Bad influence

I caught up with Anonymous this evening, over Bloody Marytinis and chips. We were talking about the in's and out's of online dating. Then Anonymous said something that made me flinch:

"I hate it when people stop responding!"

I looked guiltily over my vodka, horseradish and tomato concoction, "That's... me..."

Whoops... So, Filmster Date had SMS'd me a few times over the weekend. I had responded once, then thought, "Aaah, can't be bothered". That's me being lazy :P It takes a lot of energy to be witty and charming! I just make it seem soo effortless *grin* I also didn't want to lead Filmster Date on. So I left it. Until tonight.

You're a bad influence, Anonymous :P

I admittedly cringed as I typed out an apology email. Maybe I was reading too much into it. Maybe Filmster Date already hates me and thinks I'm an evil cow. I went for the "Honesty is the best policy" approach.

Me: "Sorry for being so crap with the SMSes... I've been lazy. Reaaally lazy. And to be honest, I didn't want to lead you on. I had a fun night last week, but my heart's not into being more than anything than just friends at the moment. I hope you understand, and I hope you don't think I'm a bitch. Well, not too much of a bitch anyway..."

FD: "laziness, eh? good excuse! well, fair enough, thanks for being honest. i kinda figured you probably weren't up for anything more. but i did really enjoy meeting you and had a great time. not many people make me laugh as much as that! don't think you are a bitch. well not too much anyway haha!"

*Phew* At least I didn't make any enemies :) I'm starting to wish I could outsource all the yucky parts of The Game. What's that saying?
It's all fun and games until someone loses an eyeball?

Anon is still fresh on the market, however, I don't think it'll be long before he gets snapped up. If you'd like, I'm more than happy to do an introduction :) Email me!
