I've been turning the tables on these fellas like it's my job. (If only I was paid to date and entertain the masses with this blog, that should be a 2017 resolution, make money for being myself....G, help me!)
Anyways, let's dig in.
Dinner with Antonio. He texts to reconfirm, "7:30 still good?" "Yep."
Our interactions are ice cold and it's very obvious I am unimpressed with him/don't really want to see him at this point.
I walk in 15 minutes late, tap him on the shoulder, say hey, and FIRST thing out of his mouth... "Scale of 1-7 how upset are you?"
E: "Upset? Ummmm, a 0? Why would I be upset?"
(being upset shows you give a fuck and clearly guys don't want to sniff that you might actually wanna date them so obviously I'm super pissed but can't admit it THAT easily)
A: "Well, I didn't really know if you'd show up, to be honest..."
E: "You have something I need so I had no other viable options, lucky for you." (my jewelry)
A: "Well, it's nice to see you, how have you been?"
Small chatter about nothing exciting for 15-20min. I work hard to not smile and gaze into the distance often.
E: "I'm not mad/upset, I don't care that you're still on tinder, I am too but I didn't hear from you since last Friday and then you pop up with a screenshot matching with my BFF and the statement you weren't following up or anything? Why bother sending that if you aren't following up with me?"
A: "Huh? Let me re-read this... (pulls phone out, starts to re-read all of this b/s convo) Wow, I have no idea what I meant by that...This is really bad, I can be an idiot but damn this is bad..I thought it'd be just kinda funny?"
E: "So if/when I match with one of your friends, it'll be funny when I send you a screenshot of it?"
A: "Yeah, touche I wouldn't be thrilled to get that text either."
E: "I didn't expect to hear from you again after the gala, you went from being pretty consistent to not & that usually means a guys fading away. I am not trying to date you, you told me you're not looking for anything and I'm not trying to change people. There's two categories - guys with potential and guys you just call for fun."
A: "Well, what are you looking for? We should talk about that...and I am guessing I'm firmly stuck in the for "fun category" now?"
E: "You were in the potentials but yeah, I think you like games a little too much. Don't get me wrong, I do too but not to THIS extent. I am not "looking" for anything. If a relationship happens, it happens - I'm not out to force or rush anything or anyone. Guys who want to be taken seriously, will."
A: "Yeah I mean I just got out of a serious thing in June....I haven't dated much since but this is the longest I've ever been single...I'm definitely a serial relationshipper. I don't want to rush anything either, but if it happens, I wouldn't be opposed. Am I really stuck in the "fun" category now Elle?"
A: "Well, if you wanna leave now before you're stuck here eating food, I get it."
E: "If I'm here, you might as well feed me."
We order food, chat some more, nothing major. Finally it's time to go.
A: "Well, I gotta see if there's a car2go around here..."
E: "Or you could just come over."
A: "What??? You hate me now, what do you mean come over?"
E: "Well, fun for now category definitely includes sex which is pretty legit with you."
A: "Well, I didn't think you'd show up and now I am really in shock. You know how to keep a guy confused and guessing."
E: "So yes or no? I'm not gonna ask again."
He pushes me against a wall, start kissing me and we stumble towards my car.
We get to my place, hookup x3 (as always) and do a lot of chatting. Nothing terribly notable and he leaves around 1am.
I get a text after, "I wasn't following up with Mia, that's what I meant. Night, Elle."
E: "twas fun A."
A: "cest la vie"
A: "The most meaningful wink face you've ever sent. Don't sell out now, kid (;"
OH andddddd he invited me to Mexico this week with him at the restaurant. He has a companion airfare pass with southwest and enough points to stay at any hotel for free. I was like, UMMMM wha? Is that an invitation???? He was like I am serious, I'll look when I get home... Baffling mindfuck this guy is. But we can pick back up on the Mexico saga later.
Point of this post -
I successfully turned the tables on him aka mission freaking accomplished.
Friday night is full of stories, stay tuned!
