His name is Michael. He’s a divorced engineer with two children (yeah, I know his business, but he’s the one who told me). He shows up to comedy night every other week at The Postmark Cafe. Sometimes we have some interesting, friendly conversations.
And then I message him on the Meetup message board, to say
Good to see you last night
the day after, and it’s like talking to my hearing-impaired father. The message just doesn’t get through. So I figure he was just talking to me to be polite, he doesn’t really like me. Until the next time I see him, when he acts like he never got my message (which I’m kinda pissed he didn’t respond to) and says
Good to see you again
like nothing happened, and shows me a cell phone pic of his kids dressed up for Easter.
So we had a nice chat tonight and I just don’t know. I don’t know if he wants to be friends, lovers, or if he just wants me to drive myself crazy trying to figure it out.
