laura-j Posted November 13, 2011 Share Posted November 13, 2011 My life seems to be a wonderful series of 'men' who show up, show interest and disappear the minute I like em back. (And no I don't sleep with guys too soon, or at all). 5 for 5 this year. Cracks me up. The minute I decided I like them and I don't even tell them that I like them, they just poof disappear. One guy I was dating for a few months rather seriously, I texted a friend and said I was going to go with it, I had been unsure. I didn't hear from the dude again for 2 effing months! Kissed me goodbye said he'd call tomorrow... then two months??? I play it cool, I don't contact, I don't pester, I don't do anything. Cause that's what women are supposed to do. Nothing wait for the men to do whatever they like and not say anything at all, right? Smile coyly if they talk to us? But don't let them know you like them... good god no, if you were to dare to tell someone you like them the world would end. And then when they show up again we aren't even allowed to tell them that they are idiots. Be polite, of course, be a lady. I'll act like a lady when the boys start acting like freaking men! I'm a grown woman, I own my own house, I've traveled the world alone to 17 countries, I make good money, I'm fun, cute and curvy and even though I'm 41 I still get carded all the time. For an old broad I'd be considered a "catch" in some cultures... sadly not my own. I would love to be treated with a tiny bit of respect by someone with a penis, just once. Man up. Say "Hey I'm not interested". Done. Easy. SO appreciated. I'm sorry but the whole new rules of the game are BS. What ever happened to, "Hey I like you let's go get a drink?"... not no more, it's all games and hiding behind computers and cell phones and fake names and ugh.... Time to stop dating all together I think, my little heart can't take the constant battery. And frankly if a nice one showed up I wouldn't believe him for a second at this point. Not for a second. Jeez I'm over this. Sorry for the rant, but good lord this has been an annoying year. Link to comment
