Hmmmm Online Dating

Photo completely unrelated to post, but you can follow me on Instagram here

Online dating is a very interesting animal, people. 

When you're on Match or Tinder (Yup, doing both at once. (Yes, yes, I know don't jump to those Tinder conclusions, yo. You know I'm not like that.)) and it's great! You start to really hit it off and might even take it to the next level. You know, instead of messaging in the app you might begin texting or even talking on the phone. Which is exactly what I've been doing with P, the Handsome Landscaping Chap. Seriously, this guy is awesome and kinda blowing all of the other guys out of the water -- See update to this post
The only thing is it's weird because you can really hit it off and begin thinking about one guy all the time, but other gents will still message you and ask you on dates, and really you have no good reason to say "no" because you and the phone-talking-gentleman aren't a real couple. 
So you are talking to other gents and telling yourself that it's ok because nothing is official or serious just yet, although there's that potential and connection with phone-talking-gentleman which is significantly greater than the connection with the other gents. But whatevs, cause it's online dating, right? 
And then, and THEN you decide to go back on the app to look at an adorable photo of phone-talking-gentleman, you know, P, the Landscaping Chap, because he's just so darn cute, and although you've heard his voice so many times, you can't actually wait to match the voice with his face...in person.

And then you see it: Active 14 minutes ago.

And your little heart sinks and your stomach drops because you've been texting and talking on the phone so you haven't talked to him on the app in a week...

But you've been talking to other guys on there too and really you haven't met in person yet, so you can't have any expectations, right?

Gah! All I'm saying is, it's an animal. A really fierce one. Online dating.

The good news is, guys, I am meeting P, the Landscaping Chap, tonight for dinner. And I'm kinda really excited. Because although I've been talking to other guys too, well, they just don't compare.
Team P, guys, Team P.

Hmmmm...it will be very interesting once one of these gents actually sticks around and I finally tell them about this blog. 
Errrr yes, I have a blog. Errrrr nope, yep, everyone has known about you since the beginning. Surprise!

P.S. Film Fest Fella and I went out for coffee on Tuesday night. It was the most awkward. Lots of me talking. I would pause every once in a while to let him say something or ask a question aannnddd he never picked up on it. Very nice gent, just very very awkward.

Match Date One


I just thought I would give a little update. Remember when I mentioned in this post that I had joined Match? Welllll I had my first date last Thursday. We had some great messages before the date and was he cute! One of those "errrr...is this guy really messaging me??" kinda things. 
We ended up going to Oscar's on Pierce. Errrr...well after we both ended up at two different burger joints... it was very confusing for both of us. Anywho, he was very nice and easy to talk to. And YES he was so cute. However, I felt like I had been talking to my brother. There was just nothing there. Nothing. So will there be a second date. Mmmmm probably not. 

On to the next one, folks. On to the next one.

I have two dates set up for this week. Tuesday is coffee with an adorable gent who's in film--he had two movies at the MKE Film Fest. Uhhh I know-that is pretty freakin' bangin'.
And tonight I have a drinks with a very handsome chap who apprentices his father's landscaping business. 
I am really really excited for both of them.

I apologize for the blurry outfit photo above. Anthony tried to get a few photos of me before Match Date Number One, however, the lighting was less than favorable.

Also, I might or might not be wearing that outfit for drinks tonight. #SorryNotSorry.

On Sundays...Downtown Books and an update


Hey! So news lately! I found a really awesome bookstore with my friend Bryan a couple weeks ago. By a couple of weeks ago, I really mean a couple months ago, but, you know...
Seriously rows and rows of any book you could imagine. The gentlemen who work there know exactly what they have at all times. I was looking for some classics that I read in highschool. I asked the rather helpful man behind the counter for Fahrenheit 451 and when I turned around the other gentleman was handing the last copy out to me. Uhhhh talk about the coolest guys ever. And THE SMELL. Guys, the smell. I love that smell of old books and this place is just one big shop of stories and the old book smell. You can find them here.

I ended up buying four books for around $15 so uhh love it.
Let's be real though, I'm rereading Harry Potter and I'm just starting book two soooo it might be a while until I can dig into the ones I bought.

In other news, I joined Match.com so that will be fun! Three months. I'll give it three months.
Wish me luck AND so many awesome first date stories!

Miss you, love you, and the like. :)
