Polyandry

Posted in *cringe*, The Funny, The WTF at 9:02 am by Dagny Taggart

It’s a misnomer, but I think it’s a funny one.  This guy obviously had things he cared about in his life, things that were really important to him.  What was almost too amusing to be insulting, was his complete and utter lack of motivation to actually go on a date with (just) me.

So I met him through friends, during a celebration.  It was a great night, and I certainly thought there was some chemistry – at least, more so than with other people I had met recently.  After the main event, we had a great conversation at a bar, and went our respective ways at the end of the night.  He got my number, and a light peck.

About five or six days later, there was a message in my voicemail.  We traded correspondence, and we made plans to meet up for an event he had already planned to attend with his roommate.   I was fine with this – having other people around gives you a chance to get to know the person’s friends, and takes some of the pressure off.

The next date was also tandem, largely due to preplanned activities and scheduling conflicts elsewhere.  When the third outing proposed was also a group event, I had to back away slowly.  It was becoming readily apparent that this was never going to be a one-on-one activity.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that – it’s just not my cup of daquiri tea.

Anyway, I’ll see you all tonight, hopefully!

  2. INPY: Should I even bother pretending to be sorry? 😀

    This could have been like “Big Love” only from the other side.

    Are you sure that’s where this was going though??? Were there hints to this?

    Alas, family commitments yet again keep me from the Happy Hour. Watch, next month’s will totally coincide with the NaNoWriMo kickoff party, too…

  5. V. Kent: There weren’t hints – I mean, he didn’t advocate nearly as strongly as some have, for say… midget porn. But it’s so much more flattering to ME, to tell it this way, no? 😉

    Nato: Family commitments I can understand – but if the latter is true, you could always still stop by, no? 🙂

  6. Hmmmm, am I still banned from these things? I mean, I’m not that:

    Smart

    Funny

    Pretty

    Intimidating

    Am I? Well I am but you know what I mean. Haha, modesty like this soothes the soul :O)

  7. HBMS: You were only ever “banned” because you’d show up looking better than me. I’ll do my best to make sure that isn’t a problem any longer.

    wait, were these friends male or female, or mixed? i know guys who will arrange dates with two girls simultaneously and either angle for the 3some or play the girls off each other with a jealousy plotline in order to be assured of bedding at least one.

    Too funny! Especially in light of your previous entry :-p Thanks for the flashback to my Cultural Anthropology lectures. Amazing blog.

  10. roissy: I’m pretty sure that’s not what was going on here. But I’ll keep that in mind, should a similar situation arise in the future!

    Jon: Last things first – thanks! And the sad part is that this has actually happened to me more than once! Ah well. Something I said, no doubt. 😛
