Overthinking things, as usual

I’m a bit nervous about Smiles – we were barely in touch this week, and he cancelled mid-week plans that we’d had – he had a work event that he’d “forgotten about”.

We do have definite plans for this weekend (he’s already called to confirm – good guy). Will have to take a temperature then. I think after four dates, it’s not unreasonable to discuss if we're presently seeing other people – right? I’ll just have to gauge how I’m feeling, what kind of vibe I’m getting from him, etc.

I want to be excited about him, but I’m afraid to get my hopes up. The usual conundrum! You know what “they” say: if you sense someone is pulling away? You’re probably right. Sigh.

Tonight will also be my first chance to ask him about his morning dash from last weekend. I think my approach will be to make a joke out of it and see what he reaction is.

In the meantime: I got an e-mail from H this week – I cancelled our date last week for valid work reasons, and told him I’d be in touch once my work load lightened up. He wrote to check in, to see if I was still buried under work. I think this weekend’s plans with Smiles will determine how I’ll respond.

Remember the guy formerly known as Hot Young Guy, who later morphed into Supreme Dickwad? He texted me one night this week, asking if I’d like to meet for a drink. At 2 am. Dickwad indeed! I decided that no response was the best response.

I am shocked that Supreme Dickwad had the balls to text you!!

Interesting about the pulling away thing--I'd actually never heard that before. Instead I've heard that men are like rubber bands, doing that "pull away, snap back" thing. However, if I think about it, most guys who pulled away from me were on their way out anyway.

I digress. I hope this isn't the case with Smiles and that your meetup this weekend goes very, very well!
