A few weeks has gone by since we wrote, because all three of us ended up getting sick, one after the other, which took us out of commission for a while, each of us having to work while being sick so it took longer to get better. Wifey and I rarely ever get sick, so when K gave us this cold or bug it had to have been a bad one if we all got it! I had to go on two different antibiotics to end up getting better.
During this time Wifey was chatting a good bit with a potential “girlfriend” as we are still searching for a good special friend for Wifey. It seemed like there was potential for something there, and she and Wifey even met up without K and I for dinner one night. This time I stayed in the background, not chatting with the person, letting them forge a friendship first, hoping that if I wasn’t interacting as early on it would lessen the risk that the person would be using Wifey to get to me.
After their dinner out together, they made plans for her to come over to our home for a Saturday night, and all of us were going to hang out, have dinner and take it from there. Everything seemed good right up until that day, when a few hours before she was to arrive it went downhill. Meanwhile I did not know this, so I had gone to a fantastic BBQ joint and gotten 3 racks of smoked ribs, stopped and got the beverage of choice for this person, and came home from an afternoon out and made two homemade pies for dessert along with some corn cake to go with the ribs. I wanted to make it nice for Wifey and her friend.
In the afternoon Wifey had texted her and asked if she was excited, and the answer was “probably not as excited as you”, which I thought was rude as fuck! There is a time and place for honesty, but then there comes to just being rude and saying things that aren’t necessary. If this person wasn’t feeling it anymore, there are nicer ways to say so. After that more excuses ensued, trying to get out of coming this day and come the next day, and Wifey ended up getting frustrated with being jerked around and told her to forget everything.
Wifey tried to pretend she wasn’t disappointed, but of course she was. That feeling when you are hitting it off with someone and expecting something to happen, and then it turns to shit, doesn’t feel good at all! I of course was not pleased my precious Wifey got treated this way. This is going to be a hard search, much harder than a dominant female looking for a guy. I can only hope that one day we get lucky and find a great fit for Wifey, like we were able to do with K. I know it gets disppointing for Wifey, but we love her and want her to be happy.
There is one thing I will not stand for and that is anyone mistreating my Wifey. When the right friend comes along we will know it. Until then we will keep looking! We all enjoyed a fantastic rib dinner two nights in a row, and life goes on!
