Mr. Medical

So, tonight was another first date.  We’ll call him Mr. Medical.  He works at a hospital, ordering medical supplies.  Not a glamorous job, but somebody’s got to do it and it pays the bills.  Sounds like my job!  He’s also going to school to get his AA in communications.  Gotta admire that!  I tried going …

Writer to Fighter

So, you may remember Mr. Writer.  The first time we were scheduled to meet up, he stood me up.  He contacted me that night, explaining that it was phone troubles, blah, blah.  Would I please give him another chance?  Okay.  Sure.  Stuff happens.  I get that. On our second date – he was less than …

Sending Out Feelers

Okay.  So, I want to try something, but it has to involve audience participation.  I want to start a new blog.  I will name it “52 Blind Dates in 52 Weeks.” So, here’s the deal – I’ve tried internet dating.  Apparently, I have a broken picker – I seem to pick all of the men who …

The List is Growing

So, a few years back, I opted not to use the “Block” button on dating sites.  I felt it was rude and uncalled for.  I thought everyone could be handled in a kind and respectful way. I’ve realized, they don’t all deserve kindness. My “Blocked List” grows, almost daily.  I’ve blocked Spanish Class Guy, Mr. …

So Complicated!

So, this week I’ve had two men imply that I’m standoffish.  Hm.  That’s just really interesting.  Shy, yes.  Socially awkward, absolutely.  Standoffish is a new one, though. I wonder if it’s because my old phone didn’t necessarily send/receive all the messages it should have been.  Men might think I’m standoffish because I don’t respond to …

Enter Mr. Geek

And now there’s a new one.  He’s a self-proclaimed geek.  We haven’t met yet, but we both want to.  (How in the world did my schedule become so insanely busy, all of a sudden?  Oh right – the over-active, over-achieving son returned home.  **sigh** In my spare time **chuckle** I have been doing a lot of …

Magic What?!

They bustle about, seeming to know what they are doing.  Honestly, I have no idea what they were doing, but then again, I hadn’t just graduated from Med School, so I am  sure they are doing the right things.  The three young women in matching pale, green scrubs busily go about their business, doing… stuff. I wonder …

Impossible to Please

So, I was thinking about Mr. Wonderful today (duh!)  He recently mentioned that he doesn’t want me to sit around, bored while I wait for him to deal with the issues on his plate.  How sweet of him, right?  How understanding!  He said I should continue dating, and he and I can continue seeing each other. …

Well, That Answers That

So, yesterday, I found out that my brother and his wife had another baby (their fourth).  They had this baby 11 days ago.  I found out from my mother, who found out just recently. Did I mention that my brother and I are estranged?  It wasn’t any conscious decision – it just happened.  I could …

Confusing Much?!

So, I mentioned that I e-mailed Mr. Wonderful a gushy letter the other day, right?  And what was the fall out? I’m still trying to figure it out. He’s spending more time with me (which is what I wanted), but not in the same way (which is not necessarily what I wanted).  I’ve seen him …
