The Bitter Bus tends to follow me everywhere I go. But it only honks it's horn and flashes it's brights when it comes to men. Or I should say boys, because the males that I tend to go out with or have an interest in sooner rather than later will revert back to junior high levels of interaction. They don't call when they say they will, they tell you nice things and then they're actions don't go along with the words. Or you call, text, email, whatever, and nothing.
Seriously, the other half of our species... well I can't really put into words how irritating I think they are.
I dated one guy last year for 3 weeks, and for 2 of those weeks he was seeing someone else. I had 4 dates in one week with another guy last spring and we were like peanut butter and jelly. We just fit. And then nothing. He stopped calling, would return my calls, just fell off the face of the planet. I went on one date this fall with what appeared to be a great guy, we hit it off. And a few days later we're on the phone, he's saying things like "Lets try this dating thing. You call me, I'll call you, lets see where this can go." And I haven't heard from him since.
And I'm not even going to bring up the reason I moved to NM and the reason I moved back home.
And you know whats worse than all of this?! I am still attracted to them! And that bugs me even more!
I met a boy last week at a bar, he drove me home and was a gentleman and dropped me at my door. Saying that he'd like to see me again. Last Friday I get a text (and don't get me started on the texting. Be a man and pick up the phone!) saying this weekend he'd like us to get together. And nothing. It's been 6 days, I've lost hope that he'll call. I'd call him but everyone I talk too, everything I read says that if the boy wants to see you again, he'll find a way to do so. Not that I should sit on my ass and wait like a lame-o. But from my past experiences, when I call and they don't return it, they are not interested.
Why do they say the things they do and act all sweet and interested just to lift us up and watch us come crashing back down? I don't get it. When I'm not interested, I say so. One because it's the right thing to do, and two because when it's not said to me I'm left with all these questions and anger.
I'm nearly convinced that all the good ones are gay, taken, or boring.
