Mission Aborted

So Operation Replace Brian has been aborted. I can’t replace him. I can only get someone who is similar, maybe better (or worse), but not him. Last night we attempted to go out and just ended up at a pool hall. We chilled, drank, the normal...then it really hit me...he’s leaving. End of story. Period. Adios. Sayonara. Goodbye. He’ll be gone the next three weekends, then when he gets back, I will have just a few weeks before the plug is pulled. So to occupy the time, he somehow managed to have in my already busy schedule, I’m traveling more. New York this weekend, home the following weekend, Vegas & the Dominican this summer, and if I can squeeze another trip in to Jamaica...all the better. Maybe even a trip to see him...


In Other News:

Tool 1 & Tool 2 keep calling/texting me.

Tool 1 (James) sent a text: Hey, I haven’t heard from you since our date. How are you.
Me: Good. Busy. It’s just bad timing. Sorry

Tool 2 (JB) leaves me 5 minute messages, and sends me at the minimum three text a day. One in the morning, one in the afternoon, one at night, and a few random ones for the hell of it.

I’m thinking about just getting a new number altogether. It always seems someone calls/text from out the blue, that I don’t wanna talk to. Latino Papi Alex still sends me text messages from time to time. Tony text me last week, as well as the Old Man. POW kindly reminded me that I’ve had my number for almost 6 years...yeah, I think it’s time for a new number, although I have become quite attached to it!

I would like to be the first to say... that I smell something fishy... I'm going to NYC this weekend, Vegas this summer, and DR later in the summer. What gives?

I finally got that number memorized so if I lose my fon I still know it. If you change it you'll probabley never hear from me again LOL. Plus you would have to get a new area code and the old one is nostalgic.

In other news.....

I'm gonna miss Brian too and I've never met him. What would this Blog be without him

P.O.W.

DJ. I like, no LOVE to travel. I’m going to NY to get out of the city. I haven’t been anywhere since my Feb. trip to Jamaica. I’m going home cause I haven’t seen my niece, who was born in Dec. plus I’d like to see my Mom & G-Ma for Mother’s Day (although I’ll be 3 days late) The DR, couldn’t pass up the price. Vegas is a free trip too...can’t beat that, all I have to do is buy my plane ticket!!! Also, Brian mentioned visiting him in July...

@POW You change phone numbers like you change hair styles...you'll be ok.

I'm sure if I hadn't met Brian, I would have met someone else to hang out with... or it would be about all the Tools I meet...

@ POW- Yeah, Vegas better watch out!!!

True2me said...

Lol,

Dont change the digits..just text them to stop texting you, they will probably say something like "You weren't all that anyway" or the dreadful "Y", but dont respond. Who cares, get some balls and tell them stop, unless you want the attention ;P

Sorry about your Brian leaving :(. I felt that way when my ex said he was moving to colorado...

DC DIVA DATING ADVENTURES said...

@ True - LOL. I hate being mean...I try to do the slow fade thing, cause I really do have a bad habit of running into people when I'm out. Plus I have a few businesses on the side, & you never know when you'll cross someone you used to date, kick it with, etc. This guy I met last year, ended up sending some business my way!!!

So I'm trying to be nice & not respond....but they aren't getting it

I think once he's gone it will be easier. I honestly can say I'd add him to my BFF list!

I had the same issue of old used to be's popping up with random text messages and phone calls and then getting upset when I don't remember who they are? Like dude you can't be serious!! I say change the number. For some reason, dudes seem to hold on them FOREVER!!! Why? Who knows! I changed mine and I'm glad I did. Only those who I wanted to have it, got it.

True2me said...

if you change the number, then the contacts who may send you business won't have your info

further if you change your number and don't give it to them, then they will KNOW you aint want to keep in touch

either way..they'll know..so

keep up with the slow fade, I feel thats your best option

i'm glad you've realized you can't replace brian. noone is replaceable because people are different. they can be similar but not the same.

as far as changing numbers i haven't changed mine since 2003 and i don't plan on changing it anytime soon. lol. i like my number and i don't want to go through the hassle of giving a new one out to all my friends and family.

I have had my number for 10 or so years because I am lazy. Instead of deleting numbers from undesirables, I put "Don't Answer" next to their names. It's quite helpful. Stupid boys shouldn't win and make your life more difficult...

DC DIVA DATING ADVENTURES said...

It's not cause of the last few tools, it's also randoms that pop up here and there. I have a few do not answers in my phone, but I was thinking since I'm trying to start fresh, a new num may help. It just seems to be the easiest way...I'll mull it over...

favorisntfair said...

Diva! He's leaving...what are we going to do without him??? Will there ever really be a similar friend like Brian? I love the fact that you are keeping yourself busy with all these great trips in the meantime. I like the idea of the slow fade to stop talking to people. It usually works for me..but these guys seem like some suckas who don't mind looking like lames. IDK

favor (Christin!) - yeah. I'll miss Brian, but I've been thinking about all of the positives that will come of his departure.
1. I'll have somewhere new to go!
2. I'll take up a new hobby besides drinking, therby saving me money & calories!
3. Absence makes the heart grow fonder!
