I thought that title was a bit more chipper than ‘damn, today sucks’ don’t you think? It has been a typical Monday though. Boo. I had a good weekend though. A decent date on Friday. A decent comedy show on Saturday. A decent day on the lake on Sunday. Now, I could end my post right here and we’d be all caught up, but that’s not really why you all
are silly enough to read my stuff. You want to hear about my dating. Or lack thereof. Or my ongoing retardedness with TD. (which I wish there was a lack thereof).
Let’s start with the most annoying first. And I’m not even talking about all the scary looking men and their grandfathers that have ‘favorited’ me on Match. It’s just bad. No, really. Anyway, I told you all about TD and his awesome declaration of ‘never’ to me. What I don’t think I made clear was his insistence that things didn’t happen the way they actually happened. He doesn’t remember stating that I was ‘the one’. He doesn’t remember that he’s the one that pulled me back in in January and again in February when I tried to walk away. He doesn’t remember his numerous text messages and phone calls regarding how amazing I was and that he missed me. He ‘remembers’ (and by remember, I mean is absolutely certain that his deluded version is the actual version) that I’m the one that always came back. That’s he was ready for me to walk away and never see him again every time. That I’m the one that always initiated ‘boundary issues’. That I’m the one pretty much at fault. Sure, he’s sorry and feels horribly guilty, but for all the wrong reasons. Instead of feeling bad for initiating any boundary issues, he feels bad for going along with what he thinks I initiated. You get the idea. Me, bad guy. Him, victim. Yey. The worst part of all of this is that contrary to popular belief that all bitches are good arguers, is that I suck at it. I get nervous and
rarely never want to intentionally make anyone feel bad. I will either laugh nervously or totally clam up. I did both of these things with him. I remember it all. Every single word, action and event that happened. I didn’t ‘remind’ him of any of it though. I guess I didn’t feel the need to ‘win’ this disagreement. I now feel like a total fool however as he still thinks that it was all me. And probably still wonders why I have had such a hard time letting go since all he remembers is agreeing to ‘date’ and not that he had me convinced of ‘our’ future together. Eh, whatever. A blog friend asked me if he was slightly autistic. Although I do think he may suffer from Asberger Syndrome (or just being an ass), I fear that I am the moron in this scenario.
Enough about him though. Let’s talk more about my date from Friday! You remember, the good one? The one where he said he had a great time and would love to see me again? Yeah, that one! Haven’t heard a word from him. Apparently I’m not all that worried about it as I haven’t tried contacting him either. Boo.
As it’s the holiday season which is apparently some unwritten code for onine dating frenzy, I have several men asking me out. It’s gotta be the season as I haven’t gotten this much attention all year. Here’s the rundown:
E-Harm Guy #1 ~ was supposed to meet tomorrow but he needs to reschedule as he was actually
stupid silly enough to schedule on his friggin’ birthday and his friends are taking him out. I’ll give him a pass for that. Not sure that I’ll be attracted to him, but he seems really nice. We are supposed to get together sometime next week.
E-Harm Guy #2 ~ could quite possibly be 55+ but claims to ‘only’ be 49. No clue if I’ll follow through on meeting him as he also said he’s 5’10” which pretty much means 5’8″
Match Guy #1 ~ pics are pretty darn cute. He seems a bit ‘artsy’ though. I’m anything but. He wants to meet up sometime next week (what is wrong with this week, people?)
Match Guy #2 ~ might actually be the older brother of E-Harm #2 guy. Wants to meet for ‘a beverage’ at an outdoor mall and then find a ‘suitable place to talk’. Uhm, does this mean we’re not going to a bar? Supposed to meet him on Thursday.
Match Guy #3 ~ could very well be a big perv. Not sure. He seems funny, but his profile is a bit iffy.
Now I realize that some of you are of the mindset that I should not go out with anyone that I am less than excited about as it’s just a waste of mine and his time. And normally, I would agree. However, these are special circumstances. The holidays are coming up and I need to capitalize on my faux popularity while I can. I am currently in my ‘old’ mindset of not wanting to judge too harshly regarding pics and profiles and subsequently miss out on someone good (and by good, I mean not absolutely horrendous). Mostly though, I need to keep myself busy (not that my 2 jobs leave much time to ever be bored) and away from TD. Yeah, you all knew he was going to come up yet again in this post, right?
OH! And the gal that I met last week at the Match Mixer that totally invited me to the mixer that’s tonight (that I didn’t get asked to) never contacted me! Guess who she did go out of her way to
stalk track down on Match (which had to have been hard to do as she knew next to nothing about him) and message? Yup, that would be TD. They talked for all of 2.7 seconds and didn’t even exchange names. Geesh…….
