So, I’ve been communicating on another dating site (I know, I know – the betrayal, the horror) with an eligible bachelor. He’s close to my age, lives nearby, and is also a workaholic. Perfect for me!
This morning he sent me an email – sweet, thoughtful – but he made a reference to something that made him laugh and I thought to myself, “Self: he thinks he’s being funny but I don’t see it.” And suddenly, I lost interest. I flashed back to my ex, who sent me a YouTube video of his attempt at stand up comedy, and it sucked. I had to force myself to laugh when we watched it together so I didn’t seem like a total raging bitch.
I felt like a complete asshole. Here I was, talking to a really nice guy, and I was about to cut off communication because of a lame joke.
So, guess what I did?
My first inclination was to stop writing to you. But, I sucked it up and continued writing to him.
And despite his consistent use of the term “LOL” I’m still communicating with him. And truth be told, he’s lovely.
