You probably don’t remember the conversation I had with my previous landlady regarding Little Red and Miss X. If not, go back and read her theory on how women get competitive when it comes to men. Well guess what? I definitely saw some of this last week.
Some of you may remember Bookworm whom I went out on a couple of dates with around the same time as Mischief. After two dates it was pretty clear that there wasn’t much attraction there though clearly a potential friendship. We elected to stay friends and meet up from time to time.
I didn’t fancy her then (and truth be told that dating fatigue was already set in) and she showed no sign of fancying me either. In subsequent conversations we both agreed that neither of us were in the right frame of mind for dating at the time.
Anyway, last week I met Bookworm for the first time in almost 3 months. The tone was friendly, we talked a lot and discussed our dating exploits. Though I feel open to the possibility of dating her again in the future, it isn’t even a remote possibility right now. She is a friend and that is that.
That doesn’t seem to be how Mirror Image viewed me meeting this friend for coffee. Her messages instantly became more flirty than they had before, making reference to “dragging me back to her cave” and also commented that she didn’t know I had a kinky side merely because I gave her permission to slap me over spoiling a TV show that we both like (when she hadn’t seen a recent episode). What a contrast from the obstacles she was putting up when we first started talking! Still conscious of the fact that I have an upcoming third date with Indiechick, I’m guessing she didn’t want to be forgotten.
I was reminded of my conversation with the landlady then and had to chuckle. I’ve had a bucket load of new subscribers in the year since that post so ladies this is for you again… are you competitive when it comes to men? Does a man’s potential dateability increase when you think you might have competition?
