It's always harder to get excited about a new date when you just got out of bed with an amazing one but in order to protect myself, a girls gotta do what she's gotta do.
Si. Persian, 28, just moved to DC from NY, born in Iran, not very Americanized.
He invited me to dinner (danggggg bro, I see your first date game is strong) at this cozy Italian spot. I walk in and he's seated already. He stands to give me a hug and bam, I am taller than him in heels. Womp. Then he opens his mouth....super thick Iranian accent. Double womp.
He was a nice guy, talked mostly about himself and his dating past (apparently Persian girls are trying to jump his bones daily). I think he liked the fact that I seemed disinterested most of the date. Doesn't that figure? Wanting what he can't have. TYPICAL EFFING DUDE.
He asked me for a second date on the first. I explained my schedule the next two weeks is overwhelmingly busy but that I'd try. He texted me later in the evening and joking asked if I wanted to get married next week. I do appreciate his sense of humor and good looks but I do not see this going anywhere. I need someone Americanized and that's just not him. So adios amigos, Si.
Not a peep from him yesterday. Today on my way to work I get a text of him using the lemon squeezer I gave him. When I was making drinks at my house for us a few weeks ago, he commented how he'd had one in his Amazon shopping cart but hadn't pulled the trigger. I told him I go to homegoods often and I'd grab him one for half the price. Well, I found myself at homegoods and I remembered to grab it. So Monday night as he was leaving, I handed it to him. He was pleasantly surprised and commented on how sweet I am. (So now you understand the lemon squeezer photo)
We have had a little small talk here and there - nothing major. I don't expect much until next week when I'm back from Dallas. We have the gala to attend Wednesday (date 5) so atleast there is something on the books. I'd like him to come to my friend's hotel party that Friday but I feel laaaame inviting a guy to two events in one week.
It's hard not to get your hopes up and continue dating others when you've found a guy you'd like to explore the potential with. It's even harder to not put all your cards on the table and let the toad know that you're into him and he's leading the frontrunner. I know it's what I have to do, though.
I have a handful of new guys on tinder who have asked me out but I have zero free time soooo I have rain checked all the invites. Stay tuned to see where that leads us...
PS next Monday's post will be a shocker. Stay tuned for it, I've got a secret.
PPS The League is still a huge waste of time/joke. "Elite" dating my ass.
