I've concluded that I am pretty much over The Model.

I came to this conclusion when he texted to wish me a Happy Valentine's Day... on Saturday.

On Sunday (you know, when it was actually Valentine's Day) I decided to be gracious and write back to say Thank You (since, you know, I'm sure that's what I was supposed to do). A few text messages followed, and he told me to call him after my show. I said that I was probably going out with the cast afterwards, and he said "okay, get drunk and then call me."

I didn't get drunk. I went home, made some popcorn, put on my pajamas, and watched TV.

And had no desire to call him.

So I didn't.

Whatever spark there was when we first met has clearly been extinguished, at least on my end. I'm pretty sure we'll both survive. I know I will. The bottom line is that I think he is intrigued by me because I am unlike the other girls he's dated... yet he still wants/needs/expects me to behave like those other girls, which I am neither capable nor desirous of doing.

Which is precisely what I'll tell him if he calls me out on the fact that I am making no effort to get in contact with him; but I won't be initiating any sort of heart-to-heart on the subject. After all of one date, I don't think I exactly owe him any grand explanations... do you?

While we're on the subject, I did briefly meet another gentleman who sparked my interest, despite his sporting an ever-so-slightly-rodent-like mustache. He's got a bit of an Alessandro Nivola vibe going on, which can't possibly be a bad thing. Granted, I don't know if I'll ever see the guy again, but I certainly hope so. He's doing something (not sure what) at the theatre where my show is performing, so the possibility is definitely there.

For the time being, however, I've got more than enough on my plate to keep me occupied. It would take a lot to grab and maintain my attention in the midst of everything else that's going on--and on that count The Model, it seems, has failed to deliver.

1. I adore your new header!! SO CUTE!!

2. I'm glad you're being honest with yourself about how you feel...if you're not into it, you're just not. I have to learn to be that honest with myself and be ok with just letting go of something, anything that just wasn't.

I've been MIA from blogs for FOREVER so I have no idea the history on The Model. I will have to catch up soon!

I'm over my guy too...it seems we're on the same journey.
Here's to us!

I've been through the same situation a few years ago. In the end I found someone worthy. Just hang in there. You'll find the right guy who deserves you. Don't settle for anyone less.

Sometimes the spark we have at first is really just two conflicting personalities/styles that in the long run won't be sustainable. I know I have had this happen, and it is frustrating to realize that there is no depth after that spark. Boo!
