Dating Tips (not mine-lol)

I'm posting some dating tips I got from an email that was forwarded to me. I think some of the tips are good but some (okay one) is a lil far fetched. Well maybe I just don't have self control that's what. lol. But tell me what you think about these tips below. Maybe you agree or disagree. Let me know. If I end up dating anyone else new I may try to apply some of these tips and see where it lands me.

Dating Tips to Grow a Strong Relationship!

Pray – Before you even leave home to meet your date you need to spend time on your knees asking God to help you honor Him and your date. You can never go wrong with prayer. This will also put you in the proper mind-set for your time together.
Talk a lot – There’s no better way to get to know someone than by talking to them about a wide variety of topics. The more you talk, the more you will begin to know if this might be a relationship that you should pursue.
Let’s be friends! – This is an important dating tip to remember. Don’t forget that until you are married the person you are dating could be some one else’s future mate. When you begin dating someone there is a lot of pressure to move things along much too quickly. Choose to keep your relationship on a friendship level. The longer you can remain 'just friends', the better your relationship will be if you decide to get married at some point.
It's great being married to your best friend!
Pray in groups – What in the world does that mean? This sounds like an odd dating tip. What we’re suggesting is that you don’t pray together alone as a couple too early in your relationship. Prayer is so very important in any relationship so please don't misunderstand this point. When you pray with someone of the opposite sex that you care about you begin to build a level of intimacy that can often lead to trouble.
The goal in any Christian relationship is to honor God. Prayer is intimate communication with God and can draw couples together in ways not intended if you are not careful. It’s better to pray together when you are with other Christians. This will help keep the focus on God and not allow thoughts and emotions to wander to prohibited areas.
Choose to not kiss – At least until you are engaged to be married. Okay, this can be extremely difficult, but if you can follow this one dating tip then most of the others will happen naturally. Even kissing once you are engaged can be very dangerous. It’s better to not kiss at all until your wedding day! Before you laugh and click to another page with thoughts that we must be insane, consider these points on kissing.
A kiss begins to sexually stimulate a man (and woman) instantly.
If you aren’t kissing then you won’t become tempted to take things to a more intimate level. You’ll be protecting yourself and the purity of your date.
If a Christian man is kissing his date and it gives him an erection (often just the possibility of a kiss can do this), is God or his date being honored?
Is this healthy for the man to get sexually aroused time after time without sexual release? When men become sexually aroused a large amount of blood flows to the genitals. If ejaculation does not occur; the build up of blood can become painful. That just can't be a good thing for anyone! Ouch! :O)
A kiss will surely break down your barriers and leave you in a position that could ultimately devastate your relationship with your date and separate you from a close walk with God. Self-control seems to be the better option.
Just think how magical that first kiss will be if it is saved for your wedding day!
Include another couple – You will find that physical issues are much less distracting if you plan most of your dating situations to include other couples. Group dates can be a lot of fun and you’ll also be helping your friends maintain purity in their relationships as well.
Always treat each other with respect – If you respect the person you are with then you won’t say or do things that will intentionally hurt them. Ask yourself 'what would Jesus do?' and then do it!

Please don’t simply read these dating tips and then not try to apply any of them to your dating situations. Dating is a wonderful experience and should be enjoyed by both people in the relationship. If you came searching for these dating tips then you have a desire to honor your date and honor God with the choices you will make while dating.

Happy Dating...

So I'm sure you have heard the saying "too good to be true". Well that's how I feel about this situation. And I am a thinking person and so I always think the worst can happen and am surprised when it doesn't, especially when I think everything is going so swell. Is there such a thing as things really going perfect anyway? Even though there may not be it sure does seem close. And maybe its the beginning stages of dating someone you truly like. Its really great when that someone likes you back just the same. I can honestly say that in the last month I've been a lil more smiley and more easy going. Lol. Could it be that special someone? And why is that anyway? I know I was happy before he came along but I think an inner glow just seems to come out when a special someone is making you happy. Its a beautiful thing and a great feeling almost as if you're on cloud nine. Lol. Is there such a thing? Well if there is I'm going to enjoy it while I can. I can truly say I am happily dating. I can't wait for the next time we meet. : )

Sexual Dating...when????

So within the last two weeks I have posed a question to my friends. When you're dating someone when is the best time to have sex? I got a variety of answers from the first date to three months, even wait till marriage (I don't know about that-lol) or when the time is right. But how do you know when the time is right? Now I know that we are adults (at least we should be) but you still want to have some type of restraint. Don't you? I mean I would say do what you feel but at the same time I don't want the guy looking at me sideways plus been there done that. And I feel that as we mature things change. Sex isn't the same for me as it was a few years ago. I guess I'm just not into casual sex. It gets old and unforfilling. So then what do you do? Back to the same question because you can't bone EVERY guy you meet or date (at least I'd hope not-lol) but to each its own. So when is the best time? I read an article that says to wait at least a month and that sounds reasonable because by then you should have had a few dates and gotten to know the person a lil better. And the saying is true that sex is more emotional for women (at least some), I know it is for me. If I'm not really feeling the person on some type of level then its not happening and if it does happen by some chance then it won't be good.
Honestly for me sex can make or break a date or sometimes even a relationship. lol. I mean if its good (wish I'm praying it is) then everything is good but if its not then damn wtf. lol. It's almost as if the attraction goes down hill but it also all depends on the timing. And that's why its so key to have it at the right time and not to rush. So the moral of the story is if you want something out of your dating friend then maybe its best not to rush and wait for the RIGHT time or you could just be a sex object. lol.

Date Anxiety

okay so this isn't my first date with him but I am still anxious as if it is. I'm not quite sure why that is. I think I was less anxious and nervous than this the FIRST time we went out. So I just need to relax. But I swear time is going by so slow. This whole week has gone by slow. I think it maybe because one- I really really like him. And second this time we're on my turf as opposed to me going to his side of town. I know that I have a lot planned for us and I guess I'm just hoping that everything goes smoothly. You know how it is when you have plans and you want them to go right. So anyway I guess that's why I have all the anxiety at this moment.

Anyway date anxiety is something that I'm sure most of us either go through or have gone through. And I guess it really depends on how much you like the person cause we all know it ain't the same for everybody. I mean we all get nervous at times and it can even happen on the date itself. But the key thing is just to be easy and not let the butterflies get the best of you. Be your charming, beautiful, witty self and all will fall into place, at least that's what I keep telling myself. ; 0

Stalker Date

Have you dated someone who was a STALKER? Who was obsessed with you? who was a Bug-a Boo? I mean what are these dudes thinking? I hope they don't think that its cute to chase a woman down to the point that she is scared for her life and wants to file a restraining order. I had a guy recently who I dated for such a small amount of time that I didn't even understand where all the EXTRA was coming from. The constant emails and calls begging to speak to you. I mean c'mon wtf is really good no wonder you're single. I had another dude I used to date that told me straight up that he would not stop calling me until I had changed my phone number. I mean what is that about? Is that supposed to make me answer your calls or respond to your many texts and emails? Are guys that pressed for a female that they go to extremes. A girlfriend of mine recently told me that a guy she dated was going through her trash and found out her work address after she broke it off with him. When is enough is enough? When is a woman saying to a man hey it's over and let's leave it at that just be THAT. Why should there be anymore especially if there's a breakup and maybe not a friendly one at that? What pushes a guy over the edge to the point that they start to harass a woman? Aren't we ALL adults? If I say please leave me alone shouldn't that be just that. Do I need to say it a different way or in a different language? Is there a different interpretation for leave me alone? I used to have this boyfriend who a bit crazy so I left him alone. Well it didn't stop there. It started with him popping up at places he knew I would be at to him calling my friends and family to find out where I was. Can we get your life together. What's really going on? When someone says its over its over. Granted there maybe a slight chance that if you have feelings for the person you may try to win them back but not to the point where they fear you. That's not even cool. So with all that said guys and girls too being a stalker is NOT cool. Its downright scary. Who wants to constantly watch their back just because you don't understand that we're broken up. It's bad enough we have other things to worry about while dating but stalkers too... wow what is this world coming to....lol

Bad Date

What constitutes a bad date? A bad date could be two people just not feeling each other or mainly one not feeling the other and it shows. Or it could be the event or things that occur during the event. There could be a lot of reasons as to why a date goes bad. And I've had my fair share of bad dates. All in all they are lessons to be learned. I always try to think about what part I played in the bad date and vice versa. Now there are ways to come back from a bad date but some are just not fixable. lol. I had one guy I went out with (and I will take a lot of blame here) that I showed up late to where we were supposed to meet. He kept calling me but I was on a long distance VERY IMPORTANT phone call so I would not click over. When I finally called him he had left our meeting spot but said he would meet me closer to where we were supposed to have dinner. Ok fine. So I get to our meeting spot and park my car and he meets me at my car and then we drive around looking for parking for his car. SO he decides to park right in front of the restaurant. Now I should've known something was up because you are not allowed to park in front of the establishment. He tells me not to worry about it that he'll just get a ticket. Umm ok. Moving right along we get inside the restaurant. Now here is when things really go sour. He starts talking (bragging) about himself and how he has this and that. So I pretend I'm listening but its hard to focus because I'm supposed to meet my girls after dinner with this dude and they keep blowing up my phone. Now granted usually I would put my phone on silence but because I had to meet them somewhere I kept it on vibrate. So the more he talked about self the more I lost interest and the more my phone buzzed. I apologized profusely but honestly I didn't even care. So now we order. He orders an appetizer along with dinner. The appetizer comes he devours it then excuses himself to the bathroom....... 15 min later I'm like wtf is up. Did he get sick? ... 30 min later and I call his phone goes to vm. I call a few more times-same thing. wtf. no wait for real did dude leave? So I have my friend call him and he picks up and as soon as she mentions my name the phone disconnects. Ok so now I know that my DATE left me. lol. I can't believe this. But I find it hilarious until the waitress comes over. I explain to her the situation she asks me do I still want his meal to come out (umm NO) and then she tells me to just enjoy my dinner but that I will have to pay for the appetizer he ate. wtf. are you serious right now. So now I'm mad but you know what I don't even care. I sit and enjoy my dinner and her tip was right there in the appetizer. Did I hear from him again of course not. Did I learn a lesson. You bet. Don't go out with ugly dudes just for a free dinner. lol. especially if you're not interested for real. So that goes down as WORST DATE EVER. Do I and the few friends I told still laugh about it. Of course.

Interracial Dating

What exactly does that mean? Most people consider interracial dating to be a black/white couple. But there can be all types of interracial dating. I wanted to post this today because I recently went on a date with my friend who happens to be Caucasian. As you can see I have no problem dating outside of my race. I guess it has something to do with my background and the way I was raised. I try not to look at someones race as an issue we are ALL equal in my opinion. We all bleed, cry, hurt, love and go through the same things however different it maybe for you or others. Needless to say while I was out with my friend we passed a guy who happened to be my race and he started making rude comments and shouting obscenities about us. I tried to ignore the situation and start conversing with my friend who I am sure heard the person as well. It's almost scary-what do you do in that situation? Is it fair for someone to judge whom you choose to date?

I was watching the Black in America series and there was a young black woman on there who spoke of her white husband and biracial children. She talked about how his family would make remarks about their relationship and not just his family but strangers in passing as well. Again why is it that people feel they can pass judgement on other people's relationships? I hear the stories about the black women who get upset when they see a white woman dating a black man. Who cares? Why is it any of your concern? Clearly that's who he chose and you shouldn't be trying to figure out what went wrong and why he didn't choose you or someone else. That is his preference just like we all have preferences. Why should we knock someone for their decision.

Something New was a movie in which a black woman starts dating a white man. She has to deal with her feelings for this man as well as the reaction of her family, friends, and strangers. And I could completely understand what she was going through. You want to try "something new" but then you're afraid because you don't know what peoples reactions are going to be. And not that someones reaction should dictate your relationship but you feel uncomfortable when you hear remarks and stares just because of who you are with. You feel uncomfortable to hold their hand, kiss them in public but at the same time you don't want the uncomfortableness to show through. You want everything to seem normal just as if you were out with someone of your own race. You try to get past the uncomfortableness but its hard. And then eventually I'm sure it gets to a point where you just say Fu*k it. Anyway I don't really know where I am going with this I just needed to get my thoughts out. But people need to either mind their business or be more open minded. This is the new millennium let's get it together.....it's no longer Jungle Fever you can't help who you love....... so I'm going to keep pressing on and try to move pass the haters and keep dating whomever I want whether they be purple, Asian, or whatever. I just want peace and happiness.

The Annoying Date

How can a date be annoying and you haven't even gone on one? I'll tell you how. There are guys who just chill and are laid back and there are those that I would call Eager Beavers. First of all guys if you like a female it's fine to let her know but not on a constant basis if you just met a few days days prior. It gets a bit annoying. To tell a female that you JUST met you miss her can be a bit scary. It kind of puts me off like wtf. I don't even know you. Don't by no means tell a female that (again) you just met that you've been staring at pictures of her and thinking about her all day. Wow. Let us at least be on the same page first or just actually hold that thought. I'm not knocking you if you just instantly fell head over heels but if you can tell the recipient is not feeling the same way cool it a bit. Turn it down a notch. Don't plan vacations and rendezvous' for future dates when we haven't even had a first one. How do you (guy) know that you'll make it past another week? a month? All I'm saying is that some guys need to chill. What's the rush? Just take it easy. To add to it if you're meeting someone online and we DON'T know each other please be easy. I had to delete one guy because he was just asking too many questions after about 3 hours of me starting my account. I already knew where he worked, lived, his phone # and email. I'm like wow you waste no time. And maybe that's me being cautious but the whole over the top look is not cute-you're doing too much. Just fall back a bit. This is not the case for all guys but there are a few that fall through the cracks and it makes you wonder why they maybe single.....

Dating 101

Maybe this should've been my first post. I recently got into a conversation with someone regarding dating. I mean what exactly is dating? So I found a definition of what dating is:

a. An engagement to go out socially with another person, often out of romantic interest.
b. One's companion on such an outing.

So my definition doesn't vary too far from the definition I found. Dating to me is to go out with the person and getting to know them mainly for romantic reasons. Now people have their own definitions of what dating is. And then there is the question of dating vs courting? what's the difference? And there is one. The main difference seems to be that modern dating may include intimacy whereas courting does not. Courting consists of getting to fully know the person without any intimacy and leading to marriage. So there you have it. And most people like myself tend to date. I guess you can call me old fashioned but I do enjoy taking the time to get to know a person. There are some people who like a person and they may go out a few times and they just go straight into a relationship. Personally I feel that leaves room for failure because you're getting to know the person as you go along in a relationship and what if the person is not exactly what you want or thought. That's when relationships go sour. I rather save myself the headache and the heartache. Most of they guys I date anyway don't make it pass a few dates so why set myself up. And although a relationship is not marriage it's still a relationship. And for that reason alone I'm just a single girl dating......

Dating in Cyberspace or should I say MYspace

I've never been the one to venture to cyberspace for a date. I mean the idea sounded really crazy to me at first but now I'm not so sure. I mean I think I may actually be open to the idea. I've been reading articles and watching news programs where more and more couples are actually meeting online and getting married. Is this just a fad? a fake? or the real thing? I see the commercials for Match.com all the time and now they're even offering a promotion. I may just have to take them up on that and see what the possibilities may be. But then I go back and forth with myself and it brings me back to my original reasons for staying away from online dating. My reasons are what if this guy is a nutcase? but then again I guess that can qualify for any person you meet. What if this is not the person that he says he is? I mean let's say we swap pics and then we meet up and you look nothing like your pic isn't that a false pretense? I'm not being superficial either I'm just saying if I think you look like one thing and then you come off like wtf. lol. True story that happened to my friend. She had been talking to this guy on my space for awhile and then they met up for drinks well he was NOT at all what he looked like in the pics. The actual picture he sent was a throwback pic but at least she stayed had a drink on him of course and left never to contact him again. I know you may think she was wrong if she was feeling him prior to but isn't that a form of deception? Anyway my last reason is you just can never tell. I would much rather meet you face to face and follow my instincts then get caught up. I guess that's me being cautious. Anyway I think I may actually get a MYspace account just to see what this online dating is all about. I mean you never know my prince may come through for me right there on my screen... I'm open to the thought.....

Childless Dating

NOT ME. Sounds cruel but true. And I hate to be like that but I don't have children of my own. I want someone who is bringing the same thing that I am and that is no kids. And honestly its getting harder to find men who don't have kids. I hate asking that question do you have any children because 9 times out of 10 the answer will be YES. And I don't want to come flat out and say okay well talk to you later. lol. Now I can understand if you were married and are now divorced and have a child or children. That's understandable. But there are a lot of young men out here who have children and some times by not just one but two or three other females. I'm not judging them or their behavior but what's the problem. Why lay up with someone and have children by this person if you honestly don't see this person in your life. It's a sad situation for all. I understand that things don't work out and sh*t happens but it just seems a little too frequent for me.
As I seek that one person for me I would prefer that he be childless. Not because I'm against children but because there can also be a lot of drama that comes with that man and that child. I have dated a few guys with children and I always say to myself afterwards I will NEVER date another guy with kids. However, somehow there's always a guy who I'm interested in who comes with that little extra. Maybe I'm a little spoiled because I at times feel as if I have to compete for attention. Of course the child should be number one in that man's life but I also want to be number one and there can't be two number ones so then I fall back. And don't get started on the baby mama drama that can be associated with it. That's another day. I just want to be able to start fresh with someone that I am hopefully married to and that WE can bring OUR child into this world TOGETHER. Is that too much to ask for?

Second Date??? Maybe....

SO the newbie has asked for a second date. In all honesty I know the first date ended on a somewhat positive note but I think it still left a bad taste in my mouth. I just don't know if I'm up to having a 2nd date? You know how the book goes maybe he's just not that into you well I just don't think I'm THAT into him. And to be quite honest we may have had one whole 3 minute conversation since the last date. I mean c'mon dude I know people get busy but I am a FIRM believer that people make time for the things that they want to make time for. So with that being said I just don't know about granting him a second request. I'm trying to keep an open mind though so we'll see. ...

The Ex-Factor....

So this weekend I went to NYC in hopes of finding "NEW" friends (men). Unfortunately that didn't pan out but its all good. For the record I had a ball regardless. So when I got back I got an instant message from one ex and an email from another. Both wanting to see me. Now I don't go backwards (I try not to) but a free outing is a free outing. So I chose the ex I hadn't seen in awhile but I have actually been thinking about him. So it worked out perfect. We went out to eat. And I must've been nervous because I just kept rambling on about nothing really while he just kinda watched me. I honestly don't think I ever really looked him in his face. Maybe I was afraid he'd hypnotize me and I'd just be a fool in love all over again or that I'd jump his bones (it happens). Now granted this still was a dangerous move for me because this particular ex I do still have feelings for. But like everything else they too shall pass. So overall it was a nice dinner quick lil catch up but somewhat awkward. Then he asked for a hug I think I had avoided it on purpose. But at the end of the night I gave him a hug and I swear he didn't want to let go and frankly neither did I. But the night ended well. He even emailed me when he got home to let me know it was really good seeing me. I'm like wow get it together girlfriend. Yesterday I fell asleep with a smile and this morning I woke up with one. Oh how I miss that man. I must remember he's an ex for a REASON along with the other busters.
So while on my way to NY I get a text from the new guy. I must say I was surprised. Not because I didn't expect him to ever contact me again just surprised that he was wishing me well on my trip and couldn't wait to see me again. Wow so maybe he really isn't that much a jerk after all. lol. That was kind of my end impression. So we'll see what happens with that. Actually I just got an email from him. lol. Hopefully it's a good one. Ugh pretty vague but its okay.
I must say that I don't know if some of the exes have bumped their head but they have been in contact with me as of late. I mean I don't mind hanging out with some of them because honestly no HARD feelings we didn't work out and there's a reason for it. But it also makes me think why are you all of a sudden contacting me? Are you bored? Or do you remember that I'm probably one of the best things you had going for you? Whatever the case is I'm enjoying it because actually the ball is in my court. And I don't have to see them if I don't want to and no explanation needed. But there's one who we did hang out recently and he seems in love. Okay it's not that serious buddy. Fall back a lil because we just hung out that one time and granted we had a nice time I'm not trying to take it there. So as nicely as I try to let him know it is what it is I don't think this particular ex factor is getting it. So what's a girl to do....

The New Guy

Yesterday was my first date with the new guy. And as much as I anticipated it I'm going to have to give it 3 out of 5 stars. First of all I got turned around trying to get to the restaurant. Then I couldn't find parking and I was now late. : ( So through all of that I managed to make my way to the restaurant. Well my date was sitting there outside waiting for me on his laptop (not a problem). I say hi. He barely looks up and continues to work on his laptop. Umm hello I am here so I just take a seat beside him until he's finished up. But now since I received this shady sort of response and unfriendly greeting (not even a smile) I turn shady. And my whole demeanor and attitude changed. I wasn't nasty I was just quiet. He immediately sensed that something was wrong and proceeded to question me about it. I didn't even want to get into it so I said nothing and smiled. As I'm looking at the menu I look up to ask him something and he's not there. So I'm thinking wtf. The waitress then comes over and asks if there are 2 of us and I look confused because Idk where my date went. But then he returns and doesn't say anything. At this point I'm just like let me let the shadiness go. This is the first date let's see what happens. So then he starts to question me again about my "malfunction" as he called it. My attitude. My shadiness. Whatever. So I begin telling him that I just gave back what I got. And he explains that he was doing work and couldn't just stop. So I say okay that's understandable. The rest of the night is okay with some forced conversation but we manage. After dinner we go to talk and he brings back up the beginning of the date. So I break it down to him and explain that he wasn't very friendly when I walked up and that he didn't even acknowledge my presence. He tried to come back by saying that if I had walked up on my cell I probably would've done the same. I explained to him that I wouldn't because I would've at least smiled, acknowledged him and held my finger up to let him know to wait a sec. So then he understood and agreed that he could've been better. And then he apologized. So after that the night was quite smooth. I'm glad that we cleared that up. But this guy is a lot more serious than most guys I date. So right now I'm on the fence but I'll give it another shot and see where this leads. But strangely enough the newbie has me thinking about the previous ex. That's another story.

The Friendly Date or is it Outing????

So Friday night wasn't exactly what I expected. But it was nice nonetheless. A friend of mine invited me out with him and I'm so grateful that he came to get me (gas prices are KILLING me). Anyway we went out to a nice lil lounge to celebrate a friends birthday. We didn't stay long and I had a killer headache (the camera flashes were NOT helping) but I could tell that maybe my friend had a lil more on the mind. Being the person that I am I quickly shut down any thoughts that he may have been having. He even threw in a comment you should've brought an overnight bag. Umm no buddy I don't think so. I mean we're cool and we used to date a year or so ago but now we're just friends or at least I think so. Maybe he thinks there's more to it or maybe I was just looking like a goddess (lol). He did say several times through the night that he was SO happy to see me and I looked great. Well thanks and I really did appreciate the first few times but after awhile its just like Ok. Am I wrong for thinking that? Oh well. Our outing just started feeling slightly awkward. I think we were just on 2 different pages. But no bad feelings. At the end I think he wanted to go in for a kiss but I quickly gave my cheek. I'm not trying to lead anyone on. Overall I am glad I was able to see and hang out with an old friend. And I still didn't see Wanted. But at least I did some good shopping. : )

Friday, June 27, 2008

This weekend I'm trying to find someone to take me to the movies. I want to see the new movie Wanted. Why am I having such a hard time finding a date for this one? lol. Well I think I may have it, some of the guys that are in my phone book I just don't want to be bothered with them. One of them is really immature. The other is kind of flaky. One just plays too much. Is it too much to ask for a nice guy who has good conversation and can just hang out without anything more than that? I mean I do have friends like that but they are married men. I don't mind hanging out with them from time to time there's nothing wrong with it as long as its not a habit and there's nothing more to it. But it just leaves me back at square one cause I'm not trying to hang out with the taken ones either. Well I guess I'll just have to go with my girls or solo. I'll see but I am going to see the movie regardless. lol.

The Dating Game

We've all been there, done that. We're supposed to date until we find the ONE. And although I've been on plenty dates-some good, some bad, some nice, some not so nice I still haven't found the ONE. SO I decided to write this blog about my dating woes and more. I have to say that's why I love Sex & the City. Carrie and the girls really were onto something. And since watching th emovie and Carrie being married there's one less girl off the single road (even if it's fictional). I will have to say most of my friends are single. Granted I do have some, okay 3 friends that are married the majority of us are single girls. And the general consensus seems to be that there aren't any good guys available. I don't completely agree with that statement. Just not EVERY guy is meant for EVERY body. For me personally I seem to meet guys who are either workaholics OR are just NOT willing to commit. I'm like c'mon guys we're not getting ANY younger and who are you holding out for. But the reality of it is that I am single and I am content with that but I do and am dating.
I went out on a date a few weeks back with a gentleman who I met about 2 years ago at a party. He's a friend of a friend. And its weird because I think we both know that we are NOT meant to be but its still ok to go out on a date and catch up from time to time so we did. We actually went on a double date and my friend that was also with us commented after the date-it's been 2 years maybe he's not that into you. I had to turn it on her and inform my friend that I am just not that into him. And this particular gentleman and I go out one time maybe every 4-5 months. I guess we're both bored so we just see each other. But once we go out its almost like we realize why we don't go out and why we haven't spoken in months. And since our last date we have not spoken-it happens everytime but I am not worried. He'll call back sometime I guess.
Moving right along there's a new guy in the picture. He and I met almost the same way at a friend's birthday party. So far so good. He seems nice. We've had 2 long conversations in total. One of my friends has met him and she thinks he's pretty nice. We actually have an upcoming date that I am excited about. I'll have to tell you how it goes......
