Boys online are always too good to be true. That’s the one thing most of us can agree on!
So I start talking to an American guy online. The chat was smart, witty and normal. Until he started to come across a little ‘meh’. He took to messaging to say he couldn’t believe I was talking to him and that girls don’t usually talk to him. He said they usually just stop replying. I started to understand why. He suggested meeting up one Sunday night. I said Sunday’s weren’t good for me but gave him nights I could do, and said weekends were free. Apart from the next weekend as I was away. He took that as a ‘I’m never going to see you and am just humouring you’ response. I said it wasn’t, he ranted about how he needed to find his confidence with women and that no one that looked like me would go out with him. I said not to be so daft or hard on himself. I said when I was free. He did nothing about arranging anything. I’d reply to a text, he’d send a voice note. I got bored of this going nowhere and didn’t reply. So I get more voice notes along the lines of ‘just wanted to say hello’ err… So CALL ME?
My friend thinks I’m being picky.
You think I’m being picky.
I spent 7 years with a guy that wouldn’t get off his fat arse and make a decision about anything. I booked our holidays, I paid our bills, I chose the paint when we decorated and I chose what we ate!!! I do not need a guy that can’t even arrange a coffee date. I certainly don’t need a needy ‘no one loves me’ attitude that needs constant reassurance. I have enough of my own hang ups.
Meanwhile the date that thinks a salad in a furniture shop is acceptable sent me a voice note. WHAT IS IT WITH THESE? It was a parody he’d written about Tinder and proceeded to perform all 4 minutes of it. Having not had a reply from me in over a week. I immediately sent it to my girlfriends for a laugh (I’d post it here if I could). He then sent a ‘how’s your week’ message. I was tempted to reply asking if he was on crack.
What is it with these boys? Is it because they’re American and Canadian? Is that what they do out west? Sod that, it’s weird. So current flirtation is a Brit living in Dubai who visits Kuwait a lot with work. So far no voice notes and no cock shots. But only time will tell!
