Ok so since Sep 2011 I thought I became close to this sub lady and thought she could be a g/f to hang out with this summer. We exchanged numbers and ever since September we chatted for hours about our sub stories. But since the last day of school,I called constantly and I either left messages or the phone was busy. Anyway I figured she just went away to see her family. Well it turns out she called me yesterday. I did not pick up her call but decided to call back because for whatever reason I wanted to know whatever happened. I told her I was glad she called back and wondered why she never bothered to respond to my messages. Her answer was " oh because I was too busy. " Right there and then I realized she was not interested in taking our co worker relationship further. I was sort of annoyed because the only reason she was calling because school is starting again. I let her chat for like an hour in which I told her that since June i Was sick, and had a miserable summer. Now that I think back, I shouldn't of bothered to give her my summer recap but there I go again being too needy to bond with someone in my sub situation. At the end of our call all I said was "well thanks for calling and hopefully you will call back when YOU can" and she responded "Oh I will". Later on that day I figured who am I kidding, this woman just needs me for information and that's it. Why did I allow myself to chat with this person for an hour. I guess part of me needs to hear someone else who is miserable but a huge part of me is sick of it.

Has this ever happened to you?

She is a work friend. Leave it at that. Chit chat if she is around about whatever and seek friendships outside of work. Sorry your.summer sucked.

I met someone subbing and the only time I ever heard from her to get together was if the needed something. The one time she asked me to do something I was excited. The next message was asking, that since I was going to be with them anyway could I watch her kid later that day while the did something. Later I was "invited" to a party which she needed my help with setting up/getting things. I never actually got an invite or told what time it was until the day of the party because I was again helping get things. At that time I decided I was done. I will answer some texts, but never ones asking me to do things for her. I was sick of being used. I hadn't seen her since the party last summer, yet this summer here she was texting me again to help get ready for it again. I just ignored the message.

I haven't experienced this, but it sounds like you do not need her kind of energy.
