Right now I’m in Las Vegas for the weekend and after braving an extremely bumpy fifty minute flight and the notoriously long airport taxi line.
I was supposed to meet a man for a night out on the town that I had met when I was in Laguna Beach for New Years, after I got settled, I text messaged him to let him know that “I was here in Vegas” and much to my surprise the text I got back from him was not a “hey, where are you, what time works for you, where would you like to meet?” but THIS …
”Come by at Monte Carlo.”
For me this was not the best approach to get me into bed or on a dinner date, especially since I barely know him, and to be told what to do… just did sit well with my gut also the hotel had a pretty major fire about three weeks ago.

So I sent him a text back asking…
“Didn’t that hotel burn down a few weeks back?”
Honestly, not to be harsh but after receiving his first text I really didn’t want to see him, not only was he telling me what to do, but he was staying at a hotel that recently had fire damage, the whole situation just felt uncomfortable, we are all different however for me, I just wasn’t feeling his vibe and it felt like a Bad Date waiting to happen, I would rather hit the town on my own.
Within minutes he got back to me with a simple…
I called him to talk live since I was uncomfortable with the idea of just blowing him off and by now I was completely turned off by his telling me what to do text message and also by his one word text’s, it just didn’t seem very chivalrous and any notions of a romantic night with him had completely gone up in smoke.
Moving right along here, when I called I got his voice mail, so I left a nice message, basically saying to have a great night and to keep in touch.
Right after I left the message,he sends me another text…
“Jenn..I just got my cell back (long story). Heading back to the Hard Rock I will call ASAP!”
So what I’m having a hard time understanding is how did he get my text messages and my call if he did not have his cell phone also why didn’t he just call?
But… I wasn’t going to put a whole lot of brain power into trying to figure it out I’m in Vegas and up for fun!
I hit the Mandalay Bay casino, played Blackjack for over two hours, won hundred’s of dollars, sat next to a cute guy that got my number, who knows, maybe we will hang out and he will understand the importance of being chivalrous?
