Men can be so incredibly transparent. Well....I suppose we all can be, huh?
So, let me introduce "Clark". Got a lovely e-mail from him telling me about himself...more than is disclosed in his profile. Seems he has experienced a lot of loss in his life: parents at a young age, the uncle that raised him died when he was 27, and his wife died 6 years ago. He's lived in the US for awhile & transferred local to me from TX. I e-mailed back that I was sorry he's experienced all that loss, and inquired about him living here in the US from Ireland, etc., etc. Ya know, pleasant conversation to get to know him. His reply back, "Please let me know if you have yahoo messenger." That was it! I replied back that I only have it on my home computer, which I rarely use. His response: "What is your and the best time we can chat? Please do not forget to send me some pictures of yourself." Ok, so after the ensuing laughter & rolling of the eyes, I realize this is a P-L-A-Y-E-R! Do not forget to send me some pictures? Hello? Look at my profile! That's all you'll ever be seeing of this girl! Idiot!
Before that we have "Keebler". We've been talking for over a month now. We were supposed to meet a few weeks ago, but he woke up sick that day. Of course, I didn't quite appreciate that he waited 'til 3 hours before we were suppose to meet to call it off, but gave him the benefit of the doubt. Then about 1.5 wks ago, as we're talking, it became apparent that he had issues with his mother. Then later in the conversation it was obvious he has issues with one of his sisters too. And let's not forget to mention issues with his ex-wife. In short, it was obvious ....he's just got issues! Then he called to see if we were still going to meet this past weekend. I told him I had to beg off this time (remember, he begged off the previous time!) because I needed to go pick up something Friday night with my neighbor's truck, so therefore everything I had intended to do Friday night now was put off 'til Sat., I had plans Sat. evening, and then Sunday was time I spent with my dad. I also hadn't called him prior to this b/c life was just crazy in my house with the boys & trying to get everything worked out for the weekend. Not that I owed him explanations at all. My business is my own. But I was trying to be up front & honest. Anyway, haven't heard anything from him. I think that's best.
Truthfully, I like to let them "end" it in their own mind. That way they won't come back & bug me! Ever see the movie "10 Ways to Lose a Guy"? Doesn't take much! LOL!
The entertainment continues....
