Had a second date with Teen Crush, and I’m happy to say – there seems to be a mutual attraction there. Some drinks, some strolling, some smooching. Lots to talk about – not TMI, but he didn’t seem afraid to reveal a bit about himself. When he told me that he "felt lucky to have met a fun, beautiful woman”? I’m still smiling.
And best of all – before we said goodnight, he asked when we could see each other again. Plans are in place for this week, and I’m excited about spending more time with him. I’m bursting to divulge more about him (and the things I like about him), but since there’s always the fear of being “discovered”, I’ll have to leave it at that… for now.
Then there’s UN – we have plans tonight, but it looks like there will be no “talk”. He’s entertaining some out-of-town friends, and asked if was OK if they joined us – of course, I said yes. So, on one hand – he’s introducing me to friends, which is kind of a big deal – he could have easily just re-scheduled our night together. On the other hand? Now that I have this inevitable comparison to a guy who does indeed seem into me, UN’s slight standoffish-ness feels all the more apparent. But he really does have enough good qualities for me to want to keep dating him, at least for the time being.
The impulsive side of me would be happy to take down my Match profile and just date Teen Crush. The rational side of me has finally learned the value of taking it slowly (see: Smiles, July), keep my focus scattered… and play the old “wait and see” game.
