Latest dating issue: I went out with a guy a couple of times earlier in the summer. He was nice enough but just wasn’t for me (short version of why: 36 & no sense of fiscal responsibility, no car, no ambition, relates more to his 20-year-old sister than to his parents who he hates), so when I didn’t hear from him for a few weeks after our second date I thought I was home free. WRONG. He called me one Friday evening. I was out having fun, so I didn’t answer. Ok, let’s face it, I wasn’t going to answer anyway. A couple more weeks went by and again I thought I was home free! NO! He called again! A few more weeks later? OH yeah, and this time with a voicemail! And always on like, a Friday night!
Well tonight is a Wednesday and my phone rang and it was him again. The last time he called was two weeks ago and of course I didn’t answer figuring that he HAD to have gotten the hint by this point! This time he didn’t leave a voicemail, however two minutes later I got a text message that asked me why I wasn’t answer his calls! TAKE A HINT, right?? So now I’m stuck with three crappy choices:
- Continue to ignore and hope he just goes away.
- Text back a lie that I’m seeing someone.
- Text back and just say that I just don’t think we are compatible romantically.
What’s a girl to do? Why in the hell can’t someone normal want to date me? Look, I know I have my faults, but I’m not the worst chick out there. More horrifying girls to look at and hang out with are in relationships, yet here I sit: 35 and single dealing with guy after guy, each one less desirable than the previous. What the hell?
Oh well. I have to keep looking at the positives in life. At least I have a nice rack.
