When I first started my blog in 2009, I blogged about Tall Guy. Tall Guy was hot, sweet, had a great job, but was just uncommunicative. He only wanted to talk via BBM. Read here for a refresher course. (The text exchange will crack you up.) Two weeks ago (yes, I swear this month was full of ghosts of boyfriends past!) Tall Guy texted me out of the blue… reminder, I have not heard from him since 2009. 2-0-0-9!!! (Note: Since then I have been matched up with him on OkCupid, eHarmony, AND Match.com. How do you like them apples?)
Tall Guy: Hey, Em. Remember me?
Me: Yes! Tall Guy! How are you? What’s up?
Tall Guy: I just drove by where we went on our first date and was thinking I should reach out. How have you been?
Me: I’ve been good, thanks! Yes, we should definitely get together. I would love to see you. What’s your schedule like?
(Yes, this is still ALL VIA TEXT!)
Tall Guy: How’s Friday?
Me: Friday would great! Talk then. (It’s currently Saturday)
MONDAY – Me: Hey, Tall Guy! Happy Monday! Hope you have a great week. Look forward to seeing you on Friday.
Tall Guy… radio silence.
THURSDAY – Me: We still on for tomorrow?
Tall Guy (5 hours later): I might have a work thing I have to go to, but I should know in the morning. Will text you first thing. Look forward to seeing you!
Me: Sounds good!
FRIDAY – 11:00am – ME: Hey Tall Guy, are we still for tonight? Looking forward to it!
2:45pm – ME: I hate to stalk, but any news on tonight?
Tall Guy: Shit, I’m so sorry… I totally forgot to call and see if I had to go. Gimme a min…
Tall Guy – 10 mins later… – I have to go to this thing tonight. I’m sorry! What’s your weekend look like?
Me: Bummer. No worries, Um… tomorrow night might work. I’ll move some things around.
Tall Guy: Great! I’m going to watch UFC at 7pm, but after that is good.
Me: After that? What time?
Tall Guy: 10pm. Drinks and snacks? Text me a pic!
Me: Wait… 10pm? Um, no. And a pic? Did you forget what I looked like?
Tall Guy: Haha!
Me: Ok, look… I’d love to see you and catch up, but lets do it sometime during real date hours. Just shoot me a text
Tall Guy: Sounds good.
AND… nothing. I have heard NOTHING from him since. Blow me off once, shame on me. Blow me off twice, Fuck You. Ask me for a pic? I might kill you the next time I see you.
