Adventures in Dating (Part 1 of 2)
“iwantyourjuices”. . .”drivingfool”. . . “mrgdog”. . “PepeLepew”. . .”horny”. . .”platnumdikk” —Oh my god! What am I getting myself into?? Do I really want to do this again? I have never had much luck with it. I converse with a few guys, and then never usually end up meeting them. Do I want to put myself out there? Yes, just do it, just look, see what’s out there. Surely, some of these guys have to be decent. You’re on here and you’re decent, so it only makes sense that some of them must be decent!
“I like movies cooking and making my own scented candles”—-Really?? You’re a guy and you like making your own scented candles? You are going to have all the girls messaging you. What do women, who like guys that make their own scented candles, look like??
“Hello, I am Bob. I am from (insert city here). I was wondering if you have a nice and smelly pair of feet that need massaging, kissing, and smelling? I also like to suck gently on the toes before slowly savoring my way upwards. If this appeals to your senses, let me know!!”—Totally grosses you out doesn’t it? Makes you feel all kinds of skeevy? Well, I guess unless you like having your toes sucked! This people, is an actual message I received from a guy on the POF–which stands for Plenty of Fish, if you weren’t aware, or as I lovingly refer to it, Plenty of Freaks!
Let me tell you, the toe sucking thing? Tame compared to some of the stuff I’ve gotten from 20-something year old guys! They’re looking for cougars, wanting the hook-up, and I was just amazed. Most of these guys were totally hot too! What the hell do they want with me?? Experience, that’s what! 😉 Sorry about their luck, but I turned most of them down. Except for this one really cute 29 year old. He seemed like a really nice guy, and was kind of funny, so I met him, and we have hung out a couple of times. I think 29 is lonely. I get lonely too, so I understand. Some days you just need a hug.
I told you I have had one date with Mr. M. Right now I am not really sure where that stands. I have texted him a couple of times over the last couple of days, but have heard nothing back from him. I debate if I should just write him off, or if I should be patient. I REALLY liked him! He is funny, and we can talk about everything, and I feel like he accepts me just the way I am. However, he doesn’t know everything about me, and I don’t know if he really wants to know me. I say I debate writing him off, but I can’t. I just can’t do it yet because I like him too much. I will just wait and see what happens. That does not mean I will not keep looking while I am waiting to see what happens.
Which led me to accepting a “meet for a drink” kind of thing with this other guy off the POF. Which I would have gone to tonight, after work, but he cancelled on me. Here is what he wrote me as his reason for cancelling, “But, I did see that other woman I was talking with on here again today and I really believe she and I have made a connection. While I don’t believe there’s anything wrong with a couple of near strangers having a drink together, somehow this doesn’t pass my “guilt test” and I know that if it’s something I really wouldn’t want to tell her about then it’s probably not something I should do.” So first of all, kinda had to chuckle about this guy doing this, because this was just like something I would do!! I tend to kind of put all my energy into one person before I even know if that person is worth any of my energy. (I sooo would be doing this very same thing over Mr. M this very minute, if I wasn’t forcing myself to do the exact opposite of what I usually do!) So, I told him that was fine, after messaging back and forth a couple of times I hadn’t been sure we had a whole in common, but I was willing to meet him. However, I understood his not wanting to, and wished him luck with his new lady friend. I also told him I appreciated him letting me know, instead of just not showing up, like so many other men might do!
