So the infamous Not-Boyfriend sent me a message out of the blue yesterday. Before I dive into that mess, let’s go over the time table of the last month or so.
Saturday, May 26: Trip to the Zoo for my birthday. Me, him, my roommate, and another friend. Good times. That night we went to the bar for my birthday, the NB never showed up.
Monday, May 28: My actual birthday. Never got a happy birthday from him.
Tuesday, May 29: Got a long message apologizing for missing my birthday and how bad he felt about it. Made plans to hang out that Friday.
Friday, June 1: He came over to my place and gave me my Pet Name. Invited him to a baseball game the following Friday and he said he’d get back to me. This was the last time I have seen him.
Wednesday, June 6: Asked him via text if he was planning on going to the game with me or not on Friday. Told me he couldn’t make it and wasn’t sure if he had any free time to hang out that weekend. He said he’d let me know. He never got back to me.
Sunday, June 10: I invited him out to dinner at this Mexican place I adore, via text. Never received a reply.
Monday, June 11: He left some hipster joke on my facebook wall. I sent him a private message, asking him if he could pencil me in at all that week. Never responded, even though he had read the message (thank you facebook for giving me THAT handy feature :-/)
Wednesday, June 27: I sent him a facebook message saying “safe to assume you’re not going to that Red Sox-Yankee game with me next week?” No response.
Which brings us to yesterday, Monday, July 1. He sent me this little note:
Aw shoot, I’m sorry love, I totally forgot to tell you, I just went to Europe for 9 days! One of the frat guys was getting married in Ireland, so a few of us made a Eurotrip out of it and did Barcelona and London before the wedding. It was awesome and expensive and incredibly drunken.
The game does sound like fun but I think you should take someone a little more deserving. I haven’t been a very good friend to you lately. I’ll need to remedy that somehow.
HOW DO YOU FORGET TO TELL SOMEONE THAT YOU’RE GOING TO EUROPE?!
I am beyond annoyed. Yes, I’ve moved on (thanks to the DJ and a visit from the Baseball Player ;)), but I just want to scream at him! Even if he has only seen me as a friend this entire time….this is how he treats friends? Idiot. And even if he forgot to tell me that he was going to Europe for a week, that doesn’t excuse the two weeks before that that he ignored me completely.
So, question: if I sent a message back saying “Great. Glad you had a good time. Don’t worry, I gave away your ticket three weeks ago when you first stopped responding to any of my messages.” …..is that too much? Not enough? Give me some help, people!
