Writer's Block

Hey friends! It's your friend, Bree.
I've been terribly busy the last few weeks. I have been meaning to write for a couple weeks. So here we go!

Almost a month ago, I was e-mailing a guy on Match.com. (Side note- may I just say that the match has yet to produce a good spark, let alone a flame.) I'm calling him the Writer. The Writer seemed smart and funny. He called me after a few e-mails and we had a good phone conversation. I used my best active listening skills and screening techniques. No red flags, good conversation.
A few days later, we met up for coffee at a nearby coffee shop that I frequent often (will be nameless). He was a few minutes late. (One of my pet peeves as I am almost always early.) I was a bit disappointed as he looked cuter in his photos. We had a good conversation and some laughs. We ended the night on a friendly hug. I caught a cold over the weekend and was out of commission for a week.

Date number 2 was after Halloween. He invited me to meet up at his place and then we'd walk to a nearby bar. I was feeling nervous and anxious. I had butterflies in the stomach and my palms were sweaty. This was worse than going on an interview! It was foreshadowing. We hung out in his place for a couple minutes. This gave me plenty of time to peruse his bookshelf. Nothing scary. 

We walked over to a bar and then he sat next to me at our booth. The next thing I know, he was holding my hand, stroking my arm. Yikes. It was a bit much. Not enough to make me feel uncomfortable but I wasn't feeling it. 

Afterwards, we went back to his place and had some water. We watched a couple online comedy sketches and then he tried to nuzzle me. Yikes. I got out of there as soon as I could. I had to explain that I wasn't used to so much physical attention and that I am slow to warm up. The Writer then proceeds to ask me if I wasn't interested. Wow. 

So I pretty much assumed that was that. Then tonight, he texts me! He asked where he could get free moving boxes. (He told me he was planning on moving soon.) I replied- it was a very short text. Then he responds and it's a conversation starter text. I replied another brief text. A few minutes later, he called me. I didn't feel like answering so I let it go to voicemail.
 
I checked it not too long ago. His message was short, something about him just giving me a call.
WTH is that?! I don't believe that he is boyfriend potential and I am not physically attracted to him. I think I will "forget" to return his calls.

If anyone can shed insight to this baffling behavior, please leave a comment.

On a short and unrelated note, I've been going through a dry spell. I texted my ex, the Comedian. (Yeah, yeah, I know.) I won't be seeing him soon after all. Perhaps it's better this way.

Until next time!

Cheers, Bree
