Seymore Posted October 10, 2011 Share Posted October 10, 2011 I was in a real slump for quite a while. I really didn't care about meeting a girl, or if I was ever going to be in a relationship again. Then my buddy's girlfriend, J, sets up a get-together at a local bar for all of her friends and co-workers a few months ago. I meet one of J's co-workers, R, and after about 10 minutes of talking with her, I find myself saying: "I want to be in a relationship again." I mean we hit it off - not even flirting, just conversation-wise. I mean she's just my type. So I talk to J off to the side and she asks what I think of R, and I say she's incredible, and J says she thinks she's totally my type and that she's amazed how R and I are hitting it off, but she has a boyfriend whom she's having lots of trouble with, and who is a pretentious snob who pretty much nobody in the group likes. Anyway, the end of the night, we all say our goodbyes, and a week later, out of the blue, R friends me on Facebook. And we joke around, post dumb stuff on each others' walls, just friendly-like. Fast forward a couple of months to last night. J is having a birthday party, and it's the first time I see R since a few months ago. R brings a huge bottle of Stella just for me, and ironically enough, I had brought a 6-pack of Stella for the two of us. But no boyfriend. I ask where he is, and she says he wanted to stay home to play video games. I mean, really? You leech your girl's car, her computer, God knows what else, you barely work, and you can't even go to an event with her? But I didn't say anything. And R can't go half an hour without talking about her boyfriend and how wonderful he is, while J is telling me that at their lunch hours it sounds like the opposite, and that she has nothing but problems with him. R made food for the party, and at the end of the night we're talking for about an hour and before we all leave, I go in the kitchen and clean the dishes she brought her food in as a way of saying thanks for making the food in the first place. We walk downstairs and out to our cars together, say goodnight and that's that. We get along. I KNOW I could be great to her. But prince charming is at home playing video games all day, and it just really gets to me. I'm not going to put the moves on a girl who's already involved, but I can see it, J can see it, why can't R see that she can have someone who actually seems to GIVE A CRAP?!? I just can't see where I'm going wrong. Link to comment
