Ted: I’m crazy about you. I think we should be together. What do you say? Robin: Yes. No. I don’t know. Ted: Those are the 3 options.

Yesterday was my third date with The Potential Guy. We had talked Friday and then again Saturday. Even our phone conversations are easy going and light hearted, just like him. He came up with the idea of hiking, something I love to do. You know how after you hook up with someone and then see them again there is that awkward moment? You wonder, are they going to kiss me to break the tension or are we going to pretend we didn’t hook up and act normal? Do I hug him, do I touch him, or do I just stand there like an idiot and grin? Well he fixed that tense moment by hugging me and then giving me a huge kiss. We held hands on the way to the park, and all along the path we hiked. We had great talks, and we kissed and cuddled.
Monica: So, can we still be friends and have sex? Richard: Sure, it’ll just be something we do together, like racquetball. -Friends
I was pretty smiley all day Thursday after my date with PG, but I was trying to snap out of it. I was freaked out about liking someone too soon, and about getting attached. So I went over to Friend Zone and Birthday Twin’s house and made the boys dinner. It was good to be distracted, because already I was hoping Potential would call me. Birthday Twin gave me a backrub and I attempted to put Potential out of my mind. Friend Zone had told me in an earlier phone conversation that it was ok to date Birthday Twin if I wanted. He said he could tell there was chemistry between us, and he wouldn’t stop it. I thought that was big of him, but I couldn’t help feeling a little bad. I didn’t intend to do anything with BT, but the wine went to my head. One minute we were relaxing and talking, the next thing I knew we were in his room kissing and cuddling.
When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary? -Carrie, Sex and the City
Last night I went on my second date with The Potential Guy. It’s funny-he looked even more good looking than he did when I first met him. I noticed that his eyes are brown but they are circled with green. He just has this interesting look that made me happy he was taking me out. The thing I like the most so far with him is how positive his energy is. He just makes me laugh and grin the whole time we’re hanging out. I forget to be nervous, I forget anything but having a good time.

At a game night with friends last night, I met The French Guy. He was sweet, kind of cute, and smart. He flirted like crazy with me, and I thought it would be fun to go out with him. I was determined not to make the same mistakes I always do with guys. I find a great new guy, and I fixate. I don’t see what else is out there and date around, keep things casual. That way I’m not devastated if the guy doesn’t want more.

So after the Hooded Sweatshirt Guy debacle, I was kind of put off on going on a date. So Friday night I went out with a girlfriend for drinks and tried to put dating out of my head. We went to a local Irish pub and ran smack dab into Hooded Sweatshirt Guy. What are the odds?? My girlfriend ended up ditching out early, and I was still buzzed and it was only 10, so I stayed. I figured if anything I could have fairly ok conversation with HS for awhile before heading home, bummed and dejected.
