Oh please, do you really think I do that? You should know by now that if I like a guy, I pretty much put it all out there (and inevitably send him screaming in the opposite direction). I don’t play games (which, in and of itself, is probably some sort of a game). If there is any perception by anyone that I ever play hard to get, then chances are, I’m just not interested. I don’t hesitate to call a guy, which I know is not the ‘best’ thing in the world to do, but whatever. I don’t hesitate to tell someone I had a good time (if I did). I don’t hesitate to suggest getting together again. I realize these are all pretty bad things to do as I’ll never know if he really wants to see me again, or if he’s just going along with my suggestion. I don’t do this all the time. In fact, I rarely do it as I rarely actually like anyone I go out with above and beyond deeming them sufficiently non moronic enough for a 2nd chance.
As all two of you know, I had 3 dates in the last week or so. Date #1 was tall and funny and I kinda liked him. He suggested we go out again and then promptly fell off the face of the earth. I texted him a quick ‘check in’ the following week to be met with an enthusiastic ‘thanks for checking in! we definitely have to get together again’! Yey me. Until he fell off the face of the earth again. Now, while I am more than willing to check in once and am more than willing to believe someone when they say they’ve been swamped with work and kids, I am NOT willing to follow up a second time or give a second chance should he fall off the face of the earth again. And he did. Awesome.
Burger date #1 from Friday went well. He was funny and sweet and shared his burger with me. We had a great time and he suggested we get together again. And then fell off the face of the earth.
Burger date #2 from Friday went okay. He suggested we get together again which I was still on the fence about. Until he took that decision out of my hands and also fell off the face of the earth.
While I know that people are busy with lives and work and kids and dogs and whatever, I also know that if they had any sort of enthusiasm about me, they would touch base with me in the next couple of days. And NONE of them have. Gone, apparently, are the days of ‘good mornings’ or ‘how is your day going’ or ‘have a good night’ text messages from guys. At least from guys that I go out with. Apparently my suspicions are true. I am an awesome first date when I don’t give a crap about the guy. Apparently I am also easily forgettable in that I’m not quite awesome enough for a 2nd date. Am I sad about about any of these guys? Nope. Am I surprised? A little bit. Will I call or text any of them? Hell no.
Hard to get? I am now………… 😉
