So yesterday I send a text to a new guy that I've just started talking to on an OLD site. He responds promptly to my "How was your rainy Monday?" and asks me what I was doing. I jokingly refer to wishing I had some Spanish rice for dinner since he had said he made a "Kick Ass" Spanish rice. The dude responds with a "Spanish Rice? Why?" and I instantly know, I'm texting the WRONG Tim!! THIS Tim is someone with whom I had one date back in April. We talked about a second date, but it never materialized and after awhile we stopped communicating.

It gets better! I text, "Oh, I've got the wrong person" and he says "That's okay" and we continue talking about things that we had both had an interest in--namely music upcoming concerts etc. About 10 minute into the convo he writes, "I recently lost all my contact information on my phone. I thought I knew who this was, but I don't think you are who I thought you were. Who is this?"

I tell him who I am, where me met for a drink etc. And then type "Well, that makes us even because I had the wrong Tim!"

He was a good sport about it. He told me why he hadn't been in contact, he had kind of poofed, he had started dating someone else, but wasn't sure it was going forward...etc

Moral of this story: I will no longer be putting contact information in my phone as "Tim from Match" I will be more specific! Have already changed Tim two's contact name to something else!

Maybe from now on "Spanish Rice Tim"; "Likes the Beatles Rick"; "Drinks Too Much Dan"; you know--just to keep them all straight. There's probably an app for that--if not, someone should invent one.

I'd ditch the both of them.

I <ahem> am not at all fond of that name.

Who knew a name would one day be a dealbreaker for me?


Buzz- The word you are searching for is 'Space-Ranger.'
Woody- The word I'm searching for, I can't say, because there are Pre-school toys here.

That is too funny! If I was talking to guys who had the same name I'd call them "Jeff the 1st", "Jeff the 2nd", etc. All the chatter gets confusing!

So, are you talking to this Tim again?
