On Friday, I had a first date with a guy I met online. He was really easy to talk to by email and phone, but I was a little disappointed to see he was heavier, older and had less hair than his pictures showed. But, he was very nice and I'm trying to be more open minded, so I agreed to a second date. Since that date, he's texted me every 12 hours with updates on what he's doing.
Saturday a.m.: Thanks for the date last night! Headed to the grocery store now: I see melons are on sale. Yum!
Saturday p.m.: Had a good afternoon. Got a hair cut, then cooked dinner on my grill. Now I'm looking for something good to watch on tv.
Sunday a.m.: Hope you slept well! This morning I'm going to water the lawn, then clean the house.
I admit I haven't responded to any of his texts. I was super busy on Saturday, and didn't check my phone until just before bed. Now, I'm getting annoyed out by his constant monologue. I admit I've been single for a while, am fiercely independent, and don't feel like I should be accountable for all my time to somebody I just met. However, when I mentioned it to a girlfriend who usually has good judgment in these things, she thought it was adorable and romantic. She also thinks I'm being too picky and should totally go on a second date with him.
What does eHell think? Would you be flattered or totally annoyed?
