To The society of Romantics & Mislead Hopefuls,
I met a boy in Miami. Well actually I met two (there were a few more, but T2 and #3 are relevant for this post.) T2, while sweet and fun, didn’t quite click. #3 however was just right. We talked a lot in Miami, which is quite a feat considering all the loud carnival music and sweaty dancing. And he appealed to me.
Back in Toronto, T2, message me daily, and every time I would ask for #3’s info, I was met with silence. But I am great at what I do. So eventually I “sourced” his information and sent him an email.
We quickly met for lunch, at which he discerned that I was not interested in T2. We had a great lunch. But he’s one of the quieter ones. And since then it’s been a text here and there, imploring me to watch Heroes, asking how my day is going etc.
A lot of interest, no concrete action…..
And then this line: I may join you at salsa one day.
Dearest society, does this man think that the word ‘may’ is an appropriate way to convey interest?
I strongly suggest an intervention on your part,
