So I haven’t been updating on the dating front, because I was following my own rule about not writing about guys I actually like. I had gone out on a few dates with this guy who seemed really great – outgoing, funny, kind – so I hadn’t blogged about it because I was seeing where it went.
Tonight, “High Hopes Guy” turned into “Asshole Guy” and I have been left completely speechless (an accomplishment, you can all agree). The short version is that I was essentially stood up. Though there is some humor to be found in how this happened, and the conversation that followed, I’m still a little too close to it to find that humor right now, so I’ll stick with the short version, call him an asshole and an idiot, and move on*.
Sooooo, we’re back to square one. I think I might take a break from dating for a while… First dates are really exhausting, and when all you’re having are first dates, then it ends up being more draining than fun (especially when none of them lead anywhere).
Don't you fear, my readers - I haven't given up on finding myself a partner in crime. But perhaps I will stick with friends of friends for a while, so I have a little more of an idea of what I'm getting into...
*Special thanks to A, for putting aside her homework to go out and get a drink with me tonight.
