seriously, did i do something in a past life to deserve bad date after bad date without an end in sight?
so, the guy i mentioned in this post did call, and we made plans for Friday. as i have been disappointed by men more times than i care to count, i really didn’t have the highest hopes for this one. saves being disappointed again, right? anyway…the recrap:
ok, so we were supposed to meet at a restaurant on the west side at 7…so i get there a coupla minutes before 7 because i am always unfashionably early. and i only live a coupla blocks away! he doesnt get there til after 7:10, citing work as an excuse. i let that slide.
so, we have drinks and dinner…he knocked back 2 mojitos way faster than i did. hmmmm, not sure what to make of that. but conversation was decent, dinner was good, and he suggested a “nightcap.” i suggested going to another bar/lounge near my place that has nice couches and stuff to sit and talk (i’ve been there before with a group and thought it’d be a good date place!) so we do.
so he mentions how during dinner he wanted to kiss me and “can i kiss you now?” i said sure. and he does…not bad, but a little hard, i thought. so we’re talking a little more and sitting pretty close to each other and we kiss some more…ok, now definitely a little too hard. i felt my lip was being bitten or sucked on or something (my bottom lip is actually still a little black and blue even now!) even when i asked for him to be a little more gentle…meh. what can i say, thats what i like. (and mind you, i have never gotten any complaints before in that department.) then:
him: “want to see if there’s a movie on HBO or something?”
me: (innocently) “what do you mean?”
him: “we can hang out at my place and cuddle and watch a movie or something”
me: “i dont think so”
him: “or we can hang out on my balcony”
me: “again, i dont think so.”
(maybe i said it a little nicer than that…but please. i think i’ve learned from enough mistakes to know if a guy wants you to go back to his place on the first date, hes just after one thing. and that movie doesnt get watched.)
so eventually we call it a night and he walks me to my place. we said something about possibly getting together next weekend. we’ll see if that happens. and if so, what he suggests-if it’s actually going out or just going to his place to “watch a movie.” my friends don’t think i should give him a second chance. nice and cute, but a little immature, i thought.
and if that’s not enough, i logged into match.com yesterday and find the following message from a guy (again, taken verbatim):
“Can I run and chaser you around the city sexy jewish principesa… ?”
ew. and i get a “wink” from someone…i dont want to put the exact username here, but let’s just say the username just screams “player.”
i swear, i cannot catch a break, right?
