A former work colleague who enjoys my dating stories posted this on my FB wall and it's funny.
Talking about dating, so...on Saturday evening went on a date. I picked the popular bar we met at, as we both hadn't been by there since it was renovated. It was packed as it had outdoor dining and it was a very nice night. There was also some guy's 40th Birthday party going on the upper deck.
Unlike all my other dates recently, date was there, on time and waiting for me. He was also a huge, tall ex-football player type who is almost 50. He was from working class northeast Philly and moved out to the suburbs. Has one daughter, a year older than LO. He works as a CFO at a small company. PERF... he was also socially awkward and the world's least interesting man. Knew very little outside of his world, hadn't traveled much and I have no idea what he did with his free time. He mentioned that he would love to have someone make dinner for him.
And unfortunately he was very into me. He called me upbeat.
He asked me during the date if I would see him again. Reluctantly, I said yeah, I would and he should pick the next date. I left the date with mixed feelings at best. Also, he tried to kiss me in the parking lot in front of the valet and waiting cars. He got my cheek, instead.
I slept on it and had that "Oh shit" feeling about him when I woke up Sunday. Later in the day, he texted me and suggested that we go to Dave and Busters for our next date. He doesn't drink that much either, so the suggestion wasn't made ironically.
I couldn't respond...and haven't yet. I am too restless for a guy like him.
LO is home from her four weeks away at camp, where she won a leadership award. I'm proud of her. She also had adventures and "nearly died" when she had lightning strike twice near her. One of the counselors of her program was kicked out for coming back to camp duties drunk, so that wasn't cool.
LO also is in a fight with the Big Lug (her football player boyfriend here) as a girl at camp got jealous of the attention she was getting and told Big Lug (via a network of friends) that LO was cheating on him with another boy. Which did happen, by the way, but LO and the Big Lug were not going steady prior to camp so...
Apparently the Big Lug doesn't want to talk to LO. LO is trying to get him back. The boy from camp really likes LO but lives in New Jersey and goes to private school in Delaware.
My brother invited LO and I to his beach house half-assedly on Sunday. They'll be on vacation next week. I can only think they gave the nanny off and need help.
I spent my birthday by myself as the week prior was overwhelming and logistics to do something were even moreso. My sister sent me flowers on my birthday, but forgot to leave her name on the card. LO called me from camp. I did get a bottle of the good stuff and a Doner Kebab. And I saw Billy Joel the next day, which was fun and reminded me of growing up in the suburbs of New York City.
LO and I are gonna take an exotic trip later this year to celebrate.
I must get back to procrastinating in the other ways.
