It went something like this: “Hey, it’s Sabrina” “Oh, um hi.What’s up” “Well I was just calling to see if we were still on for tonight” “Oh, um, hmm, right, um, yeah, I forgot about that.
The reason I felt compelled to share this story is that it taught me a lot.
For one, it taught me not to take things so personally and not to think the worst of myself because some guy didn’t call.
Towards the end of the date, he looked like a fool in love.
He couldn’t pry his eyes away from me and said he had never felt this way about a girl after a second date. There was no doubt in my mind that I’d be hearing from him again and I was right.
I looked at him, stunned, “Sorry, I forgot how pretty you are.” The only thought resounding in my head was WTF?!?
I was dying to ask why he didn’t call me but I restrained myself.I stepped off the elevator to see an absolutely miserable looking guy slumped on a chair.I reluctantly approached him, “Um hey, are you ready to go? When we stepped outside, he grabbed me, and kissed me.We exchanged numbers, kissed, said our goodbyes, and I left feeling quite pleased with myself, knowing that I had played my cards right. I wasn’t expecting a call on Monday or Tuesday because of the ‘rules’ and all that, but by Wednesday night I started to feel a little panicked. By 7 pm I had two choices: resign myself to the fact that he isn’t into me, or do something I had never, ever done before- call him. As the phone rang I practiced the message I would leave on his voicemail in my head but was interrupted when, to my astonishment, a very perplexed-sounding J answered the phone.Deducing that I had nothing to lose, I decided to go with the latter because he was cute and funny and he gave me butterflies in my stomach which no one had done since my ex and I had been incapable of feeling anything for anyone after my ex and now I finally had feelings again and feelings don’t come around every day so I wasn’t gonna let this go so easily. From there, a horrifically awkward conversation ensued.I kept it cool and acted like him not calling didn’t bother me in the least.
