Time for a New Week

Mon, 11-26-2012 - 2:58pm

Well its Monday...again and its been a long wonderful weekend. I hope everyone had a nice, fun, relaxing weekend. I went to the mall on Black Friday and I got some really good deals. I got a coat and a dress for $40 each. I got some makeup and an eye shadow, but that wasn't on sale. I had a really fun time, but now its time to get back to the bump and grind of a new week, meaing its time to swim all the food off and hit the gym, which isn't very appealing to me today. LOL!!! But I'm going anyways. I've not been in 2 weeks. I got sick the week before Thanksgiving so I just decided to take all last week off, and its been nice not to jump into a cold pool. Its heated, but it doesn't always feel that.

So how was your weekend?

Anyone brave the stores and crowds?

What's on your agenda for this week?

Well at least he said he was sorry for being rude and then being late.

 I don't know what to say about how to go about telling him to wear something more manly scent.

It can get pretty crowded, but I manage. Did you stay shut in by choice?

And OMG he deleted his profile!  Ages ago we had the awkward talk about how we've been dating and that kind of comes with the territory until both parties agree to be exclusive.  So even though we were both interested in getting to know each other we were clear that interest alone doesn't make you a couple.  I mean I knew he was into me and we haven't decided to be exclusive, but my goodness deleting his profile?  He had to have done that within the last 2 days because that was the last time I had logged in and I still saw it there.  Wow.  I guess I figured this wouldn't happen until later on and he certainly didn't mention it to me or ask me if I'm deleting mine.  Hmmm.

Well things with the new guy seem to be going ok.  We had a bit of a tiff this week before our date last night and I found myself so annoyed I nearly cancelled our date.  I won't hash out the details, but in a nutshell he said several somethings to me about me that were flat out mean and really just uncalled for.  So I pointed them out to him, fully expecting him to do what most guys do and swear I was overreacting and tell me to get over it.  And he didn't do that at all.  Instead he apologized and explained that he should have thought first before opening his mouth and that is an issue he has been working really hard on because it has cost him friends and relationships in the past.  Then he went on to in a more eloquent fashion explain what he was trying to express that came out wrong before.  Ummm did that really just happen?  Because that's not at all what I was anticipating, but it was nice to actually have him really talk about it rather than just try to blow it off.

So since we reached a positive point our date went forward and then we had another hiccup.  Since we live 30 minutes apart we've been picking hang out places halfway, which has been fine.  So we had a plan and an agreed meeting time, yet he was 30 minutes late.  30 minutes late!  I'm not sure if that was just a fluke or him being passive aggressive.  He did call and say that he just lost track of time, was sorry, and was on his way but still.  I opted to just let it go when he arrived an apologized again, but I'm still thinking it was weird.  We did end up having a nice time after all of that though. 

Oh and his perfume seriously has to go.  We're sitting at the table and when the waitress brings our meal she starts gushing about how great that perfume is....and she's looking right at me!  I wasn't wearing perfume.  In fact I wasn't wearing a scent of any kind at all.  Of course a girl would notice it and want to know what it was because its women's perfume!  But a guy wearing it is just weird.  Me thinks I'll have to hint at a more manly scent being very appealing and hope he switches.

That's great!!! Just think here pretty soon, all the new spring clothes will be coming out and it would be a good time to get some new clothes then. I hope everything works out for you and your new man turns into a life long love and hopefully a marriage mate, if you're thinking along those lines. I'm happy for you!!! I hope you don't get yourself overloaded with all you have going on this week.

My weekend was great actually.  I stuck to my no shopping rule and my budget is thanking me lol.  I did however end up going on not just one, but two dates with that guy I mentioned.  He's absolutely wonderful and I'm leaning toward just focusing on him.  It probably really helped that we spent a few weeks talking on the phone for hours on end before actually meeting.  I know I said I should probably date around and see what's out there, but how long does one really need to do that?  Who knows.  I've been single for about a year and have done plenty of looking around and there hasn't been much to see until now.  Anyway we have another date midweek and I hinted at the possibility of having free time for him this weekend. 

I was supposed to go on a date with a completely different guy this weekend, but that ended up not working out and I'll admit my interest in him is fading rapidly.  I get the feeling that he's trying to date because he's bored, not because he wants to actually have a relationship that could lead to a lifetime commitment.  Regardless I did reschedule our date for later this week, so we'll see.

Aside from dating I'll spend a chunk of the week working on 2 papers, a presentation, and an exam for school.  And then there's the usual work and volunteer stuff.
