He was tall, well built and handsome.
He once lived in London and with that in common we shared a nice conversation that lasted about 10 minutes.
I was warm, full of smiles, extremely friendly.
No I did not flirt with him. That is a fact I am certain of. Because just a few minutes before, when he unexpectedly knocked on the front door, he interrupted my make out session with the owner of the apartment we were in: his friend.
Both men walked me to my car. I was embarrassed at the idea of this stranger knowing what I was up to and the conversation the two might have in my absence. But I was also a little disappointed that my make out session had ended abruptly. Still I smiled and waved politely as I drove off.
A few days later I got a call from an unknown number. It was the tall, well built and handsome guy from the night before. He got my number from ‘our’ friend because it was obvious to him that I liked him. He then continued with the weirdest conversation I have perhaps ever had with someone. He insisted that we should be friends and that I verbally accept his friend request. It was strange but I didn’t want to be too impolite so I responded with
“Friendships are something that develop over time but you seem like a nice guy so we will see…”
I guess it was enough for him because he continued that if we were to be friends, I would have to promise never to call him after 10pm.
He is in fact a married man and his wife gets very jealous of his female friends and
always checks his phone when he is home.
At this point, it became obvious that something was wrong with this guy. But before I could get off the phone…
he got even weirder.
He wanted to give me fair warning that he “always sleeps with his female friends”
As you can imagine, I was pretty taken back. In hindsight I should have just hung up the phone but instead I tried to make it clear to him that I had no intentions of sleeping with him. He chuckled because he heard what I was saying but still wanted to let me know what ‘tends’ to happen.
But also, I couldn’t help but me astonished. I mean I have heard of ‘game’ and thought I had seen every play in the book but THIS one, I didn’t even see coming.
Needless to say, I hung up the phone.
But my question is, do women actually fall for that?
I can only assume it would not be in his playbook if it had not garnered him some level of success…
