Again. What else is new. Okay, you all said to sit back and do nothing with TallDark, which I am perfectly capable of doing. As he does seem nervous and ‘new to it all’, it’s just good manners to send him a ‘thank you and a nice meeting you’ message, I would do that for anyone. Which I did. In a short e-mail to him (as we don’t have each other’s phone numbers). Yeah, so I pretty much ignored what you all told me to do. What is wrong with me? Ugh. Anyway, I woke up this morning to a nice e-mail from him that he had sent at 1:15am after getting home from his game/subsequent bar bonding time with said teammates. That has left me no clearer on his thought process. Awesome. So here, my dating coaches, are the 2 e-mails. The one I sent to him, and the one he sent to me.
From Me to Him
I just wanted to thank you again for tonight. I had a terrific time meeting you. I feel bad that you were late to your game though. I had no idea we were there so long (apparently although I wear a watch, I don’t often look at it when I’m having a good time).
I hope your game goes well and that the guys didn’t give you too hard of a time for showing up late and/or for the subsequent salad ordering. ;-p
It also occurred to me as I was going to text you a quick ‘thank you’ on my way home, that I don’t actually have your number, nor do you have mine. Duh, so here you go (and please refrain from writing it on random bathroom walls in questionable parts of town). 🙂 xxx-xxx-xxxx
From Him to Me
You’re so funny. I was actually on time so no issues there. I cannot believe we were there for 3 1/2 hours, I’m very sorry I had to leave to fast, I felt very bad that I did not give you a proper goodbye.
My number is xxx-xxx-xxxx. Feel free to txt or call anytime. Its really late so I’m going to bed. thank you again for restoring my faith in dating….I had a great time.
Nice, right? Although I am dying to know what the ‘proper goodbye’ would have consisted of as well as wanting to send off a cheeky ‘you can make it up to me next time’ message, I won’t. I will sit. And wait. No really, I will this time. I do believe I’ve just made a new friend. Crap. I’m just not quite sure what to do with this …….. huh
