My week in dating – sheesh what a busy one. But I’m down to two girls now (three if I count the long-distance potential of Mirror Image).
My week kicked off on Monday evening with a date with The Sergeant. Not my sort of thing if I am honest. She was interesting and we were into a lot of the same things. But… I found her generally too serious as a person. She also shook my hand – which I find too cold for a date. Luckily I had already leaned in for the obligatory kiss on the cheek. She had a sense of humour but for most of the date had a stony face.
She was also clearly looking for an alpha male – which I’m certainly not and don’t intend to be. She seemed to want me to decide everything including what she was to drink. Working in a military environment she is probably used to being told what to do all the time but outside of work, no thanks. I had too many reservations there so didn’t ask for a second date. As she’s unlikely to ask me, clearly it isn’t going to happen.
I was expecting this weekend to meet the girl who messaged me last weekend (Miss Manic). However, she hasn’t been online to read my “fancy meeting up this weekend?” message so that hasn’t happened.
What I did do though was meet Indiechick for a second date this last Friday night. This was a highly enjoyable date. We had a laugh, enjoyed a nice curry and got to know each other a little better. She told me that she is twice divorced. Though this might put off some men, it didn’t bother me and she gave me a few more details about both marriages. It also didn’t bother her that I’m back living with family – so that was an obstacle over for me. We also regaled each other with stories of past dates. Generally, the date went as well as can be expected.
She is definitely a slow mover – understandable with two failed marriages and we are definitely meeting up again 🙂
Not much else to say but everything else seems to be ticking along quite nicely.
