473. EVERYONE NEEDS TO LOOK GOOD ON PAPER


Everyone needs to look good on paper. Resumes for jobs. Biodatas for desi marriage. Rental applications for apartments. This is what I am thinking, as I have stopped breathing, dialing the broker back. He left a voicemail while I was out picking up dinner, $2 slice of cheese pizza, without my mobile phone. I never leave home without out – except today – when of course I am waiting for an important call.

“Hello,” he says. “Hi, it is Desi Girl – I am calling you back,” I say, words rush out of my mouth. Ever since I filled out the application I decided I really want this apartment and I was rather hoping that the universe and my landlord-to-be felt the same way.

“Good news,” he says. “You’re approved. They are letting you move in mid-month, just as you requested.” OMG. I am SO relieved for two reasons, one, I am no longer homeless, two, I realize there are some people who can do this, but I the packrat cannot move over night and it will take two weeks for me to move from one apartment to the other. Especially since now it is official, I have to sell everything but my desk, bed and dresser.

however i just read your previous response about him not walking you home or no dessert either.

I think you should emotionally detach yourself from this guy, because obviously he is not making a move on you.

He probably has some gal back home in England, or maybe he doesnt like you to that extent for whatever reason.

I take it he didn't try to hold your hand, nor wrap his arm around you.

I think maybe you should ignore him for a bit and just move on. I know you like the guy, but if he is not making a physical move on you or telling you how he is attracted to you then you are just wasting your time.

I know you mentioned that you like this guy alot but i think you "hoping" is not going to work any miracles.

Dear Explore!

Welcome and absolutely - I welcome everyone, even if you dont agree with me. If you get bored, take a break come back. I am writing because I enjoy it - and what you to too!

Well - it is a Junior One Bedroom, this means the "bedroom" has a window, a door that closes and no closet. No matter how you slice it, it is 312 square feet :)

Dear Vic -

Massively sorry for the delay - and you are SOOOOO right, waiting and hoping --- it would be less painful to get hit by a taxi cab ....

I know - this is a waste of time and effort - but eck, I like him ....
