OK, here's the scoop:
He was supposed to pick me up at 9, but called at 8:50 & said he was running late, so he asked if I could go to his place. Fine, not a problem. So, I get there & talk to him and his roommate for 5 minutes. Then we head off to the movie. After the movie, we got in the car & I asked him if he'd like to do something like hang out my place or catch a couple drinks. He said no because he had to get up early to do some yard work with a couple of buddies. That was a red flag to me because he hadn't said a thing about that earlier. Fine..so I took him home. The minute I parked the car, he was out the door & said thanks for the movie and call him when I get home and then C-ya...door shuts immediately after.
It was very cold from him & it really hurt my feelings. It felt like I had the freaking plague or something! It just wasn't normal at all & I got all the signs last night that he doesn't like me. BUT...he makes comments like "ya know, next week when we both have a day off we could go check out this new place down on 70th street?". :censor::censor::censor:? Does he want to hang with me or not?
I'm not very good at this whole dating thing. I've been in long relationships & have dated very little before/after those. So, I know I'm rusty but I'm not a moron about it all either. I gave him all the signs of me liking him. When we talk, I smile & look him in the eyes. I'm always asking him about himself & etc...plus I ask him if he'd like to doing something with me. Occasionally, I would touch his arm when I talk or joke around. I'm just a touchy kind of gal I guess. Isn't that a sign to him? Maybe he's just dumb & clueless about women..and me in general. Maybe I come across as needy to him? I dunno...
Looks like I'll be sending him a long email today explaining how I feel & asking where I stand. Honesty is very important to both of us, so I'm hoping that he'll be honest with me. Oh...I sent him a joke last night before I went to bed at 1:30 & he REPLIED to it at 1:45! So much for getting to bed early, huh?
I'm really sorry for the rant. I'm just mad as hell at him right now. I went through the hurt stage last night & now I'm just mad. Thanks for listening & thanks for all the compliments...that really made me feel good.
