Hello Soap Box, let me step on you for a minute. There is not anything that annoys me more in this whole world than a guy that asks out over text message. I mean, if you don't have the balls to pick up the phone and dial my number, you don't have enough balls to date me. I can be a tough cookie. And well, if you have to hide behind the screen of your phone and first send flirty/somewhat inappropriate text messages to gauge my interest in you before you do something about it - then you should just put down the phone and back away slowly.
This is a direct transcript of a text conversation I had last night. I have put my thoughts in red for your reading enjoyment. Also, I have given this guy the game of George. Just because I don't know any George's. And for the record, I actually think this guy is cute. He has potential.
George: What are you doing? Really? at 10:30 at night? I'm not answering this text
5 minutes later:
George: That was a joke. What's going on? You ready for the Y game tomorrow?
Me: If you mean am I ready to watch the Y lose and put and end to this Jimmer mania crap? Then yes...very ready!
George: Wow. My bad.
Me: Oh come on, don't cry about it
George: (he tried to apparently message me on Facebook) Do you know how to use your computer? I invite you over all the time but you never come. Not sure how I should feel about that. For the record, I have only received mass text messages from him and maybe 1 phone call but they have all been past 9:00 pm. I get annoyed at the latest of his invites so I don't respond.
Me: I am not sure how I feel about getting fake invites from you at 10:30 at night
George: I'll make it worth your while. Oh really? We're getting to this level of insinuating now? I'm not going to bite. This conversation is going nowhere but downhill fast if I respond with an equally as flirty text.
Me: That's funny because I don't actually remember getting an invite
George: That is funny. I thought i invited you over thirty minutes ago.
Me: OH! Was your invite "what are you doing"..then following by "that was a joke?" I can't believe i didn't see that as an invite!
George: Yea, i guess that wasn't very smooth. I'll have to work on it.
George: We should really get out and do something sometime. and i'm not joking or giving you a hard time this time.
Me: Well, you do have my number and can call me if you want go out :) Yes I did just tell him to pick up the damn phone if he wants to ask me out.
George: Sounds good. Have a good night
I'm sorry, but I think I deserve someone to be a gentleman and call me on the phone and ask me out on a proper date. Is that asking too much??! I think not.
And before my mom or grandma or anyone that has been married more than 5 years decides to comment on this post about how I was too mean to him, let me save you the trouble and ask for you not to comment.
Because LITERALLY AS I WAS TYPING THIS POST, this is what just happened:
George: Hey. You busy?
Me: Nope. Just checking emails I was NOT about to tell him I was blogging about him.
George: Good. Just checking.
Man.. I give up.
