[dropcap]A[/dropcap]nd then it was April.
Guy #1 emailed. It was eloquent. It was adorable. He was going back to London. Fuck. We decided to keep in touch anyway because with his job moving him around and my academic adventures on the horizon, who’s to say we wouldn’t one day rendezvous in Paris or Boston.
Guy #2 emailed. Weeks later. Apparently it had been very difficult to find my email in the message that I had sent him. This seemed a rather weak and unnecessary excuse but it was heavily offset by the fact that he seemed to think I was fantastic and definitely wanted to take me out. Unfortunately for him I was still wrapping up exams and schoolwork so, as is often the case, this boy would have to wait. He seemed okay with that. We exchanged phone numbers. But you see, in my tornado of a end-of-semester-brain, I managed to inadvertently give him the wrong number. I gave him the 778 version of my phone number when it’s actually a 604.
Ok text me with a heads up when you are ready to giv’er! Lol.
And then at 7pm, I met him.
Or more, I went to meet him. You see, just as I pulled up and parked, I got a text. Going to be about 15 or 20 minutes late. Followed by CUSoon. Ugh. To be honest I was more disturbed by the teenage texting skills than the lateness. Shit happens. I’ve been late for a date once before, and the fact that he let me know boded well with me. Plus this way I could get all situated, order up a nice diet soda, watch the game on the big screens and get my relax on.
Earlier in the day we had texted a reminder pic of ourselves to the other, since it had been weeks since I’d had a dating profile up on POF (though I didn’t really need one of him, obvs I saved his profile as a favorite to keep my memory fresh).
And then 20 minutes later I felt a hand spread across my back…I turned to look…and there he was…a new “Something”…known henceforth as TheMess.
