I had to share....

I'm dying to tell someone but it's too early to call my friends so I'll share with my friends here. I may have met someone. Yesterday I volunteered for a school field trip to Ellis Island. These two cute 10 yr old girls buddied up with me. All the volunteers were from my company and this one guy came over and asked if he could buddy with us since there weren't any kids left to buddy. (a lot of kids slept in so we ended up with more volunteers than needed, oh well.) So it was the 4 of us, on the ferry, touring Ellis Island, having lunch together, etc. Anyway after it was over, he and I spent the day together. He lives in the city so he played tour guide. We walked all along Battery Park, around some historic sites of downtown, then walked across Brooklyn Bridge to have pizza at this really yummy place. Now, I have proof from some other jerks that a guy will spend the day with me and never call back so that might happen here. But he did ask what my last name was so he'd recognize my name in the emails that will circulate after this trip. (the organizer took lots of pictures and will email everyone.) He works in my office which is in CT so he has one heck of a commute. Anyway I had a great time, he's fun to talk to, if I never hear from him again or if nothing but friends comes of this, that's ok. But I'm still having fun playing around with the possibility in my head.

I sent him an email yesterday and he replied later in the day. I replied again this morning so maybe we'll start an email chain going, not sure. I doubt he'd stop by my desk. I searched his profile on our database and about died. He's Executive Director. That's very big here. He's not going to frivolously waste his time emailing or coming to my desk to chat. But that's ok. I've installed a deadline. If there's no get together planned by end of Sept, I'm giving up the ghost and moving on. He's flying to Mexico next week for business so who knows when I'll see him next. But fingers crossed y'all!! I like him and it's gonna sting if he doesn't return the affection. My coworker knows someone who works on his floor (he's on 7, I'm on 10) and it's sOo tempting to just talk a walk. Not gonna, need to be strong! *sigh*

I'm holding the hope with you girl!! lol Wowwwwwww... an Executive Director.. I think that both of you volunteering to go to Ellis Island with the kids proves what great hearts you both have, and hopefully.. they can join together.

*fingers crossed for you* The good thing is he returned the email. hehehe

Well I did not hear from him all day yesterday and still all day today. I'm guessing he is just not interested. Kinda frustrated that I initiated contact but at least it got me here quicker, knowing he couldn't give a flip about keeping contact going with me. I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong, what is so unattractive about me that men don't want to date. It can't be solely on them, I've been on so many first dates that I'm getting sick of the whole process. I give up! I'm not meant to find a man. *sigh*

Hey, don't get frustrated yet. You never know. There's still a chance you'll hear from him. And even if you don't it doesn't mean that there's something wrong with you. (I do know the feeling though - I'm a one-date wonder myself).

Maybe he has been really busy and hasn't been able to check his email.. I am sorry girl.. Just don't feel bad about yourself!! That is not a good thing to do. If you don't think positive about yourself.. noone will. Good luck, and I hope that you do find happiness.
