Texts from last nite

If you read this blog with any regularity, you are well aware of my disdain for dating in the digital age. As in, boys using text messaging to court a lady.

(Don't get me wrong. I'm not expecting some handwritten love letter delivered by pony express. But maybe, just maybe, can you pick up the phone to call me a couple of times?!?)

Anyhow... I just discovered an awesome blog that I can totally relate to: Texts from Last Night. It's basically a running list of crazy texts readers sent or received the previous nite. Mosey on over and check it out. I promise you'll be entertained.

A recent example posted on the site (the numbers are the area codes of the sender/receiver):
(425): Just met a synchronized swimmer, can you imagine the things she could do in the water(425): Legs for days
(425): Harpoon that

I bring this up because I think I may have a text to submit to this site now. After a few weekend texts from Val asking what I was doing on Saturday nite, he asked me to meet up for some beers sometime soon since I already had plans on Saturday. Fair enough. But then I received this text message from him:

What did u do tonite?

Well, at least he remembered the question mark this time. And the text in and of itself isn't bad at all. But here's the rub: the text came in at 7:04 am. Yes, he was still awake at 7 in the morning. Presumably from the nite before, since he used the word "tonite."

Now, I know it sounds like I'm jumping to conclusions here. But I did tell you that I thought he partied a little too much based on what I saw on his Facebook page right after he friended me last month. And today's Facebook status now reads: Val is going to lay low for a while. (Which, incidentally, was followed by several people's comments saying that would never happen.)

Do you think I'm jumping to conclusions? Or do you agree that this guy is just bad news?

But SO much fun. If nothing else it could be an entertaining friendship with occasional making out...

I think if you keep trying to read into texts and status updates you will be writing this blog for a long time

Jane - I know, right?

PJ - I think YOU might have stayed up until 7am. WTH?

Nessa - texting = ugh.

Slopmaster - ha ha ha! I like the way you think.

Kpoor - Maybe you're right. But I expect you to call out the search dogs if I show up missing one day because of some psycho texter.

Bad news. 100%. He was definitely up til 7am, and that NEVER means anything good.

Chuck said...

uh, I think you might be reading A LOT into a simple text. who knows what he meant, which probably reiterates your problem with him in the first place -all text and no call

I think it's very funny that all the ladies think he's up to no good, and all the men are on Val's side. Ah, the age-old battle of the sexes. :)

sorry, translation: i think he's on coke.
