So the great debate was whether or not to give this guy my phone number. As he somewhat demanded it instead of asking politely for it, right away, my gut instinct said not to. Then I read some comments saying to go ahead. Ugh. I know I’ve given my number out right away before and honestly, I wasn’t worried about him being a weirdo or a stalker, it was more in the way he gave me the ultimatum of sending my number or no communication that made me not want to. Whatever. I thought is was a bit assholian (GG original word) of him.
His main claim was that he hated typing and thought it was a ‘pain’ and wanted to have a conversation in real time. On top of that, he just sounded kinda negative in his messages and profile. I did decide, in the end, to send him my phone number. I gotta recoup my membership fee somehow, right (and, as everyone pointed out, it would at least make for a blog post – you’re welcome)? So he texts me this morning. What? Isn’t texting the same as typing, just on a smaller keyboard?
Here’s how it went:
him: Hi there. This is the stalker! lmao
me: Hi (insert name here)
him: How are you doing GG?
me: Great, thanks! How are you on this gorgeous day? Anything fun planned?
him: Getting ready to have some brunch or breakfast, whatever, and don’t know what else
me: 11am = brunch (smiley emoticon). So your profile says you like to cook?
him: (45 minutes later, mind you) yes
I didn’t bother to respond. Really? He tried this hard for my number not even to make an actual call like he claimed, he took no less than 10 minutes between responses (and 45 at the end) and this is what I got? No ‘conversation’. No engaging. No questions. No nothin’. What an idiot…….
