People often refer to older single's as 'leftovers.' Well, I am no leftover, nor do I deserve to settle for someone that is.

Number 14

If at first you don’t succeed…beg. Just as I was feeling once again that I was at the end of all possibility, a new door or two opened up to me by way of the ever popular blogging world! Remember how last week I guest posted on the coolest blog ever?? For those who don’t know me, just know that I am rather sarcastic. As a result of my silliness and sarcasm, I decided to add a post script to the bottom of my long lecture on relationship advice. Did you see it? Yes, I resorted to begging. This particular blog has a rather numerous following and I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try and sell my soul for a minute to get another date. So, the post scrip read something like this, “ps…If you know any single guys in their late 20’s to early 30’s ish, with their normalicy still in tact, feel free to send them my way. As it turned out, three people did feel free…and bless them!

Number fourteen who is nameless in every way because I can’t really think of a name for him yet, called me on Monday evening. One of his female relations was kind enough to hook that up. Anyway, we chatted for a few minutes and he seemed like a kindred soul with a sense of humor, so I was pleased. Later that night, after a most exciting ward outing at the ice skating oval (that’s right…we had an ice skating activity…and I was AWESOME thanks to my practice!!), I took a couple of my friends home downtown and then talked to Mr. Fourteen on my way back home for a few minutes. The next day we texted a little bit and I found that he could be good at texting and still had a sense of humor. Whew! What a relief! We talked about getting together soon and tentatively made plans for the next day or Friday. Wednesday rolled around and turned out to be the day. He couldn’t wait to meet me any longer! Haha…just kidding, he didn’t say that, but it is to be expected of course! ;)

It had been a long day for me and we ended up getting together a little later on in the evening. We had a hard time coming up with something to do (I know…I’ve probably lectured about this previously, but I just wasn’t liking any of my formerly listed ideas at the time). Finally, we decided to hang out at his house, so I headed out in the rain to find his place of abode. It was easy to find and refreshing to walk into a man’s house that didn’t smell like boy and was actually very clean. Impressive! We decided to head out for some food first thing. As we were trying to decided what would be most delicious, he suggested a Thai place nearby. Are you serious?? Thai food is one of my favorite foods and very close to my heart! :) The place did not disappoint. It was so delicious! I can’t remember the name of it but it was on State Street near 2100 South. Go there. You will not be disappointed either.

We talked easily through dinner and on the way home he played some of his favorite tunes for me. His wide array of musical genres and styles was also impressive. When arriving back at his house, he showed me the music video to one of the tunes which is my new favorite song for sooo many reasons. I had heard it before but forgotten it for some reason. Anyway, you can check it out here! Since he had hooked up his iphone to the t.v., we watched some upcoming movie trailers using one of his apps. It was kind of cool. I don’t own such things but it was fun to just chat a little and get to know each other. Before too long, he was tired (I was putting him to sleep as is my usual custom with boys….) so I went home. He gave me a hug and sent me on my way. We texted when I got home and that was that.

About the night…I’m not sure what to think. If I were him, I probably wouldn’t want to hang out with me again. I felt like I was really boring and LAME SAUCE! I hate it when I meet new people and then get all shy. I’m not usually like that. I’m pretty outgoing, fun, crazy, weird, and yeah…all of those things again! So, I don’t think I was very impressionable, but…that is okay. You can’t change the past and you are who you are. Sometimes I AM shy. I guess that’s why it’s always good to keep the door open for a little while and give people chances huh? This is a lesson I am learning. Remember last year when I didn’t? See, I’ve come a long way already. Now I just need a chance…or a door…to keep open. Hmmm….

What?!? Holy cow, that's awesome! I had my doubts that a real date would actually come from those comments!

So, let me know if you go out again.

Livin it up said... was I because like 99 percent of set ups, don't ever happen. Why? Cause the guy usually doesn't call. And...I wouldn't count on it. I have a few other ideas though.

That's so cool! So maybe you should invite him to do something with you--like just to hang out with a bunch of your friends for a game night or something. That way you could see him again and he'd have the opportunity of seeing you in a setting where you're more likely to be your outgoing self rather than shy self! Remember, guys like to be pursued, too, sometimes! I've learned a lot about that from Lance. I think I told you that before--how he said most people think guys are totally confident and cocky, but when it comes to women, many single guys are actually totally insecure and unconfident so it could go a long way for the girl to show continues interest. I guess it's hard to figure out sometimes--every guy is different.

Thanks for the advice! I usually do pursue a little when I'm interested cause I just can't help myself. I think for now though, I will just see what happens with some other possibilities. I've got a few other guys in the works so I'll keep you posted! :)
