So here is a update for all my fellow Gatherers on Seth. Remember him? He's the lawyer from Albany who recently lost his job, kind of disappeared for about a week then resurfaced with minimal communication but told me he was still interested.
Anyway…he and I went on a hike this Saturday on Turkey Mountain in Westchester, NY. He was home to visit his family for Passover and we decided it would be great opportunity to do something. So I told him that since I was coming up to his area, he'd have to plan it. The weather was supposed to be nice so he opted for a hike. I am not quite the outdoorsy girl but this was a very easy hike. It was no Mount Everest! We talked the entire time and had a great time as always but I think the lack of communication and the length of time (1 month) between our first and second dates definitely put a strain on things.
I'm actually beginning to get a little frustrated. After the first date, I made a spur of the moment decided to buy Lion King tickets because he really wanted to see it. We are supposed to go this Saturday. However, I called him last night and he still has not called back. For somebody who doesn't have a job, it's taking him quite a while to communicate and return a phone call. I'm getting increasingly frustrated as this seems to be a trend. I'm at a point where I am getting bored and annoyed and I'd prefer to spend Saturday night with a friend than with him. Despite saying he's interested, he's acting completely uninterested. Actions speak louder than words.
I may just call him up and tell him that he seems to have too much else on his mind at this point in time but when he's settled to give me a call again. It's not fair to me to not get return phone calls or have my emails answered or to be left hanging 85% of the time. Even Matt, my boyfriend of 9 months last year who was so busy he barely had time to himself, always managed to find time to call me everyday, sometimes more than once. Matt's life revolved around his work and he was constantly on the go. It's just surprising to me that Seth has yet to call me back within 24 hours of me calling him and NEVER answers the phone the first time I call.
I'm not upset or angry, but disappointed. He put on this game on our first date and in the week there after that brought out that he was a great guy, saying things like, "I want to maximize my time with you so anything you want to do is wonderful." Or "you don't deserve to be disappointed again and I don't intend on disappointing you." So what happened? Well…although I'm not angry or upset, I am certainly disappointed, and maybe even a little bit confused.
Oh well. Shall I say "another one bites the dust?"
