I’ll file this under “things that piss me off”.
So there’s this guy at my gym– nice, gay, etc– with whom I’ve struck up a “gym conversational” relationship. We chat when we see each other there, and it’s more than just the “hey, nice seeing ya” chatting.
I’ve also run into him out at the bar before (at a leather night no less!) and while he’s tall and handsome, I also know that we’re both catchers so……
But I still thought he was a nice enough guy, so while chatting at the gym the other day, I suggested that we should hang out sometime. Like maybe hit up the bar again and have a beer– JUST a beer. He said sure, and he took my number right then so he could text me his. (I don’t ever have my phone in the locker room.)
Well, it’s nearly two weeks later and have I received any sort of text?
Although he was again friendly enough at the gym this past Wednesday.
Maybe I put him on the spot by asking to hang out and he felt obligated to do the Minnesotan passive-aggressive thing by nicely taking my number while never having the intent to text? Or maybe he couldn’t come up with a good enough excuse like, “Oh, I rarely go out, and if I do it’s super spontaneous.”
Or even the brutally honest approach of “Yeah, I have enough friends already so… No thanks.”
Meh. It is what it is and he’s definitely missing out because I’m pretty awesome. However, I get so tired of continually putting myself out there only to be dismissed.
