Free Ride

Disclaimer: I wrote this post on Saturday, and kept it private, but I decided to go ahead and give it to you guys. I'm still on the fence about continuing to blog, although your comments are encouraging. But I'm still thinking about it.
So, without further adieu...


The other day at work, Megan and I made plans to hang out, cuz we like...never get to hang out! And we both had a night off, so we decided to go out. And I told her the whole story about Alyssa's brother, and that I was planning on inviting him. The more the merrier!

Well, Daniel has been writing me on myspace the past couple days. And yesterday he told me in an email that on Thursday night, the fuel line on his Ducati busted, so he had to walk his bike all the way home! Poor guy! So I told him he should come out with with Megan and I, and drink away his sorrows. Lol. And I offered to pick him up.

So I met Megan and her house around 9:15, and then I drove us over to Daniel's to get him. He looked hot, as usual, in his long sleeve jacket, and ripped jeans. He has tats all up his arms, but he never shows them! He always wears long sleeves, which is so damn sexy, for some unknown reason...

Well it just so happened, that one of the bars in midtown was having it's grand reopening, so drinks were free! At least for part of the night anyway...
So we chilled there for about an hour, and had several free shots, and then we headed over to a local patio bar. It was a little too crowded in there for us though, so we just had one drink and then left. We must have gotten an earlier start than we thought because when we got back in the car, it was only 11:30!! So we went over to our shot bar for a couple rounds. Tugg was working, and The Albanian, and they gave us more free shots! Then Jake The Door Guy showed up. I dunno what he was doing there, because he wasn't working, but he asked if he could tag along. I was kinda reluctant, but...introductions were made, and then we all piled back into my (rental) car to head over to Pandora.

Pandora was apparently the place to be! There was a crowd, but not so thick you couldn't move, so that was nice. Plus, I know the bar manager, so he bought us a round. Then we all sat down at one of the booths, that just happened to be next to some private party. It was a bunch of girls, with like...6 bottles of Veuve champagne, and several empty glasses. Well, Megan snatched a glass on the sly and we helped ourselves! Lol. Nobody was any the wiser, because for all they knew, we were part of the party! Haha, so...free champagne for us!!

We danced a little, and Daniel and Jake chatted a bit. It was a total blast! Megan was definitely wasted! Lol. Being married and all, she doesn't get out very much. I stopped drinking early, since I was the DD. But out of the 3 of us, I probably have the highest tolerance anyway, because Daniel was pretty drunk! Apparently, he never does shots. Lol. Megan offered to let us stay at her place for the night, and Daniel was considering calling into work the next day, but decided not to. So I drove him home. And when we got to his apartment, I started to get butterflies in my stomach. I mean, we'd been flirting the whole night! He would put his hand on my leg, or put his arm around me and stuff like that... I mean, he was mostly subtle, but the signals were clear.

So we get to his place, and he tells me he had fun, and thanks for driving him, etc etc... Then we exchange goodbyes... And he gives me a hug! That's it! Just a hug! I mean, I know he's shy and all, and granted, I did make the first move last time... But I was just so disappointed! All I wanted was a kiss. ((sigh))

Perhaps I'm making myself a little too available for him. Because he's always been interested, but I've always just kinda not paid attention to him, ya know? So I guess I'm gonna have to play a little bit of hard to get. Which I hate to do, cuz I hate playing games but...I dunno. It's worth a shot I guess. Maybe he just needs to muster up some courage! Lol.

But he's been emailing me all morning! :) So well see...

omg.......you have NO IDEA how relieved i was to see this. i've been refreshing constantly to see if you've posted something new. so thanks.....:) anyways, I agree that maybe you're making yourself a bit to accessible.....like if he knows he can get you whenever its not a challenge? (ps: i am not calling you a slut. lol) anyways thanks for posting. xxx

ohhh... i'm telling those girls that champagne... lol! anyway, glad to hear that you're not quitting... just yet. hopefully, you won't ever. anyway, first person who commented is right. don't make yourself too accessible. chances are guys will lose interest fast, especially if they know that you're interested. i'm not saying play hard to get because you're old enough to know better that playing hardball is too high school. what you could do is just hedge every now and then to keep him hooked (if you're really that interested in him...) and from what you said about daniel before (about him being a little irresponsible anyway), i'd be extra careful if i were. you might be setting yourself up for a big fall. just enjoy what you have with him for now but stay vigilant as well.

it's good to know that you're having fun at least. take care always.

Have you ever seen the movie Pump Up the Volume w/ Christian Slater? (Yes I am a 80's child!) There's a part in the movie when everyone is gathered around waiting for his show to start, not knowing if it ever will, and then it does and everyone goes crazy...When I saw this post I had that kind of a moment!!! Keep writing Peyton!!!!

omg.......you're back!!!!!! please dont ever leave us again!! lol but seriously i had a crappy wkend knowing we had pissed you off and you were quitting:(

Annie said...

WELCOME BACK P!!!!! We've missed you....
i think you should take ur time with this guy.. Play it cool. Then he will come around.

jacynthe said...

okay first of all: i am so freaking happy that you finally wrote something! you were making me go crazzzy!!!! serioulsy, i was getting so bored here, i felt like there was no need to even bother about turning on the computer ( altought i was still doing it just to check if you would have posted!!!). please dont ever leave us again like this!!!!
then i wuold have to say that i agree with the other bloggers who said that maybe you should try to take it slow with daniel, i mean you did the first move ( and he didnt seem to be rejecting you !! hihihiiiii!!!) let him run a bit. guys usually tell me that they tend to prefer when there is a challenge, they want to feel like they kind of " worked" to get you ( its got something to do with their ego...) so yeah without been distant with him, just maybe try to let him chase you! you do the walking, he does the chasing!!! hihihihihiiiii!!
keep it up!
we love you the way you are!
xoxo

I am so super excited to read another post I peed my pants! Thanx for listening to us readers and coming back! I dunno what I would do without you! I freakin love you! I wanna have your babies! I think I would just DIE if you didn't write your blog anymore! Or I could be committed! You make my life complete! You are the Ying to my Yang! Please don't ever leave us again! I would be so super depressed if you never wrote in your blog again!

Im glad you decided to come back too! I know some of the things we readers comment can be hurtful, but you do write an excellent blog and we are obviously all interested in your life. As for Daniel, I find that some guys are weird about making the first move... Im not sure what the right thing to do is because if you dont make a move, and he never makes a move, nothing could end up happening - this is what happened to me with this guy I was dating. It took a month of dating for him to kiss me.
