After going a couple years with no man giving me so much as the time of day, I finally kind of sort of maybe am dating a guy. We've gone out a couple times. I really like him.
Friday nights seem to be the night he prefers to go out. We haven't officially made plans for this Friday, but a friend called just now and wanted to make plans for Friday. I said I could go if I didn't have a date. It's not like I made plans with her and then broke them.
Well, she got really snide with me. She just got divorced (as in two weeks ago) and has absolutely no interest in having anything to do with men. I keep telling her, wait a couple years and you'll miss them! But she was really witchy about me putting a date ahead of this get-together. She also made a snide comment about his upcoming hernia surgery...
I have another friend, an avowed man-hater, who is the opposite of the spectrum. I had plans with her a while back, and Jason wanted to go on a date. I told him I couldn't b/c of my plans with her, and for various scheduling conflicts, he and I couldn't get together for a few more weeks. She absolutely insisted that in the future, I break plans with her to go on a date. Hence my current policy on the man comes first. As she sees it, she's always around but dates are hard to come by. I guess she just understands how important this is to me.
So, who's right?
