Date Planning

I feeling better about my date with eHarmony David.  We just chatted on the phone for a little while and now have actual plans.  Its possible he was condescending a couple times, but maybe that was just me.  He laughed really hard when I told him that when I pull up to the marina, it will look like a large banana is humping a pistachio (my boat is bright yellow.  My car, bright green), so at least he has a sense of humor.

Still feel vaguely like I am cheating on BB - but, I can't cheat on someone I'm "not dating."  And I shouldn't feel like I'm cheating (or like a slutty ho).  I'm doing the best I can do to shove those feelings deep down inside so I can have a good time and not judge this poor guy.

Hi Susan

I found your blog through Fish and just read all of the archives. In fact, I tried to force myself to get up and go to the bathroom mid way through June but I couldn't do it! You're intelligent and witty and basically pretty awesome. I think we have a lot in common. Clearly modesty is one of them! I made a list while I was reading. Yes, I'm neurotic like that. Because I knew I was going to leave you a comment to say hi. So these are the things that struck me while I was reading.

1. The first (and sadly, only) time I went whitewater kayaking, I spent the entire weekend with a headache. I think because I thought I was going to die the whole time I was on the water.
2. Ancient virgins (I was 20 too)
I was with that college ex for 7 years. I call it my 7 years in Tibet.
3. I'm awesome because I'm single.
4. I'm self-sufficient because I'm single.
5. I don't dis my girlfriends when I find a new guy. Okay, granted, that hasn't happened in several years but whatever.
6. I have been called intimidating (menacing and a man-eater, even!) by just about every boy I have ever dated and many male friends. Oh, except for the last guy who told me that he wasn't in love with me because I was too nice. Sigh.
7. I used to rely heavily on the HJNTIY books but now... not so much. Because I have them memorized, underlined and post-it-noted.
8. I miss the spoons too.
I did the relationship to booty call thing for a year. In fact, it started exactly a year ago today. I'm hoping Tuesday will usher in something (anything!) better.
9. My blog is pink. And green. Come visit :)

Okay, I'm really going to the bathroom now!

Hi Butterfly! I'm so glad that you found my blog and that I may have helped cause you permanent kidney damage! I know that there are a lot of single, awesome girls out there and you are clearly one of them!

P.S. - I was 21, not 20, so I'm still more lame than you are!!

Neither of you are 20 or 21 anymore, so get over it... You are special people and I know special boys are just waiting to find you. BB notwithstanding (he's sex, not special, big diff.).
