So look, I’ve only gone out with Tree Trunk once. He likes me. We all know that. In case you were unsure, I will be happy to forward any one of his 1,500 text messages to me from the past 2 days. 2 of which consisted of making sure we were still on for tonight. Uh, I’m not getting this whole ‘Alpha Male’ thing as I thought it was something totally different from sending multiple insecure and seemingly needy text messages, but I’m going to throw him a bone (no, dirty peeps) on this and chalk it up to his being nervous. Tonight is date #2.
Anyway, the other day I was on OkStupid playing the ‘rating game’ and came up with a mutual match thingie. You know, they rate me highly, I rate them highly, the stupid website sends an e-mail notifying us of the mutual merit points. 😉 I got one of those. I could see that he had looked at my profile, however, there was no e-mail from him. Boo. 😦 Well far be it from me to just sit back and wait for shit to happen, so I checked out his profile. Adorable redhead (yeah, i have a strange ‘thing’ for redheads – most find them creepy-ish, not so much from my perspective). He had great pictures up, is well-travelled, wrote a good profile and has killer arms. Oh yeah, and he’s an inch shorter than I am. Shit. Too bad too as I liked him. So I write a real quick ‘really liked your profile and your pics. too bad I’m not a couple of inches shorter’. What ensued what the most hysterical and entertaining volley of snarky e-mail banter ……ever! Really, really funny. I can tell the guy is smart (and a smart-ass) and funny; I can see he’s cute. Oh, and he’s only 35. Eh, far be it from me to not go after a younger guy.
Anyway, we’ve been text messaging for the past couple of days and he actually called me last night to see if I could meet he and his business partner out for a drink. Dammit, I totally would have but had already made plans. With Finger Foods and his really fun hasher group. Which is an entire other annoying post on its own. I so would have rather met cute, young, short redhead out than go through what I did last night, but I’m just not a flake. If I promise something to someone, I follow through. Unless I decide that I hate them. Or they turn into a douche.
So now I am left to figure out how to garner another invitation out to meet redheaded boy. If nothing else, I know the banter will be awesome!
Oh, and before any of you think I suck, I’ve only been out with Tree Trunk once. I do not, and will not, cease dating other people until I’m sure that I no longer want to see other people. I realize a lot of guys expect that if you go out with them once, then you won’t see anyone else until you’re ‘sure’ that things don’t work out with them, but that’s just not how I roll. C’mon people, look at my track record. I can’t afford to pass up any potential options. 😉
