what’s this, a dating blog or something?
Finally, I can write about dating (kinda) again…
So, I made it through all the freakin’ steps with guy #1 on e-harmony. We spoke on the phone Sunday night for about 30 mins. The conversation was okay. Wasn’t great, wasn’t horrible. After 25 mins of talking about jobs, music, travel, I was kinda done. Not bored talking to him, but just started to feel weird talking for too long on the phone with someone I don’t know at all. Plus, I’m not really a fan of talking on the phone. I’d much rather talk face to face, especially in the early stages when trying to develop a rapport and connection with the person. At a lull in the conversation, I said that I’d let him go and get on with his night. I actually had some stuff to do (my online class stuff) so I kinda wanted to get off the phone, too.
So, anyways, this morning I get an email from him saying that he doesn’t think that I’m interested in him and he isn’t sure what I am looking for and that he wishes me luck. Umm, OK, WTF? We were supposed to meet for drinks this coming Thursday. I haven’t replied to him yet, but I think letting this one go is the wise choice here. As I wasn’t too thrilled about him anyway, I don’t really feel at a loss (he came across as a little too meat-heady-wanna-be-rockstar for me online, then talking to him confirmed that).
Elsewhere, on e-harm, I got to the messaging part with guy #2. He seems more down-to-earth. He works in academia and moved up here recently from Baltimore. From his pictures, he’s not bad-looking and looks like one of those nice guys, someone I might not have looked at during previous online dating endeavors or not really paid attention to at a bar (I know, I’m a shallow bitch). Seems like a really nice guy, too, from his messages. A huge plus that he uses proper grammar and punctuation. Couldn’t say the same for #1. At. All.
I sent questions to one guy (#3) and he emailed me (skipping the steps) and asked if I wanted to chat on the phone. I said okay and gave him my number. Not sure that was wise, but eh, whatever. He was really cute, so I gave him a pass with this. Hopefully, it’s not just for a quick hookup or phone sex or anything like that.
I’ll keep you guys posted as things go down.
