Curiouser and Curiouser

I've just had a text from that bloke who dumped me in the Post-Before-Last. All the way from India, bejaysus.

"Hi - copious amounts of cheap alcohol and great food still can't get round fact that I should've scrapped hol and sorted life out. No email access - probably just as well. Miss you."


Well, so at least it's a bit clearer that he's towards the end of a relationship. Poor bloke. He seems to think that he's treated me really badly and although he hasn't actually said "sorry", he sounds pretty apologetic. Given that we never even snogged, he's getting his knickers in a twist about nothing.

I find the "miss you" a bit disturbing though.

In related news, I had an interview for a proper job today, at his company (one of the reasons why we'd been in touch, he'd been giving me career advice). Anyhow, I didn't get it as I am hopelessly underqualified, but the interviewer was impressed enough to offer me some temping work starting Monday. So I'll see him as soon as he gets back from his holiday...

Funnily enough, it's where this bunch of
cunts work too. (Happily, I'll be in a different department from all of them.)


  • Entirely up to you, but I don't think this is a good idea. I mean, if he splits up with his current whatever post-India, feel free to exchange some DNA on a purely on-the-rebound rudeness basis.

    But something seriouser? Nah.

  • Oh God yes, I'm not planning on doing anything with him.

    I didn't really fancy him after I'd gotten to know him a bit better, so to be honset, it's a good excuse not to go near him.

    Plus, I forgot to mention, he lives in the country! No.

  • I think this guy *really* annoys me - tell him where to get off...

  • hmmm, yes, he's on holiday with someone and sending texts to someone else; not too keen on this chap.

    btw - loved the hyperlinked 'cunts'. quite sordid.

  • just occurred to me - he probably hasn't seen that 'you're too old' comment you made. Should be fun to clock his reaction when he gets back.

  • I know this contradicts what I originally said, but he is obviously a complete wanker - still hedging his bets as well by the look of it.

    Besides, as you said, he lives in the country.

  • Sod 'em all Spinsterella. Just become a lesbian. He's obviously a dickhead who needs a rebound from a shitty relationship he probably deserves.

    I'm having a bad time with men at the moment. Does it show?

  • The "miss you" may be disturbing, but at least he didn't put some kisses on there as well.

    Oh and can I second the My God! On holiday! With someone! Sending texts to someone else! What a wanker! comments please?

  • i think it's quite sweet. but then i'm a husband-stealing slut, so what would i know?

  • Tosser. He ought to have a big neon sign round his neck says 'avoid'. Probably in red. I bet he has a brilliant story about why he's acted how he has too... As I said, tosser.

  • I don't know why, but I can't help leaping to his defence...

    He's a really nice bloke, and all he did was hang out with me (and not ditch his girlfriend but that's not my business. Though it would have been if he'd snogged me).

    Riddled may have a point - perhaps he hasn't seen my response yet and he thinks I'm all devastated. As if.

  • It's seems to me abit like he was telling porkies when he said he didn't want to get in your knickers. Maybe he meant while he was still seeing her which is kind of gentlemanly.
    What a mind screw though...
    Good luck with the temping shit, hope it opens more doors for ya ;-)

  • he's creepin me out bigtime. baaaaaad vibes.
    good for the job stuff! but you scared me-i thought you meant you were going to be working with piggy and tazzy for a sec.

  • "I miss you." This is creeping me out bigtime. He's game-playing, simple as that, sending out mixed signals. He's a fuck-up. Real men don't do it.


    Job done.

  • It is creepy. Of course I'd fall for it in an instant, guaranteeing years of ensuing unhappiness.

    By Blogger GreatSheElephant, at 12:57 PM  

  • This whole debacle has been pretty painless, given that I didn't really see a relationship happening anyhow.

    But I was just thinking, how would I be acting if I actually really fancied him?

    You know, I'd probably be making all sorts of excuses, and planning to see him again.

    God. I'm an idiot.
