I wasn’t sure if I should post this, but as long as I’m blegging this week, I suppose readers deserve to be entertained. And what could be more entertaining that relationship drama? Besides, this has me as perplexed as a tweener at their first middle school dance. Almost a year ago I asked a lady out, we went out twice. For those with inquiring minds, we didn’t make out — or anything else — I got the distinct feeling she wasn’t interested in me after the second date. Which was confirmed when she declined a third date. She could have used a traditional brush off, like “I have to wash my hair,” but I kid you not, her words were along the lines of, “you are gross and the thought of being with you makes me sick.” At which point I got the rather giant hint and didn’t ask her out again.
We would see one another every now and then, we’d smile and exchange casual hellos, maybe chat briefly about our workouts or diets, and we were both fine with that. End of story. Now, wouldn’t it be reasonable to assume she would have no objection to me moving on and asking someone else out?
There is, apparently, an objection. Because when she saw me this week for the first time in a couple of months, with Workout Girl, who she does not know and has never laid eyes on, she started acting curt. Then she begin calling and texting me, starting out asking how I’m doing, then asking about my g/f and how we met, then it got more and more mixed with subtle jabs and back-handed compliments, finally culiminating in dressing me down, claiming I never cared about her, as if she had never brushed me off. It’s not that she wants to see me either — I asked her several times during the week in a polite low-key way if she wanted to get a cup of coffee or anything and she said no. But, she kept contacting me and it got weirder and weirder, until as of yesterday she sounds angry, or at least really miffed that I’m seeing someone or that I didn’t ask her out again … I don’t know how else to describe it.
WTF? Help! I have no idea what the hell is going on.
