Well, it’s been a couple of weeks since I decided to give Ash another chance. We haven’t met in person yet (that’s going to happen sometime in the next few days) but at least he’s been reliable in text conversation. I think there’s only been one or two days since agreeing to this that he hasn’t texted me.
Unfortunately, he’s been skirting that line, about to cross into needy-fucking-bitch.
I’m trying very hard to be patient with him. I mean hell, the guy’s been waiting for me for four years. I can imagine he’s excited (and perhaps a bit anxious) to be mine. I can definitely understand that.
The problem, though, is that he’s starting to get on kazander’s nerves. The near-constant texts asking if I can talk and then whining when I can’t are starting to annoy him. I really, really want kazander to not hate this arrangement. And so far, Ash hasn’t made that easy.
Now, in his defense, I will say that he’s toned it down a bit after I got a bit mean with him. After whining about how rarely I have time to spend all damn day texting him (I’m not a fan of big long text conversations anyway), I reminded him that I have a life and he is not the center of my universe. Since then, he’s been a bit better.
And I told kazander that I think things will get much better once ash and I actually meet. He’s just eager and overly enthusiastic now. Once everything gets started (I’m still half-expecting him to flake on me again) I think he’ll calm down.
