Guess who emailed again today? Oy.
I know the "best" thing to do is just not respond. To vanish. I know that's what would be in my best interest. But...oh, I just can't. I wouldn't feel right about it. He's just so eager, and doesn't seem like a bad guy, just one who can't control his impulses. To stop now would seem so...mean.

But I also couldn't let things go on like this. I let Eager know--as tactfully as I could--that he was coming on too strong. Eager replied something very sweet. Honestly, if he'd just cut his emails in half I wouldn't be so wary. I let him know I would return his phone message when I was able, and I will hope he doesn't contact me again before then. So that's where we are with that.

Trust me, if it comes to a date, it will be in my neighborhood and somewhere very populated. Perhaps even a place where I know the bartenders in case I need to send an S.O.S. If nothing else, I may have to work out a plan with a girlfriend to call me in the middle of the date with an "emergency."

I'm seeing Best Friend tonight for the first time in ages!! Exciting. It'll have to be an early night, though, because I've gotta get home to bake cookies for the Shrink. Ha. The life of a single Jewish NYC girl during the holidays--of course that would include cookies for the shrink! :-) Actually, I'm seeing him about once a month now, and I'm not sure I have much to talk about. Still, whenever I do start seeing a dude(s) again, I think it'll help to have him around. So count me as mostly well-adjusted, with a possibility of spazzing in the future.

Seriously, please drop Eager, he is wayyy too eager bordering on stalker!

Don't meet him. I met someone I called eager beaver in person (thru eH) who had been over-zealous, not as frequently, but over a long period of time. He was nice on the phone, I thought no problem. I told him it was too much, in person he planned our next 18 dates and I told him it made me uncomfortable. I politely declined date 2. And he kept texting me...still! It's annoying. I should have gone with gut not to meet him, even though he was nice. He thought we totally "hit it off",--I was like "HUH"!?!

LOL! I don't think you'll be spazzing too much, you seem to have things under control these days!!

Good job with eager beaver! :) Hopefully he gets the hint!
