Banging My Head Against the Wall

Dream Guy invited me to a movie.  We've never been to a movie together.  We've attempted to watch plenty of movies together, but have never actually gone to one.

Neither one of us likes scary movies, but we both love the paranormal.  We watch Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, and other random shows having to do with the paranormal. 

So, Dream Guy sent me a text the other day that said, "Paranormal Activity.  I want to see it.  You need to come with."  Mind you, I haven't heard from Dream Guy in weeks.  My response?  "Ummmm...  Ok?"  Nothing more was said...  Until last night.  I got another text that said, "Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  Lady's choice. 7 or 9:50."  I was a bit taken aback, but simply responded, "7 Tuesday"  To which Dream Guy responds, "Yay!  I'm so excited!"

Am I completely retarded or did I miss something here?  This man goes weeks without talking to me, invites me to a movie, and is excited to see me?  WTH?  Where have you been, Dream Guy?  I certainly haven't gone anywhere.


Part of me wants to shoot him a text at 6:45 on Tuesday and tell him I'm not available.  Unfortunately, I'm completely smitten with this stupid man and I know that I won't do it.  I do know that something has gotta give, though.  Dream Guy is gonna have to make a choice - Just Friends or More Than Friends.  I'm fine with either choice.  Obviously I'd prefer one over the other, but I'm fine with either.  I guess in the meantime I'll just try to figure out how on Earth we're going to make it through a scary movie WITHOUT clutching desperately to one another...

I've only been reading your blog for a little while but you sound just like I was a long time ago. Please don't be offended by this, but sounds like he's just not that into you (have you read the book yet!??!?!) And as far as I'm concerned, he's an idiot. Don't waste your time on him. Move on and find someone who is that into you! You are worth it.

What's wrong with clutching desperately to one another? ;)

@ KA - Totally not offended! I've been friends with him for 15 years and by some strange twist of events, lines got blurred. He is an idiot... Hahahaha!

@ Dawn - Ummmm... Nothing?

Maybe he is just as confused as you are. Maybe he is hesitant to "blur" the lines with out chancing the friendship. I say go to the movie, clutch desperately to each other and see what happens.

Oh well then that's a different story (I should have done research on Dream Guy, lol) Then I agree with Over Thirty Mommy. Have you had the "So, what exactly are we to each other" talk yet? It sucks to do but might give you both a little piece of mind!

I SO need that sign.....
I'd use it ALL the time!
DOH!

@ Erin - Steal it sister! It's all yours!

@ KA & Over Thirty Momma - We've had "The Talk". It hasn't helped. He wants his cake and wants to eat it, too. He loves that we can just be and things are uncomplicated when we are together. He is also single for the first time in his adult life and is "getting it out of his system". I get it. I've been there and done it. It just sucks that our timing is off. That we both agree on.
