We Bounce

One thing I love about E and I is that we bounce back. We're optimists when it comes to boys and relationships. (C-note is included in this category as well, but since she has a bf, she's an inspiration at the moment, as opposed to a partner in crime.)

We meet a new guy, we give it our all, he's not interested, we receive a momentary blow, and then we're up and at 'em the next day, looking for the guy who will think that we're all that and a side of chips. And 100% amazing.

Now, don't get me wrong. We give the real things the emotions and attention that they deserve. Our hearts get devastated. We cry the tears. But if it's a quick flirtation, a text message here, some witty repertoire there...we get over it quick.

That might alarm some guys, say if we flirt with their friend...and then go to them. Or if we, you know, flirt with one of their co-workers, and then go to them. It doesn't mean that you're Plan B. You're Plan A, in a long string of Plan A's that failed, and led us to you.

And on that note, since when did text messaging become the sign of "coming on too strong"? A couple of weeks ago, I met this person, and it was just nice to meet someone new, who is nice. I sent him a text message the next day. Not like "will you marry me?!?!" but a hello. Z, my advisor of game, informed me that that was a major faux pas.

I'm sorry, but if you're going to get creeped out by a text message, I don't even want to be your friend, never mind try to be your girlfriend. I accidentally do a lot of awkward, silly things on a daily basis. (plug for elle's blog - elleobeirne33@blogspot.com) You would feel too uncomfortable being my friend if a text message unnerves you.

So here's the deal. When E and I do one of the following things:

-say hello
-add you as a facebook friend
-e-mail you
-text message you
-call you

Don't freak out. Don't take it as "oh, we want to marry you." Don't be all like "oh my God. They're such stalkers." Don't flatter yourself.

We're friendly people. Both of us right now are at this stage where we want to meet tons of people, make lots of friends, etc. Sure, we're open to relationships. But please don't think we're falling in love, fast.

Wow, you've never done any of that crap for me, not so much as a text message or a message skywritten above my house. *sigh* Are you just playing hard-to-get with me, Meg?
 
Text messaging is coming on too strong??? did the guy answer :)
I dont think it's too strong and I say stay optimistic and keep on with those plan A's!
