online conversation w/ female friend who invited a guy on tuesday to a movie tonight and was alarmed when he waited three days to accept. still wants to go, but...
her: but i don't want him to think that my only plan for tonight was to go and see a film alone
even though it is true
also i'm sort of annoyed that he took so long
me: as would i be
bring a friend along, then, so it doesnt seem as if you were to go alone
no friend will go
me: i would offer, but i'm going to see a film alone
