Is this a red flag, or just weird?

JeanInWaApril 29, 2006

I sent a rather open invitation to someone I'd met and gone out with once to join me for an Arts Walk and parade in a nearby town. He sounded enthusiastic, he wanted to see me again.

He called me last night, and said he really didn't want to do the Arts Walk, just the parade, so he would meet me there. So, instead of having company, I'll be doing the Arts Walk by myself......doesn't that sound like fun??? But, first, could I call him around noon to WAKE HIM UP! I think he thinks I'm his mom.

I said I would, but now I'm rethinking this whole thing.

He's 42 and never been married.

What do you think?

I'd push him in front of the first marching band that walks by!

Kidding aside - I think your red flags are well deserved. He does sound like a mommas boy. Call and wake him up? Pleezee...

I agree - the walk part together with someone is half the fun!

Find a girlfriend to go with. I bet you'll have a much better time.

Wierd and red-flag...42-year-old with social acumen of 13. How're you going to have any fun with that?

OMG...he called my cell while I was on the WAY and said he wasn't going to make it.

Then, he called when I was on the way home, and asked if I wanted to see a movie. OK, well, I was driving right by there, and what the heck..I wanted to see the movie. I waited 10 minutes AFTER the movie started, and freakin left. I called him when I got home...and he was still at home! He wanted to know if I wanted to see a later movie, and I said NO...I was DONE.
And, I AM.

Good for you Jean. Had enough of his antics and being jerked around. There are nice and respectful guys out there. Regardless of this is a guy or girl, it's still disrespectful of you and your time.

Good job! Guess that explains why he is still single, and always will be!

I have learned that the guys who have never been married need to be left that way .............there are reasons, and on the way to learning that, you might have to go through some very painful lessons. I certainnly have. Good job, Jean!!!!!!!

I would have done the arts walk just to keep you company.... that said, I find it sexy to get a wake-up call from my GF. It's the next best thing to waking up with her beside me.
