Oh, goodness. That's two Ilanas in one week!

So I was supposed to have a date tomorrow (Friday). He hadn't called since he asked me out the previous week (or so I thought), so I called him up to see what was going on.

Apparently, he thought the date was off because, apparently again, he called me Monday night at 10:30 and woke me up (I had gone to sleep very early that night after waking up at 3:30AM and traveling all day). Those of you that have known me for a while know that waking me up from a deep sleep is very dangerous. Hopefully, those of you that don't know that will never experience it. Apparently, I told him off. He wouldn't say what I said except that it was pretty offensive.

After we hung up, I checked my caller logs. Yup, we spoke for several minutes. D'oh!

Okay, so this isn't cool. How am I supposed to meet somebody when my own subconscious (or whatever/whoever it is that picked up the phone that night) is working against me??? Or maybe it's working for me, as I may have decided over the weekend that I didn't want to go out with him at all...such mysteries!

No, I think it this is a great start for a date, or for something more even. Since you have this experience, you have no reason to pretend during those first cumbersome moments of the date, and you can relax. And having something to laugh at together is the key to, well, a good relationship.

Umm...no...no date for me. Sorry, Matti, my optimistic friend. He's apparently scared of me, and I need a non-wussy man! After explaining the circumstances, I kind of told him not to call again.

Mane the Mean said...

What a sissy of a man. Yes, you should steer clear of him.

Wow, 4 comments on an Ilana post before I even read it ;) I'd have thought that you managed to set low expectations, so the date was guaranteed to go well. But now it's too late, on to the next (hopefully non-wussy) man ;)

Ilana said...

Nah... would not have gone well. Y'all are just too optimistic!

Boys who get scared off by loud noises piss me off =D I need a man who is brave enough to kill large insects!!!

I got a good chuckle out of this. Hey, at least you showed your true self (even if it's your subconscious self). Yep, I'll be scared too. Hey, you know what, I can be your date on Friday. How about sushi tonight, huh? ;-) No seriously.

Yoav said...

Mmm, sushi tonight sounds good...

I think it would be fun to call Ilana around 3am or so and see what she says :-)

as someone who has been on the other end of the phone... I would not recommend calling at 3 am... she may not answer... try calling at say 1130... much better... just when she falls asleep is when you can really get some good words from her
