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. : )

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......
