So I met this really attractive brother (Vegetarian, brown-skin, big brown eyes, beautifully-groomed locks, and full lips) who manages a vegetarian restaurant that I frequent in Washington, DC. For the three years that I've known him and spent money in his restaurant, he has shown me great interest, requested my telephone number on several occasions, and we have even talked about his son regularly (in the restaurant). Even today, as soon as I enter the restaurant, this brother literally rushes over to greet me and talk to me while seemingly ignoring all other customers. I should also mention that during this three-year time period that I've known him, we have exchanged numbers twice so far. Both exchanges led us nowhere.
Now here comes the really wierd part:
Despite these exchanges leading us nowhere, each and every time that he sees me in the restaurant, he says enthusiastically, "Are you doing anything this weekend??? Maybe I'll give you a call." I say, "Great! I'm looking forward to it!" But he doesn't do it. And whenever I call him, he tells me that he is "out right now" and that he'll have to call me when he gets in the house." But he doesn't do it. And this back and forth goes on for awhile until it starts up again months later. At this juncture, I'm wondering why would someone who seems this much interested in another person not want to talk to the person "off-duty" so to speak. I am also wondering if perhaps the brother has a serious mental illness of some kind, or is really forgetful.
Sistas, what do you think about this guy? I've already written him off as a loser, but based on the information that I've shared, what do you think about the situation?
