I left a message for Fred last night and he didn't call back. I was pretty sure that he wasn't going to call, but now I'm certain. I'm sorry, but if you spend the entire evening with someone, ask to sleep in her bed, and kiss her, the least you can do is call the next day and say thanks for letting me crash at your place and nice to meet you.
Ok, not true. The very least you can do is never call. But, if that's what you choose to do, then you are not shy, you are not playing games, you are just an asshole. I'm not saying that I would have been thrilled if he'd called just to say thanks, but no thanks. I might have complained, but I wouldn't have thought he was an asshole. Geez, if knew that this was going to happen, that we couldn't even be friends or hang out one more time, I would have walked myself home or made him sleep on the couch. What was I thinking?
So, contrary to one man's opinion that I might be attracted to more "adult" guys and that's why I'm pulling in the Republicans, I am afraid that you are mistaken. I'm attracted to the same emotionally distant, mysterious, unavailable men that I always have been (thanks Dad!). But, hey, who doesn't fall for that once in a while? (There are exceptions, obviously, or I would never have had a boyfriend.) The difference these days is that I figure it out a lot quicker and I don't put up with as much bullshit and I don't stop my life for them.
Officially moving on now....
It appears that I have company to the baseball game on Friday. Very good news indeed.
Grateful for: good news.
