After getting her response, I go silent for a day on her. Sunday rolls around, and while I would normally wait two days before contacting her, I decide that my chances of nailing a date down for the week are better on Sunday, which is when I make the majority of my plans for the week, anyway. The text threads goes like this:
ME: Big bird (callback humor), we’re hanging out this week. What’s your schedule
HER: <gives me times she’s open on Monday-Wednesday>
ME: Tomorrow. 7pm. <pizza place> (she’s too young for drinks)
HER: I have no idea what that is haha
ME: Awesome pizza. I’ll pick you up
HER: Sure, I’ll see you then
Seems pretty straightforward right? Something just didn’t quite sit right, though…at 12:18am I get the following:
HER: Hey Troublemaker, Im sorry but I just went out with my ex and he wants to get back together. Im flattered, but I dont think we should go out.
ME (12 hours later): “gay. “wants to?””
HER: Yeah, so I think I’m gonna. Sorry.
ME: big bird, I’m glad you found your soulmate.
STAY TUNED FOR PART 3 TOMORROW
