Two dates in one week – part one

Last Friday was basically a repeat of the Friday before: went out after work, got drunk, and made out with some random guy (I’ll call him “Pic-stitcher”). The only difference was that I didn’t wake up the next day with a hickey on my neck. (Oh wait…another difference was that I drank wayyyy too much and ended up sleeping on my bathroom floor, waking up every 15-30 minutes so I could puke. Hot mess.)

On Saturday I was supposed to meet up with the Hickey Guy, but he got in a car accident the night before, so after a little bit of conversation I said we should just reschedule. I felt bad that he had gotten hurt, but I was SOOOO relieved that I didn’t have to meet up with him, because I was still really hungover.

On Saturday and Sunday I texted back and forth a little bit with Pic-stitcher. He gave me his full name and told me to find him on Facebook, which was definitely a first for me. I looked at all his Facebook activity, and I wasn’t sure what to make of it. He posts sooo many pics! And he does a LOT of pic-stitching (hence his nickname). I don’t know, maybe I’m crazy to feel this way, but isn’t all that pic posting usually more of a chick thing?

But I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. He just moved to NY from California a few months ago, so maybe all the uploading is a way to stay connected with his friends and family back home. We’ll see.

Anyway, on Sunday Pic-stitcher and I made a super bowl bet (“loser buys dinner”), which I won. On Monday he asked when I wanted to do dinner, and we made plans for Thursday night.

Also on Monday, Hickey Guy asked me if I wanted to get a drink during the week. I said I couldn’t, because “my schedule this week is packed!” I was supposed to be going upstate this weekend (now I’m not, because of the snow), and the rest of my week I was busy with salsa class, zumba and my dinner date with Pic-stitcher. Yes, I could have skipped zumba or salsa, but I really didn’t want to…which shows you my level of interest in meeting up with him at all. But then he gave me a sad face ( 😦 ) and it made me feel bad, so I suggested meeting up on Wednesday for a quick drink before my salsa class.

And that’s how I found myself with two dates lined up for this week. Honestly, I wasn’t excited about either of them. Both guys are cute, and there was really no reason for me NOT to be excited, but I wasn’t. At all. In fact, I was really tempted to cancel on both of them, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to go out with them. You never know, right?

To be continued.

    I’m now on the same boat, 30 something, separated with no hope of ever returning to my marriage with a Man whose Navy career is for sure over, Stone Waller, insulting and controlling behavior has me sooooo over it. 8 years of marriage- gone. New life? Dating? Scary!

  2. I always love your dating stories and can’t wait to see how this one turns out
