I received an audio message from my Frenchie a few days after I sent a response to the 12 messages (collage) he sent me a couple of weeks back. (See “Ooooh la la!!! My Frenchie is back on track!“) It was about 5 minutes long. I was excited and curious about what he had to say this time. We haven’t talked from the time he sent the collage to the time I responded so you can just imagine my curiosity and excitement at that time.
He says, “We should make time to Skype or call each other.”… Um, Oooookay… I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that in the one year we’ve been “together” I only called him a couple of times. Yes, twice… Two… Dos… That was around the time of the Paris terrorist attack, Nov. 13, 2015, to be exact. I remember vividly how scared I was then… worried… anxious… terrified. I wanted to know how he was. But before and after that I have only texted him and left short audio or video messages from time to time in response to his messages.
I have explained to him from the get-go that I’m not the type who calls guys. He gets it. (At least he says he does.) I have set the same rules with Will. I mean, I do call but while we’re already having a conversation by text or audio, like, I go “are we going to talk on the phone or Skype?”, “Do you want me to call or you wanna call?”, That’s it. But I won’t call out of the blue. That’s just my thing. Call me weird, but whatever!
Anyway, going back to my story. He starts with asking how I was doing … hope I was ok, as well as my kids and saying thank you for my sweet messages… then he continues with “I couldn’t respond right away because you sent me a little bit deep message and I was a bit surprised.“. He says he was in shock.
He goes on… “it seems you didn’t listen to some of my vocal messages I sent you where I was talking about how I miss talking and meeting like we used to do. Of course sweetie, I miss this, too.” He starts rambling then he says firmly “This is not finished! Of course not! The messages I sent you, if you remember, I was asking you how we can reorganize our schedule to could meet again on Skype… ” He explains how he doesn’t understand where I was coming from when I left that message then he goes on… “I told you I was doing everything to could come to meet you in New York… we need to talk… there’s a lot of details. Let’s take a moment to call… you let me know, let’s find as soon as possible a moment to talk. “
I must have played his message 5 or 7 times. I thought it was kinda cute how he sounded worried about my message. I felt he misunderstood me. I thought that I was actually reassuring him that I was fine and he doesn’t have to apologize about how busy he is coz I’m very busy, too. But instead it appears that it struck him as if I was breaking up with him… like I wanted to end this.(And we’re not even in a relationship. Come on now! haha) And he made it very clear in this almost 5 minute audio that “No! This is not finished! Of course not!” LOL 😉
I was speechless. I just had to tell him not to worry… that I miss him, too… and that we’ll find time to talk one of these days… and that he’s too cute… LOL
and of course, I had to say that I’m not “finished” with him, too.
Not just yet, at least. 😉
