New To The “Game”

It’s been 3 months and 22 days since my (ex)-girlfriend and I parted ways. It was a wonderful breakup, which I won’t go into right now. I hope to write a script and make a short film about the experience as I believe it’s a very heartfelt breakup. She’s wonderful.

Anyway, I digress…

I’m new to the “game.” Let me be clear, I’m not looking for anyone at the moment. I don’t have any dating apps on my phone nor do I find myself actively talking to other ladies. I’m focused on my career¬†at this moment: from, to fun music videos, to late nights dreaming about when I’ll be out of debt.

I’m focused. I find myself working 70-80 hours per week and I LOVE IT!

However, I do want to share a blunder I recently made.

New To The Game

I met this well-read, humorous, fast-talking, articulate, beautiful – girl. She was attractive. I don’t know how we met, nor do I know how we fell deep into rapport. All I can say is that our conversation flowed like a glass of milk: smooth yet good for the bones.

The conversation went on for about 10 minutes when it strained off to the point where someone had to leave. However, we were so engaged with each other that neither of us wanted to leave each other sight. I got a sense that she wanted more and well, new to the game, I had no idea how to give her more. Then… this happened:

Her: You’re really fun to talk to –

Me: Same – I like you – we should hang out

Her: We should


Her: So… you want to get my number?

BOOM! She was giving me her number on a silver platter! I didn’t have to ask. She was right there, with a bright gorgeous smile on her face, telling me that I should get her number so we could meet again. You think this would be easy? You think I would respond with “YES WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER?!?!?” Well…

Me: Nah. I’m kind of busy. I don’t know. I’m all over the place.


I was shocked that came out of my mouth. What the hell was I thinking? I’m so confused. WHY DID I DO THAT? I try to recover…

Me: But you can get mine?

She did, but the mood died out. And, I know she will never text or call me…

Oh Jonathan.

Thanks for listening.
