Sooner Born and Sooner Bred

I thought there was hope for us. He seemed to have it all together! He was normal. He had a good job. He loved God. He enjoyed college basketball. For crying out loud, the man had health insurance!

But as we all know, I'm not lucky in this department. The dating department. What seemed normal, really wasn't. Actually, I can't say that about him. I suppose he's still normal.

Before I left the Awkward BBQ with Pistol Pete, him and I discussed hanging out on the 4th of July. He said he'd come to my town to hang out. By the time the 4th of July rolled around (a week after the Awkward BBQ), I hadn't heard from Pistol Pete. Loser. I assumed I didn't need to text message him my 4th of July plans, since I hadn't heard from him. But, The Cousin and Sister #1 both said I needed to text him my 4th of July plans, because I told him I would. Despite the fact that he hadn't called/text/emailed/facebook me in over week I still had to send this text message. *Insert Eye Roll Here* The Cousin said I couldn't be mean. *Insert Eye Roll Here* SO this is how it went down on the 3rd of July...

Me: Do you have plans on the 4th?
PP: I'm going to hang out with my family. I'm working on my bathroom and kitchen so maybe we can get together in a week or two?

End of conversation via text message

I did not respond to his text message. How do you respond to that? Sure, call me when you have time. I'll be waiting right here by the phone. Waiting. Waiting for you to call me.

I don't think so! Instead, I deleted his number from my phone. Yup, that's how I roll.

Holla! I agree with your stance.

Scotty said...

Helloooo... you didnt need to text him your 4th plans. I mean, you TOLD him them, and you invited him.

The a week or two response from him is crap as well. Good for you.

Ally said...

I'm with Scotty....you didn't owe him an additional text & deleting his phone number is a good plan.

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

Ha ha, I think women give the worse dating advice! I agree, you didn't need to text him your 4th plans.

Plenty more fish in the sea... maybe... if you find that ocean let me know.

sorry this one didn't work out. I'm sure that God has a special plan and guy for you out there somewhere. HUGS

I think I didn't have a good feeling about this guy from the beginning. You were awfully sweet to give him so many chances.

Katie said...

I wish we were all as strong as you. Time to finally delete the ex-boy's number... *cough* 4.5 months later *cough* sigh. You've given me the strength!

OK Chick said...

Thanks for everyone's support. HA!

Kate, do it! Delete the #, you will feel better.

Well played. If he chooses to sit on the floor of his bathroom rather than hanging out with OK Chick he needs to be dropped. That was the equivalent of "Sorry I can't go out I need to wash my hair." You're better off without him.

Good job girl. Good. Job.

So long, Twelve-gauge Tim.

(I'm kinda glad he's gone. I was running out of nicknames.)

He's definitely not the brightest crayon in the box. Glad you're moving on. You deserve a guy who can't wait to talk to you every day!

TC said...

Sister #1 and the cousin gave HORRIBLE advice.

Please don't listen to them from now on. Consult us: we'll be honest - brutal from time to time even. And clearly, we all give or would have given better advice :)

Awww. I'm sorry it didn't work. He doesn't sound worth the trouble or a text back anyway. Pistol Pete just shot himself in the foot on this one I tell ya.

YAY! YAY for YOU, I mean...not yay that he turned out to be that way...Seriously this guy suggested getting together in a week or two? I don't know if he is just obnoxious or clueless?! I would much rather have a guy tell me point blank that he isn't interested than to be passive and try to avoid telling me... I have NO respect for that. It sucks...but you are definitely making a good decision. Deleting him from your phone..exactly what I would have done!
