After a few days of contacting new guys, and writing back to guys who had previously written to me, there are six new possibilities on the line. I use the expression “possibilities” very loosely – anyone who has tried internet dating probably knows that it’s easy to have a barrage of back-and-forth e-mails with a seemingly good connection, only to have the other person disappear on you.
For now, all these guys are still in the e-mail stage, with a few numbers exchanged – except Cute Dork, who I’m meeting for the first time this weekend. I’m using “Dork” in a positive way – he seems intelligent, in a nerdy kind of way. The kind of guy who would have just been a buddy in high school, but now I find quite attractive. But from our phone conversation, it also seemed like he teeters on the edge of socially awkward -- I’ll know more after our date. He’ll be Date #96 (for new readers, that means he’s the 96th guy I’ll have dated since my last serious relationship ended two and a half years ago).
Wow – 100 is just around the corner! The Century of Dating! Any suggestions on how to celebrate / observe this occasion?
Oh – UN is still in the picture. I’m seeing him as well this weekend, though it looks like we’ll only have a chance to have a daytime date. Not quite as sexy as nighttime, but still, a good opportunity to get to know him better.
Speaking of sexy – well, to be blunt – there’s been no “SexyTime” since This Guy back in May. And let’s just say, a girl* has her needs! (*rather, a 30-something woman) On one hand, I’d like to wait til there’s someone with whom it would be meaningful… on the other hand, I’m contemplating a fling. I don’t have a fling candidate right now… but I’m keeping my eyes open.
Who knows… maybe if things develop with UN in the coming weeks…
