I finally talked to a guy I’ve been wanting to chat with for a little while… and it turned out kinda shitty. He’d bounced his gf drama off me, asking what I’D do in the same scenario, both as her and as him. I gave my opinion and he was all, “RIGHT? Exactly.”
So they broke up, and I made my (awkward weird and fumbly text) move. I told him I thought he was pretty cool and that it’d be neat to hang out, get a drink, get to know each other better; I would like to be friends.
(I had some help from a friend to edit my original text so I didn’t sound like a complete toolbag.)
The text was sent in the morning. The next day, I hadn’t heard back at all, where before I sent that we’d been sorta chatting. Then I saw his “ex” had posted on Facebook calling him “babe”. Ok. Flags waving wtf.
So, me being a direct sorta lady, I asked him if he still had a gf. He responded in the affirmative. Well all righty. We haven’t talked since that day. He showed up where I was hanging out, his gf tagging along. At least I was wearing my sexy dress. Felt kinda crappy, but that’s just ilfe.
Feeling so much better today! Last night, a friend of his was posting on my Facebook stuff, so I randomly messaged him and we ended up chatting for almost four hours!
We have SO much in common. Every time one of us would say something about ourselves, the other would just be all, “YES! EXACTLY. SAME HERE.”
It’s incredibly uplifting just to talk to someone who understands you because they are the same. I think I wanna give this guy a hug. For like, ten minutes.
