Jack-Hole, Party of One


A handsome man gave me his phone number last night.

Actually, he wrote it on my arm and added a smiley face underneath.

I feel sorry for his wife.

Seriously. I find myself losing hope in ever finding a good, honest, faithful man because of people like this.

I tried not to make a big deal out of it, but when he reminded me to not lose his number I pointed to his ring and said “I don’t think I’ll be using it.” Then he got embarrassed and tried to play it off and say he just wants to keep in touch with people down in our area (he was visiting for a couple days).

I felt a little awkward after that and tried to just be light and friendly, but as I was leaving he told me again to keep in touch and that he would love to come down alone one weekend so I could show him the city.

Yeah. That’s not happening.

I obviously Facebook stalked him when I got home and saw pictures of his beautiful wife and baby daughter. I hope, for their sake, that he is just totally clueless and inappropriately friendly, but I doubt it.

What makes married men run around on good women? I mean, I had barely met this guy and he was trying to hang out. It wasn’t as if we’d built any connection. Why is he so willing to potentially cause major damage to his family? Yuck. Just yuck.

I’m staying single.

    Tragic. Sorry, Angela. They aren’t all on the prowl…but what you described so well is just sad. Crazy… He’s playing with faire and will burn up his own life and his family
