A few weeks ago, I ran into a guy I went to undergrad with who now lives in the area. He asked if we could exchange numbers but I thought nothing of it. The next week I ended up sending out a mass text to my fellow alum to alert them to a happy hour our school was hosting. Needless to say, I run into the guy at the happy hour and he’s chatting with one of my girls. So I walk over a say hey and drag her away because I could tell she was trying to escape.
The next day I get a voicemail from the guy talking about it was great seeing me at the event and how great I looked. I didn’t think anything of it and didn’t return his voicemail. Then he sends a text saying the same thing. The next day he called and I answered without thinking. He asked me what I was doing and I tried to nicely tell him I was busy but clearly he didn’t get the hint. He starts asking all these questions like when are we going to go out and telling me about the huge house he bought out in Virginia. Guess he didn’t get I was feigning interest in what he had to say so I let him talk until he finally realized I wasn’t going to entertain his conversation any longer.
All this because I was just trying to be cordial to someone I went to school with. I have no interest in him whatsoever and never gave him any reason to think I was attracted to him. I swear with some guys you give them an inch, they take a yard. I wouldn’t consider myself a mean person, but it seems like it’s not worth it to be nice to some men unless you have an interest in them. I find it interesting how some guys think if you show them the slightest bit of attention that means you have an interest in them. I don’t get it.
