A Friend Of A Friend .........that I had worked with just briefly on a little project passed along to my friend that he would really like to take me out. So of course my friend , being the 'good ' friend that he is, called me immediately to pass this along. So I dug around and found the man's number and gave him a call.
He was sweet and shy when we were working together so I thought maybe if I broke the ice by making the first move that he would appreciated it. Ok well he and I talked for several evenings briefly , casually , and decided to just see each other for sort of an evening picnic. So we were to meet at this picnic place and he was bringing wine and i was bringing food. We were going to meet at 6 pm, i talked to him about noon and he was coming . I get there a few minutes early and get the food out and stuff ... then look at my phone and it was ten after 6. I wasnt really thinking about him not showing , I just figured he had gotten busy and tied up or something and wasnt able to get away on time. So i walked around the little park a bit and came back to the table .... now it is 6:30. So I tried giving him a call and it went to voicemail. Now i was thinking , maybe he had decided to back out. So I picked up the food and put it back in the car.
It made me sort of feel icky, and really wondered if I had said or done something wrong. But I got to thinking , I really brought it on myself, If someone is too shy to ask me out then he really doesnt want to go out very bad . So learned my lesson, no more of that sort of behavior from me. If someone wants to spend time with me I will let them do all the work and persue me. And hope they show up for the date.
