Thanks to everyone who gave me their comment on boring guy. I decided to suck it up and go out with him. Because you’re all right.. maybe he’s just bad on the phone. Maybe if I get him out and in his own element, he’ll be more engaging.
So he’s been asking me out and hinting at going out a few times now. Finally, last Monday, I texted him back and said, “So what does your week look like?”
Him: Have to take my car to my dad’s house and have him look at it.
Me: Okay, cool.
Him: Why? What do you have in mind?
Me: Well my schedule is open this week, so I figured that we could finally meet up. Dinner or something.
Him: Yeah, I don’t think that’s a good idea.
Me: Uhhh. Okay? You seemed to think it was a good idea the other times you’ve asked me out.
Him: Yeah, I’m probably giving you mixed signals, huh?
Me: Yes, definately.
Him: Well I just don’t feel liek there’s any chemistry there. And honestly, it sounds like you go out and drink way too much for me.
Okay.. seriously, WHAT? I go out 2-3 times a week. And if I drink, its usually 1 or 2 with dinner with a friend (or a date). I don’t go out and get wasted every week. Bah. My guess is that eI kept mentioning hanging out with friends or whatever and he just assumed that I meant going out and getting trashed. Whatever dude. With no friends.
So the search continues!
Other random side note: I am thinking about taking my blog a little more public. The Des Moines Register has an area of blogs that are al written by readers. So… I’m thinking about moving this blog over there as well. (I would probably post the same posts in both places.) Thoughts on this? I would totally expand my reader base but I would also open myself up to a lot of criticism, too. Let’s face it folks, I can be harsh. But.. everything I write is the truth, I don’t exaggerate.
Once again, I ask for your opinions!
