Thomas:  she was sort of stand-offish, but cuddly
very affectionate, but kind of mean.
Me: Meow.
Thomas: haha

when we like patched things up she made sure we had sex again
it was weird.

Me: Who broke things off?
Thomas:we woke up one day after having drank heavily the night before and i went to take a shower an she stayed in my room, and when i came inshe had my computer pulled onto the bed an scrunched over it and was going thru my emails
and saw that i was on okcupid
meanwhile we’d only been seeing each other for about 3 weeks
so yes, i was, and we had never had any convos about being exclusive
and she freeeeeeeeaked out
and left
but i was sort of relieved
but then she invited me over to make up
and sort of apologize
Me: and then you had sex again?
Sent at 3:54 PM on Friday
Thomas: just that last time.
Me: and that was the end of the cat lady.
Thomas: yep.
