The dates that didn’t happen. This guy I was really excited by…at first. He’s Dominican and I liked the look of him.
But something always felt off in his approach. Like he was throwing out a line but not interested in if it actually caught something.
Anyway, we were supposed to meet for a drink after work. I was feeling tired and stressed… And asked for a rain check.
I offered a morning hike on that coming Sunday morning. He accepted and seemed actually excited.
Well, it so happened I had a girls night party Saturday night. You can probably guess where this is headed….
After that, he definetely put in less effort. I get it. Totally.
We rescheduled plans… Loosely. happy hour after work…
That morning he sent me a text saying that he’d been thinking of me . Sweet. Especially as I really felt he had written me off as a flake. I told him as much and got a smiley face back.
The day of those plans, I waited and waited… And then finally around 8:45 he messaged that he was just getting home from work. What was I doing? Getting ready for bed. I had to be at work early
We chatted by text for another 30 minutes or so. Since then, nothing.
Seems like this was a case of not meant to be 😄
” I used her she used me but neither one cared ”
That’s what sticks in my mind. Just two lonely people. Looking to not feel quite so lonely.
But not ever going to fully connect.
