My New Man!!

I have a new man in my life!! He is furry, has four legs, weighs about 16 pounds, and I picked him up at the animal shelter Thursday! Yep, I rescued a dog! He is soooo cute and sweet and laid back...the perfect addition to the household.

As for real men...nothing much going on in that category. Teacher Man sent a text last night (Saturday) around 6:30, asking me what I was up to. Then he asked if I wanted to see a movie. I responded with, "When?" He said, "Tonight" I told him he was a little late asking and that he shouldn't wait until the last minute. I also let him know that he can't ignore me for a month and expect me to be available when he is bored. He told me he understood. Fast forward about 30 minutes and I got another text from him asking what I was doing tomorrow (well today). When I told him I had no plans, he asked if I wanted to go to lunch and a movie. I told him to call me around 11:00. Of course, he texted me at 11:30. I didn't know because I was on a marathon phone call until about 1:00. I told him we would just try again next weekend since the weather is disgusting anyway. What the hell ever happened to just picking up the phone and actually CALLING someone??? So tired of all communication via text!

Awww, that's great, I love dogs! They're pros at giving unconditional love :-).

Can't blame ya for not jumping at TM's whims.

Text messaging has totally complicated dating. I've read about eighteen articles on Yahoo News about how it needs to end.
Congratulations on your dog. I've wanted one the longest time... not only because dog-owners meet more potential dates (even though it's a large incentive)

ugh..i agree with you on the texting thing. quite frankly, if you are trying to have more than a bootycall, you should pick up the phone. in my humble opinion.

aww dogs are the cutest!

i'm not opposed to texting (though calls are always lovely) but it was good that you stood your ground and didn't just jump to meet up with Teacher Man after he ignored you for a month.

The new guy is kind of camera shy, but I will try! He always turns his head or looks at me all crazy every time I try to take a pic!

As for the texting, I don't mind it at times. When trying to set up a date though, it can be annoying.

I'm with jo, good for you for recognizing you deserve better than a last minute text message.

I totally want to rescue a dog, I just don't have the time to care for it...

And I agree with you, I'm tired of all the texting and email communication. I long for phone calls and in-person communication.
