But… I Hate It

So my date from Sunday? Called me last night… on the phone…just to chat.  Is this a thing these days? Or is it just because he’s older than me (7 years)? I almost didn’t answer; it had been a terrible, no good, very bad day, I was filled with rage that threatened to spill onto anyone I came in contact with, and just wanted to sit in peace with my wine and pizza. However, I pulled my head out of my ass and did answer, and then had to make small talk for 30 minutes. 30! I’m not even kidding, we talked about hurricanes, blizzards, earthquakes, and bad drivers.

I have about a 15 minute attention span when it comes to phone conversations. Especially if there is a piece of pizza gradually getting cold on a plate in front of me, so it was especially difficult for me to power through those extra 15 minutes.  I hate talking on the phone, with a fiery passion. I can do texting because it allows me to multitask and watch TV while having a conversation, but the phone? HATE HATE HATE. However, I survived, and he wants to have dinner next week. If he calls to set that up? I might cry. Anyway.

These two crazy kids are getting married on Friday, and I’m heading up to PA in a few short hours for a long weekend to celebrate their wedding. I can’t wait, I love them as a couple, and am excited to party with my old friends from home for a night.

Saturday I’m getting my hair done in the city and have a shopping date with my sister, and on Sunday the two of us are quite possibly partaking in the sister activity we’ve been waiting for months to do!  This may very well be the last trip to PA where I still have a house to stay in that is “mine” as my mom is moments away from putting our town house on the market :(. It will be bittersweet for sure.

Uh, so yeah, that’s really all that’s new with me. Hopefully the traffic gods will be kind to me on my journey north this evening. Later!

  1. #thatawkwardmoment your date finds out you have a blog and he’s in it. hahaha

  2. I hate talking on the phone with everything that’s in my soul. I feel your pain. But it’s nice that he wanted to show you he likes you enough to call you and stuff.

  3. Oh my gosh I hate the phone too. I hate it SO much. Thankfully most of the guys I’ve dated haven’t been phone people either. I’m MUCH happier with texting.

  4. When Brandon and I were dating while I was in college, we would hardly ever talk on the phone because we both hated it so much. We’d just check in to make sure we were both still alive and save everything for the weekends. Phone = the worst.

  5. a) awkward
    b) no one actually calls anyone anymore!

    ooouch. this is bad. just be nice and get busy at work. lol.

    ps– I stalked your blog a bit. I think you’re really brave. & beautiful. It’s a tough time, but you’ll get through! Ps I just got dumped and I’m unemployed. I just raised you a career and financial crisis, didn’t I? ❤

  6. I can’t even tell you the last time I talked on the phone. I mean, even my grandma texts me.
    If a boy called me, I’d totally ignore it, and then text him back five minutes later asking what he wanted. I’m a grown up like that.

  7. The phone is totally the worst. The last guy I dated would only get phone calls from me if I had been out indulging in adult beverages all night.

  8. I’ve had some great phone conversations, but… they weren’t always PG. I guess that kept us on the phone longer? We weren’t doing THAT thing, but sharing fun details and whatnot. Anyway, I think when you’re really into someone it’s easier to chat, but when not it’s like pulling teeth and you want to get off the phone ASAP!
