The second date is cancelled and there's not going to be a raincheck.
Last night I got a text from the Cute Guy saying would we say we'd meet at eight tonight at Ashton Lane. But warned me that he wasn't feeling very well and was a bit worried he'd come down with swine flu (one of his colleagues had a suspected case of it) so if he survived through the night I'd be first to know. Fair enough, I thought.
Didn't hear from him today but I assumed maybe it was because he was REALLY ill and couldn't even face picking up the phone. So half an hour ago I text him asking how he was. Cos after all, if he wasn't going to make it, I would still have time to make other plans.
I was expecting him to get back to me and say that he was too sick and would have to leave it for now.
What I WASN'T expecting was a text ten minutes later, not mentioning being sick but instead telling me he was really sorry, but he couldn't see me anymore. That he'd been chatting recently to someone he'd went out with for a long time and that they still had feelings for each other. That I was a lovely person but he couldn't ignore a four year relationship.
Talk about blindsided.
I am in absolute shock.
Just in the past two weeks there was times when I was questioning stuff, wondering if he would contact me, if he'd want to see me again. I didn't expect the "ex girlfriend" angle though.
I knew it was too good to be true that he was single. There had to be SOME kind of catch.
Now I've found it.
He's a twat.
Another one bites the dust.
(I'm okay, by the way. Just shocked and a bit angry about being messed around. Still better it happened now.)
