That McStiffy comment last night on Dancing With the Stars cracked me up. I think I'll start using that in everyday jargon.
So I'm not mad at the world today, you'll be happy to know. I'm still sore as all get out, and have big circle bruises on my back, but I manged to get some zzzzs so the world looks a little less bleak.
Back to the dating. I forgot to mention that these dates were a result of online dating. I know, I know. I HATE online dating, but I'm in a new town, and I figured it wouldn't hurt. Here's what I hate about it. Men that refer to women as "ladies" in their profile (there's a proper time to use the word, but always saying "I want a lady to . . ." or "hey ladies".) I hate people that send winks - what's up with that? Write a frickin' email. I hate when guys start talking about sexual things before I even meet them. ("I could turn you on by . . .") Dude, you don't even KNOW me. I don't like the fact that these guys will email you into perpetuity. Pick up the phone, or schedule a date.
But, as I mentioned, I had a good date and a not-so-good date this past weekend. I had to send an email to the not-so-good one, because he asked me out again, but he bored me to death the first time. But I really wanted the good date to stay interested. I have patience issues, and am not a big fan of all these rules about waiting a certain number of days to call, etc. Well, he send me an instant message yesterday - I didn't have to make that first move after the date - so I'm encouraged. That's a good thing, right? (Humor me here.) But now, is the ball in my court? Oh I just DON'T KNOW. My readers, what do you think? Should I straight out ask him to dinner? Sit back and see if he contacts me again? (But I don't want him to think I'm not interested) I'm thinking about telling him that I'd really like to see him again before he leaves for work (He tells me he'll be gone all next week.) and then let him "ask" for the date. Is that too forward. Argh!
I got this book from a friend of mine about female commitment-phobia. I think I have it. I date unavailable people, I set high standards. Who knew?
