You remember, this guy from last week. The one that bugged the shit out of me with his big words used in the wrong context. The one that I never should have written back to, but was bored and was dying to know if he was as big a tool as I initially thought. We exchanged e-mails for the past few days. His waffled back and forth between amusing, arrogant, retarded and annoying. This is the guy that doesn’t drink and felt the need to remind me multiple times of that sad fact. The guy that used ridiculous words out of context. The guy that claimed he did this out of insecurity and nervousness. Anyway, he didn’t have his kids today so asked me to meet up. Eh, what the hell, I had some time to kill so I went. I almost didn’t. I certainly wasn’t in the right frame of mind to be anywhere near civil to someone who’s sole purpose seemed to be to talk down to others. So we met up at a gourmet grocery/cafe near my house. He did earn a couple of bonus points for picking somewhere near my house. I wore a navy mini, silver flats (i couldn’t remember how tall he was) and a bright pink off the shoulder top. That showed 1.5 of my tattoos in all their glory. I NEVER wear anything that I shows my tattoos when I 1st meet someone. That’s how much I didn’t give a shit about what this guy thought. I figured maybe my ‘ink’ would scare him away. Can you even call lame little tattoos ‘ink’ though? Sort of like calling a moped a hog. But I digress.
So I got there early and was screwing around on my phone when I see him approaching and what do you know? He was cuter than his pics. Okay, that’s good at least. We wander around the market for a while before parking it outside at a table. The weather was gorgeous today! Anyway we start talking. And talking. And talking. And he’s funny, and charming and absolutely a bazillion times better in person than ‘on paper’. We ended up staying for 3.5 hours. Just talking. He’s a nice guy. I do think he uses his ridiculous vocabulary as a defense mechanism, so I can’t hold that against him as I use sarcasm much the same way. Yes, I know, you didn’t realize I was sarcastic, right? 😉
Anyway, he was a little nervous at the end and wasn’t sure ‘how this all works’ as I’m only the 4th person he’s met online and apparently the 1st one that he cared to see again. As we had talked about my business earlier and how no one ever cooks for me, he asked me if he could make me dinner on Wednesday. Now, I’m no dummy. I know what that usually means. I am 500% positive that’s not what he meant. I think he just wants to be nice and show me that he can cook and take pity on the poor gal that has to cook for herself all the time. Too bad I would never go to someone’s house that I just met off the internet. Until now. I’m going. We just got along. I did clarify that by his inviting me over for dinner did not mean that I would be dessert and he looked absolutely thrown off that I would even think that. I think I can trust him to be a nice guy. I think I actually made him a little nervous.
Anyway, it ended with a nice hug and him totally obsessing over what to make for me. Cute, right? This one has totally caught me off guard. I honestly did not think there would be one single thing that I liked about him and really, I couldn’t find much wrong in person (and you know I tried). We had a lot in common. I hate to say it, but I am cautiously optimistic about him. (until we meet on Wednesday and I decide that he totally sucks)
Aside from one glaring red flag that I didn’t get clarification on (as I really didn’t want to know). I don’t think he’s technically divorced yet. 😦 And he’s only been split from his wife for 7 months. And she’s the one that asked for the divorce. And I’m not positive that he’s over her ……… believe you me, I will get clarification on Wednesday. I will not over think this one and I will just smile at the thought that someone is nice enough to want to cook dinner for me!
