You can't even make this shit up. I thought by not saying anything until there was a date for a date set, that I wouldn't jinx things. But I realized its not a matter of jinxing things Its just how my life goes.
In case you haven't guessed there was no camping trip/date. He called me late the night before he was suppose to arrive. I was excited, he didn't seem to be, then the story came out....
He had been talking to someone where he lives and decided to make things work with her. So he wasn't coming here, and we weren't going on a date. It was high school all over again. Only I handled it differently. In school I got mad. This time I felt nothing. Literally an emotional void. He kept apologizing and saying how bad he felt but that it just happened. Lots of blah blah blah.
My only thought was well of course this is what is going to happen. So I said ok, thanks for letting me know. He asked if we could still talk as friends. I said no I don't think so, and he offered to take me out to dinner to "make it up to me" I definitely said that wouldn't work.
I was ready to be done before he came out of the blue, tracking me down, texting me. I think I will just slide back into my fox hole and ignore all romantic encounters. It less stressful there.
