I must get more selective in my screening process.
“Eh” and I had a few brief e-mails and a decent (but short) phone conversation before tonight’s date. During the date, we mostly struggled for conversation, seemingly waiting for the polite time of exactly one hour to pass before calling it a night. When we said goodbye, there was no pretense of seeing each other again – just a simple, “nice to meet you!”.
Coming up: another date with Sexy Dork – tho after the last date, I’m not sure if I feeling the “sexiness” from him that much. I’m on the fence about him as a potential boyfriend, but I like him as a person – he’s very sweet, smart and has a great personality. After tonight’s stilted conversation and general first-date-ness with Eh, I’m looking forward to the familiarity of Sexy Dork (or maybe just … “Dork”?). At the very least, we always seem to have plenty to talk about.
The most exciting part of my day: I got an e-mail from Witty Banter. (granted – this was in response to my e-mail to him yesterday, in a “hey, you never know” moment) To re-cap: WB and I had one date a few months ago, after a great e-mail / phone connection – I thought the date went swimmingly well. We exchanged a few e-mails after that, but one of us was always out of town, or buried under work.
I just couldn’t stop thinking about him – it had seemed that we’d had a great connection as well as lots of the same interests. Admittedly, he was my complete “good on paper” kind of guy.
My e-mail to him yesterday was breezy and nonchalant – I was very happy that in his response he suggested getting together. I’m trying to be logical – if he was really into me, he could have found time to contact me a while ago. So we’ll see if there’s another date – no expectations. Or at least trying not to have any expectations.
