Mixed [Text] Messages
I'm not sure why the text messages took this turn, for prior texts had been your average back and forth. But the texts never returned to normal.0
One evening, I went on a very nice date with a smart, well-dressed, dynamic guy. He chose a wonderful restaurant. We shared a lovely meal, and he sat next to me in the booth, which I liked. (Better for meal sharing.) We had a night cap, and he dropped me home. Sure mid-date my mind began to wander, and I had bedroom flashbacks of another guy I am sort of pseduo-dating. Maybe a solid fifteen minutes passed and missed whatever my date was saying. I might have excused myself to check my email and phone a couple times. Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly present. It was me, not him. I would go out with him again.
Our schedules conflicted, and we both had out of town guests. I had other dates then was scheduled to be out of town. He had yet to officially ask me on a second date – in regards to getting something on the calendar. I figured he noticed my distance or read my harsh relationship writing or maybe he just didn’t like me that much. Then, just before I packed my things to head out of town for the weekend, I started getting text messages from him.
“I miss your smiling face” said one.
“I am at a boring dinner & keep looking to the door hoping you are going to walk in” said another.
“Why haven’t I seen your beautiful eyes and smile?” and so on and so on.
There are more of a caliber so cheesy they make you puke in your mouth a little bit, so I will spare you. I’m not sure why the text messages took this turn, for prior texts had been your average back and forth. While I appreciate compliments, this is a bit over the top especially in light of the fact that he has yet to ask me out again. And frankly, I don’t have patience for it. I stopped responding after the first “I miss you” text but continue receiving sms flattery ad naseum.
To date, he has yet to ask me out save once suggesting we “catch up.” And guys wonder why girls go crazy from their mixed messages… in this case, mixed text messages.
