Ever have one of those WTF moments that make your head spin? I did today. Let me give you the backstory.
Monday night at Trivia, some new people joined us. One was a guy I'll call JB. He was friendly and we discovered we had a lot of mutual friends. He even went so far as to friend me on Facebook while we were sitting across the table from each other. On Tuesday, he started a Words with Friends game with me and started chatting with me. I hate chatting on WWF so I suggested we text instead. He carried on a text convo with me pretty much nonstop from then until today. Just friendly conversation. We got to talking about my jewelry business. He sent out a mass email to the entire student body at the University where he works promoting my stuff. Totally unexpected. I replied and said that was very sweet of him and that I appreciated it. Then he sends me this text:
Allison, I'm the kind of person who speaks what's on his mind and I like to be open with people. I've enjoyed our conversations lately a lot. You're a great person and friend to many. I don't want you take this the wrong way, because of those things. But, I'm not looking to date anyone at the moment. I would be honored to have you as a friend. I'd like to help you with your business dreams tho, that's for sure. I felt like I needed to put that out there for the both of us. I'm a real friendly person and it's just who I am.
Say what? Where did that come from? I told him I never assumed he was being anything but just friendly and I had no desire to date him. Please don't misconstrue my friendly nature as a crush.
I've decided I need a disclaimer at the end of all my texts.
DISCLAIMER: My friendly nature and incredible sense of humor in no way indicate a desire to sleep with you.
