Should I Call Him?
I was talking to PO about a guy I gave my number to but he hadn’t called me yet. I was trying to figure out if I should call him instead (even though he’d said he’d call). New level of weirdness – talking to a guy I once dated about another guy. He gave me some good advice, though. Here’s the conversation (via blackberry messenger).
PO: I wouldn’t call … if he didn’t call I say forget him. What man gets a woman’s number and doesn’t call?
ME: Good point.
PO: Kind of a wussy to me!
ME: What if he lost my card? Hahaha. I’m being a girl.
PO: He didn’t, would you lose Brad Pitt’s number?
ME (excited that PO was comparing me to the female celebrity equivalent of Brad Pitt. Angelina Jolie?): LOL. I’m not the equivalent of Brad Pitt. I’m more B-level celebrity
PO: Just saying, he’s either a wuss or not interested
ME: LOL. Got it.
Catherine’s Internal Dialogue: How cool would it be to have PO as my dating guru?! I could run all my dating problems by him! He’d be my Will and I’d be his Grace (if Will wasn’t gay)! Wonder if in the end we’d realize we were supposed to be together all along? Ah, probably not. But still, that would be a fun development.
Lesson For Today: He didn’t lose my number. He just wasn’t interested. Next.
In Unrelated News: I’m at a work retreat for the next two days. Ice breakers, ropes courses and drinking with coworkers, oh my! Since I’ll be so busy bonding with my colleagues spanning our five offices who have all congregated in Richmond for this special occasion, I’m not sure I’ll have much time for dating, recklessly flirting or updating the blog. Considering it’s likely, probably, allegedly a bad idea to flirt with your coworkers. So I’m told. But I am wearing a date dress tonight, so a lucky bartender may get some of my attention. I’ll also have a lot of time to obsess over my current dating dilemma – how do you know when you’re ready to stop dating and concentrate all your efforts on one person? I have come to an impasse with Chef. More on that Wednesday. Maybe I’ll call PO for some advice in the meantime.
