- Wedding: January 2014
Around a year ago I joined this ‘womans group’ to get together and have coffee or whatever. It seemed like a nice idea since I’m older (meaning not a teenager), work a lot and live far away from where I grew up.
Anyway, I meet this woman who lives in the same city as me. We went to one group thing together… She wanted me to meet her at a certain location at a certain time after she got off work in the evening. I said ok fine. I got all dressed up, hair done, make-up on and whatever else. When I got to the meeting location she said she needed me to wait about 30 minutes because she needed more time to go home and change. I was already there and I did want to go to the group thing so I said ‘ok’ but was not excited about waiting. She took more like 45 minutes to get back to the location which seemed like 3 hours when your waiting for someone outside at night. My fi was with me waiting because he didn’t want to leave me alone which irritated the hell out of him.
The group thing itself went fine and was nice. Just because I don’t know many people I tried to touch base with her a couple times after the group thing… I sent an e-mail to her saying thanks again for driving and look with forward to doing it again sometime. About a month later I even went by her business because I was thinking of using her services, she never got back to me with a response on her service quote. Anyway, she never did call me, email to say hi or anything, nothing. My fi could not have been more turned off by the entire situation, he loves me and thinks I’m great so he didn’t understand why this was happening to me. I thought it was to bad because I live in the same area as this woman and thought we could get together sometimes. But, whatever.
Fast forward to now…
It may be a close to 4 months or more since I’ve seen or heard from this woman. Let me just say I hate facebook. That said, I did remove her from my facebook friends. I didn’t do it to be mean, I’m not 15 years old. I removed her because I felt it was odd to keep her on there and to let her have updates or whatever on my life and friends when it seemed clear she wasen’t interested.
Today I get a email from her asking me to do something like dinner and a movie. I may be crazy but isn’t the proper time to contact a ‘new friend’ somewhere before 4 months pass? Am I crazy? I literally live about 5 minutes away from her. She could have reached out to meet me for coffee or whatever at any time. The thing is at one point I thought it would have been real nice to get to know her. Now I’m wondering why she took the 5 seconds out of her life to write me an email after 4 months and after I removed her from facebook? At this point I feel more irritated at her because it would have been nice to get to know her had a little effort been shown on her part. And now I wonder why she bothered to contact me?
I think I got more irritated the more I wrote this post. If you have an opinion feel free to throw it out there.
