As we continue to follow my crush/friend saga this is what all went down. I'm so fking confused right now. Does he or doesn't he want to be my friend?
Last you heard, Bus Driver called me last Friday night to apologize for not going out for his bday and him not calling me until two days later. In his voicemail he says "give me a call if you want to get a beer sometime next week"
I call him Monday night after class and leave a simple voicemail of "Hey it's Andrea, just seeing what's going on, give me a call back" He then texts me an hour later and says "Hey! Just got out of a school board meeting (no he isn't a baby daddy) Fun Stuff! I'll give you a holla later this week"
Ok cool. It's a Monday night. I'm thinking by Wednesday, Thursday or Friday he'd give me a "holla"
No holla came. So, I put on my big girl panties and decided to do something I hate to do. Text a guy once he says he will be in contact with me. But, I figured what the heck, I'm going for just friends here, so I can't be that annoying can I?
I text "Dude..It's Miller Time..holla back yo" Yes, I'm all gangsta and fun like that. That way it's an open invitation to drink some delicious Miller Lite, right?
I get this text back-
Bus Driver: In BRF
WHAT THE FK IS BRF? I call up my decoding buddy Louise and ask her. She has no clue what it is. I keep thinking, brief? Like he will call me back briefly? I turn to Google then because Google tells all. And holy crap Google answered my question.
BRF=Black River Falls.
Ooooooooh. The town he moved from. Ok that makes sense, but umm weren't you going to "holla" at me oh at the end of the week. It's Friday and you are 2 hours away.
A bit annoyed at this point after figuring out BRF, I text back "Ok nevermind"
I then dial my cousin Betsy to do the normal "what the heck is going on the Bus Driver!?!?" While dialing her, I get a text back from Bus Driver saying-
"Sorry dear....will be back on Sunday...."
WTF? Dear? Dear? You just called me dear. Dear to me is a kind of different word to use and to use to a girl you just blew off twice. And will be back on Sunday? Is that saying "you should call me Sunday and we can hang out" or "I'm gone till Sunday so don't bother calling me back the rest of the weekend" And again, he apologizes. I'M SO CONFUSED. Yes, I know, I'm just going for the friendship, but does this dude even want to be friends w/ me if he keeps blowing me off?
I then enlisted the advice of Betsy's fiance Jeremy and Ray.
Jeremy states: Leave him alone, he doesn't want you Andrea. Guys can't have girls as friends and he doesn't want anything to do w/ you. Don't waste your time, don't call him anymore.
And Ray says: Ehhh, I wouldn't call him anymore. I think he is just a flake like most guys and doesn't realize that he is ditching you.
But then Betsy brings up this tid bit. Bus Driver emailed Betsy's mom to get Betsy's contact info because Bus Driver says he wants to make some friends down here. Betsy also keeps saying she doesn't think he is that type of a guy to do that kind of stuff. He's not your typical guy.
So here lies where I'm confused. Does he or doesn't he want friend? Did Betsy and I spend our entire evening analyzing this whole friend situation. You betcha we did (we also talked about her crummy roommate and watched Project Runway). But come on!!!!!!!!!! Would you not think what the heck is up w/ this guy?
I know you are wondering why the heck I want to be friends w/ this guy, but really I would like to have some friends that actually live on my side of town, who are close to my age, who like to drink beer, who like sporting events. Yes, I have friends that do some of these things, but lately w/ me being the lone single chick, I'm either the 3rd wheel or begging my friends to do something. It's getting old. So maybe this is why I want this guy as a friend. I dunno. I'm just frustrated with everything right now.
