I think enough time has passed that I can safely blog about the recent happenings of my life…
Specifically the dating aspect of it.
Remember my “Boy, Do Me A Favor, Please” posts?
There was a more specific reason for those posts.
Let’s skip over to the first “date”.
I’m heading over to the coffee shop for my date with ex-marine, 20 minutes before I’m supposed to be there I get a text… “Hey, I’m on my way”
5 minutes later a.k.a. 15 minutes before we’re supposed to meet up… “Hey, I’m inside.”
My first thought: He’s early…
My second thought: OMG. He’s 15 minutes early.
My spiraling thoughts: Oh great. He’s way too excited. 10 minutes is ok but 15 minutes?! O me. What have I gotten myself into.
I walk into the back of the coffee shop because I know this boy is waiting for me in the front.
Correct, I walk up and he’s staring at the front door each time it opens. (Mind you there are glass windows)
Anyway, I say “Hey”
We don’t talk about anything substantial at least not worth blogging about…just yet.
The boy looks like he just woke up so I comment on it…
“Did you just wake up or something?”
Him: What? No, I took a nap earlier and woke up around 6:30.
Blabber blabber blabber
Melanie yawns… to cover up I say something stupid…
“Oh I’m so sorry. It’s probably after 9.”
::Looks at cell phone for time::
My thoughts: oh great what do i say to cover that?
Me: It’s been such a long day for me. I haven’t been home since 7am.
I don’t know what he says but we continue our conversation for 15 more minutes…
It just goes downhill from here…
He asks… When is your birthday?
Me: uhm… in the summer…
Me: In the summer time. I don’t really tell people my birthday. It’s not even on my facebook..
Him: I know. Nothing is on your facebook actually.
Me: What are you a facebook stalker?
Him: No…i don’t jump facebook profiles!
A few minutes pass….
Him: So what kind of music do you like?
Melanie’s thought: OMG this is the most controversial subject anyone can ask on a first date.
After this subject….
Him: So what else is there?
Me: Uhm, what? What do you mean?
Him: You know…what else is there to know about you?
WOW!!!! Here’s this cheat sheet it’s called: All about Melanie. I totally typed it out for you.
stay tuned…there’s more horrendous to come.
Hard to believe, huh?
