I arrived at the restaurant we agreed to meet at, but because I was nervous and worried about parking, I got there about 20 minutes early! I sat in the car for about 10 minutes, but because it was looking like rain, I went ahead inside. We agreed to meet at 5:30, and around 5:40 I was still waiting for him and getting more and more antsy (and annoyed). I looked down and saw that I had missed a call and had a voice message. It was him calling to say sorry but he was running a "few" minutes behind. Unfortunately, he didn't show up until 6:00. Ok, 30 minutes late is not cool, on any planet. I almost left. I seriously did. But he came walking in right as I was about to walk off. But, I blew it off and thought whatever...I might as well make the best of it. And he did apologize. Said something at work came up at the last second. I understand that, it does happen to me too sometimes. Still...
We sat at a booth and ordered drinks and just talked. He was sweet and kind've cute but I knew right off the bat I wasn't interested.
The biggest problem was unfortunately the age gap. He spent most of the time telling me funny college drinking stories about him and his buddies. He mentioned on more than one occasion about this girl or that girl that he dated. He even told me about a "no pants" party that he and his friends had one night after a wedding. I'm sure it was funny and I'm sure ya'll had a blast. But I'm not looking for a frat boy.
He kept ordering beer after beer, and telling story after story. He never once asked me a thing about me. Finally I ordered a water and said I had to call it a night. He looked crushed, but at that point I was in torture. I couldn't take another drunken frat party story another second.
He walked me to my car, the whole time trying to get me to stay a little longer. I felt bad but a lie rolled off my tongue. I told him I had to pick up my mom and dad from the airport really early. He said oh yea, where are they flying from? Me: Ummm..."Alabama?" I guess he bought it. I gave him a hug (this timem on purpose to avoid anything else, lol) and quickly jumped in my car.
He's already texted me twice today telling me how much fun he had and what am I doing tonight. Should I email him and just tell him politely that as sweet as he is, that I don't think we are compatible? But hey...even though I'm not interested, apparently the Cougar thing works for me! hahaha At least it was an interesting experiment. Ha! Next up Clemson Tiger maybe? We'll see.
Oh today, I stopped by Publix and picked these up to cheer myself up! (don't look at the unfinished paint job in the background though! That will be fixed by Monday)
And one more note. Remember my Remington Emi Hair Dryer I bought to curl my hair? Well I'm still loving it. And here's why: This is a picture of my hair after being slept on AND after going for a run at the park this morning! (I know, gross.) But seriously, it holds the curl amazingly well.
Hope ya'll are all having a great weekend!
