Made it on a 2nd date! Not with the same guy from date number 1 (Bro Country) but I would have probably had a more romantic time. Date number 2 we'll call him Weed Man (WM). I'm calling him Weed Man because he made it very clear on his profile he was in the weed business. Now, I'm not big on weed anything, but he was cute enough to at least meet. And remember, I'm trying to be more open minded... ESPECIALLY to the people who are just willing to meet right away!
Weed man and I met after I was done scouting a house and I was sweating balls. It was rainy yesterday but SUPER muggy! I had my winter outfit on but was pitting out big time. lol. In case you were wondering all that. ;) We met at Bar of the Gods. Had one drink there, played some pool (seems to be a recurring theme) and had good conversation. I liked him as a person right away. But just as fast as I liked him as a person, I wasn't feeling it romantically. And I could tell that he was, so it was a little awkward.
The date wasn't bad enough that I was trying to leave, but it wasn't good enough to want to stay. I WAS hungry though, so was down for some food with him. Oh and this time date, when we ordered our first drinks he said, "This one's on me." Which I thought was nice, but that also definitely implies that next ones on you. Totally fine. And I actually got his next drink and the meal we split. If I was feeling him though, I might have been a little disappointed that he wasn't treating me or courting me. I'm a little old school in that sense where for at least the first few dates I want to be courted.
Anyway, I used the out that I should probably get back home to my puppy. I stopped drinking at the first drink. He walked me to my car and grabbed me by the arm and tried to snuggle in. It felt almost like how a little child would snuggle up, which was not manly at all. Also, he was way smaller in person than he appeared online. Profile said he was 5'11" which is about the shortest I want to date (always exceptions to the rule to all you short awesome dudes out there lol)... but I'm pretty sure that was a stretch on his profile. He felt more like 5'9". SMH. Also, he was really scronny. I need a man with a little meat to dem bones!
So as he walked me to my car he was already talking about how fun our next date was going to be, which I made no indication that I was on board. I think he just assumed it. But I didn't want to be rude. It's super hard to let someone down when you can tell they're really excited and when they don't think that's going to happen.
We got to my car and he hugged me and I could tell he was going to go in for the kiss so I turned my cheek and we did the awkward he's trying to kiss me but please miss me dance. Then he looked deep into my eyes and there was no avoiding it.... he was going in. lol. Shoot! So I just gave him the ol' mom peck. ha ha. He texted me later that night about what an amazing time he had. I felt then was the best moment to tell him I had a nice time but not in a romantic way. Crickets. Oh well. On to the next!
And by next, I mean literally right now. Date #3... I'm on a roll. Wish me luck! And don't worry, I still have my 2nd date with Bro Country tomorrow and I'm excited about it! :)
