Bullshitter and Valentine's
Because I was THAT sure we were an item.
Let me explain. Our first date was right out of a romance novel. He was tall, cute, well-mannered and charming. Smart, he invented one of the first radial "airplane" motorcycles. Popular. All over Google. In fact, if you're nosy, you can easily find him on Google.
Anyway, our first date lasted 8 hours, and it was wonderful. He asked permission to hold my hand. Texted each other all week long. He called our first date "amazing," and asked me out last Saturday.
We went on a romantic walk around a lake, two vineyards and dinner. It was one of the best dates of my life, and he thought the same.
Then, as we were preparing for Valentine's, I get this text:
"Natalie, I got to be honest. I heard from an old girl friend that I haven't seen in 5 years. And it's messing with my head today." I replied that I would bow out if he wanted to see her, and I got this response:
"Don't want to date her but maybe think I shouldn't date at all for a bit if that makes sense?"
I sadly replied that I understood.
Then late last night I get this confusing text obviously meant for someone else:
"I do :)"
I texted him this morning, that his text was obviously meant for someone else. And I've heard nothing in response. NOTHING. Crickets.
Nice. Why. Do. I. Try. This guy seemed really nice, honest, into me, and genuine. I wish I could turn this post into something humorous, but I just can't right now.
I haven't even told you about the Phone Psycho Guy or the dude I'm meeting tomorrow for happy hour. That should at least be funny.
Staying positive. I simply must, and thank you, Universe, for spinning this sad one right out of my life before I got hurt.
