Today, while taking a two minute study break on Facebook, I discovered a possible reason that (my "friend" slash compulsive emailer) Charlie hasn't called to reschedule our lunch date.
Charlie's Current FB Status: At it again...
Followup Comment from Womanfriend: Writing me back?
Followup Comment from Different Womanfriend: Me too!
Oh, goodness. Really, women?
I almost left a third comment of my own saying, "Damn, Charlie. How many email girlfriends do you have? I thought I was the only one!"
Except, as we all know, that might be a little too close to reality to be funny. It would also stroke our favorite player's ego in a way that really wouldn't be healthy for anyone involved. The last thing that Charlie needs is to have three women enlisting public pleas for his affection via Facebook.
And now, my professional advice for all parties involved:
Charlie: It is definitely impressive that you can keep up with so many email conversations, but don't flaunt it on Facebook. It's tacky and is going to perpetuate your cycle of singleness. Random Womenfriends: Stop leaving obsequious comments that show that you are not only compulsively refreshing your email, but also, stalking this man on Facebook. It makes you look desperate. Red Stethoscope: Good job cutting this one loose. The smack talk emails were fun, but imagine how hurtful this situation would be if you actually started developing feelings. (Yes, I just spoke to myself in third person. Listen, studying alone for 8-10 hours a day is bound to make any normal person a little bit crazy.)
Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
