11 Hours!!!! The amount of sleep I got last night! Completely unheard of with my life and freaking amazing all at the same time! Safe to say I’m fully recovered from Vegas, now to just unpack.
Heyyyy Wednesday, I’m coming for you!
I really need a sexual best friend!!! lovelifethemost has one and I’m truly missing out! He just put $500 down her shirt! (Her Vegas cash for the weekend so she doesn’t have to stop at the bank tomorrow—what a considerate hubs)
BACK UP: Peanut was reading through my match account and our convo went like this…
Peanut: What?!? You’re looking for your best friend? Are you replacing me?
Me: My sexual best friend!
Peanut to her other half: You’re my sexual best friend!
Alright, Alright, Alright (think Mr. McConaughey) I’m late updating on my dates from last week. If you remember I had three from Wed-Fri. Here’s the lowdown…Brace Yourselves
Wednesday Night with the Art Teacher:
As I was getting ready for drinks with Art Teacher I kept thinking how surprising it was that I felt so calm. HA! Ten minutes into me needing to leave the nerves set in. I was wreck!
Quick call to one of the bests-Miss C-(who has a ton of online dating experience before she landed her main man) she instructed me to hightail it to my kitchen and quickly take a shot of whatever alcohol I had. Naturally, I did and it actually helped. As I was driving over to the bar(which was just down the street) I kept talking to her and she reminded me that he was probably just as nervous as I was.Then it was SHOWTIME! Once I got there Art Teacher was waiting outside of the bar for me. We hugged hello, which was NOT as weird and awkward as I was expecting. Once inside, we both ordered some drinks and he spilled that he actually had been at the bar waiting for a bit. Conversation came pretty natural which was a plus. Art Teacher is definitely a bit shy; a bit of an introvert, one may say. Soon enough we were ordering our second round of drinks (paid for by a kind gentlemen seated at the bar—he actually bought a round for the whole bar, or so our waiter claimed). I made a conscious effort not to down this drink as I kept reminding myself that 1. I was driving and couldn’t get too tipsy and 2. Patti Stanger’s dating rule is—two drinks MAX. We talked everything from traveling to sports. All in all a really good date. Before I knew it, three hours had passed. We decided to call it a night then since he still had a ways to drive and it was work night after all! We hugged goodbye and went our separate ways, but not before he awkwardly asked if I “NEEDED” to be walked to my car! I assured Art Teacher that I was just parked across the street and I would be fine. Fast Forward ten minutes later and he sent me a text saying he had a great time and wanted to see me again! WINNING! Recap: A good first date that wasn’t too awkward, with a really different type of guy that I probably wouldn’t have considered dating otherwise.
Thursday Night with the Lawyer:
Going into this date, I knew we could at least laugh at the fact that I have issues and don’t know my own phone number. Since this date was right after work, I knew it was totes approps to snazz it up a bit compared to the date before that was at casual bar. Mr. Lawyer had suggested we meet at a restaurant downtown. Score! Another place very convienient for me to get too. I rode the lightrail this time around. Mr. Lawyer was already waiting outside when I arrived. Boy, oh, boy was I surprised when he stood up to greet me. In his profile he did say 5’8, but for some odd reason he seemed even shorter to me. This is typically never a problem for me since I’m a mere 5’4 on a good day, but for some reason it was weirding me out. Yes, I realize I’m a bit of a weirdo. Deal with it. ANYWAYS—we sat down and started to the customary chit chat—-“How was your day?” “Have you been here before?” We ordered some drinks and started talking about him. His office is just around the corner from the restaurant, so he talked about that for a bit. While conversation wen on, I began noticing that he seemed very uncomfortable or nervous. He kept playing with his dinner napkin and then spilled water down his shirt. I tried to make jokes out of it, since he had a playful personality, but it didn’t seem to help much. As we were talking about families, I asked if he had any upcoming trips coming up. He decided to let me know that he was planning on traveling a couple hours away for us to visit his father who is in rehab. Rehab, which was a choice given to him by his wife (Mr. Lawyer’s mother) off of a ultimatum. Rehab or Divorce.
Talk about AWKWARDNESSSSS! TMI, dude! He went into a lot more detail surrounding it which just made me very uncomfortable. Maybe it’s just me, but a bit heavy for a first date, no? Mr. Lawyer is also a lead singer in a band. He made many comments about his voice being the greatest of all time. Eventually, we finished our drinks and dinner and it was time for goodbye. Hugged goodbye and said it was nice to meet you. I knew that there would be no follow up text or second date, or at least I hoped. Turns out I was right and I’m A-OKAY with that.Recap: Decent date overall, but no real connection and just plain ol ehhhhh. You win some and you lose some.
Friday Night with Law School:
This was the date I was looking forward to the most. I had been talking to him all weekend long and hadn’t heard from him throughout the week, which I get, we’re all busy. Once I got home from the date with Mr. Lawyer, I decided to check in with Law School about our plans for Friday. You know what my text was met with?? SILENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And more silence Friday morning and Friday afternoon! Just for added measure, even more silence as I’m writing this post. Oh well. His loss. RECAP: Getting too eager to meet a someone might be a warning sign. Also when said “date” attends your rival school for grad school. I should of known!
All in all, my first string of dates from Match weren’t TOO bad. The whole thing just really reminds me of job interviewing—-Which I think I’m pretty good at. Just saying.
Here’s to more tales to come….
Simply obsessed with Snapchat right now—I may need a support group! I had the app about a year or so ago and found it incredibly useless, so I deleted it. I didn’t realize that my account was actually still active even though I had deleted the app, so through the past year, every now and then friends would always bring up why I never responded to their Snaps…..ummm because I don’t have an account! Well, I finally downloaded the app (for the third and FINAL time) this past weekend. Now, I can’t stop! Like my other past obsessions—-it’ll die down, but until then…….
Okay, DOS thoughts today—I’m a really bad blogger and haven’t updated on my dating adventures. Recap, tonight!!!!
