Congratulations, we've made it to yet another "Soft-Core" Friday! That is a win in my book!
I told you in a recent post that I was back in the dating game, whether I was excited about it or not, so I thought I would give you all a little update.
Out of the 4 dates I had in 5 days, I still have Bachelor #1 and Bachelor #2 in the rotation. Bachelor #3 turned out to be not only a stalker but a married stalker. I totally knew there was something off with that dude. Glad I shut it down when I did. Bachelor #4 has slipped into the abyss of foggy memories and forgotten names. I hope he's doing well. Actually I really don't care but that's besides the point.
I had date #2 with Bachelor #1 on Wednesday night. We had dinner at the place that Bachelor #4 and I had met at. Hey, what can I say? I like that restaurant! Date #2 was good. We went a little deeper, talking about his work, his upcoming vacation, his family, his work out and nutrition plan, his.... are you tracking here? We talked a lot...about him. At one point, I quit talking and just let him go. It was a minute before he came up for air.
I'm not holding it against him too much. I think he was just still nervous around me. And in his defense, he's kind of a goof ball so we laughed a lot too. I appreciate his sense of humor. And his sparkly blue eyes. He references his self-proclaimed awesome sexual skill set a little too much though. Makes me wonder if he really is over compensating for something. We haven't gotten any where near figuring that out yet nor do I plan to in the near future. Date #3 is pending for the weekend.
As for Bachelor #2, we have date #3 scheduled for tonight. This guy really interests me for some reason. There is nothing really outstanding about him from what I can tell, but he is a solid, normal guy and I'm actually really attracted to that aspect of him. He's a single parent, hard worker, good family guy that has a relatively functional life much like myself. I get where he is coming from and likewise, he can understand my situation as well. There is something comforting in that.
The one thing that remains to be seen is the chemistry aspect. We have great conversation and enjoy being together, but we haven't physically touched yet outside of a hug at the beginning and end of each date so you know that the suspense is killing me!!
I'm not one to normally slow play it on that side of things but it's been kind of fun to wonder how it will shake it. We'll see if we can move things along a little tonight. A good solid make-out against my car will tell about everything I need to know to get a feel for our chemistry potential. I'm hoping for the best, but am cautiously optimistic.
Either way, I've decided to just let things roll and see how and who plays out. Maybe this dating thing isn't so bad after all...
