The Unmentionables

Just because I haven't blogged about them, doesn't mean they don't exist, or attempt to keep the lines of communication open. Case in point, Chris. Haven't talked to him since October. I never called because everything was so SUBPAR (I had a better time at the doctor's office). I don't know why he never called. Well today he sent me a text. Uhhhh. Hmmmm. I don't think he got the MEMO. Here's the rundown on some of the OTHERS

Latino Papi Alex - He sends me a text at least once a week, sometimes in English sometimes in Spanish. I don't remember when our last verbal conversation was, but I do remember telling him that it's OK to call me, and I get tired of text messages...hence the reason I don't respond...guess he didn't get the MEMO either, maybe I should have said it in Spanish.

Akeem - I talked to him around my birthday. He wanted to know if he could show me some kind of demonstration with some product he's trying to sell (hawk to unsuspecting buyers).

Island Prince John - He calls me from time to time. The conversations are always the same. "When are you coming to see me", "I miss you". He called on Tuesday, and we had an ok conversation, but I think some things still get lost in translation...like hmmm, "Don't you live with your baby's mama?" I asked him if I come to visit, where am I going to stay. He said, and I quote "very, very close to me. Just know, no hotels ok? I'll make arrangements". Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but "very, very close" does not equal "with me" or "I no longer live with my baby's mama, I.e. live in girlfriend". Hmmm, I need someone to translate something to him in French for me...

Jamaican Friend - I haven't named him yet, but he's been calling and texting me consistently (TOO MUCH) since I got back. He knows I'll be back in Jamaica in February, and he's definitely trying to stay in my good graces. Thing is, I really don't plan on hanging out with him when I go back. He was ok, sweet, a little aggressive, not too bad. We made out a bit when I was there, but, well he didn't get my MEMO..."I don't do long distance".

Brian - Went home for the weekend (I.e. West Coast). Awe, I miss my hang out buddy.

Sadly, they rarely get the memo unless you actually spell it out for them (or type it out in an actual email or text). But then you'll have some guy tell you you should have just done the slow fade, 'cause no one likes to hear "go away". We're screwed either way.

@MLM - :( I'm sure there will be some cutie over there that will catch your eye... you'll have to let me know how it is...

Thanks BossMack

@SingleGirl - I concur. I think the fade is best when you don't want to hurt feelings...but the text/phonecall/e-mail is quick and to the point, no matter how painful, it's usually over asap...so I'd go for the latter if it's the other way around...

@ Mista Jaycee Lol, well if we take out one eating period and just call it a snack, I can squeeze another date in!

Honestly, I do stay in (rarely) and my mom would prefer that I remind her to set her dvr for American Idol, as she's hardly ever home herself!!!

P.S. I think they like the challenge and chase more than anything...the more you show "dis-interest" the harder they chase... now why can't this be true when you show "interest"

Do you leave me out from the list because I don't leave enough comments here :P?

Btw the way if you need help to translate what you want to say to Island Prince i can help :

Je vous donne suffisamment de temps pour se d├ębarrasser de votre copine. Au revoir John!

PS: My apology in advance for native french speakers for any grammatical error.

DC DIVA DATING ADVENTURES said...

@Wildcherry - :) Yes, but if you drop by more often, I'll add you to the line-up (along with you too E!)

Love the French...it's soooo sexy, and I didn't even know what it meant. (until Bablefish) but I think a few words got lost in translation...
