And it’s over with The Ginger. I knew it would be. I finally heard from him today, only after writing the incredibly passive aggressive email reading “How’s your weekend going?” and nothing else.
He explained that he is “too busy” and it doesn’t seem like things will be “calming down any time soon” and he’s “so sorry” because he “really, really likes” me and that he’s a me “fan.”
Frankly, I think this is bullshit. There is no such thing as “too busy.” If you like someone enough, you will always find a way to make time for them. Always. I also know this is bullshit because it is an excuse I frequently (and unfortunately) use myself.
And this hurts, because it means that he really liked me enough at the beginning, and then something changed at some point to make him no longer interested. And it’s right around the point where he’s really getting to know me, where I’m starting to be really comfortable around him, be myself. And evidently, something there wasn’t likeable enough.
So there it is. I can’t say I was surprised, since I saw this coming, but I am extremely disappointed. And just… sad. I really had my hopes up about this one, despite all my trying to control that.
BUT… on the plus side, this does mean there are LOTS more hilarious dating stories coming your way…
