Midnite texter


I woke up this morning to a text from The Coach that was very bizarre in content and timing. As background, he has still been texting. He actually even tried to call over the weekend, but I missed the call. He left no vm. Then I got a TEXT (of course) saying that he tried to leave a vm but wasn't sure it went through. Suspicious.

Anyhow, he tried to call again last nite, but I again missed the call. I never got around to calling him back because I talked to my friend Molly and The Banker (I know, right? he called again!), then crashed on the couch.

Long story short... I woke up this morning to this text (sent at 2:55 am -- the time he gets up for work):

Im sorry it didnt work out 4 u. Ur very attractive & seemed 2b alot of fun 2 b with! Good luck 2 u!

Yikes. Now I feel badly and think I should (maybe?) respond. Not necessarily because I want to go out with him again. More because I don't want him to think I'm a huge B. and I'm sure he really is a very nice guy.

Or am I just being silly?

Sounds like he is wondering why he didn't hear back from you, and your response (whatever that may be) would give him some closure or some hope. His last text makes it sound like this guy has some manners & figures he lost out on a great girl.

Your Coach blog said there were no sparks. I know you don't want to lead him on, but maybe he was very nervous at your 1st mtg. From what I've learned over the years, 1st impressions aren't always accurate - maybe he is worth a 2nd date to see if your 1st instincts were correct.

texts like a dbag. who gets that complimentary over texting. Really?

you should respond. tell him you were busy getting your hair did so you could look more like Janice from the muppets.

i find it weird that he didn't leave a vm, and then sends a text message assuming it's not going to work out. granted, it's not going to, but still....via text?? weird.

i guess you should call him and/or respond to his text, if you feel it's the right thing to do. go w/ your gut.

Seems like he has some self-esteem issues, which doesn't look good for the long-run. Sounds like a nice guy, though. So, closure text or VM?

Talk to Sarah & get her take on this - none of us know this guy.

Sarah's advice was to let sleeping dogs lie. Plus, it's been too long to respond now anyhow. :)

sounds like he's looking for some closure from you. BUT, I wouldn't bother responding.. spend your time with the banker (my fav).
