I know this because his friend I met when I was in town texted me about something and mentioned it. Apparently he is "thinking about how to respond."
The night before I told him about the letter aka my last night in DC -- we facetimed him and he mentioned this movie on netflix called "Always be my maybe" and how we should watch it.
So we started it at Mia's and then I fell asleep and totally forgot we even started it.
So the other night I am roaming around netflix and I see it. I watch it and am obsessed with how great the movie is.
That night in DC he texted after we hung up on facetime, "you really need to watch this movie" or something like that.
SO the movie is all about friends who hook up, nothing happens, then they reunite years later and she is uber successful and he's underachieving...long story short - he goes to tell her how he feels and she has just met someone new. Then that fails and they end up together briefly until his under achieving finally ruins it for them and she moves across the country.
Fast forward - they wind up together because he realizes that he wants to be with her no matter the situation and bam.
Go watch the movie - it's adorable. Anyhow - I feel like we have some similarities in our story. I'm not as successful as the girl in the movie and he isn't as lame as the guy in the movie but there are a lot of parallels.
So I still am hopeful that this could work out and be something really great. There is nobody I am more comfortable doing life with than Arash and I've always been really attracted to him physically (minus when he fails to load the dishwasher well) ;)
Time will tell.
Basebally. Still chatting everyday, all day. Facetime, calls, texts. It's really nice and I am definitely catching feelings. He gets back from work travel on Sunday when I am back from Seattle so hopefully, we can hangout and see if this thing can get past penpallife and into real life.
New toad alerts:
There is the umpire who I matched with months ago and decided not to meet because he's on the road for baseball all the time and he WILL NOT STOP snaptexting me. He's begged me to come to Portland to see him and today told me, "he wants to wife me up."
"Do you tell all the tinder girls you haven't met that or am I special??"
"You aren't like any other girl."
"You are gorgeous, driven, ambitious, great body, perfect smile, and you own a house."
"How does owning a house matter?"
"Most girls can't."
"That isn't true."
"Well, maybe they can but they don't."
"Guess it depends on what kind of girls you're going after."
"I am going after you."
geeeeeeesh. IDK why I still talk to this kid, I guess lack of other options and he's hella tall? Maybe my ego just enjoys the attention? Who knows. Moral of this story...it isn't gonna happen.
Anyone remember my first bf ever, lives on the east coast and would randomly pop back up? We had coffee a few years back when he came to DC? He's not really notable beyond this story...
So he pops up a few months ago and starts calling, texting, facetiming. Him and his ex broke up again because she moved back overseas and he "always wondered about us as adults" -- so I fall into it because I am going through a low self esteem moment and I have no desire to online date...
Fast forward we are supposed to meet up in Mexico. Well, his ex came back to town that weekend he was supposed to be with me, he was honest and told me but it left me solo in Mexico at what was basically a couples honeymoon resort.
SOOOOOOO I am out with my gf and I am telling her about it and she's like, fuck this. BLOCK HIS ASS. He should not have the satisfaction of knowing you can see his shit.
Drunk Elle follows orders and blocked he goes.
So the other day I get a text, "did you block me on IG?"
Well genius, if you have to ask the answer is likely YES YOU FUCKING MORON.
So I let that sit for awhile then reply back...
"Yes. It hurt to see all of your couple photos after you'd been talking to me for the past few months everyday. And I realized I don't need to put myself through that hurt."
NO REPLY. What a shocker. You're an asshole that I have history with and historically, you've always let me down so why would I expect this to be any different?
The only upside...I have his netflix login so I no longer have to use X-Factors.
Curious about XF? Stay tuned for that shit show on a day when I have ALOT more time...
