How did it go?

*Mostly off-topic blogging follows in the post below. Read at your own risk.

I'm sure you are ALL dying to know how my date went on Tuesday! First let me apologize for not blogging as much. We are so busy at work right now that I've had to cut back on blogging and reading all your amazing blogs!

For those that didn't read my other post, I had a date on Tuesday. Some background information on this date first. My cousin "T" and his mom work together. They thought it would be a great idea to set us up, even though they had never met us! Well actually, my cousin has met me and his mom has met him but him mom never met me and T never met him! :)

Are we all on the same page now? Good! I'll continue.

This all started sometime in the summer, maybe around June. The meddlers (T & his mom) gave him my email (with my permission). He emailed, I emailed, he emailed, I emailed, etc. We became friends on facebook so we can see each other pictures. I went on vacation, he didn't email after that.

Two months went by (maybe 1.5??), I was going to drop the whole thing. I figured he wasn't interested. I saw "T" and she said he told him mom he was going to ask for my number when I got back from vacation. Um, hello?? I've been back for almost two months now! I still wasn't going to email him but decided to give it one last chance. Maybe he figured I wasn't interested.

I emailed, he emailed, I emailed....he finally asked for my number. We set up a date. Now, I'm weird. I wasn't calling it a date. I was calling it a "meeting." I'm just going to meet someone new! It's not a date! I like to play mind games with myself!

Fine, it was a date. Are you happy now? I did see his 1 picture on facebook but he had on a hat and sunglasses and was on vacation. Not too much help. And actually he was shorter and smaller than I had anticipated (pictures are so deceiving). I generally like tall guys but since I'm not shallow, I wasn't going to let that ruin it.

We went to Buca Di Beppo. They serve food family style so we are expected to share. He got a salmon dish and I got gnocchi. I love gnocchi! And it was delicious! I hate fish but did try his salmon and it wasn't bad at all (for salmon).

We talked for a long time. We have good conversation so that's not lacking. We are different and similar on many things. The things we are different on, we are SO different! The things we are similar on, we are SO similar! There's no middle ground! lol. But nothing we are different on is so huge that it would be a deal breaker.

So, what happened? Did I drag this post on long enough? I don't really feel any kind of spark, you know. Very much a "friendship" vibe going on. But it was only 1 "meeting". I guess too, he didn't compliment me at all. I tried to look nice and I got nadda! Geez, what does a girl have to do to get a compliment! lol.

But he did ask if we could go out again. I decided I would give it one more shot. You never know. If I don't feel a "vibe" next time, I'll tell him I don't get that connection with him. I think if nothing else, we could be friends (I know guys love to hear that)!

I will keep you updated.

ATTENTION ALL RUNNERS: The Rock N' Roll Marathon peeps are having a special. Register on 10/10/10 for any Rock N' Roll run between the hours of 10am PST and 10pm PST and you will receive $20 off your entry fee. Awesome! I'm planning on it. Thanks RNR peeps!


  1. Thanks for jotting down the minutes of the meeting and sharing them. I'll have someone from HR put them on the company intranet :p

    Seriously though, was he at all shy or nervous? Maybe that's why he didn't compliment you. Or perhaps he was a little self-conscious and didn't want to sound cheesy. The fact that he asked to see you again means something :)

    Such a shame that you didn't feel a spark, but I think it's great that you're seeing him again to be sure. He could be one of these people that you warm to slowly. At the very least, it's a nice evening out :)

    Be sure to record those minutes too. I'll add them to the monthly newsletter along with the recent sales figures :p

  2. Hahaha! Too funny Mark!

    And yes, you are absolutely right, he is probably a little on the shy side as am I. Thanks for a little male perspective!

  3. Welli say give him another try! You never know!
