Chances are you call on Friday to hang out on Friday/Saturday and she'll already have plans. You should've said "I'm calling you to see if you want to grab drinks on Friday, I'll be at blah blah with some people/or we can go to blah blah they have great wine and a nice view/or blah blah". Point is, your call was worthless because you called to make a plan to call to make plans.
Peanut Gallery - I'll repost pic from the office tomorrow. It's worth it.
Correct, he didn't make a date he made a date to make a date. Pointless.
terrible threak. OP, unless you had some sexy times with her this weekend, move on. Plenty of gals out there. You're a lawyer, presumably making good money and in a leadership position. Grow a pair and stop being a pushover. Unless this gal has given up and is ready to settle for a nice guy (she's getting older), there has been no signs that she's romantically interested in you.
The guy just dumped her, that's all. Show me a good looking woman and I'll show you a guy who's tired of fucking her.
OP, you occasionally have these bad boy-isms, you should be channeling this... but you revert to things like asking her to lunch, hanging out with her in the middle of the day, waiting for phone calls and shit
