A date in Target...

What made the date with the Cable Guy different and fun?  I was discussing with him how I love doing laundry.  I don't know what it is, the process is very soothing to me.  I was explaining how I only like one detergent, Tide with Febreeze- it has a purple cap.  The smell of the detergent, folding warm laundry right out of the dryer, love it!

I explained,"Target is right across the way, why don't we go there and just walk around?"  We had so much fun.  We walked the isles, avoided the drug store section for obvious reasons, and laughed at some of the items on display.

This said a lot about him.  I actually like when a guy just goes with it, unplanned.  Spontaneous is romantic.  Planned or cliche date activities can really get boring.  Another thing I liked, he carried the detergent for me.  This may seem really small and unimportant, but it's the little things that really matter to me.  Chivalry is not dead.

The Cable Guy..

I have a first date tomorrow afternoon with the Cable Guy.  We are just meeting for a drink.  What I like most about him is he has a great sense of humor.  He is understanding my sarcasm, and has witty comebacks.  His profile reads he is a widower, and I don't plan on asking him the story.  I believe this would be disrespectful.  I don't believe in talking about exes on dates, but does this go for exes whom have passed away?  This is going to be an interesting date.

To keep notes, or not to keep notes....

When emailing/texting/speaking to new prospects, should a girl keep notes on each guy so she doesn't get confused?  Absolutely.  One evening last year I was speaking to two different guys in one night.  When I said good night to the second guy, I said the wrong name.  He said,"That was the last guy you spoke to tonight."(no laughter)  What did I learn from this scenario?

A) Never talk to more than one guy in one night.
B) Schedule the phone dates in advance.  Example:  "Call me Wednesday night at 8."
C) Keep brief notes on the background and name of each guy.  I even create a code name for each, as shown in previous blogs.

When a guy tapers off, I cross them off my list, and look to add on another one.  Peace, love, and kisses. :)

Sawyer from Lost....HOT...


The Secret...totally works...


When they want your cell number with no conversation...

When men go straight for the cell phone number, they only want one thing.  Also, if you they ask you out for that same exact evening, this also indicates they want one thing.  What I am expecting a nice guy to do is ask questions, talk about himself in a positive way, and feel out any suggestions for a date.

Nice guys will be patient, and not rush any aspect of the dating process.  Woman create the pace, and are in control of the situation.  If it does get to the point of speaking on the phone, I will keep the conversation brief.  After fifteen minutes, I will say I have to go walk my dog.

Asking questions is so important during the email process, but not too much.  I like to pass along 3 or 4 emails, then if he seems normal, I give my number to him.  If too much is said, nothing is left for the date.

Dating break....over

Ok, I have been dating one guy for six months.  We are both moving on.   I am about to sign up again on Match, getting ready to ride the dating cycle again.  I am rethinking my profile and pictures at this point.  I am ready to write about my new adventures.  People actually love hearing my stories.   I am glad to keep track of the fun dates that go astray.  As I speak to fellow singles, I have realized I am definitely not alone.  I know what I want, so this makes my search a little easier.  This sounds lame, but my guy is going to have to be a religious dog lover.  The end.
