Went on my first date with Mr. Interesting… we were supposed to do pool or bowling or something… but again, just like McMaybe, those previously discussed plans were ignored, to have our first date be a sports bar. Whatever, March Madness was on, so I still enjoyed.
Date itself was great. He was very attractive in person and charismatic. He opened up a lot, which helped me get over my initial shyness. I also got pretty drunk lol, which probably helped with the shyness too. At some point we kissed a few times, we were holding hands… it ended up being about a 5 hour date.
I didn’t feel the 9 years age difference either, and it didn’t seem to matter in terms of physical appearance, despite my baby face. Well, the freakin waitress made a random joke mid-date… I complimented her on her eyes and her bracelet and she mentioned how she was just talking to another waiter about how pretty and nice I was blah blah. She then proceeded to kid about how her Grandma bought her the bracelet. “In the Ukraine, we don’t have sugar daddies, we have grandmas…” We all laughed, and it could’ve been in my head, but I did have a “what the fuck?” moment. Like did this bish just have a full conversation about me with another waiter and then come test the waters to see if I was some sort of sugar baby or something? I got over it.
So why is it, that after a great date and budding feelings… that I am now only being contacted by him when there is potential to make plans/meet up? Periodically texting to continue getting to know him and.. radio silence. But he can respond at the speed of light when we are discussing the topic “Are you free on Saturday?” Annoying.
I haven’t met up with him after the first date, but it looks as if I’m just a matter of convenience. I’m cancelling Mr. Interesting until further notice.
Had a wonderful photoshoot this week with a great photographer I’m looking forward to the results!
Also on set, was a handsome model who I ended up chatting with via phone a few days later. When the time finally came to address our chemistry, I said I was a relationship kind of gal, and he said he’s a polygamous kinda of guy. He wants multiple wives in the future. -_- Good for him, yay for honesty, but uhhh that’s gonna be a no for me dawg.
Also found out scrollmate has a whole ass wife. Welp. That’ll be my first and last IG crush too.
So on the love life front, I have McMaybe still floating around in the abyss, and a potential new development with a man who’s 9 years older than me. He came out of nowhere with two back-to-back (yesterday and today) 2-hour phone conversations… hellllo Mr. Interesting!
Boom! Nickname. That was easy.
The 9 year age gap is a first for me, I’ve remained in a 2 year age radius up till now. But he’s cool and a gentleman, so I’m with it. I like how he is communicative, sure of himself, and already seems to have a clear idea of where his career is headed. I admire that and feel like I can learn from him. I mean McMaybe has all these things too…. I’ll just see how Mr. Interesting’s first date goes next week.
So yes, I’m back on the dating scene again (I guess) feeling more “man crazy” than ever… I really don’t understand how because I made it a point to delete my dating apps and focus on myself. Life has a greatttt sense of humor.
If I make it a point not to focus on my career will the same logic apply? Will all these opportunities just come rushing in? HA!
Went over to McMaybe’s apartment. Said he was just going to order pizza because it was easy. I get there, and this man ordered 3 slices. Two for him and one for me.
I looked at him like he was crazy. I was just so confused, trying to resist the urge to laugh, thinking to myself, who says they’re going to order pizza and then orders slices?
He who orders pizza slices for delivery instead of a whole pie, cannot be trusted.
I’m demoting McDreamy back down to McMaybe again… maybe this is just a force. I give up.
Back to “doing me.”
Met another extremely talented photographer over the weekend, who has also been bit by the music bug. Looks promising for a fantastic collaboration. =)
McMaybe is now McDreamy again. Date night #2 is on for tonight.
