Good Morning

There was a boy (ok...man) from a dating website long ago. We have IM'ed occasionally over the last year and a half. We exchanged numbers, but we rarely talked. He popped back up into my virtual life sometime last week. He sent me a couple messages asking me to meet up for dinner or something. I finally agreed to go out with him this past Monday. We went to a professional sporting event, and we had what I thought was a great time.

KS was a gentleman, complete with door opening and seating pulling. He had a quick witty sarcastic sense of humor, and I loved it. We held hands....we laughed....we kissed...we kissed again. He called me to make sure I made it home okay after we parted. He texted me a good morning message and thanked me for finally agreeing to go out with him after a year and a half on Tuesday morning. We exchanged a couple of flirty messages throughout the day. I asked him if he still wanted to meet up this weekend (which we had discussed during our first date). No response...

Wednesday afternoon I received this text from him: "How is ur day?" to which I responded, "Not too bad. How is urs?" He then replied: "Good. Wht time are u done?" I told him I had to work late and then asked about the weekend again. Again...no response.

Thursday morning, yet another text from KS: "Good morning.:)" *Sigh* I can't stand games!

Maybe your question about the weekend mysteriously drops off in cyberspace {raised eyebrow}. Gimme a break...

Oh I hate games. Hopefully he drops them soon...or else I wouldn't text him back.

jo said...

oh man... i so don't like the games too. my guess is that he already has plans for the weekend... and very possibly with another girl... oh well...

I wouldn't ask again about the weekend. He has every right to have plans. It has just been one date.

I know how much you hate the games. When and if the right moment comes up then you can address the fact that you would have liked a straight answer.

Have you talked to LD yet?

Curvy- I think that's why many men text instead of call. They don't have to acknowledge questions. They can use the excuse that they never got it!

Chica- I've already stopped texting him back. I didn't respond yesterday. Don't care to just get a "good morning" text everyday!

jo- That very well may be the case. And that's fine.

Angel- He does have every right to go out with other women. That isn't the problem. I'm annoyed at the fact that he just constantly sends "good morning" messages and "What time are you done?" messages without responding to anything I say or ask.

He asked me to go to an amusement park this weekend. I have access to free passes through my job. I was simply asking if I should pick those up. A simple "I can't make it this weekend" or "I have other plans" would have been sufficient.

Yeah. Avoidance is never a good sign. It's frustrating...never mind confusing. If it were me, I think I'd be done. Next!

Good Morning :) How's ur day?
Just kidding! LOL
Ok, he and you both are free to go with and date whomever, but he should at least given you the courtesy, after talking about the second date, of letting you know about the weekend so YOU could plan YOUR weekened accordingly!
Bastards, Bastards...men are all friggin' retarded, game playing bastards!!!

Ugh. If he already asked you and didn't narrow down a day, take a good girlfriend and use the free passes. If he loses out, it's his own fault.

You would probably have a better time with someone you know better anyway.

Seems like he's 1) involved 2) not interested in more than texting right now 3) busy + 1 and 2.

I don't really see how he's playing a game. He's just doing him -- clearly not interested in responding to that question. Now you do you and stop asking/texting. It's not really a game; it's just how dating works.
