Made plans last week for drinks tonight with Paul (cute former work guy). We hadnt seen each other for most of March because he was studying for his architecture test. He passed part of his test, missed three questions on the other part, and will have to retake it. We’ve had to reschedule plans three times lately for a variety of reasons, two coming from him (the one from me was weather related). This time I got a guarantee of no rescheduling or cancellation from him.
This morning I got an apologetic email. He has to reschedule tonight to next week. His mother reminded him they had Phantom of the Opera tickets tonight. She didnt remind him until late last night.
How should I feel about this? We’re just friends, nothing more. And when we’re together there is no indication that he feels forced or obligated to continue our friendship or spend time with me. In fact, he’s mentioned lately that he loves that he can open up and be real with me, that its refreshing not to have strings attached to that He’s also a little scatterbrained, like most Math-minded people I know, when it comes to planning and making sure he doesnt double book dates or times.
But my wonky ass brain is screaming “he doesnt like you and is looking for ways out of spending time with you”. I’m trying to shut that shit down but its hard. What do you guys think? Would your brain go to the same place?
