The Male Ego

There was this guy. You know, the one I talked to after my last date, (AA) stood me up. He was nice. Actually, he was really nice. The trouble was that once I gave him my number he texted and phoned me 24/7. I mean really, the guy wouldn’t leave me alone. He started texting me a play-by-play of his day, “I’m going to the store now” then “I’m going into a meeting now” then “I’m eating my lunch now” then what became his habitual “goodnight hun. xoxo”.

After about two days of him calling me “hun” and sending me virtual kisses I wanted to poke my eyeballs out. That wasn’t the only thing though. I also found him to be a bit annoying and obnoxious, and if there’s one thing I don’t have a tolerance for, its irritating men. I realized how much he irritated me when he asked if I wanted to hear his British accent and I spouted out a hard “no” and then he said “you’re kind of mean sometimes, you know”. Umm yeah, never a good sign. I felt like a snob, but the guy was driving me crazy.

 I had already agreed to go out with him so I felt bad when I texted him to break it off. I felt even worse that I had to text it but he was at work and I didn’t want to leave it to the last-minute, so I did what I had to do. I tried to be polite about it and let him down easy but his ego was majorly bruised anyway. That didn’t show up until I refused to change my decision though. At first I was met with “I don’t understand what I did wrong” and “but you didn’t even try” which then turned into “oh so you did have chemistry with the guy who blew you off though?” in a snarky tone (that was when I stopped humoring him by replying). His girlish behaviour just reinforced my decision more. For a girl who goes for the alpha male sort, this guy was way off.

I tried to be open-minded when I was conversing with this guy, but in the end I’m glad I didn’t bend on my ideals. I’m sure if I wanted to I could have entered into a meaningless relationship in a heartbeat, and don’t think the thought didn’t cross my mind, but that’s not what I want in my life.

As a side note, I still have three or four more stories to publish for The Worst Dating Story Contest, before I can decide on a winner… so I appreciate your patience. I’ll try to have them out for you to read as soon as I can.

  1. If he was annoying and needy before you even went out with him, then it would’ve only gotten worse after you went out with him. I think you dodged a bullet with this one. xoxo
