Well, he lasted 5 days. I knew it was unlikely he would suddenly change his behavior, but I did have hope there would continue to be progress. After all, he said our date last week that he wanted to see more of me, and that he’d try to be more communicative. But yet, another dating fail.
But really, what kind of person says that, and hears someone say “look I get that you’re busy but all I’m asking for right now is that you don’t ignore my texts“, and just 5 days later does exactly that?
I know how this will play out if I bothered to call him out on it:
- Hey, Kyle, you shouldn’t ignore my texts. WTF.
- Yeah but I wasn’t feeling well, which I told you on Friday.
- Come on. It takes 10 seconds to send a text, and since you were on social media you clearly had time for other things.
So there’s not really much point in going through all of that again, is there?
I had followed him again on Instagram, thinking it was a laurel branch. He didn’t follow me back (game playing, perhaps?), but then over the last several days, followed several other women. Perhaps clients, perhaps just women he thought were hot. Still.
But fine, whatever. Then of course he would show up in my “following” feed and I reached my tipping point when I saw a few times over the last few days, he was active there. Liking the usual women’s selfies and men’s travel pictures.
While I completely understand people may sometimes want to just scroll mindlessly through social media, it’s different when someone you are theoretically interested in is waiting for a text back and you can’t be fucking bothered.
So I unfollowed him. I know he will notice, and he’ll know I’m pissed, he will retreat even further (not that it’s possible), and I don’t particularly care. It’s bullshit, and it’s not the first time.
I knew it would happen, but still hoped it wouldn’t.
And yes, although Kyle is a very tall man, to me he’s lacking in empathy and respect which makes him very small indeed – hence the new picture.
