The Groundhog

Got a call from The Groundhog this morning on my way to a client meeting. Why did I name him that? Because juuussssttt when you think you'll never hear from him again, he pops back up into your life.

I went on one date with him two (or was it three?) years ago after several weeks of talking on the phone. He was hilariously funny on the phone, but when we went to dinner he was really sort of weird/hard on himself/out of sorts. Sort of ended on a weird vibe, and then he started dating someone else (as did I).

Since then, he randomly calls every few months for several weeks straight, then fades out for good (at least, for what I THINK is for good). Side note: when he calls, he says, "Hi, it's me." Granted, I know who it is when I see his name pops up on my cell phone, but isn't the "it's me" reserved for BFs and relatives? And, he calls in the morning on his way into work... a time of day that is only acceptable for coffee and emergencies in my book.

Anyhow, how did we meet, you ask? He liked my friend Molly. Then my friend Carrie. (Actually, he liked them both at the same time, but that's a story for another post.) Then he liked me. (In his defense, I do have a very fun/cute group of friends.)

I do think he is super funny. And cute. And career-focused. And family-oriented. But maybe just a little too flighty. And definitely too random... at least, to this point...

Two things:

1. Ask yourself why Carrie and Molly weren't interested in him.

2. If it wasn't for anything other than bad timing, etc., then give him a chance. And when I say give him a chance, I mean, you ask him out.

Oh, three things (total):
3. Watch The Hills.

A. I love that you nicknamed him the "groundhog"

B. I think you need to keep him at arm's length (you know I'm not his biggest fan)


C. Invite him out w/ us on Saturday night so I can harass him and really enjoy my bday ;)
