A week ago, I went on a first and only date with a guy I'd matched on Tinder. On our date, we talked about our lives. He'd shared some of his difficulties so I thought, okay, let me also let my guard down and talk about the biggest thing that's happened so far in my life, right. Also I'd linked this site on my profile, so I assumed he'd have known at least the gist of it. I don't know how I put it or what it is I said that made my date ask, this man who was on a romantic date with me, he asked, why don't you get back with the guy? I'm not sure which part of my story didn't enter his consciousness, the fact that the guy is in a completely different country than I am, the fact that we aren't exactly on the best of terms and hadn't spoken for years until three weeks ago, the fact that I was on this date with said person I'm talking to. So anyway, this date and I decided we weren't exactly compatible and I put it at the back of my head, right. Then, yesterday, the guy in another country sent me a text. Brooooooooo! I asked him what was the matter, because I assumed that there was something the matter if he's texting me, and he said nothing was the matter, and asked "should there be?" I still don't know why he texted me. I don't know if he has a girlfriend. You would assume if a man is texting a girl he has history with, he would not have a girlfriend, or at least that is what I used to assume, but on @textsfromyourex on Instagram, loads of men who send texts to their exes, have girlfriends. So I dunno. I don't know what relationships mean to people living in LA/NY. Nor do I know if this guy actually has a girlfriend. Not that he's said or done anything strange, it's more the fact that he texted me that strikes me as strange. Will I ever understand men as a species? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
