With any form of dating comes personal, erratic behavior. The types of things you do in order to portray that great version of yourself with just enough touches of the real you to not be completely fake. Things with PT have been particularly good in the personality area, as he seems grounded and not offended by political incorrectness, meaning there’s not much to hide. However, when it comes to human behavior, such as: sex, sleepovers, etc. I’m as crazy as ever.
It started after the first time we slept together. PT did ask me to spend the night, and I wanted to, but then he’d get a glimpse of what I’m like at night. No, I’m not worried about drooling on his pillow and waking up with bad breath, that’s going to happen either way.
“You must have had a busy day.”
Making the decision that night to go home I thought the following day I’d perhaps decided wrong. PT spent the next two days being far less communicative than he had been prior to the sex. Of course, my mind raced to the place where you assume the person has lost interest now they’ve seen you naked. It took another day before a very minor technology glitch proved this was all self-made stress when a message from iMessage on the computer didn’t make it to PT’s phone.
Later in the evening he sent a text, “You must have had a busy day.” Once I realized he never received the message and was just as anxious over being left hanging as I, it was a huge relief. Instead of thinking PT is the casual guy who can play off dating as no big deal I have the impression he may just be as high-strung on the idea.
