The secret diary of a single parent bloke
Perhaps unsurprisingly, I haven’t been very bothered about keeping in touch with Dee. However, she seems very keen on me. I’ve had lots of texts and phone calls, but I’ve been very non-committal about seeing her again. I really thought that I should just dump her, but she’s the first date I’ve had in ages, and she certainly seems keen (and, as I type this up in 2011, I realise that I was pretty desperate and fed up of being single in those days).
Tonight, I had a message from somebody via the dating website. I logged on, read the message, replied that I wasn’t interested, and logged off. Five minutes later, the phone rang- it was Dee.
She was furious, demanding to know why I had been on the dating website again [this particular website displays how long it's been since each person was last online]. What was I doing on there? Who was it? I shouldn’t be visiting the website any more! I’m with her now! What kind of person was I?
I carefully explained what had happened, that I was simply reading a message that I’d been sent, and replied that I wasn’t interested. She seemed a bit happier after my explanation, and wanted to see me again this weekend.
Then I came to my senses, and dumped her.
