  • Reason to be annoyed?

    Okay, so a few weekends ago (like 2 or 3) I went to the roller rink with a few friends (emile, josh-em's boyfriend, amaris, and jim- josh and em's friend). We all had a good time. Took a few faceplants into the floor (damn those rollerblade breaks).

    Then the next weekend, we went to see a movie at the drive in (told you about that in a past post). Same group of people plus a few more (who's names I forgot). On the ride home there were too many to legaly fit into the car. So I (and 2 others) ended up on someones lap (not the same person of course). I wound up on Jim's lap.

    So anyway, like a week or so later, I get this IM from Em (and Josh is with he) asking me if I like Jim. The conversation was (and I actually dug through my IM history for this) and I asterisked her name to ya know, protect her privacy and all:

    ******* (6:32:55 PM): did you know jim is single?
    MerryBerryMoose (6:33:03 PM): yes.
    MerryBerryMoose (6:33:06 PM): why?
    MerryBerryMoose (6:33:11 PM): *raises eyebrow*
    ******* (6:33:24 PM): just thought ud like 2 no
    ******* (6:33:27 PM): :-D
    MerryBerryMoose (6:33:32 PM): >.>
    ******* (6:33:42 PM): so...
    ******* (6:33:53 PM): lol
    MerryBerryMoose (6:33:57 PM): lol
    MerryBerryMoose (6:34:00 PM): so...
    ******* (6:34:44 PM): josh wants 2 no if ur single...
    ******* (6:34:49 PM): :-)
    MerryBerryMoose (6:35:06 PM): b4 i answer, what's he gonna go and do?
    ******* (6:35:20 PM): um... :-D
    ******* (6:35:32 PM): nm
    ******* (6:35:34 PM): lol
    MerryBerryMoose (6:35:38 PM): yeah, i bet
    ******* (6:35:57 PM): lol, so... r u single he wants 2 no?

    That went on for an hour or so. And at one point Josh broke out his good vocabulary and said "ponder upon it"...

    Anyway, yesterday I was over at Em's house for a BBQ and there she goes asking me again. So I manage to pry out of her (actually I gave her an ultimate wedgie with her bathing suit--she ran like a headless chicken trying to dewedgiefy herself) that Jim told her and Josh that he likes me. I guess sitting on a semi-strangers lap makes an impression.

    Eiiiiither way. I am still under pressure to go out with him. Which is annoying.

    I mean, do I have the right to be miffed? It's not like I am saying I would NEVER go out with him. But I BARELY KNOW HIM. So I think it's unfair of her to be pushing this on me. And she really won't let up.

    Also, how would I explain my IC to him? I mean, he's going to wonder why I am always going to the bathroom. Although I was told he had/has some form of bone cancer, so he might be more sympathetic than I am thinking--I don't know if he still has it or not.

    I've only been in one other relationship. It was long distance lasted about a year and then it sort of died (the relationship not the person). So I am leery about dating. That and I hate when someone pushes someone or something on me.

    If you think the guy is cute what's the harm in one date? If you don't want to go then simply say no. That's what I'd tell my daughter anyway. You don't owe anyone a date just because they asked if you were available. It's totally up to you. Go with your gut because that gut feeling is right more often than it's wrong.

    ps...you don't have to tell him about the IC right away. Get to know him a little better first, and if he asks why you pee so much, just say you have a small bladder and leave it at that...or that you drank a lot of tea before you left the house!

      Gabby,
      I can see why you're annoyed. It seems that your friend is pushing this down your throat. I would say, you need to leave me alone about this, you're coming on a little too strong. Let me think about it and if I want to go out with him I'll let you know but don't bug me about it anymore until I bring it up please. I'm sure she's not trying to be annoying about it she just thinks it would be cute to set up two friends.

      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

        Well, I talked with him online for about an hour today. He seems very genuine and nice. Hell, he's the only guy I know who watches the anime show Sailor Moon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailor_Moon). It's a very girly show (which I happen to LOVE).

        Anyway. He asked about school (and why I wasn't in a public school). So decided what the hell, it's 9 at night. Why not tell him I have a painful bladder disorder (and that it's for the most part under control). He took it well. Wasn't obviously scared off. He told me he has Aplastic Anemia (sp?) and he had been in the hospital all of 5th grade. So he's pretty undersanding about being "sick". The topic was changed after our heath trouble exchange.

        Anywho. I'm off to bed.

          Well, any updates? Sounds like you had a really positive chat with him though! Wow, I guess he would understand about being sick...

          Hugs!

              I am going to the roller rink again (with the same group of people as last time) on Saturday I think. So I will make more of an effort to talk to him this time. I don't think I'd call it a date though.

              My mom has no opinion on me dating--at least not anymore. I went out with someone about 2 years ago (it lasted for a year). After that I swore off dating and my mom never brought it up again. Avoidence works weel for us

                I understand that relationships can be hard and sometimes very annoying but then again it is nice to have someone take care of you when you dont feel well. I think it would be a good idea maybe for you to try to get to know him. I dont think it's a date unless it's just the two of you going out alone. So no worries. Just have a blast and make sure you look extra cute! haha jk just be yourself and he will like you even more. Your a great girl and you deserve someone who will respect you. Have fun~!!
