I Got Nothing

I mean it.  Really. Nada. Zip. Zilch.  A big fat zerO.  And yet somehow I thought this weekend might be different.  After all I had received messages or texts from no less than 4 new guys (well one was making a re-appearance) throughout the week.  All but one were somewhat local.  I was looking forward to at least going to dinner with my family after work Saturday but no that got cancelled too.

But wait as I was driving home, I get a text from (let's call him) GB asking if I had plans that night. I quickly texted him back that I needed to get a shower and after that I was free.  He said to give him a few minutes and he would call.  I got to the house and waited a "few" minutes before I hopped in the shower.  Well, I get in the shower with the phone turned all the way up on the counter.  Nothing.  So I wait a "few" more minutes before I got dressed.  45 minutes go by and I send a quick text reminding him of my existence.

Finally 45 minutes after my text and 90 minutes after the original "gimme a few minutes"  I get a response and he's still working.  I get it. I do. I understand you're busy and especially if you're the owner of a successful business how much hard work it takes.  My response..."Look it's after 8...I've worked 8 hours, I'm starving, and I'm off tomorrow..why don't we do something then?"  I get an "OK" back.  Sigh.

Later that night I hear my phone go "whoop" and I grabbed it eagerly thinking it might be GB.  Nope.  It was some guy I had chatted with earlier in the year.  He was eager to meet but I just have a "feeling" and keep putting him off.  I'm sure he's fine and it would be totally hot if we were to hook up..but something makes me hesitant.  Thinking I was texting (lets call him) J, I sent him a response or so I thought.  As it turns out I texted GB!

That led to a little flirting and some sexy chat but that fizzled out when I revealed (as Rob calls it) "shark week" was making it's monthly appearance.   He said he would text Sunday but I knew that wasn't going to happen.  And I was right.   Later that night, I sent him a quick text asking how his day went.  And yeah, I got nothing.


  1. Ugh! I hate when things just won't work out! GB sounds like an ass, though, and I've always believed it's important to pay attention to those "feelings" when you Just don't feel sure of someone. Maybe it's nothing, but the feeling is there for a reason.

  2. As Maclemore would say it sounds like you were "eating at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week Raw. Tell (them) go up. Gone!

  3. Grrrr... I hate hate hate the "I will do so-in-so" and then they DON'T. Don't say it if you're not going to do it! Hope your luck improves!

  4. Yep, sometimes everything comes up empty. I bet this week is different. :-)

  5. Most importantly, trust your instincts on these guys... as you stated in your post....

    Things will get better... ;oD
