Ok even though I say I am mean I am pretty nice. I don't like to hurt people's feelings, men included. With that being said I am an equal opportunity phone number giver outer. I also figure if I give you my number that doesn't mean that I have to talk to you unless I want to. You would think that I would have learned my lesson from my past. Well the past two times has truly taught me a lesson or two.
Lesson #1: Just say no!
Lesson #2: Wear makeup so I almost look my age or purchase a t-shirt that says 25 and under need not apply!
Guy #1 was 20 and a bugaboo. I gave him my number b/c he was persistent and he seemed relatively nice. I specifically told him that he could have my number on the condition of not being a bugaboo. I played myself. Dude called me everyday for a week. I received a phone call morning, noon and night. I received texts. I even received a text with a picture of him. Is that how we do now? We send pictures of ourselves now. A hot mess and a half! He finally left me alone when I didn't respond to his bugaboo phone calls.
Guy #2 I met Sunday. I gave him my number. We talked yesterday and he earned his 3 strikes rather quickly. Strikes in order that they occurred. Strike #1 was the fact that he works at a car detailing place. I am happy that he is gainfully employed but he isn't even in management. Strike #2 was the fact that he has a baby on the way. I had just got finished telling him that I was allergic to children and he says he has a baby. I have to tell you the story as it was told to me. He had a long term relationship with his girl and they broke up. They decided they wanted to try and work it out. They got back together and decided it wouldn't work. She went to the doctor and found out she was 5 months pregnant. This was all told to me after I asked so we going around having unprotected sex. It was a yes or no question with an obvious answer that was never answered. Then he says he doesn't want anymore children which is cool with me b/c I am not trying to have any babies with him (even though we know I want children, just not his). Strike #3 was the age. I asked him how old he was and this child tells me 22. What am I going to do with a 22 year old. I have liked someone younger in the past but I knew he wouldn't be settling down anytime so it was all for fun (need to call him to see how he is doing).
With that being said I am not giving my phone number out anymore. I hate the idea of taking a guy's number and deciding to call him but that is what I need to start doing.
