My Date

Just a quick lil update b/c I just realize I never posted about how my date went. It went ok enough, but the chemistry just wasn't there for me. He's a nice enough guy, just a little strange, and not exactly my type. We just went out for dinner, but he wanted to go do something else afterwards and I just wanted to get home and away from him...so I made up some excuse and headed for Starbucks (I needed it after an hour with him lol!). But now, he really likes me, he told me its the first meaningful date he ever had and he wants to go out again sometime and everything...apparrantly I made a huge impression on him lol. So now I don't know what to do...my friend said I should just email him. I'm gonna give it till Monday and see what happens, then I'll decide what to do. Hope everyone is having a great holiday!! I'm off to my neighbors to lounge in the pool alllll day :D

Hi Lindsay,

Sorry to hear that the date didn't go the way you wanted it or better said that the guy just wasn't right. Please be honest with him now and let him know what you feel or not feel. It's always bad when two people do not have the same impression of a first date but it could get worse if you would mislead him now and somehow give him hope for another date which will probably not come. Better hurt him a little now by telling the truth about the missing chemistry than hurt him a lot after a while when he is more deeply in the whole story. Just imagine you would be in his shoes and how you would like to be treated then.

Oh, and enjoy your day at the pool! I am pretty jealous now, I am in Germany, we do not have the day off and it's definitely no pool weather in Cologne, rainy and too cold for this time of the year.

Happy holiday to you and all the other Americans out there!

Just send him an email that says "Thanks again for dinner - I enjoyed our conversation but don't believe we have enough in common to make it worthwhile to pursue anything. All the best to you - "

Oh, Linds...sorry he was weird. You made me laugh though. Why is he weird? Maybe he is just lonely and was nervous cause your so pretty. Some boys do get nervous around pretty girls. Let him down easy girl. You just got em lined up dont you. So, does this mean my Tn boy is still in the game? lol Well, glad you got some pool time. I got some of that today, between watching two boys try to drown themselves all day acting like fish, and trying not to burn from all the sun exposure, I think I got some sit time. I dont know, my nose looks like a cherry tomato. lol

Well, sorry the guy wasnt what you expected. Just proves that people can be differnt on line and then when you meet. Goodluck and I hope he doesnt bug you too much. Let him know

you arent looking for anything serious and maybe that will get him.
