The Bombshell Confession

The saga with RacquetballGuy continues. What now, exactly? Well, after saying that I didn’t want to be his friend, I decided to try. I did so for three reasons: 1. It seemed foolish to banish him completely since my feelings for him were genuine. 2. We lived on different sides of the Atlantic and so maintaining a platonic friendship would be easy. 3. I wanted answers to questions and those would only come once he decided to open up completely. So towards the end of April, I decided to reach out to him. Those early conversations were painful, but we […]

The Reapparance & Disappeance of RacketballGuy

Yup.  You read that correct.  After nearly five years of no contact, RacketballGuy suddenly reappeared last August a few days before my birthday.  The company he works for in Chicago sent him to London on an extended work assignment and he called me a few days after arriving. I was in such shock and at first I thought it was some sort of prank but it turned out to be real.    And in that I didn’t have a boyfriend — I had just started going on dates again — I agreed to meet up for drinks, maybe dinner.  As there […]

No, Maybe, Yes, Maybe, No

Remember the UpstartPolitican? Well, I met up earlier this week. It was supposed to be for a quick hello as I was in the middle of attending a conference. However, I ended up spending the afternoon/evening with him shopping. Not for me though, for him. It was all rather bizarre. Within minutes of meeting on Oxford Street, he was dragging me from one high-end department store to the next, looking at suits, shirts, shoes, etc. Apparently he needed to stock up, and he was using my presence to help guide his purchases. Now I don’t enjoy shopping so have to […]

Contact

For nearly three weeks, no contact from either Basherter or RacquetBallGuy. Then in a space of a few hours, both initiate contact. Neither conversation is particularly warm and fuzzy! The one with Basherter was quite reserved and the one with RacquetBallGuy was quite strained. But he did disclose that he got the job in London so he is moving here next March if not sooner. Now considering that he’s been trying to move here for years, I’m pleased for him but I have to admit that I have mixed feelings. As I’ve alluded to before, part of me just wants […]

He Haunts Me

Last Wednesday came and went and no second date with ITGuy. Instead I went to a private shopping soiree at William Yeoward. I was totally relieved. Then Thursday, he sends a text message asking if I wanted to meet up on Friday. I didn’t respond. Then he sends another text message. I still didn’t answer. Then he phoned. I decided to answer but politely told him I’d call him back. After some thought, I decided just to send a text message back saying I didn’t want to go out with him again. Gave the somewhat lame excuse that I still […]
