Uh, as you were the author of the text, you know all about it
Him: Yeah, sorry about that.
The End. That all took place 5 hours ago.
No mention whatsoever about getting together today. (and be proud of me everyone) I certainly wasn’t going to bring it up. This is what he does. He suggests things but then never mentions them again. Just like his suggestion on Sunday to do something on Monday. Monday rolls around and no mention of doing anything, just inane text messages.
Now, please keep in mind that this is the same guy that couldn’t wait to see me again when we 1st met and every time I would suggest a day, he would suggest a day sooner. Saw him 3 times that 1st week. This is also the guy who couldn’t wait to call me to let me know he was on his way home a day early from the mountains and wanted to see me. This is also the guy that apparently loses total recall abilities after 2 weeks of no bike rides 😉 poor guy ……….
And this, my friends, is why I asked the hottie personal trainer if he wanted to meet up for drinks sometime. 😉 I’ll let you know when I hear back. Which will of course be 2 days from now.
