Back from Turkey, feeling good about life and scheduling all those postponed dates, and shockingly none of them were douchebags! (who knew it was possible?)
First up we have TB. 30 years old, lawyer, military background, 6ft tall, born & bred white boy.
We both live in the same area we so decided to grab drinks nearby. He suggests this dreadful Irish dive bar and in an attempt to not be a complete snob, I say OK.
He was pleasant, good conversation, but no actual chemistry. We took a walk outside because the bar AC was freezing me to death and he had the perfect opportunity to kiss me as we sat on a park bench under the stars - but he didn't. So that made it clear to see we were both on the same page. Just not that interested.
He walked me to my car, we hugged and no words since.
Simplicity at it's finest.
Ahnd, 30 years old, 5'11, internal medicine doctor, from India, doing residency here.
We began talking Thursday and by that evening we had planned to meet Saturday. We plan to meet at one of my favorite bars in the city (his idea), & instantly I am looking forward to this one.
So he's dressed perfectly -- nice loafers, dark jeans, white shirt. He's Indian which = tall, dark, exotic, + handsome. Oh and smart, he's a doctor so that's kind of a given.
We each drank two dirty martinis and talked for 3 hours - it was a great date. He was so much fun, easy to laugh with, we told each other stories that were far deeper than just first date - his grandmother happens to be a big time bollywood star which of course intrigues me - he shared family photos and I felt like I really got to know him.
Only downside I can say is he definitely talked more than he asked, but it's hard to get that 50/50 ratio and I'm thankful he wasn't shy or boring.
End of the date I told him I was headed to meet friends and he said, "I can't wait for date 2, I am so glad girls like you exist, you give me hope in humanity. What should we do for #2?" I playfully responded, "you're the guy, you'll figure that one out."
No kiss but he did text later that night and on Monday evening.
Let's see if he makes date 2 happen....
Well he wasn't a date. I met up with my girlfriends at a bar and when we walked up to grab drinks, two guys beelined towards us. I hit it off with one of them and we wound up talking for the rest of the night. And kissing. And ubering back to our homes together.
Deets - Jake, 28, real estate flipper, 6'3, and born and bred in my area. He was so calm yet funny and down to earth. I haven't met someone in person in SUCH a long time, I found this to be so thrilling. Like a blank slate, no preconceived notions of what they'd be like, no apprehensions, etc.
Physically he wasn't precisely my type (really skinny and I prefer bigger guys) but the fact that he came up to me, was really nice, had the guts to kiss me repeatedly in public, was affectionate in the uber (but never creepy) and texted me the next day == all major points. And I was a bit tipsy, two martinis and two vodka soda's deep + no dinner means I wasn't exactly thinking straight. I neverrrrr leave my friends at bars for guys, but then again, guys rarely approach me in bars so it's new territory.
We are going on an actual date tomorrow and I'm actualllllly looking forward to it. Fingers crossed...
I had a date planned for Sunday with this trauma surgeon who just moved here from South Carolina but I had an event come up and had to postpone so I will be meeting him later tonight -- we have talked for far too long now (due to me canceling date 1 & going to Turkey) SOOO let's see if he was worth the wait. Definitely seems like the most mature of the bunch.
The guys who got eliminated/blocked this week I'm going to do a lump post on.
Time to go pick out an outfit and polish my tinderella crown,
