Blue Suede Shoes

There was a guy I was going to spare from this blog, but recent events have caused me to change my mind. If you are reading this: SURPRISE! You get to read about yourself after all!

So I started talking to a guy a few weeks after the "hockey debacle" and found him quite attractive. He had a great sense of humour, and seemed to get mine, which was a rare occurence. I found out that he was office guy by day, Elvis impersonator by night :-O!!! The only thing that concerned me was that he appeared to be much more experienced than myself in the sex department, and was open to much more than I was/am.

He was, however, the first guy that was able to get past my tough exterior and point out that I had a "mushy middle". This made me nervous, as I don't let many people "in", and he had figured me out. This one was trouble.

Just before Halloween, Elvis and I met for drinks. I noticed immediately that he was rather "metrosexual" (and he fully admitted it), which was normally not my type, but since my type had not been working out too well for me, I decided to give him a chance. I also thought he was much better looking than his pictures, which was also extremely rare! He sat very close to me and put his arm around me. I realized that I was really starting to like this guy.

As things were going quite well, we decided to go see a movie down at the Beaches. Before the movie started, he leaned over and kissed me and it was amazing...made my toes tingle :) We watched "Saw II" and I was scared/grossed out and held on to his arm the entire time.
After the movie, he grabbed my hand as we walked out and I was just fine with that. He drove me home and we kissed again. He asked if he could see me again later that week, and I agreed. He sent me an MSN message later that night to tell me he had a great time and was looking forward to getting to know me better.

The next day I was on cloud 9 at work - everyone noticed what a great mood I was in. When I got home from work, he called me to tell me he had found a restaurant one of my friends just opened that I had been looking for the night before. He said it was also an excuse to talk to me again, and wanted to confirm we were still getting together on Wednesday or Thursday night.

And then he vanished for two days.

My friends told me I was crazy, that there was nothing wrong, that he was just busy. I told them I wasn't crazy, that something was wrong, and that no one is that busy. Wednesday night, I left him a message asking if we were still on for that week, and in return I got "The E-Mail":

Hey Muffin!

Hope you've been having a great week. I'm sorry to have left you hanging here, that wasn't my intention. I really had a great time with you on Sunday night.

I had met someone last week from Lava for a brief date before she went away for the weekend, and we'd said we'd get together again when she got back... we did, and have really hit it off... so much so that I feel like I need to give this a chance and see where it goes without the "multi-dating thing" going on. I don't want you to misunderstand this.. I was absolutely sincerely interested in, and attracted to you. If things don't go where they could with this, I would love to be able to get back in touch with you and get together if you're still single then too.. if that would be ok?

I still think we'd be a lot of trouble together! hehehe

Anyway... we can keep each other on our MSNs if you'd be ok with it... I hope you understand... but if not... I'll let you call me "asshat" ;-)

Sincerely,
Elvis

If I had blue suede shoes, that would be the point where he stepped on them.

Okay a) don't call me Muffin (that's what I call people, and you lose muffin priveliges when you send me "The E-Mail"), b) don't ask me out on a second date when you know you're meeting up with a girl you've met already and think it might be going somewhere, and c) I hate men.

What did I do? I took the high road and told him that I understood and appreciated his honesty. Over the course of the next few weeks, I had to watch his nauseating declarations of love for this girl through his MSN names, and then just before Christmas, his name informed me that he was engaged. I had to delete him from my list, for fear of never being able to keep my dinner down again.

So last week, guess who contacts me? Yup, things didn't work out and he was in the process of moving out of her place. I thought it was a bit soon to go back on Lava, and assumed a big part of doing so was to make the ex-fiancee jealous. We talked a bit, but were both busy, so we agreed to catch up later. I noticed that he wasn't online for a few days and I resorted to my trusty msngeeks.com. And guess what? Blocked and deleted, baby!

Oh well, I didn't feel like getting engaged next week anyways :-/
