Virtual Punch to the Gut

6 Nov

So my hot new secret boyfriend, the one that’s so secret that he doesn’t even know about it?  Yeah, he has no idea who I am.  After emailing yesterday afternoon, and into this morning he sends me this:

Not even sure if we’ve ever met…. the “@[my company’s name]” leads me to believe you work with this gir1 that works there….I am her boyfriend’s Bad Influence Friend…She can attest to that….

Ouch!!  Clearly, I had a really huge impact on him. 

No, wait, he does remember (based on his response).  And suddenly it’s been 20 minutes since I sent him an email and still no response.  OK, guess that sums that one up. 

Time to move on to the next one. . .

    Maybe he’s in a meeting or something. Stop being so damn negative. If he admits to being a bad influence, he’s obviously tons of fun. Don’t give up on him so easily.

    It’s too late. It’s now been 45 minutes. The last email he sent was at 9:16, I sent one at 9:17. He’s not in a meeting, he’s just not that into me. Bastard! Why can’t I ever have one of the cute ones? -CS

    He was probably overserved last night, or is a moron in the morning.

    When he sees you again he will remember your fabulousness, and kick himself for buggering up in this e-mail. WHICH means he will grovel to get to spend more time with you.

    Yay for grovelling!! And bad influences!

    He officially sucks for hurting my feelings. I will just drink my mojitos and give him the stink eye the whole time. That’ll show him! -CS

    Oh, I forgot, yay for mojitos!!!!!

    And I’m taking the next day off of work so I’m getting my Boozy Suzy on! -CS

    This is what I love about women: in your mind, you guys were in month six of dating and you were wondering when he’d pop the question, and he’s like, “Maybe I’ll bang this chick.”

    Still, I officially disapprove of this guy now for forgetting, then for ID-ing himself as a Bad Influence Friend. If you need to advertise, you’re not tough/good in bed/actually a bad influence.

    We are wired to be crazy, it has to be the hormones. I seriously was thinking about how I would rearrange the furniture to fit his into my house.

    If you disapprove, I’m officially not interested in him. No Pistosl at Dawn approval? No deal! -CS

    Mabe he’s trying to build your interest. Give a little then pull back, Give a lot then pull back….and do a little dance.

    If by “dance” you mean “throw a tantrum”, then I’m totally following your plan. -CS

    I’m with Pistols here, both about the ten year relationship that women have already lived before the drink you’ve ordered for them has been made by the bartender, and the fact that he identifies himself as the Bad Influence Friend proves he’s not Fonzie.

    Although, him saying that to you means: a) he’s straight and b) he will sleep with you. It does not mean he’s single, however.

    We totally do that. Seriously, I do it with just about everyone. I’ve got my weddings planned out with you guys too.

    You forgot c) he’s not interested in me. This is evident by the fact that he never wrote back to me and he opened the email an hour after I sent it. It has been over 6 hours. That equals not interested. -CS

    I’m with Jenna. It sounds to me like there might be an interest from him!

    Really? Because never writing back to me doesn’t sound like he’s interested to me. -CS

    Just a question – did I show up to our wedding in your imagination? And did your parents approve?

    You showed up, get hammered, and then passed out before we did it. Not very romantic. The next day you had to ask me what happened because you blacked out. You then proceeded to get hammered again and hit on the receptionist at the hotel. -CS

    Now that’s a plan I can get behind!

    Wait – did it happen? Because that sounds exactly like me.

    You mean the wedding? Yeah, it happened. The whole relationship ended in tears, yours. I took you for everything and then did it with your best friend. -CS

    Damn it, that sounds like me as well. This story checks out. However, best of luck with my “everything,” which was probably $8.02 and a mild case of the herp.

    Nope, I’m clean. -CS
