losing interest

seriously? when did this happen? when did I lose every ounce of my ability to read people?

it looks like I assumed incorrectly. (well, we know what they say about assuming.)

anyway, we're still trying to find time to grab that drink. but it looks like my friend S is interested in just a friendly one.

I don't know if it's the timing. he seemed possibly interested in more when I saw him last week. but when we couldn't grab a drink over the weekend, he seems to have lost it. interest, that is.

I know I'm not the greatest judge of intentions, but is it really this bad? or is my timing this completely off?

when I began to think he might be interested, I began to realize I might be. even if he was, life's craziness apparently stepped in and changed something.

well, although this little turn of events brings with it the end of the suspension of the bet, at least I'll have a new niece tomorrow, or the next day, or...

Aw, RG. I have the same problem. I don't have a clue. But let's face it, they don't always give us the best traffic signals. I've been out with men who have panted after me, I've have to push them away...but apparently I push too hard because if I like them back, I never hear from them again. Of course, if I don't like them, they always call. Sigh.

Psst... I'm gonna help you out here...

[flipping through the Guys Handbook]

Rule #75 - If a woman asks you to get a drink [coffe or otherwise] then she may likes you [may just be friendship]. If she buys you a drink at any time during the outing, then play your cards right my friend and you could be spending more time with her [like at a movie, or dinner].

Now you didn't hear any of this from me ;)

Hey!!! My copy of the Guys' Handbook doesn't HAVE a Rule #75!

That explains EVERYTHING!

No worries...they're like buses. Wait 20 minutes - another one will come along! :)

Watch -- right about the time you resign yourself to thinking he's only interested in friendship, he'll do something to get your mind whirring again.

I think whoever said that guys don't think about things as much as we do was right. Probably, he had something else on his mind (like football) and was distracted. You never know! :-)
