It’s late and as I’m ready to call it a night, he sends me a text asking if we are now dating exclusively.
I don’t respond and in the morning will use the excuse that I’d fallen asleep.
We’ve had two outings together and the first didn’t leave a very favorable impression. Hell, I haven’t even had a chance to share what went wrong with that first impression and here we are at the junction of exclusivity.
This IS what I’ve been waiting for, right? To meet a man who realizes pretty damn fast that I’m the rarest cut of a precious diamond.
Yes, this is a request to go put profiles to sleep and focus on getting to know each other, not an actual relationship. But is it too soon?
So far he IS talking a good talk, even though my nose is turned in the air at a few things that are either concerning or deal breakers.
He’s not even programmed into my phone by name but only as “Maybe” with a smiley face. Yet again, we’re broaching the subject of being exclusive. Already.
What the hell is wrong with me?
Until there’s a cure…
