Scratch That

25 Feb

So we can scratch that date.  Partly because I am still in more pain than I thought I would be in.  But also because I think I would have been stood up if I didn’t end it.

We messaged each other a lot yesterday.  Had really great conversations.  He chose the time and place for the date (because I am really working on letting a man be a man and plan all of that shit).  I told him yesterday evening, as I was signing off, to please confirm with me tomorrow.  I gave him my phone number, and told him he could either call, text, or IM.  It all goes to my phone.  He said absolutely, and he told me he was very excited to meet me.

As a side note, I require someone to confirm with me the day of the date.  Why, you ask?  I have been stood up three fucking times. Three times I have been sitting in a bar/restaurant and waiting for ducheros.  And that is just damn inexcusable in today’s age of technology.  So I no longer show up if I don’t have confirmation.  And amazingly enough…I have never gotten a text ‘yelling’ at me for standing some dude up.  So I am guessing I would have been stood up even more if I show up anyways.  ANYWAYS…

I didn’t hear from him all day.  I finally sent him a message (because he never gave up his digits) and let him know I am still in a great amount of pain, and can we reschedule?  I didn’t hear back from him.  I still haven’t heard back from him.  So what the fuck ever.

I am just tired of all the game playing.  I still have a few guys that want to meet/date me.  And I am not sure I want to keep doing this to myself.

And has anyone else noticed a direct correlation between the hotness of the guy to the douchebaggery quotient?  I have.  And it may require its own post…

Love, Esme

    I have noticed! I am in the same spot and about ready to give up on dating.

      I swear, it’s like God said ‘I’m going to make you hot, but because of that I am going to take away every last sense of kindness and decency’.

    Oh yeah, I’ve been stood up twice now. I know how that feels. What is with these guys who think they can do this type of thing anyway?

    Makes me think that the universe is sending me a sign that says “I’m saving you from wasting your time!”

      TOTALLY a sign from the universe, the fates, what have you. It just pisses me off that I get all dressed up for a douchebag…who can’t even appreciate it!!!

    In today’s world, there’s no excuse a guy to stand up a woman. Texting is so easy! I like your confirmation idea and proactiveness!

Speak your peace
