So this week's Rejected eHarmony match of the week is.......
That's right. I have been rejected! Can you believe it? Neither can I!!
I got matched with 'David' on Wednesday morning. By the time I got to work he had already requested communication from me. We emailed several times throughout the day.
On Wednesday night, I got home and had some household chores to attend to - cooking myself dinner, among other things. Also, the Beans were needy and the blog wasn't finished for Thursday or Friday and I had some work to do. Therefore, when 'David' emailed me on Wednesday night, I did not get back to him.
I emailed him on Thursday morning. When he asked me why I hadn't emailed him back Wednesday night, I explained to him that I had stuff to do, including the blog. We emailed throughout the day and he asked me if I'd like to meet next week. I said 'sure' and we made plans to have dinner this coming Tuesday. When I got home on Thursday night we emailed back and forth several times and his last email said that he had his daughter this (last) weekend.
Friday was a HUGELY busy day at work- you know, where I practice law. I was putting out fires all day. On top of that, my stove was on the fritz and I had someone coming to look at it so I had to take off a little early. Then I had Beans to attend to and then I had dinner and then I had emails from work to deal with things that came up after I left. And, you know, I wanted to watch the season finale of 'Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team'.
Needless to say, I did not email 'David' on Friday (and he didn't email me, either). I figured since I was super busy and he had his daughter and we had never actually, you know, met each other, I'd just email him on Sunday to see how his weekend was.....
On Saturday morning I got up to this (entitled 'Goodbye') and apparently sent to me at 1:36 a.m.:
I have gone ahead and canceled dinner.
Have to say having time to 'blog' but not respond to my e-mail only shows to me lack of interest in me and excitement in developing something real..
I'm sure you are very nice, but I feel I have made a mistake...
I will say goodbye, take care and good luck...
I have to say, I was a little stunned. After all, I'm usually the paranoid, neurotic, needy one in all my non-relationships.
I guess I really blew that one, didn't I?
And I mean I was planning to quit my job, give up all my hobbies, sell the Beans and dump all my friends later in the week so I'd have time to wait by my computer for 'David's' emails. I just hadn't gotten to it yet.....
Clearly, I'm not the girl he's looking for.
In case you're keeping a list, we have another item for it:
- No gym rats
- No campers
- No nancy boys
