So now I am being courted by a bodybuilder. Or maybe he’s a weightlifter. I don’t quite know, exactly. Hell, I think I am being courted by him. He was a client of mine years ago and after posting an article on Facebook that must have outed me as a single gal, he sent me a FB message asking if I’d like to go out with him. I said sure and ever since I’ve gotten cryptic text messages from him.
We attempted to schedule a date last week but he cancelled 3 hours before the allotted time. This pissed me off, of course, but I am trying to be nicer, kinder, and gentler so I haven’t made a fuss about it. Actually, I make no fuss at all. He texts me and I respond with the least amount of effort. He hasn’t tried to reschedule anything and he has never picked up the phone.
Honestly, what is going on?
Why does he keep texting me? When I don’t text back he resends the text until I do. I have to admit I like his confidence that he believes the transmission failed rather than I chose not to respond.
I wish he would pick up the phone and call me. It’s been so long since I last had any contact with him, I feel like he’s a stranger. Back when I built his Website, I was in a relationship so I gave him no thought other than as a means to pay my mortgage. In a 5 minute phone call I would know if I liked him and vice versa. Then we could stop this unending back and forth.
I so want to text him back something like: Hulk, I’m not into this texting crap. Call me if you wish to proceed.
The problem is anything more than a simple reply sounds insane.
Oh my gosh, I just had an epiphany! I COULD CALL HIM!
The issue though is suddenly the distribution of power changes… or does it? Clearly I would have the bigger set of balls and that could be problematic. It doesn’t matter… all I want is to get out of this weird limbo land.
