You know, some days are great and some days are not so great. Today was going pretty good until I spoke with a guy from match.com. Yep, I'm still on (and off) match.com. It seems to be the only way I ever meet any men, so I just can't seem to tear myself away. But (as many of you know) my results have been far less than stellar. Obviously I am insane and keep doing the same thing expecting a different result. Am I any less insane if I realize it?
Anyway, the guy today wanted me to drop all my plans so I could have dinner with him tonight - I told him I was booked up until the weekend, why didn't we plan something for then? He said he didn't plan that far in advance. That I should cancel my plans to hit the gym - after all, he might be the man of my dreams. I said the man of my dreams wouldn't expect me to drop my plans at the last minute and would want to date a woman who actually had a life.
He was pretty put off by this and couldn't believe I would choose to go to the gym over having dinner with him. I said, "I don't even know you - why should I change my plans? I'll be glad to meet you this weekend or some other time that works for you." Nope, he couldn't make a plan that far in advance and somehow after we hung up, I felt like the inflexible, problematic one.
