Last week I got an email from the Zoo Date, who entered my life in March of 2011 and exited it shortly thereafter. I remember very little about him except that he was funny and kissed rather… enthusiastically.
The email read as follows:
This is […] (aka The Zoo Date). Anyway, I was reading your blog and just wanted to say hi and see how you’ve been. I’m working downtown now, and I was wondering if you wanted to grab lunch sometime? I’m really sorry about not calling you back in the day when I should have, but I’d love if we could reconnect and be friends.
Have a good one,
My goodness, it’s lovely to hear from you. How are things? Don’t worry about “back in the day.” My conduct wasn’t exactly Nobel Prize worthy either back then 🙂 But yes, lunch would be fab. My schedule is winding down for the semester but I’ll be teaching near Rittenhouse quite a bit. Perhaps somewhere in that neck of woods?
That was almost two weeks ago. TWO WEEKS! And I’ve not heard from him since.
I didn’t email him, he emailed me. And I agreed to exactly what he suggested so why the cold shoulder all of the sudden? I don’t really care (my new Plenty of Fish profile has proven rather popular, plus I’m pretty sure he was a Republican) but it just doesn’t make sense.
So… to all of the men reading this: what gives? Why would you email a girl out of the blue after three and a half YEARS, ask her to lunch and then drop off the face of the earth?
