Mystery Solved!

Have you ever been in “talks” with a guy and it seemed like he would only text message you? I’ve had a guy friend for many years now who text messages me to ask what I am up to, make plans to see me, or say little things like “hello sexy!” The strange thing is that I always answer him playfully, or in some cases, I have asked him to call me if I wasn’t in a place where I could text (ie: driving or working on something). The next day I would realize that he said “ok”, or “I’ll call you when I get home,” and then just never did. I would think, “Hmm. That was weird. Oh well. Maybe I hallucinated that. I did eat a lot of cheese sticks last night.” This same guy hung out with a friend of mine at one point and seemed to be very interested! He even text her all night from a hockey game while he was out with the guys! He must’ve been interested to spend his time out with the guys giving her most of his attention, right? … um…WRONG! There has been some late breaking news on this topic: It is now 5 years later and I just figured it out. (I’m embarrassed to say that it took me this long so someone had better learn from this entry so I haven’t just been made a fool of for no reason at all!) He has actually been texting girls while he’s out with the guys specifically to get attention from the guys he’s with- not the girls! We have to remember that sometimes we think that guys have it all together and we need to work to impress them. That is not the case. In some cases, they are just as insecure as we are - or more so! Don’t play with them on this. Anything you text back is going to be shown to a group of guys! Wait for a phone-call!…or try just not responding next time. He’s likely not into you at all! Here’s how I imagine it to go:

Guy: (sitting with friends in bar, picks up cell phone and texts 5 different women in his address book) “Hey Sexy! What are you up to?”

Girl 1: “Hey! Where have you been?”
Girl 2: “Hi! I can’t text right now. Call me!”
Girl 3: “Hey! Thanks for calling me sexy. Here’s a naked picture of me.”
Girl 4: “I’m making dinner for my childen.”
Girl 5: “Do you want to come over later and catch a movie?”

Guy: (turns to guys and laughs as he shows them how popular he is) “Check this out. This girl is so into me. She’s practically stalking me. Check out this picture of her! Women!”

This is why I’m building an ark!
