How many times?! I have had six texts (four at the weekend, two this week) from someone, who I wouldn't give the time of day to, asking me out for a drink.
All well & good if he was actually decent. Why can't I have someone nice pursue me?! Just a nice, normal guy with a decent job, a decent sense of humour & no funny ideas about girls who ride. Why does it have to be what can only be described as a muppet?!
There are many drawbacks to this but still he tries his luck. I politely replied to his texts over the weekend & then didn't answer them at all. I thought I'd got rid of him until I got a text mid week. And then another.
The drawbacks are mainly as follows;
He is blonde (the two blondes I've gone out with have turned out to be monumental prats. And I'm not naturally attracted to blondes generally. One of the many reasons Brad Pitt is not on my 'yes' list)
His chat up line was telling me he loved horses & riding but the only reason he did was because of the womens arses in jodhpurs & boots. He then asked me how good I looked in mine & would he ever get to see? Errrrr, no!
He's older than me. Not usually a problem but it is when he is such a dick.
He called me darling the first time he spoke to me. No, I am most definitely not your darling.
He is under the very bad delusion that he is funny. Oh yes, about as funny as being struck down with herpes would be 'funny'.
He uses text speak. When there is absolutely no reason to use it.
He wears an earring. Very, very few men can get away with wearing an earring. He is not one of them.
Oh yes, I've struck gold with this one......
And why is he texting me? Because my sister gave him my number whilst slightly drunk because he 'liked' me & I am 'lovely'. Unfortunately she didn't have enough brain cells available to her at the time to realise that was a Very Bad Idea.
She realises it now. Because I have told her so. It's alright for her to laugh in my face about it all though, she isn't the one being chased by a total fool who has no concept of the word 'no' or what constitutes good taste in male grooming.
I can see the amusing side now but last weekend, none of it struck me as remotely funny. There is background to this & I probably will blog it if I'm brave enough but for now, I hope my inbox does not feature a text from the muppet ever again.
And if I wake up one day & decide to become a lesbian, it is the fault of (nearly) the entire male of the species & their utter stupidity when it comes to women.
No offence to men reading this, this is just my personal experience!
