Ok. I know I said I wouldn't. But I make no apologies for this.
Since I last blogged it, I have spoken to WhataWaste (as named by Cazzie!!!). I have a morbid phobia of awkwardness. So when he came down to do some work where I am, I really tried to make it as normal as possible. And just before he left to go back to his own world, he mentioned that we still had to catch up for drinks after work sometime.
And I thought: Yeah. He's still interested. Kinda lazy and unmotivated, but interested.
I sent him a text today letting him know I would be in the city pretty much every day until I went back to work, if it was more convenient for him to catch up there. And I got a reply. He's busy weeknights, maybe next weekend. He has plans for this weekend already...
he's going camping with his GIRLFRIEND!!!
Uh. Ok. Here's my freshly torn out heart. Its very small because you took it from someone who feels about 1.5 inches tall.
All I know is that if I were his girlfriend and I saw the texts I'd sent him trying to arrange us meeting up, I'd do my 'nana*. He's had plenty of chances to tell me that he was seeing someone. Such as
- When I was fishing for info about who he spent New Years with ('mostly older people')
- The time I joked about him not getting any on his birthday
- The day after Valentines. WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT WHAT WE DID THE NIGHT BEFORE.
I wouldn't date a guy like that anyway.
*'nana = some obscure Aussie reference to a tantrum. Pronounced like the last bit of banana. Hence the ' in front.
