Well this is interesting. Instead of responding to the email I sent a little over 24 hours ago, Dr. Froggy has been surfing the matrimonial website. Something he is completely entitled to do. However, I think, from a Miss Manners point of view, he should have said SOMETHING, ANYTHING to me. I even gave him the out. I mean really, if he wants to move, it is fine with me. But I would like to have an adult conversation with him at least once. One that did not involve his car, money or house.
Sidebar: Are you wondering how I know that Dr. Froggy has been on the matrimonial site? No I am not an online stalker. I am not techie enough to do that. I know this because the matrimonial site has some Big Desi Brother elements to it. For one thing it tells you the last time someone logged on. On Dr. Froggy’s page it is showing today’s date stamp.
This means that Dr. Froggy has been on the site, and probably online checking email in the last eight hours. So he probably has seen my email. And you know what? I think some of why I held onto Dr. Froggy was because he was not like Town and Country. But I do firmly feel that if Town and Country knew what I was going through with Dad, he’d have the emotional wherewithal to send a text that says, “You okay?” Town and Country may be an ass, but he’s an ass differently than Dr. Froggy.
I groan loudly, thankful to be at work alone, and go through my online profile. I find my “accept contacts” and locate Dr. Froggy’s profile. I slowly read it. I debate sending him a note, an explanation – one he really doesn’t deserve – detailing why. Instead, I hit the “decline interest” button. And just like that I am absolutely and completely single again.
For a change, I don't feel like the sky is falling. I feel relieved.
