Friend Boy Update

After 4 days of becoming increasingly more frustrated with FB, I finally got to talk to him. He did call me yesterday, but I followed Melissa's advice, and didn't answer. He left me a message saying that he saw he missed "several" of my calls (I only called him like 3 times in 3 days) and that things had been really hectic at work. So I tried calling him back a few hours later. No answer. Then I sent him a text that said, "You sure do know how to frustrate me (insert full name here)!" No response.
Then just now, he called. And I picked up. He actually sounded really...sorry, and worn out, and stressed! He just started a new job on Monday, and apparently to test him, they gave him 2 really huge projects right off the bat, and he said he's been falling behind in school, and with everything going on, he just hasn't had time to return anyone's calls because all he wants to do in his spare time is sleep.
"I really am sorry... I just don't want you to think I'm a shady bastard." he said.
I couldn't help but laugh. "Yea, I was starting to wonder about you..."
"Well, I'm sure my friends can vouch for me; I'm not like that. It's really just been a crazy week."

We don't have any plans for the immediate future as of now. He said he wants to get caught up on all his work, and his rest and then he'll be able to hang out and stuff. I told him I have off this Saturday and we're gonna be going out and that he should try to come. I might switch with Mark though, and work Saturday night instead of Friday night. So who knows... But I'm glad he's not intentionally blowing me off.
And as for me sleeping with him, I don't regret it. Maybe it was a little soon, but there's just something about FB...he's very genuine. And I could tell that about him from the moment I met him. And maybe it is a fault of mine for being so trusting, but in this case, I don't think it was a mistake. Because so far, he's proven to be mature, responsible, and caring. And I think he really does like me! So perhaps it's worth all the drama of waiting. At least he has a career and has his shit together. I can't hold that against him. ((Sigh))
Well, I just wanted to update you guys. Thanks for the comments though, keep 'em comin!

i'm so glad things are working out with friend boy. i don't think you should regret sleeping with him either. if the moment's right, the moment's right. and it's not always about sleeping together too soon.
hope you get to see him this weekend. :)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he calls you and meets you out this weekend. But a word of advice... don't call him, let him call you. I know he seems genuine and a really good guy. But so did the last guy I dated. For about 3 weeks. I too slept with him a little too soon... and then after that he was suddenly "super busy" with work.

I HOPE I'm wrong, but it won't hurt to play coy either and let him call you. :-)

Haha, are all guys like this, k? That's exactly what happened to me with a guy a dated a little while ago. Men suck. I would totally become a lesbian if I could :-)

I hope that he is being honest with you.. and not just being a "nice guy" letting you down easy. I am hoping for the best for you... but be careful.

I hope all guys aren't like this! I'm 37 and still holding out hope that there are some nice guys left! And don't think i haven't considered switching sides! ;-)
