I know I’M crazy. YOU know I’m crazy. You know YOU’RE crazy. But some people are really crazy! I met this really fun couple at a bar, visiting from North Carolina. They were smitten with me and I was smitten with them…OK, I know what you’re thinking…but that’s not it.
So they wanted to play cupid and set me up with a good friend of theirs who lives locally. Sure! I trust their judgement. I’m totally game for meeting new people. I exchange numbers with the couple. They act as mediator and give my number to their friend (I’ll call him Toby).
Toby calls the next day. We chat and make a point to get together for coffee or tea. Here are his subsequent text messages. I saved them and now I need to get rid of them because my phone is overcapacitated. Hence, the post.
1. Let’s meet tomorrow sweety…This way we’ll be a little more relaxed. I am taking care of kelly and steven. I will call u tomorrow before noon. Is that ok?
2. Cheers lovely…we’ll make tomorrow a relaxing experience. Enjoy your evening.
I don’t shy away from affection. Hugs and kisses are plentiful for guys I am dating, but I have to draw the line as well as question the judgment of someone who calls me ‘sweety’ and ‘lovely’ when he’s never even met me!
What do you think? Am I being too harsh? My girlfriends saw the texts and immediately poo-poohed him as did I. “Ewwww, disgusting!”
I never contacted him again.
