Should have listened

Standard

This post is a follow-up to this one, so make sure you read that first!

Well I think I was right all along. My gut was telling me he wasn’t interested, but I let myself get talked out of it. I need to listen to my instincts, seriously! They’re usually spot on.

So the Tuesday after our date (meaning, the very next day), everything seemed to be pretty good. I
sent my usual “Good morning!” text and we kinda went from there like normal. I wasn’t really getting a
reading from him on how things were between us so by lunch time, I just flat out asked, “So, what did
you think of last night? Are you interested in going out again sometime?” You all know me. I am a fan
of the direct approach! He texts back, “I wouldn’t mind going out again and seeing where this goes.”
WAHOO!

So everything is fine on Tuesday. Wednesday, he’s a little quieter, no biggie. Work and he has fireman
stuff to do every Wednesday night. Thursday, I don’t get much of anything. Friday, I get a “morning”
response to my wake-up message, and that’s it all day. Saturday, nothing. Sunday, I text him, “Hey, you
interested in getting together sometime this week before you leave town?” He says, “Sure. Have the
inspection this week so I’ll check my schedule and get back to you.” Does he ever get back to me? Nope.
So Saturday morning, the morning he was getting ready for his vacation, I sent, “Have a safe, fun trip!”
and I got back, “Thanks!”

And that’s it. I’ve given up. If he wants to hang out, he has my number. But I have this sneaking suspicion he won’t call or text me. So.. there you have it. Ball in his court, I’ve put forth enough effort.

Onto the next one.. wherever he may be. (FYI, if you know, please drop me a line. I’m running out of places to look.)

AND.. I have no idea why the formatting on this post is all messed up, but there you go.

  1. I can’t tell whether or not he’s interested from this, but I can tell you this:

    The formatting is screwed up because of where the line breaks are. If you edit the post and go to the end of each of the one/two work lines and hit delete (not backspace), it should join with the previous line, and look normal again.

    I know that seems to miss the point of the whole post, but it’s what I have to contribute.

  2. well crap, i certainly wish guys came with some sort of manual or decoder ring. why would he respond to your texts if he wasn’t interested? most guys would just ignore them. plus, i can’t think of an easier way to turn someone down than via text message, and he didn’t do that.

    you’re right though. you’ve done your part. he knows you’re interested. the ball is in his court. now let’s just hope he removes his thumbs from his ass in time to pick it up and run with it. 😉
