She Scah-wee

Okay Internet. I may or may not have scared off my new sex toy. I do believe that last Wednesday night I may have said things like, "I really like you." And, "Do you want to see where this goes?" And various and sundry things that make men run for the hills. I think I was whiny and pushy and in general, thinking that if I could whine enough, he might come over and sleep with me again. Sadly, it did not turn out that way. I may have entered the annals of dating as the psychocrazychickimetontheinternet.

So. Advice here. Last we talked, he was coming over tonight for a bonfire. But since that talk was a little crazed and confused, I'm not sure if he's ACTUALLY going to come over. And I heard nothing from him yesterday. Not certain if he's going to drop psychocrazypantsbitch just like that or if maybe I could/should e-mail him and see if we're still on?

Help me.

I'm not going to be much help but I thought you could at least laugh at this. I read quickly and saw 'sex toy', 'scared him off', 'do you want to see where this goes?' and I nearly died laughing.

Given the circumstances, you may want to revisit this later for a good laugh since it's probably not high on your priority list right now haha

Whoops. No advice from me, my friend. I am notorious for saying things I shouldn't. (Such as this: Anyone else notice how insanely cute Ben, the above commenter, is? I might be forced to cyberstalk him.)

IF I were giving advice, I'd say to go to the bonfire tonight and see if he's there. If he is, perhaps you laugh off your psychocrazypants-ness? But if he's not there, then take it as a cue that you're better off. You don't want a guy that scares easily. (Because if THAT freaks him out, how do you think he'll handle the really freaky stuff? Like whips and chains. I'm just sayin'.)

oh my god, im totally with ben! i didnt get that this was about an actual ANIMATE object until halfway through! ;)

i dont know the whole backstory, but i do think it's okay to send him a quick text or email to see if he's still planning to come over... good luck!

I would see if he shows. If he doesn't, then give him a yell to see what's up. But that's just me.

Tough call. If you decide to e-mail, keep it very short and sweet. Say something like: Just checking in to see if we are still on for tonight -- Kate. Keep it short and casual or you do risk scaring him off. Just out of curiosity, how many times have you talked with him since "the night?"

~thinking thinking~

A quick email to him to say; hey you are sorry if anything you said put him off, you were having a particularly difficult day and things you said didn't come out the wrong way and maybe just let him know that you are just starting to get back into the dating thing again so you'd appreciate it if he forgive you.

Besides if nothing comes of this...just think of it this way....something did come of this...you got your mojo back and took the big scary step...and now the downpour of men is coming your way.

I'd just see if he shows. I think e-mailing or calling might compound the problem if he's wondering if you're a bit needy. Just my 2 cents that's really worth 1/10th that thanks to inflation.

If this doesn't work...with the next one act like you couldn't care less and treat him like crap. See if it's as attractive to men as it seems to be to women.

Ben said...

Greencanary: Cute as I might be, I'm a big ole homo. Feel free to stalk, but just be aware ;)

Plus, are you comfortable stalking someone who thinks first of sex toys before human beings in reading blog posts?

No, no you don't.

So....did he show? I'm late to this commenting party. You could be having sex RIGHT NOW!!

oh shoot. i hate it when i say things that make me sound totally retarded. i tend to do it more often than i would like to admit. i am really curious how this ended up working out. i bet if you act totally chills about it all everything will be fine and you'll be rompin' in the sack in no time ;)

stoogepie said...

Yeah, I'm late to the commenting party as well. So, what happened? Bonfire or no?

GreenCanary said...

ben - Homo, schmomo. I think I like you even more now! Because sex toys are usually the first things I think about when reading people's blog posts, too. Let's be BFF, Ben. And if you're not up for that, I'll just stalk you in silence. (Okay, not silence, but I'll try to be stealthy.)
