Babysitting. On a School Night No Less April 26, 2011

Alright, enough about peeps intentionally trying to make me feel bad while apparently deluding themselves into thinking otherwise.  I now return you to our regularly scheduled program.  Me!  And my delusions.  My delusions that I can actually pull off going out with someone who missed the entire one hit wonder generation of my beloved 80s music (or was at least too young to realize what he was missing).

Tonight is my hot date with the 6’2″ redheaded 30 year old.  Aside from 2 short e-mails off of match and countless short text messages, I’ve never spoken to him on the phone.  Is it wrong for me to be concerned that he might have a voice like Howdy Doody? 

You know how I like to have my dates choose the location for our 1st meeting (which is great for me as there is usually not a 2nd) 😉 .  It’s just how I roll.  I like to see what they select.  As  he’s new to town, he admitted, after offering to pick a place, that he really doesn’t know many places.  I’m going to cut him some slack.  He’s young.  Just as I might be a tad concerned about picking the ‘wrong’ place, all that really matters in the end is that wherever we go makes good drinks. 

I gave him a choice of 3 places.  1 I really like (click, you should be familiar), 1 I’m indifferent to, and 1 I’m not so fond of.  Yes, I know, a ridiculous little test.  In the end though, I’ve been to all 3 places, they all make decent martini’s, they all have patios, they would all be ‘good’ locations for trying to get to know someone.  It’s just that one is better than the others.  Lucky him.  He chose my favorite.  We’re meeting at 6.

I’m not sure what to wear.  Of course heels will be involved as he’s 6’2″ and I don’t get to wear my beloved heels all that much.  I can’t dress too, er, appealing as he is 30 for heaven’s sake.  What if he thinks I look like his mom?  Oh holy hell, that just creeped me out.  Honestly, I do hope that we get along and that I like him.  Sure, I hope that he likes me as well, but as we all know, I’m the one that never seems to like anyone past a 1st meeting.

And please everyone; I beg of you this one thing.  Just one.  I don’t ask for much, but this one could be a deal breaker for me.  No, not that his mom doesn’t drop him off at the bar.  No, not that the waitress doesn’t compliment me on what great manners my ‘son’ has.  Not even that he wears something other than tennis shoes and cargo shorts.  Please, for the love of god, do NOT have him declare that he’s an Alpha Male. 😉

    I would like to wish you good luck on your date tonight :). If you are not sure what to wear, do what I do… jeans, a nice top and your favorite heels… with that combo, you just can’t go wrong (my safety net.. :p ) plus you would NEVER be mistaken for his mom.

    Have a wonderful time tonight!!

    Ooh…finally. I’ve been curious about Big Red ever since you first mentioned him. I hope he makes no claim of Alpha authority…and that he finds you way hotter than anyone his own age…and that he’s a gentleman…funny, smart, hard-working, good-kisser, etc.

    here’s hoping ……….. that he has a curfew past 9pm 😉

    and there is NO WAY i’m going in for a kiss unless he makes the 1st move….. or I’m drunk

  4. Surrey gal Says:

    He passed the test, that’s a very good sign! I also always make those silly little tests, so I know exactly what you mean 🙂 Good luck, can’t wait to read all about it!

    • Grey Goose, Dirty Says:

      fingers crossed i don’t scare the crap out of him 😉

      he’s actually very sweet – just texted me that he was nervous and then corrected himself to say that he was excited …… 🙂

  5. Of course he’s nervous. It’s his first date. I wonder if he’ll bring you a corsage 😉 Have fun and drink one for me!

  6. Hey – you’re not taking him to “our” place, are you? The place of varied accents?

    • Grey Goose, Dirty Says:

      uhm, er, no of course not! we’ll be out on the patio ….. i don’t think you and I ever made it outside until the end of the night. when they kicked us out.

      you know you’ll always be my #1 date of choice!

    Hey GG,

    Long time/first time.. a transplant from Kat’s blog to yours..

    My only comment is that if you ever meet someone who has to CLAIM they are an “Alpha Male” then they probably arent.

    Real ALpha’s are easily identifiable, and dont need tto to shout it from the roof tops. They are identified by their actions 😉

    • Grey Goose, Dirty Says:

      Hey Nick! thanks for stopping by! I love Kat’s blog.

      Don’t I know it about not needing to announce it. The last guy I went out with made a point of telling me umpteen times. In between his multitudes of needy texts. 😉

  8. You only live once, enjoy your night! Don’t forget to tell us all about it (leave in all the juicy bits!!!).

    • Grey Goose, Dirty Says:

      damn it Paula – there weren’t any juicy bits – sorry to disappoint (you and me both) …….. i did have a better time than you apparently did in Hawaii though :-X
