dating report card for January

I didn't talk about it very much, for fear of offending the gay dating gods. I used phrases like "hung out" with my close friends; I told no one at work.

It didn't matter. It got jinxed anyway.

I met a cute guy in January and we went out twice. Yes, it originated on a gay hook-up site. No, I did not sleep with him. Yes, he is younger (nine years).

Things to be grateful for: he exposed me to the insane brilliance of Robot Chicken. He didn't leave me hanging like the last guy; rather, he did let me know what was going on (eventually).

What was going on? He had started to "see someone." I know this might sound very boil-your-pet-rabbit, but dude... I thought that's what we were kind of starting to do.

Oh well. Final report: 100% increase in dates over last time! (October 2006, one date. January 2007, two dates.) Progress, not perfection!

"No, i did not sleep with him."
That could have been part of the problem. Maybe he thought you were just becoming friends?
I know occasionally I've been unsure whether I was going on a date with a guy, or if we were just "hanging out."

9 YEARS YOUNGER???? Cougar!

You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have - The Facts of Life!

Look on the bright side!

Miss Thistle said...

I agree with Timmy. It could have been a total nightmare time with him or no dates at all...at least you had fun, right?

The other bright side is OMG TORI ALBUM THIS YEAR!!!

I find that the relationship oriented men that I date, I usually find at my church group, at the museum, at the library, on walks with my dog, and volunteering with the seniors.

That's just been my experience.

Good report card, you can move on to the next grade ;)

Riss said...

Awwww he was just a baby!

I can't even date someone one year younger than me.

It seems at least that he liked you and had respect for you - otherwise he might have just disappeared. who knows? If things don't work out with the guy he's seeing, you may be able to rekindle things.

YJA needs to shut it.

He's being a bitter lonely valentine.

Phronk said...

Jesus, how old are you? I figured you were in the age range that subtracting 9 from it and dating it would result in jail time.

Sorry it didn't work out, but you're a better person now and all that shit.
