So I’m doing this program called fearless and you’re supposed to make a fake phone car in front of a large group of people and embarrass the fuck out of yourself. Max picked coming out of the closet to his parents but I think that would make me laugh too much. I was thinking I could do one where I act like I got cheated on and I am the ultimate cuck. Will pick the highest rated comment.
A few weeks ago, I matched with a girl on Bumble who goes to the university about 45 minutes away from where I live. She is 21 and I am 30. When we first matched, she was super flirty and we had good banter going. I gave her my number and she texted me almost immediately. We traded messages a few more times then I suggested we meet up for drinks the next time I’m in her town (I go there a few times a month for work). She agreed.
A few days later she said we should talk on the phone. I told her I’m not really into using my phone unless I have a reason but since we haven’t met, I told her I would if it would make her feel more at ease. I tried calling her that night. No answer.
A few more days pass and she texts me again saying she fell asleep and she’s been studying hard lately… blah blah blah. So I say that’s fine let’s just meet up on the weekend. She agreed. I text her again that Thursday to set something up. No response. I figure okay, she’s ghosting and move on.
Then, a few weeks later she texts me saying she’s sorry and that she almost failed her class so she had to focus on school, leaving her no time for dating but now she wants to talk again. I say basically no thanks but if you want to meet up let me know and left it at that.
Another couple weeks go by and she texts me again out of the blue saying she wants to talk on the phone again. I text her back saying I’ll be in her town for the weekend, we can talk then. No response until today (Sunday after the weekend I said I’d be in town). Again, telling me I should call her tonight.
Every instinct in me is saying just ignore her and cut ties. She’s just doing this for the attention even though I’m not giving her much at all anymore. I’m wondering though if there is any way to win this situation? Do I give in and call her? It almost feels like she’s catfishing me at this point. From her maturity level and status she’s not really someone I’d care to have a relationship with but she is smokin’ hot so if we had something casual it would be great.
I know I should just move on but before I do, I have to know if there is any way this can work in my favor.
One of my buddies asked me to critique his video on approach anxiety and it’s actually really good. I learned a lot about how to overcome it when it creeps up on me randomly etc so I thought I’d give back a little bit and post it here for you guys!!
