Bad First Dates

The Score

There are two different ways on the best way to do this. The first is to go to the neighborhood drug store.
Two days of messaging online which led to me hearing “I need to hear the voice behind that amazing sense of humor and quirky writing style, please call me”.

A four and a half hour telephone conversation which caused resulted in me struggling through the next day, operating on two and a half hours of sleep. The pillow and sun shade became my best friends as I tried to get in a nap at lunch.

Instead, we talked the ENTIRE time and then some.

I can’t emphasis enough how much the word CLICK has been used in our discussions.

So today marks the fourth day, countless hours of phone time from those “I just wanted to hear your voice” sessions in between our lives.

When he said “When can we start dating, I mean let’s get the ball rolling” I laughed. This man didn’t say “let’s hang” or “get together” but, “I’ve got the feeling once we meet, it’s a wrap”.

Mmm hmm.

So we agreed to make our first meeting a brunch date and I let him choose the place. The Four Seasons hotel was his choice. Very nice.

Last night’s conversation concluded at about 3am, although it began with “I won’t be up too late tonight” since we were both tired from a very busy day.

The anticipation is meeting him is insane.

I’m ready for the payoff after countless conversations that left us both saying “how often does this happen!! The disbelief that you can come across a person who is interesting, smart, witty, sarcastic, and more, just like yourself.

So I’m ready for the meet up to match the “in person” showdown with the words and voice I’ve been enjoying all week.

I’m calling this one “The Score”.
