Am I ovulating? Because, for some reason, I like both the match guys I went out with this week. Let’s start with Number 5 (my date from Wednesday).
First Date Number 5
This was probably one of the most hilarious dates I’ve ever had in my life. The reason why, I am going to hold off on telling for now until I have Glitter’s help. I will give you a hint- it was a secret double date, of sorts.
My date was with Pilot Guy. He showed up 30 minutes late but he was very apologetic and called and texted to let me know what was going on (there was an accident). So, I didn’t mind. That is out of his control and he was very communicative and apologetic and that is all you can ask for.
When he did show up, he was very flustered and nervous acting. I think this had to do with the fact that it was A) our first date, B) he was rather late and he said he hates being late and C) he had to break up a conversation I was having with another guy at the bar who was trying to pick me up. While I was waiting on my date, the other guy whipped out his phone to verify if PilotGuy was in fact telling the truth and looked up the traffic report. Then he made dire predictions about how he would turn around and not even show up for our date. Pilot and I promptly moved to a table together as soon as he arrived.
PilotGuy was a cutie pie but looked to be about 12 years old and is short. He is only a couple weeks older than me and that kind of throws me off as I am used to dating older men. However, I am not at all opposed to dating guys my age, it is just that they tend to have the maturity level of 15yrs girls. My date, however, seemed very mature. Turns out, he has actually been married before. In my match.com mania I overlooked his ‘divorced’ status on his profile. So I was pretty shocked when he started talking about his wedding! Pilot Guy was very open about his past relationship though and said he would answer any questions I had regarding it. I didn’t really have many. I don’t see the point in prying deeply into his life on the first date. A surface evaluation with a mild skimming below the surface is all that I typically find necessary on first dates. Plus if I ask him deep, prodding questions he may do the same to me and that is not something I enjoy with randoms.
In a nutshell, Pilot and I had a good time! We left the first location and moved on to a second location for some dinner and drinks that night. We talked nonstop and laughed a lot. We seem to share a similar approach to life which is refreshing.
At the end of the date, he walked me to my car. We hugged. Then he completely surprised me by leaning in and kissing me! I was rather taken aback but he did it in such a smooth way it seemed natural. And, quiet frankly, I was almost relieved that a man actually showed some sense of initiative. It has been months since a man has actually done something on his own without my prompting.
On my way home I chatted with a girlfriend who had called me while on the date. (By chatted, I mean filled her in on the entire date). While I was on the phone, he texted me and called me. I somehow missed his call. The text read: Not sure if I was supposed to do that. I really enjoyed meeting you. Do me a favor and let me know that you made it home okay! 🙂 By “that” he meant kissing me. He thought he had “crossed a line” and “offended me” by kissing me. I know this because his voicemail said so. In fact, he thought I wasn’t answering his call because I was offended by his forwardness in kissing me. When I got home, I called him and told him I wasn’t offended and that I had enjoyed myself. This made him very happy. It was actually really cute.
As a follow up to this date, he actually called me the next day and asked me to go kayaking with him this weekend. I accepted.
First Date Number 6
This date was with someone we will call, Lawyer. He is one year older than me, the oldest of two boys and he is (guess what?) a lawyer. The date started out in a pretty typical fashion. He was nervous and talked mainly about his new town home he is closing on, his job and about the repairs his car needs. Dating the first time home buyer is very interesting to me because they simply adore talking about their homes. Even if they have had said home for a couple years. Doesn’t matter. Maybe they think it shows that they are good ‘providers’ or is supposed to signal a sort of ‘nesting’ stage to the female. Next, time I might ask them if they have picked out nursery colors.
Lawyer was pretty fun to mess around with. I was worried he might be the obnoxious attorney type that droned on for hours about how important he is and yelled ‘objection’ randomly throughout the dinner. Instead, he seemed down to earth and rather intelligent. He also seemed to be close to his family which was charming. He had two glasses of red wine with dinner and had a grilled cheese and tomato bisque for dinner. He didn’t seem to mind when I teased him about his dinner selection and asked if he was going to order a Rice Krispy Treat for dessert. I wasn’t sure if he liked me teasing him because he liked me or if he saw me like the little sister that he never had type. It didn’t take me long to find out….
Lawyer walked me to my car and I hugged him goodbye and thanked him for dinner. He then proceeded to step on my toe. I suppose in my injured state I was vulnerable and he decided to go in for the kill! He grabbed me and kissed me. Grilled cheese boy has some balls. I wonder if I can sue him?
I am now a kissing slut. I have kissed two match.com boys within the past 24 hours.
I wonder how I went from 0 to 60 in such a short time? A week ago I was wishing I had spent my money on a knitting class because I would probably get more action from that than match.com. Today it is almost midnight and I am exhausted from my real dates, my online prospects and, oh yeah, my actual day to day life and job.
In conclusion, I don’t think I am ovulating, but I am pretty sure the men of match.com are!
