A guy I have been friends with for a long time and I tried to date about a month or so ago and it fell apart. We've always had alot of sexual tension btw us but never acted on it. It fell apart b/c he said all the right things but was all talk about how he wanted to be with me and no walk, never making a move and acting distant on dates. I got tired of the mixed signals and said I knew what I wanted and it was a guy who clearly showed that he wanted me. So it crumbled, but we're still friends b/c we didn't get into dating too deep for it to foil the friendship (no sex, yay for waiting!) and we've know each other for 15 years. But I'm still irked he pulled that crap, after saying forever he wanted to be with me, but when it was "go time" and i was all on board he jumped ship.
Anywho, we're talking on IM the other day and he asked me "i got a number from a girl i met in a bar last night. how long do you think i should wait before i call her?"
looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong pause...then i say:
"What the heck are you doing asking me for advice on how to bag another woman? i have zero interest in giving you dating advice, although god knows you need it."
him: "if you were my friend you shouldn't be bothered by this."
me: "and if you were my friend you'd realize how rude it is to ask the woman you stopped dating only a few weeks ago for advice on how to get into another gal's pants."
i have told him in the past i don't want to hear about his dating exploits (they make me jealous), and he respected my request, but then he does this. he also expresses jealousy if he hears me mention another man, so i don't do it.
my question is...was he completely a bonehead or was i being overly sensitive? i think he was testing my jealousy waters, which is so lame.
