What would you make of it if a person you'd just started seeing posted a link to this on facebook and underneath written 'I know the feeling?'

Sorry. can't do links!

What is it?

RiotsNotDiets Sat 22-Jun-13 23:54:35

Has he recently got out of a relationship?

MalcolmTuckersMum Sat 22-Jun-13 23:55:12

Don't click links - what is it?

dontcallmehon Sat 22-Jun-13 23:58:30

It's the Luminites singing 'To love somebody.' No he hasn't been in a relationship recently.

dontcallmehon Sat 22-Jun-13 23:58:54

Off Britain's Got Talent, forgot to say.

a modern cover of 'to love somebody' by the BeeGees

RiotsNotDiets Sun 23-Jun-13 00:00:00

I'd assume it was about me(you) then and tbh I'd be a bit creeped out if you've only just started seeing each other

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 00:01:06

That's what I thought.

ChippingInWiredOnCoffee Sun 23-Jun-13 00:01:12

That you are always on his mind smile Sounds sweet.

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 00:02:00

He is sweet.

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 20:10:45

Well - don't I feel an idiot. He posted something today calling someone a c**t (don't like that word) and in the comments it transpired that he was referring to a girl who had let him on and crushed him. I texted him to see what was up (v casually) and it turns out he had feelings for a girl, who told him nothing would ever happen, but she'd also lied to people saying they'd slept together. And he still wants to meet me next weekend confused. So she's obviously who the song was about.

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 20:13:08

*led him on - that should say

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow Sun 23-Jun-13 20:14:25

ah don't feel like an idiot - just learn from it and move on!

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 20:17:58

I shouldn't even think about seeing him again, should I?

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 23-Jun-13 20:18:43

I don't think you're the idiot. He sounds awful!

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 23-Jun-13 20:22:15

No. There were so many things about your post that rang alarms I wouldn't know where to start. Lucky escape.

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 20:23:13

That kind of language used about a woman is a big red flag anyway I think.

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 23-Jun-13 20:25:19

Indeed. Onwards and upwards!

RiotsNotDiets Sun 23-Jun-13 20:25:38

Urgh what a pig, agree it is a lucky escape!

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 20:27:39

He's been texting me all week - everyday - so I'm v confused!

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 23-Jun-13 20:31:47

Why are you confused? You know what you have to do.

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 23-Jun-13 20:33:03

I'm sure he has been texting you everyday. He's been ditched by the woman he was trying to get with, whilst still seeing you!

dontcallmehon Sun 23-Jun-13 20:46:34

It's a bit humiliating really. It's only early days - so why did he bother with me at all? He did all the running too!

PamDooveOrangeJoof Sun 23-Jun-13 21:04:19

As a back up? Sorry to be blunt but he has declared his feelings about this other woman to all and sundry on Facebook - which is odd in itself - whilst chasing you at the same time. Only to call declare her a c**t, when it wasn't reciprocated.

This tells you all you need to know about him. Don't be the fall back for this dick head.
