Before going out last night with the dentist I decided that if he didn't make a move, I would. But after our date I think I have decided to say sayonara to the dentist for good.
Last night we went to Mattito’s in Uptown for some margaritas and Tex-Mex. We then went to a “casual social” for his graduate school at one of my favorite bars, the Katy Trail Ice House. Before this point I was curious to see how he would introduce me… either as the girl he was seeing or just his friend.
To my surprise he introduced me as first his friend, then one of his friends asked if we were together and he said yes. This progressed to him eventually calling me his girlfriend during introductions.
I mean don’t get me wrong here… being called someone’s girlfriend is great and all, but we had never even had that talk much less acted like we liked each other, other than a little flirtatious interaction here and there. To introduce someone as your girlfriend without kissing her, holding her hand or even having a DTR… Is a little weird, right?
By the end of the night I was so confused that I had lost all desire to make the first move. But I think I figured it out. Or rather him out.
You see, earlier on one of our dates he had mentioned the fact that he was on the dating website because of a bet or a dare. I asked him then if he was continuing to see me because of that bet/dare and he said no, that he really liked me and enjoyed our conversation. He did mention that night that he was looking for a girlfriend and that he often times felt lonely at his graduate school socials because everyone else had their wives or girlfriends with him.
So fast forward to last night… We dated for a little over a month before he introduced me to his friends, but what started as a bet turned into something that felt more like it was for show and was to boost his ego rather than something that was tangible and real.
Needless to say, I’m not going to go out with him again.
It was fun while it lasted, but I need someone who has more confidence than you.
