Mr Metro...

All right, all right…I’ve finally been bugged enough to write another entry (even bribed with cookies - Cave Cibum), though I admit I haven’t been on another date. You might be asking yourself “why hasn’t she been on another date?”…and I could answer that (though I’d wonder why I needed to)…but instead I’m going to tell you a story…

One day in early April I leave my office, and walk out into the sunshine. A nice looking gentleman walking by strikes up a conversation with me…we chat while walking to the metro…he offers his number and from there…we part ways…

Now, I, of course ask every possible person I’ve met in my entire life “should I call this guy?!” (some decisions should not be made on one’s own)…and pretty much 80% of people said “no, you shouldn’t…a guy should call the girl”. Of course I ignored that suggestion and called Mr Metro…

Instead of getting together immediately (as anyone would after talking to me for 10 minutes, duh)…we start emailing until he has some free time…then he starts texting. Now, you all know I’ve been pretty patient with the gentleman so far…(read some previous posts if you need some clarification!) but extreme texting annoys me. MAKE PLANS! I don’t need a modern penpal!! (especially one who writes “do you like older men” – what is this, email porn?”)

So it comes down to a Friday night text at 10:30pm from Mr Metro saying “what are you doing now?”…and really I got extremely annoyed (probably more from the fact that an accurate response would have been “sleeping until your text woke me!” then from the text itself)…but either way I didn’t respond…

Cut to a few days ago and WAM…an email from Mr Metro (YES the FIRST time I’d heard from him since that text!!!) - “hey, sorry I’ve been busy, I switched jobs…how are you? Want to get together?”

WTF?!

Does he really think that’s an acceptable email at this point? OR that he’s going to get a positive reply…um, no…

That's a lot like this guy I've been talking to on OKCupid... he kept asking me all these questions, then out of the blue was like "let's meet this weekend." My reply was "...but you haven't told me anything about yourself yet..." He sent me a short reply, but not much else.
