Our Love Story {Part 2}

 

This part of the story can be summed up in 3 little words.

He. Didn’t. Call.

So don’t waste your time reading further. That’s the story folks.

Why are you still reading? Waiting for me to share the complete and total mortification of waiting by the phone night after night?

That’s a bit evil.

But I got you.

If you need to remind yourself of the blind date that comprises part 1 of the story you’ll find that here.

To sum up: He’s cute, funny and mature and I’m in love.

Shall we go to 17 year old Rachel’s journal to see what happened next? Go’on then.

Stevie hasn’t phoned! I don’t know if he even has my number yet - Paul said he’d give it to him. But if he liked me and wanted to phone me he surely would just ask Paul for my number. So he obviously isn’t that bothered.  I name other boys who were “madly in love” with me and definitely did call.   But Stevie was just a date. The last thing he said was “I'll see you again? Hopefully soon?” That’s gotta be an “I want to see you again” Why would he say that then not call - maybe he’s going for casual, cool, standoffish. Whatever.

This is but a small glimpse of the level of date analysis that happened. What did it mean when he said that or looked at me this way;
and on and on and on and on…

Any other experience with boys I had had up until that point was them thinking I was perfect and amazing and stopping just short of telling me they’d die for me. It was all very intense and romantic

and hormone-fuelled.

Watch me swing between rage, love and sadness for the next few days (weeks)

Today I tried not to think about Stevie - I tried not to think about him first period when Elspeth demanded every detail about the date…

And guess what? No phone call from Steven. Well, at least confusion is over - he obviously isn’t that interested in me. No respecting guy who actually wants to see the girl again leaves it this late. And you know maybe Paul hasn’t given him my number but if he wanted it he could have phoned Paul & got it. Never mind eh, he probably thinks I’m too young for him or whatever.

I was, I mean I am still feeling a bit down, but it’s quite unexplainable. I was excited about what Stevie & I could have but I can’t be this down just because he didn’t call or whatever.

Heart. Broken.

Yes, it’s possible I was going in a bit heavy.
So I may have put a WEE bit too much emphasis on this one blind date.
And maybe I was more intense than was necessary.

But Rachel! You’re married! He must have called eventually right?

Riiiiiiiiiight?

Tune in next time to find out how the heck it recovers from this utter disaster.
