Good emails for online dating milo ventimiglia and alexis bledel dating again
I have grand plans to find a cute study buddy and then seduce him. Also, I fear that my self-deprecating humor gets old. He’s been on vacation in Florida and we’ve been bbm-ing so I’ll take that as a good sign. Today, while I was ordering from the coffee shop next to my apartment I realized that the barista was pretty cute! I should have just turned around then, but no, instead I decided to set myself up for over 2 hours of lackluster, boring conversations. I did however thoroughly enjoy watching the penguins play because they are my favorite and just so stinking cute the way the waddle around and then dive into the water! I’m pretty sure that my enthusiasm for the penguins might have scared him a bit….especially when I told him about how my work has an instant message system with emoticons and how much I love the one of the dancing penguin. And then when we moved on to the polar bears I told him that they are my favorite type of bear because my teddy bear is a polar bear and he has on an argyle sweater and hat!! Note to self: do not mention teddy bears or dance like a penguin on my next date. And he hasn’t called me since, so for once I’m on the same page with someone! In other news, I have started studying for the GMAT so that I can go back to get my MBA part-time starting sometime in 2011. 84% fueled by my hope that I will meet a smart, single, attractive, man in the process. I have not been on a date since the one with the Personal Trainer (PT) last week. That crazy guy who kept calling me after our horrendous date. There is an amazing place right next to my office that has the best coffee I have ever tasted—the problem is it is .50 for 12 ounces. Don’t worry, I limit myself to once a week, but still… We had been texting every day and he was really boring me but everyone said to just give him another shot at a date since I did have fun on the first one. My first date with Mexico was to the zoo and it was a ton of fun so I was hoping that the trend would continue. Especially not call him twice in a row, in the middle of the work day. Since neither ignoring him, nor subtle ‘i’m not interested texts’ weren’t getting the point across I eventually just had to do the “listen, sorry if I gave you the wrong impression but nothing is going to happen with us. Which is where I’ve been pretty much every waking hour that I’m not at work. Some guy, 28, pharmacist IMs me and we start talking. Like if you think I am going to hop on a plane to go on a date with you, get real. Yes, I do have high standards and no, I’m not going to just settle for someone. but my sister, who has no debt and works for Goldman-Sachs, can’t get a credit card other than her corporate one. Is she actually a risk (because she has no real credit history) or are the markets mistaken? I went out with the personal trainer again last weekend. I would never in a million years call a guy 11 times when he did not return a single call. Don’t worry, I already have his application to “Beauty and the Geek” filled out and ready to go. To celebrate I went out with a few of my work friends to a Mexican restaurant for happy hour margaritas, shots of tequila, and chips and salsa. I got on the dreaded scale which I threw to the back corner in February when it rudely tried to tell me that too many happy hours, lunches out and big dinners were a bad idea—-and I’ve gained 15lbs since graduation last May. Then I was like “wtf clearly this is broken’, but when I put my 10lb weight on it and it indeed said it was 10lbs, I cried and then went to the gym. I’ve had people tell me that my standards are too high and I’ve even been called a ‘snob’ by a ‘friend’ but that was probably just out of spite because I rejected him. I know that credit markets have tightened for good reason… If however you mock me for being a ‘vale Victorian’ I will sneak out of the bathroom window. ” follow up text from me and when I hadn’t heard from him for a few days I naively believed I was off the hook with that one. He called twice Sunday (I didn’t respond), texted twice Monday (I responded with– “This week is super busy. Oh, well, lesson learned…next time I’m just going to be like “sorry, I just don’t think it’s going to work out.” Oyy. My guy friends were all super jealous that I was crusing around in Lambos and Bentelys even though that really means nothing to me. Last week I decided to take one more quick browse at Jdate and found someone actually interesting. It would just be so absolutely fantastic if I could actually like and date someone who was Jewish and a Democrat. But, alas, despite the hopes and prayers of my entire family, that just has never been the case. I think the sole reason he let me borrow it was for the inevitable “holy crap. i think i’m dead’ text that was sent 9 minutes after I finished. If you’ve never heard of my university you lose points because I worked so damn hard to get there and it’s a great school, but you’re not out of the running. Ok, now I’m just all worked up and frazzled so that’s the end of this post. Anyway, there was obviously no “thanks again, I had a great time! Ok, so I know that I handled the situation extremely wrong because I should have just been straight-up honest from the beginning, but I just get so uncomfortable with situations like that, especially because he was just so freaking awkward and I just didn’t want to deal with it. The people on it are literally the most awkward human beings in existence. Although, it was sort of fun dating the Mafia guy for a few weeks and pretending I was a millionaire. And then this morning I woke up and did the Insanity dvd that my friend let me borrow. Yes, I know my life is one that would turn a normal human into an alcoholic but after searching through my wealth of knowledge for a reason why my pants were shrinking in the dryer when I air them and being unable to convince myself that all of a sudden clothes shrink in the washer too…. At one point, I literally screamed “THIS IS INSANE”, waking up everyone within a 20 mile radius of me. I just received this message: “It says on your profile you are a credit risk analyst, so I had a question for you. If god forbid I’m still writing this blog at 40 that will clearly change, but for now, it’s fine. Have a good week.”) Called me Wednesday (I didn’t respond), texted me inviting me to a movie on Thursday (I didn’t respond), and called me twice Friday DURING THE DAY. Well, that isn’t entirely true—I think it happened once in 6th grade. Anyway, Jdate guy sent me a message and we emailed and bbmed for a few days and then he asked me out. To dinner/drinks last night and I was so surprised at how much fun I had. It would have been sooner, but I actually was worried that I was dying.
” 3) When I first went over mafia-guy’s condo a couple months back I knew immediately things were not going to work between us. I’m sorry, maybe that makes me a snob, and maybe I will miss out on a lot of great people based on their drink choice, but seriously?? I am completely Type-A, OCD, organized, list making, etc. However, due to past experience I know for a fact that whenever I like someone, they will not like me back.Here are some examples: 1) I had the absolute biggest crush on this guy who worked at the coffee shop at school for all of senior year.He bought top quality whole coffee beans and ground them fresh each time he made coffee.He also had the most amazing coffee maker and brewed each cup with such care and perfection.
I definitely secretly still have a crush on him 😉 2) DB loved good coffee just as much as I did.
