The Drop Off

  1. I was wrong. He actually read your entry about him.

    I guess it falls under: “ripped them apart on the world wide web and they took the hint” instead.

  2. I’d rather people were just honest about it. Seriously, how hard is that? “Yeah, sorry, I’m just not interested.” is *so* much nicer than “I’ll call!” and then not.

    On the other hand, when I do the “sorry, I’m just not interested” thing, they take it personally, get snippy, then rip me apart on the world wide web. On the upside, I find this funny.

    Still, the games? The games are stupid. I’m not playing. In fact, I’m going to be a giant party pooper and take my ball and go home. See how you like playing without a ball, fucker!

  3. Donna: I’m totally with you. I had someone say to me “listen, you’re great but I’m more interested in someone else right now” and he couldn’t believe how well I took it.

    I explained that after one date I was hardly planning our wedding, and it was nice to hear a reason than he start to pretend like I don’t exist.

  4. I’ve so been there with the crickets. It’s kind of funny, in retrospect, that they even bother with the half-planning the next date via email and then disappear. It’s not like we weren’t keeping our options open for other guys, but we like to keep our records in order, right? It’s not like we’d be devastated after 1-2 dates.

    I actually thought the current flavour-of-the-month (what I’m calling him) had pulled the crickets out on me, but it turned out he’d just assumed that we’d agreed on the Thursday when to me it hadn’t been completely decided and I hadn’t heard from him in several days. So he called me at work saying “I’ll be there in 5 minutes to pick you up” and I was like, “oh”. Men!
