Generally his texts are random “Hello. What’s up?” kinds of things or just things he feels he has to share with me throughout his day. Like I said, I pretty much don’t respond to anything other than direct questions now. Well over the Thanksgiving weekend, he asked me to do things with him several times – dinner, take the kids (mine) bowling, just hang out and watch a movie, etc. I said no thanks every time for the obvious reasons.
Sunday morning he asked again if I wanted to take the kids to Cracker Barrel, his treat. I said a polite no thanks and he came back and said “When are you ever going to stop saying no to me?” I said when and if I ever felt like things had actually changed. He didn’t respond for a while and I went merrily on to the gym.
A few hours later Coach sent a text saying he didn’t understand why I was being so difficult and that it’s not like our break up was his fault. I knew he was kidding, trying to get me riled up to engage with him and unfortunately it worked. I sent back a fast “Fuck you” text and then Coach bombarded me with apologetic texts for the next two hours. I ignored them and eventually the texts turned from “I’m sorry I was just kidding” to texts about him doing Christmas shopping.
I read the card and threw it in the trash. Good lord I want him out of my town!
