Maneater - apparently.
Men. They are curious creatures are they not? Text messaging continued from Mr Highway Married Man, so much so, that we met up face to face for coffee. My, he is cute. And delightfully conversant. I concentrated on keeping my conversation clean and non-sexual, knowing full well that he is married, and not wanting to project a "come fuck me" impression.
Clearly, this is mere folly on my behalf. As one of my workmates commented, "Look at you - you just project sex!". Apparently I can do this over the phone, while talking about fixing X-ray machines. Go figure - my talents are far and wide-reaching!
He messaged me alluding to a few sordid details, and I finally decided I had to make a stand. Months of therapy is getting me nowhere unless I make steps toward not allowing bad men in my life. So I messaged back telling him in no uncertain terms that although I found him attractive, while he was married, I would not ever sleep with him. I went on to say that I do not want to be the other woman, as any man who has me in their life, certainly does not need anyone else! I also said that he should question his home life and just why he was seeking satisfaction elsewhere. Apparently this responsse shocked him. He said, and I quote, that he thought I was "just after a good time and not a partner".
Again - where in a conversation about electrical equipment and his soccer injuries did I subliminally convey that I was a good-time girl? Whilst looking for praise for making such a strong move, there are friends of mine who just can't understand why I just didn't shag him, since I am so clearly up for it!?!
Things are never easy in my life!
