Really, I'm just amused by this... I've posted before about my married girlfriend. She's gotten much better with her social skills since I met her. She's a good friend and is there when I need her, but boy she can't stand it if I get more attention than she does from men (yes, I said she's married). Saturday night, we were out at a new karaoke place. We've been going for a couple of months and it's just opened, so we've gotten to know most of the regulars. There was a guy there- maybe 45 but he looked much older- who was bugging me. He was far too drunk and wanted me to "play" with him. I told him I don't play pool. He said, "Oh, so you don't know how to have fun?" Cue the b*#ch treatment. My friend was sitting right there. When I told her what he said, she yelled to him, "Hey! I'll play pool with you!" Fortunately, there was another guy there- a regular- who was all about making sure this guy didn't bug me or anyone else (which he was doing). He ended up getting the guy kicked out. Cue the second guy who was bugging me. At this point, the regular was sticking to me. He told me what he was doing, and I said it was fine. So after both drunk guys had been dealt with, the regular guy told me to take his number and to give him a call if I ever needed help again. I didn't take it as flirting or interest. He was just being friendly. Not five minutes later, my married friend asked him for his number. He told her no. (Hehe) He also immediately told me a story about a girl he gave his number too who started sending him inappropriate texts and he didn't like it. I think he thought she'd do that! So after he walked away, she said, "So, C said he gave you his number. What was it so I can have it too?" My answer? Ummmm...there was a 6 and a 2, and maybe a 1 something. I don't remember. I don't think she liked that much. But darn it, can't I get attention without her needing it too??? I think she's run a few guys off. Unfortunately, I'm not interested in anything more than friendship with the guy. He's respectful, protective, friendly....and maybe 25 and not so attractive. Isn't that the way it works? Btw- I did put paragraph breaks in this. They never seem to post that way, though.
