This post has been a long time coming. I’m not sure why I haven’t blogged about this sooner, so I am sorry for the wait.
Remember Camera Man? I believe my last post ripped him to pieces because he wanted to play games? Well, that was my bad. I’m the idiot who sent him the wrong phone number…I guess that is what happen when you are working out and sending messages at the same time. Damn multitasking skills. Anyway, so once I realized my mistake, I did send him a text.
We texted sporadically through out the day. By that night, he was like “Hey…add me on Facebook.” I was like “Hey…I don’t even know you.” He said the reason why was because he “had a lot of stuff about his business on his page.”
This isn’t freshman year of college anymore. I don’t add 500 people because I think I am going to be friends with him and meet them at parties. This is real life. Once I shut him down on that, he kind of shut down. You think my comment of “we don’t even know each other” would have maybe sparked a thought of…”hey let’s get coffee?”
So, I have since stopped talking to Camera Man.
Last weekend, I was in DC. Glorious, pre-government shutdown DC. Upon getting off of the metro, I met up with my friend, and we began the walk to our hotel. On our journey, we met up with a flight crew sitting outside for happy hour. The guys (pilots) were basically hitting on us….”we want to go out tonight…what is there to do” “where are you girls from?” “Ohio…I was born in Akron!” It was honestly about 15 minutes of talk. Even the nice flight attendants were trying to push them in the right direction. Honestly, if they would have asked, I would have sat down right there and have them buy me a drink and dinner. It was a fancy restaurant… who would have said no. So, after 15 minutes of useless chatter, my friend and I walked away.
Honestly men, my plea to you is to up your game. Seal the deal. Don’t just talk…do something.
As for the update on the actual dating life…there is really nothing. I’ve winked, I’ve chatted in email conversations that receive no chatter back. It’s kind of sad, but that’s the way things go sometimes.
Here’s to hope. Here’s to sealing the deal.
