Ok so I did something in a moment of desperation. Something...uncharacteristic of me. Something maybe a little foolish, and yet...I don't regret it!
I joined a dating website. Lol. I know, stupid, right?? But I was starting to think you know, I'm not meeting any decent guys out in Houston, and the ones I think are decent, turn out to be douchebags who don't want relationships. So I figured, where better to find relationship material than someplace where other people are looking for the same things I am! So I signed up for like 1 month, just to see what would happen.
And I actually met a cute, decent guy! And we've been chatting back and forth for the past couple days. His name is Brady, he just moved here from Dallas where he was going to school. He's a financial analyst, but he says he doesn't want me to think of him as "that boring cubical guy". He does a lot of out-doorsy type stuff, and he's 6'4"!!!! Oh, and did I mention he's really good looking?? I mean, we haven't met in person or anything but he has like 7 pictures up, and he looks cute in all of them. The only setback is he's 23. But that's not like a huge age gap or anything, so maybe he'll be more mature than most 23-year-olds. Better yet, here's hoping he's more mature than most 27-year-olds. Ugh...
So anyways, today he gave me his phone number, but I didn't call him. I decided to wait it out. So he emailed me again, and asked for my number, and I gave it to him. But I don't think he's checked his messages yet, so maybe I'll hear from him tomorrow.
But I'm keeping it really...chill. Not trying to jump the gun or anything. And I'm gonna make sure when we meet, it's with a group.
I hung out with Bethany all day yesterday and today. She's the only person I've confided in about my online dating scheme. Lol. She teased me of course, but when I told her about Brady and showed her his picture, she agreed, he might be a good one!
Thank God for Bethany! She and I just...click. You know? I mean I really get her, and she really gets me, so there's no need for any pretenses. It's nice. Kind of a relief from the day-to-day actually.
Other than the online thing, I actually met someone last night! He's a friend of Tug's, and we were all out together at an Irish pub last night. Tug told me his friend thought I was hot, and then Bethany introduced us. He's a minor league baseball player, slated to play for the Astros in a year or 2 (which is freakin' awesome cuz I love baseball!), and he's really sweet, and kinda quiet. He's cute too, but unfortunately, like all baseball players, he dips. Ew. But...I guess I'll worry about that later. I gave him my number, and he actually called me today!
We just got off the phone a couple minutes ago actually, and he told me he's gonna be out of town for the week (games in Dallas and Arkansas), but that he wants to take me out to dinner when he gets back. So I said I would love to, and we talked for a little bit before exchanging goodbyes.
So the past couple days have been somewhat exciting! I'm actually able to go for almost a half a day without thinking about Daniel. I think I only really thought about him like 2 or 3 times today. And it was brief, and it didn't make me get too sad. I just keep busy and keep distracted. And I'm very interested in these 2 guys! I'm just gonna date, and try to take things slow, not put all my eggs in one basket, yada yada...
I joined a softball team too. Have I mentioned that?? Brady wants to come to the batting cages with me and "teach me how to hit home-runs." :)
And I just might let him!
Although, maybe Baseball Guy would be better suited for that lesson...
P.S. Does anyone read Bedroom Blog?? If you do, have any of you noticed that all the things that recently happened to me, are now happening to K.?? Is that weird or what?? You know, NB being an early-intense-relationship guy?? SOOOO Daniel! And I mean...she's fictional!
