Is there any possibility, even the slightest, tiniest, minutest chance that after approaching a man about being FWB, that he would lose interest?
After initially talking to “Sam” (yes, while drunk) •I like making new friends •Let’s be buddies! •Of course mate! •Some stupid random shit talk •I’m not interested in finding or getting another boyfriend any time soon •Recently got out of a long term relationship •So did he •More random shit •I’m just having fun •Oh my god I love this song let’s dance •Fuck yeah! •Bad tone deaf singing •Dancing •Getting closer •Dirty dancing •More truly horrible loud singing •You’ve got a great ass •Even dirtier dancing •Oh shit we’re kissing, so much for mates. Then eventually I told Sam; I want a friend with benefits. There was a lot of kissing (great kissing!) and touching, a lot of talking too, though for the life of me I can’t remember much of what was said (imagine that!) I do remember him getting a hard-on a few times, then very unfortunately as we’re squeezing through the crowd, him holding onto my hand to not lose me, only half a staircase until we’re outside getting a cab, and my cousin’s standing right there. Shit. I was staying at her house. Shit, she won’t leave. He asked for my number, rang my phone, we kissed for a long time again, nope she’s still there. See you later Sam. I guess the universe keeps telling me not to do one night stands.. Ever! It’s starting to piss me off to be completely honest.
Bring on last nights texts:
Me: Yes Sam?
Sam: Will you marry me?
Me: Oh set a date! I’m in love!
Sam: I knew it
Me: Well your great kissing skills would make me agree to a lot of things
Sam: Is that right? Like catching up this week
Me: Like catching up this week?
Sam: Yeah, you, me. This week
Me: So that was a question! Yes I would like to
Sam: How’s your calendar looking Lucy?
Me: Pretty white with some numbers, words & shit. Yours?
Sam: Oh good. So I’ll be grabbing that smart ass of yours tomorrow.
Me: Haha! Any chance you could grab it Friday? I’m actually pretty busy this week
Sam: Yeah I could grab then…
Me: Just a simple yes or no would work too!
Sam: Goodnight Lucy
Sam: Sweet dreams
Me: Goodnight Sam
To me, this conversation is deflating. I read the texts again this morning and I’ve realised that I’m a sarcastic little bitch and could very possibly be a bit cranky when I’m tired. I feel like I should just write it off to be a no-go. But I wanted to get your thoughts. So ladies and gentlemen; Do I make different plans for Friday? Or is there still a chance I’m getting lucky?
