Multiple really good dates, great chemistry, and then suddenly nothing – not responding to my messages, nothing. Normally I’d let it go but I was interested enough in this guy to write him a decently-long email asking for an explanation.
A few days later he suddenly called me and said he read my email and still wanted to go out but had been busy. When I asked him what was up he finally – reluctantly – admitted that he was technically still married to someone (never told me he was married at all) and had to fly back to the state he lived in before in order to finalize the divorce.
Not at all nonsensical, but threw me for a loop. I was 23 at the time, he was 27, if he hadn’t admitted to it I’d never have expected him to have been married.
