Love is Jeopardy - Part One

Disclaimer: This is going to be a rant, spanning a few posts in order to keep them manageable. Oh, stop - who are you kidding? You're reading this instead of working anyway.


This whole Crush thing got way out of control. I blame my allergies, hormones and possibly boredom. Long story short, during a chat, I asked if he would want to get together again, and he said sure. A day or two later, I asked if he'd let me buy him a drink over the weekend. His response was that he had tentative plans Saturday night but "had his doubts" they would happen.

I was perfectly content to leave it at that. He, apparently, was not.

He then volunteered that his plans were a date with someone he met on a dating website. "I don't know why I bother," he said. "Fifty percent of these never even happen, and the fifty percent that do, I usually wish they didn't." 

Now, why tell me that if he was interested in me at all

Figuring I had my answer, but not wanting to be rude, I said, "That's why I've basically given up." Just guess what he said. Go ahead - guess. I'll wait. 


  1. He really said that? Yikes. I can't wait to her his answer...but in the mean time I'll wager a guess.

    "You're on dating sites?"

  2. No, he already knew I was on a dating site. :)

  3. Probably something really crass, like "I guess you have"....
