I really need to start a blog called "Lame Adventures in Dating". ha. Anyway, a few weeks ago, I invited a guy (widower, two kids) that writes for the same website as me out for coffee. We talked for about an hour and a half. I made him laugh a lot, thought he was having a good time because I certainly did. I just KNEW I was going to hear from him again and get invited on a real date. Or at the very least, I'd have a cool guy friend. He instant messaged me the next day. We talked awhile and he joked that it took me awhile to instant message him back because he must have made such a bad first impression. From that point on, he started commenting on my facebook page HARD, like everytime I updated my status or posted anything, he was there with a comment. Then I stop hearing from him and he stopped posting on my page. If I imed or texted him, he'd respond, but not really keep the convo going. I didn't understand. A couple weeks go by of this. So after a couple dead end communications, I stop talking to him. I spoke to my parents about it on Monday and Dad's like, "You should try again. Ask him out for coffee in a casual style". So I talk to him this Tuesday and tell him that I'm off my coffee fast and does he want to celebrate by going out and having more coffee with me? Hes like, "sure, l'll let you know Wednesday evening." TWO DAYS go by, and nothing. What's even lamer is that I see him sign online (i know i'm on his buddylist because he's imed me before) and he says nothing. I sent out an email about something for the website to him and the others in our group, so even if he forgot, you'd think that would jar his memory. So I texted him on Thursday night and said, "Didn't hear from you Wednesday, so I'm assuming that means you're busy or couldn't find a babysitter. Made other plans, have a happy 4th of july!" He messages me back saying, "Yeah, sorry, things got pretty intense last night and I forgot to get back to you. Have a happy 4th of July". So, yeah, I'm done. Ugh. Why does it have to be so hard?
