officially... i'm done

he still hasn't responded. maybe i went too far texting him today. maybe i scared him off. the thing is, i just offered a movie. its not like i told him how many kids he needs to father for me. i can't do this. i put up with years of never being the highest priority. calling back when its convenient, not polite. i just won't do this again. maybe its just that he's shy. but good hell... all he has to do is text me. its a common courtesy to respond with a "sorry, but i'm busy" i wouldn't bother him after that. and i'm not going to anymore. if i get delusional again, please remind me.

interested people respond. i quit. i can't & won't handle this emotional stress. no one is worth this to me anymore. harsh maybe, but life is easier on my own, i guess.

I agree that a text should have been sent back, but maybe you shouldn't write it off completely yet. Give him another day and see if there is any response. Hey, there is a possibility he didn't get it. Sometimes if I'm in an area without service, I don't get my messages....

Sorry Hayley. Maybe it is just a misunderstanding and he didn't get it. (Maybe he's in Vancouver, and he was in this meeting and all the power went off and the phones were all dead...Amazingly enough, or he is the roof top killer sorry I just watched you've got mail;) I hope he isn't just being a dink. I am completely confident there is a great guy out there for you. You just keep doing what you're doing living your life,being a great teacher, a fabulous auntie, and a fantastic friend. You deserve someone who puts you first. I had a long steady line of jerks, and all of a sudden I got the very best guy for me. I know you will too.:)

One more thing. Who does this jackass think he is not calling you?? He should be doing back hand springs that such a cute,smart,funny girl is giving him the time of day. Come on now! You own your own home,you are a great teacher have beautiful eyes, tight buns what more does he want. He will have to do some serious begging to get back into our good graces. That is all for now.

I'm with you. Be done. It may have scared him off a little bit to get an invite so soon, but if he can't handle that, he's not your guy. Seriously, we don't handle unresponsiveness well. And we know it. So we embrace it and kick people to the curb when they disappoint. xoxo

I think he's too shy to be as forward as you are. Maybe he's just planning what to do next, and he's a little slow... or busy. You said yourself Wednesday was the only time you two could schedule for dinner. Don't write it all off so soon. We love you Hayls. <3

Don't give up...you are a darling girl!

I'm not loving "Greeeeg" right now. He is not sounding like "our" type. :) Yeah, if he can't handle a text about going to a movie, oh boy!!!

i'm so sorry, hayley! that totally sucks. yeah, you totally deserve polite. doesn't sound like he's a good boy to hang with. you're way to good for that crap. hang in there.

Kristi said...

So, here's my two cents: Greg can stick it...ok, I know I don't "know" him, but Hayley, seriously, if he can't handle a little text message: then chiggity check yourself before you wreck yourself, you know what I mean? :)You are a lovely, funny girl and you deserve better...

Emily said...

Ditto Kristi. If a man...um boy can't handle a text then he ain't for you! Good grief does he have his head up his butt or what? He's missing out on a good thing!

Amen to all the above. It's only common courtesy to respond - in one way or another. I'm annoyed that you got NOTHING in response. Boys are DUMB.

Girl James said...

no offense ladies - but Hayley I feel your pain. Easier said than done to just write him off (say all the already married women who haven't had to deal with dating relations in who knows how long!). We know we deserve better (obviously), but well...let's be honest, not responding for day - that's probably one of the better ones.

Maybe if he's shy - he's old fashioned too. Maybe he likes to be the one to pursue? I don't know. I say, as long as you actually like him (not that finally you feel interest in someone)...stick around a bit longer.

Boys are stupid! And he definitely doesn't deserve you!
