If dating were a comic book, this would be one of the villains:
Alias: Mr. Hot & Heavy
Disguise: He's the perfect guy, & he likes me. In fact, he's so perfect that I do the aloof thing while I hang back & watch for his fatal flaw to reveal itself. Mostly because I just really like the word aloof. He is characterized by his obsessive phone calls, dates, text messages & emails. He says all the right things & he MUST be different, he's always trying to be around me, that means that he likes me! He acts like he can't live without me.
Evil Powers: As soon as I stop the aloofness, he stops the obsessiveness. Suddenly, he's very busy. His cell phone fell in the toilet. Something came up at work. He developed a case of adult onset relationship claustrophobia. (Not a medical term, but it should be)
If I make the mistake of returning one of his phone calls, he needs more space. He is so powerful that I hang in there, thinking he will return to his previous interest in me. Until I decide I've had enough. Once again, the cybernetic powers enter & BAHM! He knows that I know that he's a jerk. Then all of the sweetness & obsessiveness kicks back in.
Defense: Act like you are really into him. Bake him cookies, call him & ask about his day. Leave a notebook around with doodles of your name with his last name attached. Watch him fade away.
Beware of the Cybernetic Wizard of Thoughts.
Random End of Post Stuff:
This weeks drawing at Random Acts of Bling is an amethyst & sterling pendant. It is very sparkly. Clicking on the picture should take you to the post to enter.
Here is a picture of all of the fires going on in Utah. My house is safe for now, but other's are not. The fires have been started by things as simple as sparks from someone's brakes. Some people in our county are being evacuated, I am not & shouldn't have to be. Our power has been going out a lot. Last night we finally got rain, combined with lots of lightning & wind. So if you could pray, or send happy thoughts, or do a rain dance for rain in Utah minus the lightning & wind, it would be much appreciated.
