Clearly, I fucked up

I sent Jaymie an email on Friday, per everyone’s advice:

Hope you got home okay last night. Just wanted to drop a note to say that I had a really good time last night. And not just because you used to have L+R on vinyl.

I hope we can get together again after I get back from my Wisconsin backwoods adventure.

m.

As of 2 PM Sunday, no reply.

I think that calling her is inappropriate at this point. I am guessing that she is having second thoughts about how things went. Good job.

  1. How could letting someone know you had a good time with them be a step in the wrong direction? If someone I went out with sent me that e-mail I would have been touched. Or are people still dumb enough to think that there’s a “2 day rule” before establishing contact after a first date? Whatever her deal, if she doesn’t respond, she’s clearly an idiot.

  3. Or she’s had a busy weekend and hasn’t gotten around to checking or replying to her email yet. Give her some time.

  4. Oh, I didn’t mean the email was a fuckup. I meant that I must have fucked up on the date.

  6. That’s what I was thinking, too. I don’t know if you know that she has a computer and internet at home, either…

  9. Ah… that makes more sense… (sorry, I had a rather late night and feel a little foggy today) but what makes even more sense is what your other friends said… maybe she’s just been busy, and since she knew you were going to be camping all weekend, she didn’t see a big rush to answer right away… don’t give up just yet.

  11. Yeah dude. You have absolutely no way of knowing how someone feels until they tell you. It would be a bad move to assume -anything- about how she took the date.

    Even though your title says “clearly,” It’s not clear at all what you did or how she took it. For all you know she got stabbed in a knife fight and is now in an ICU somewhere.

    I agree that it is inappropriate for you to call at this point. Wait some time, be patient, and we’ll reassess.

  14. me too…

    did you get back today?
    if so i’d call her tomorrow and see about setting up another date…she could have been busy, no internet at home, she may be traditional and expect you to call upon your return…there’s no way you can start thinking “fucked up” just yet…

  16. I believe it is now appropriate for me to call her – on Thursday I told her I’d call her when I returned, and I just got a reply email from her.

    Clearly I over-reacted 🙂

  17. its cause you’re a total drama queen 😛
