Probably the first time I got on this specific dating website, I met this guy (not in person). I don't really recall what happened. I do recall he has a son and that posed a conflict with us trying to get together because of our work schedules too. Over the course of the time that I have set up my online account and deleted and repeat, I haven't heard from him. Well, about two weeks ago he emailed me. He said he still wanted to try to meet up. I said, I would be open to that. We got back to our conflict though. I work 8 to 5, and he works part second and third shift so he leaves shortly after I get off of work. He also has his son a lot on the weekends. So, we definitely have a scheduling issue. I even mentioned doing lunch one day and he never addressed the issue. I heard from him a week ago. We texted nonsense back and forth but nothing was mentioned about getting together.
G: Hey what are you doing today?
M: I'm working :(
G: Oh...well never seems like we will meet. Every time I ask you don't respond. So take care. I tried. If you ever change your mind let me know.
M: I never respond? I haven't gotten any msgs from you until today. And I work everyday from 8 to 5 and you leave at 6, right? Last time we texted I mentioned doing lunch because I work 8 to 5 or doing something on a weekend when you don't have your son. So, needless to say I'm confused by your text msg.
G: And I've text 3 or 4 times since then.
M: You have???? I promise you I have not gotten them. I know that's so clique to say, " I didn't get your msgs" but I promise you I haven't.
G: Yeah it's cool.
M: It doesn't make sense that I'd ignore you and now respond. So I guess you choose to believe me or not. I've always been up to meeting you. I just know our schedules are crazy.
G: Your messages are backwards.
M: How so?
G: The end of your messages u get first. (assuming he meant "I" instead of "u")
M: ?? I think my phone is sabotaging me. Ha. I don't know why they would be backwards.
G: It's fine.
M: Well you're clearly already irritated with me. So it doesn't matter what I say. All I know is I haven't gotten any texts from you.
Did this guy get off work this morning ready to start a fucking fight with me or someone who'd partake? What the fuck was the point of texting me in the first place? A) According to him, I hadn't responded to his last 3 or 4 text messages; B) If he wasn't going to move past it if I did respond, then why waste your time and mine?
I don't know what guys want. Honestly, I can't even put that on just "guys." People don't know what they want. Maybe he was looking for me to beg to forgive me that I hadn't responded to his messages and to please find time to see me. Why the fuck would I do that? And, why don't you pout some more? I mean the "Yeah it's cool" and "It's fine" messages are so fucking lame and immature. He's lucky I had some tact and didn't go off. Good Lord.
