What Not to say/do on a date Part 13

It's backkkkkkk! That's right What Not to Say/Do on a Date is back! 

It's been awhile but it's making an appearance again! Good for you, but bad for me! Why? because I'm the one who's been on all of these horrible/bad/awkward dates. Every single one of them. If you've missed any of the previous editions, you can find them here

Today's latest edition comes thanks to a person who's given me material for a previous edition. If you want to read the whole story you can but the end point being was that he told me he, "didn't even like me as a human being." Oh yeah, he said it! 

So how does this guy come back into my life? Well let me explain it to you. Last week I'm going about my work day and I feel my phone vibrate. It's a text and I don't recognize the number. I'll admit it, I screen my calls and texts like it's my full time job. So I get this text and the number looks kinda familiar. It's got my local area code and the first few digits look like it's a friend of mines that I just haven't saved in my phone. 

I responded with the casual, "Oh hey!" with a quick second message saying the person's name who I thought it was with a question mark behind it. Then it comes, "Um sure if that's what you want my name to be." Immediately I knew that it wasn't my friend so I of course lied and said, "Oh I'm sorry my iphone has went crazy recently and my contacts got messed up. Who is this?"

Judge all you want but you know you'd do the same! Because if it was a real friend who would have already have got ahold of them to make sure you had their number but some of those fair weather, don't see all the time people... well I just don't save their digits. Or hello, it could be a crazy stalker who's been sitting outside of my house and prays to a self made shrine to me at night. 

And then the other shoe dropped and he told me his name. OH MY GOD! Are you kidding me? That was my first initial shock. Then the second shock thought came of he still has my number?!? We haven't spoke for let's count them.... 8 months. I could have almost had a kid in that time. That's a long time! So then we started texting back and forth because frankly my interest were peaked. Why get a hold of me after the horrible things he last said to me? This is basically how the texts went....

Me: (right after he revealed who he was to me) Ohhhh....hey. What's up? (because I was raised to be nice and at least be courtesy) 
Him: Nothing much, I saw you in December when I dropped my cousin off at (my workplace) but I decided not approach you. 

For the record I saw him that day as well but didn't even budge or think about approaching him to speak to him. I was working and well frankly... just... no. 

Then he made a peace offering.

Him: I feel bad how I set you up last time with that ghostbusters song. He quoted a bobby brown song to me tell me that I was too cold to handle etc.. it was really rude. 

He then goes on to tell me that he's sorry for being a major ahole. I accept his apology and I think we move on to possibly being friends and that's when he says it...

"You are very outspoken which isn't always a good thing."

Really?!? This is coming from the guy who told me that he didn't even like me as a human being. Pot... meet kettle. So note to everyone, when trying to apologize and make contact with someone after months of nothingness.... Don't keep making jabs.

Reading these posts brings me back to my days of dating. This guy sounds like a real A..it is best you keep on keeping on.

Meagan said...

Wow! I wouldn't talk to that guy again! Or maybe let him know you don't even like him as a human being.

Steph said...

lil desiqua said...

Wow what an a-hole!! You should definitely block his number! But at least you got a funny story out of it!

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields said...

Oh, my gosh. Some guys are shameless. Where is his manners?! My goodness...

Jenna said...

ugh what a jerk. I would be deleting his number again.. haha

samnhal said...

If you're trying to make amends with someone why would you go on to insult them? What is wrong with him?

Sarah said...

Woooooooow. That guy is just ridiculous!!! Someone seriously needs to slap him. In what world does apologizing include a "hey, this thing you do...not always a good thing"? Idiot.

Kerr said...

seriously? this kid needs a swift kick to the face. I think I might have said that last time. clearly, it needs to happen!

Deidre said...

whoa, and my guess is that was him "turning on the charm" that is just horrible.

Ms. Emily Ann said...

Oh my gosh!!! What a jerk!!!

garden state prep said...

It's definitely good and bad to see this series back. He sounds like a jerk! Also I screen my calls all the time - especially if I don't recognize the number.

Chloé said...

Cole said...

Oh my!! What is this guy's problem? Have he have tourette's or something?!?!

Abbie said...

What an IDIOT! I really can't believe the jackass had the guts to contact you after what he said!

Just Call Me Lynn said...

That makes NO sense? Why did he even bother to text you in the first place? CLEARLY he is still hung up on something which shows some serious lack of maturity! Idiot.
