Life Without a Safety Net

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.

Testosterone and the French Kiss

‘Stop being so testosteroney!’
‘Which, by the way, is the real San Francisco treat.’
– Phoebe and Chandler, Friends

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.

Now this Guy has Potential

“We were having one of those great first dates you can only have when it’s not an actual date.”-Carrie, Sex and the City

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.

Just One of the Guys

Phoebe: We can be guys. Come on, let us be guys.
Chandler: You don’t want to be guys, you’d be all hairy and you wouldn’t live as long. –Friends

I’ve been hanging out more and more with The Friend Zone and Birthday Twin. I love just kicking back the three of us. It’s nice to be one of the guys again, I haven’t had that in a long while. It’s also nice because having the trio keeps The Friend Zone from feeling like something is going to happen with us. The only problem I’m having is I can sense the chemistry between myself and Birthday Twin.

Step into the Friend Zone

You waited too long and now you’re in “The Friend Zone”.-Joey, Friends

The same weekend I met The One Night Stand I met another guy. We’ll call him The Friend Zone Guy. He was so great. We had a blast laughing and talking that night, and I gave him my number. I made it clear in my mind at least, that I wanted to just be friends. I thought it was obvious considering I was kissing his friend (One Night Stand Guy) on the couch right in front of him. Usually when a girl is making out with another, chances are she’s just not that into you.
