Well here's the story. (She emailed me, and I didn't quite have the time to check my email so she called. But I asked her permission, and here's the email.)
Background story: She was dating a guy at work (big NO NO!) and he's leaving the company in a little while. She came to Singapore suddenly as her grandmother passed away; and she wasn't sure where the relationship was going. Initially he was more into her as she was into him.. but hey, time changes things and like the softies we women are; she eventually fell for him. And I told her so, while she was in Singapore and was having some problems with regards to his crazy way of being so self centered (from little things of not getting her a drink during lunch when he got himself one, to big things like not even bothering to say goodbye as she left the country).
Ok now for real, here's the story.
...Long story short he pretty much told me that he knows himself well enough to know that once he leaves at the end of august, he will be so engrossed in school that we probably wouldn't work out and he alluded tohis past relationships and how they experienced a similar doom and we were likely to follow the same path, especially since we would live about an hour from one another (long distance factor???!). I think he also mentioned something about how he could just picture if we were to try, he would just be a total jerk to me on the phone and he wouldn't beable to do stuff be cause school is so intense, blahblahblah. Clearly,I know that he just doesn't think that we are really worth trying for.And, someone is delirious or just plain stupid, b/c he figures that we can hang out, enjoy each others company before he leaves. We wereobviously going to have to have this conversation sometime soon, but Iguess he didn't expect that I would bring up now.
Obviously u can tell what my reaction to all of this was. I couldn'tbelieve that he was so
Oh AND injury upon insult, someone [the guy] had the nerve to email me yesterday to do something together or hang out or something, I don't know what he was thinking. I completely declined. I mentioned that he would still try to call me and ask me to hang out and stuff before he leaves, but I mean the day after?!!? Ridiculous. And now I have to see him day in and day out till the end of [the month]. Sigh. I think I'm doing alright though?
So yes. My reply? Will post it up in a few days. ;)
