And Another One Bites the Dust...

Tuesday, June 28, 2005

So last night I decide to give The New Redhead and her Friend a call to see how Saturday went and to see what they were up to for the week. I decided since The Friend was the one to call and invite me, I would call her first.

No answer, left a message again.

Next I call The New Redhead. She does answer.

TNR: "Hello?"

Me: "Hey how's it going, it's 'Slacker'."

TNR: "OH! Hey! How are you? What you up to?"

Me: "Not much just got home from work. How was Spin?"

TNR: "It was fun! Very loud though, sorry we got cut off."

Me: "No prob, what ya up to?"

TNR: "We're just getting something to eat."

Me: "Cool, who ya with?"

TNR: "Just my boyfriend."

Me: .oO(DAMMIT!) "Cool!"

That sound you hear is the pieces falling together in my head. It's like at the end of The Sixth Sense when you figure out Bruce Willis is dead. So many odd parts of the rest of the movie makes sense.

The New Redhead was the more chatty, flirty one of the two, but The Friend WAS the first to give out her number, and she WAS the one to call and invite me out. Suddenly it make sense.

I swear, you non-single women need to wear buttons or something. At least then us poor unsuspecting guys know what we're getting into. None of this talk and flirt and seem like you're interested stuff, only to drop the B-word later!

Yes, a lot of guys might resemble big, dumb animals, but we're people too! We might be cute and cuddly, but we deserve better than to be toyed with like that! We're the hunter gatherers, going after the big game, not big games to play with! You women came from a GUY's rib and this is the thanks we get!?

BUTTONS!

It should be a law or something. I think I'll call my senator.

At least The Readhead's Friend is cute too. Just not redhead. If she drops the B-word I'm callin' Bush.

Edit: I'm really not all that bummed out, so don't worry, just had to rant ;O)

porbrecito...maybe if the other girl is single you can convince her to dye her hair red. Is it still sexy if it's dyed?

Aww...

This is sad yet I can't help but break into a smile when I read your post. In defense of TNR, I would only have to say that she thought that you were interested in her friend. Being friendly and flirty is probably the way she is around all guys.

But I do agree with you on being lead on. Were you pretty clear in your interest in her? Maybe she would have stopped being so flirty if she knew. Or maybe she did know but flirts anyway, which is what both members of the opposite sex do anyway.

Not only guys get the run around, I can only speak for myself though. So, is TNR's friend still in the picture?

TO be perfectly honest, it sounds like she blew ya off.

She thought you were someone else initially, then when she found out you weren't who she thought you were, they didn't answer your calls.

I don't know if she has a boyfriend - broads say that all the time just to dish 'ya. Trust me, it's happened.

I'm not trying to be negative, I just call 'em like I see 'em, and sometimes I might need some glasses. ;)

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that. I had to chuckle a bit in regard to your rant about women needing to wear buttons if they're taken. ;)

So TNR's friend is a possible contender?

You are too funny!!! You never fail to make me laugh (sorry, that it's usually at your expense), but I do feel your pain!!! If it weren't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any! LOL

I told you...you need to quit "the search", when you aren't looking, that's when you will find! LOL

Good luck!

Aurora - yeah, it can work if it;s done right!

Sarah - I know it's not only guys, jsut had to rant from a guys side. I'm total flirt to, just my persionality.

Cap B - She was basically jsut confused about the bar. TNR made it sound like they both planned on being at Kickball on Thurs, so who knows.

Marie - They do need buttons! Can't be wasting the mojo on the taken chicks! And any cute single girl is a contender.

Bean - I wasn't really look when they decided to come talk to us... And no worries about the laughter. The thing didn't really bug me, but it did make me want to rant about it. :O)

"I swear, you non-single women need to wear buttons or something."

Yes - I have been told something similar. And it really pissed me off!! Made me think I wasn't worth the guy's effort in talking to me. Humph.

If women wore buttons, men wouldn't see them. Or some of them just don't care. I remember not once but TWICE when I was engaged and had a ring (should be better than a button, yes?), the guys didn't seem to mind my taken status. BOTH of them, several months apart, responded to the same way when I cut off their advances with, "I'm engaged."

"Well, I won't tell him if you won't!"

Nice.

So, not sure the button will do a damn lot of good for anybody but you, dear ;) But if you want all the women to wear them just for YOU, I guess that's still a reasonable request ;)

Aww sorry,its the friends fault,lead her on and tel her u got a girlfriend...nah jus joking.

Jezzy - The thing is, if they guy won't talk to you because he knows you're not single, then he's only afer one thing and not worth talking to anyway. I would still talk to a non-single girl, I jsut wouldn't get my hopes up!

Kira - Yeah, you're probably right, I am a lot nicer than a good chunk of guys out there. It seems having respct for other's relationships isn't what it used to be...

Nadz - Eh we'll see what happens if they show up to kickball tomorrow.
