Update to my previous post: The Waiting Game
I recieved a reply from Mr X at 6:02 (wow he was up even earlier than usual). His reply was sooooo him. Straight from the mouth of a rational thinker, not clouded by emotion whatsoever, not even a hint of disappointment or any other negative emotion. This is why I like him.
After spending time crafting my message and receiving that, I did feel like my eloquence was wasted on him though.
I did my usual and reread his reply and after a few reads, I wondered if he understood that I meant I was about to start dating… like now, and that I wanted to end things when I dating someone seriously, not during the”getting to know someone” dating stage. So after he texted me again, I made sure to slip in a little clarification.
Mr X then said- Good lol yeah I was thinking you needed to start the other day lol
Obviously I wanted to know what he meant. What happened the other day that led to him thinking that? When I asked him he referred to the screenshots of a conversation I had with some asshole, that I uploaded on Instagram. I had uploaded them as a way of showing the kind of guys who seem to be attracted to me- it was a humorous post which my followers seemed to enjoy.
I basically called this guy out on his bullshit and told him to lose my number and he asked me to go for drinks, which I think was his way of asking me for one last chance m. I agreed but told him if any BS comes out of his mouth I’m leaving.
I didn’t understand how seeing that conversation made him think I needed to start dating 🤔 He tried to explain himself, but I felt like he was reaching/ grabbing at straws, so I changed the subject and starting talking about the little kitten I came home to today.
A little summary
Mr X knows I’m going to start dating, he’s cool with us continuing what we’re doing until I’m ready to date someone seriously (seriously in my mind means exclusivity) and I’ll still be seeing him on Thursday. I must say I’m pretty happy with how things turned out. I guess it pays to be honest about what you want 😊
