While contemplating my next move with Jon B, I’m realizing that aside from him being cute and seemingly good on paper, we really don’t have that much in common or at least nothing else that I can tell because he doesn’t talk about much.
Sure, we both enjoy eating and indulging in cocktails, but other than that I only know that he’s hustling to expand his business, takes a lot of naps and feels slighted that his daughter isn’t too interested in his Skyping calls. That’s it – just the surface and superficial stuff.
So as I’m telling a friend about his latest radio silent act like, she silence me the most perfect suggestion:
“You need to take him off the boyfriend program and put him on the fuck boy program. Treat him like he’s here to pass the time.”
This dude will consume several days in a row if I allowed him to and as much as I’m enjoying his company, everything seems to be on his terms and timeline which isn’t cool and another friend says I need to stop making myself so available.
But isn’t that kind of like playing games? If you are available and have nothing else to do, you should say no every once in a while so the other person thinks you’ve got other things going on?
Here’s what I don’t like: he responds to text messages and phone calls when he’s good and damn ready and if I’m trying to plan something in advance, he doesn’t get back until the last minute with a counteroffer.
I don’t like being ignored because actions like this remind me of one or two hangovers from my past. Seeing as how the average person is staring at their phone countless hours a day, it’s inconceivable that ten seconds can’t be taken to tap out a reply.
I know this for a fact because I just did the same thing to another guy.
He texted me at 10:29am and I saw my phone light up within a few minutes and could have replied with a simple “Hey, good
morning…Already working but we’ll chat later”, but I didn’t want to. He’s nice and but I’m not feeling him at and figured responding too quickly would give him false hopes, so I would just respond later. I didn’t respond until this afternoon.
See how this shit works?
Dealing with another one of those super busy and forgetful guys isn’t an appealing option, and neither is the possibility that he’s curving me so I asked him again if he wanted to become a fuck buddy and he’s saying no.
His actions are telling me otherwise so I’ll give him a week or so, if that.
Until there’s a cure…
