N had this to report to me this morning:
12 unanswered texts and 5 VMs consisting of the following... I would not give up. He was like the friggin' energizer bunny.
"N, listen I'm sorry I would still like to see u. I just have been really hurt many times and I just don't want to get hurt again... Can we still start from tonite? I want to trust you?"
"I'm sorry I had a panic attack... I just thought you might be seeing other guys please forgive me."
"When you told me it would be a week before I could see you again, I just thought you might be seeing other people. I'm sorry please forgive me. I overreacted I apologize. Can we just start fresh?"
"N I'm so sorry about my outburst... I guess I just got insecure. Can we talk about this? I'm sorry for my insolence?"
"I'm so sorry I overreacted... Can u give me a chance to make this up to you?... I am an impatient person sometimes... Please? OK I really screwed up. I apologize for what I said... Can u give me a chance? I promise u I won't make this mistake again. Can we still talk?"
"Hello? Why aren't you responding to my text messages?"
(At this point, I picked up the phone and left 5 VMs for N.)
(After N did not respond - because she is not crazy - my favorite text message of all...)
"Can I still see you Friday?"
