Dates 29, 30, and 31-Sunny Skies with a Possibility of Awesomeness

I had 3 dates with a really great guy this weekend. 1, 2, 3! We had a great time and I REALLY like him. I want us to have fun and get to know each other. I am a little trepidatious though because I don't want to get hurt or hurt anyone. Holy Grail really broke my heart and while I know that wasn't his intention, it still happened.

#27 and #28-Having Fun in H'burg

Today I met my childhood friend for lunch today and had a blast! He is SOOOOO SWEET! We gotta find him a good woman-he is awesome, and if he wasn't like my brother I would've married him years ago (however, at lunch today we swore that if we weren't married by 40 we were taking the plunge together. He's my backup!)

Then tonight I had coffee and quite an adventure with my new awesome friend "The Hammer." He is supa smart, supa funny, supa cute, and supa sweet!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes it takes you going out with really AWESOME, FABULOUS guys to see that the ones you had gone out with and thought they hung the moon weren't really "up to snuff." PTL for that!

#26-Margarita Man

So, tonight I had a quick date with a guy who's in the restaurant business. He even let me meet his son, which was really cool. I had a margarita and his little boy said, "I want some of your drink" and the guy told him it tasted like beer! His son said, "Oooh yuck! I don't want any then!" MM was REALLY pushing me coming over to his house tonight and us hanging out this weekend. Like SUPER pushing us to hang out, then asked me why he was on a "probationary period." HUH? This may get interesting.....

Date #25-Mr. Awesome & Racy Racists

Tonight, even though I am knock knock knockin' on death's door with "the crud", I still mustered enough strength to drag my corpse-looking tail on a date with a guy that I've known for awhile. He is Mr. Awesome-college educated, former college football player, good looking, and just off the charts precious! We've been friends forever but I've secretly had a huge schoolgirl crush on him. We had a great time, as always, and have swore to hang out at least once a month. YAY!!!!! More dates to blog about!! :)

Last night I talked to a guy for the first time and the 3rd question outta the gate was, "So, you ever date any niggers?" "No," I replied, "and what a coincidence I don't date RACISTS either!!!" Jackass!

#24-Four is NOT The Magic Number (DUI Guy)

It was bound to happen. All this dating guys that have the same names has surely got me in trouble. I met a guy awhile back that told me, in his opening email to me, that he's had 4 DUI's since JANUARY (it's now NOVEMBER!) When he called the other night, I thought he was someone else and booked the date for tonight, only to REALIZE AFTER WE HAD TALKED that I was indeed going out with DUI Guy.

I summoned the nerve (and chugged plenty of TheraFlu since I have walking pneumonia as well as jam out to some Stones) before the date to get myself "prepared." I didn't know what would await for me when I arrived at the restaurant we were to meet at. DUI Guy showed up, and we had a great dinner. While he is very nice and just a good ol' boy, his tales of not only 4 DUIs in year, but his twice-failed attempts at rehab as well as his FOUR FAILED MARRIAGES, has me thinking that maybe he just ain't "the one." While he's telling me about rehab he is drinking copious amounts of alcohol, to which I"m thinking "I"m so glad I drove here." He also tried to get me to come to his house, which I told him NO because I do that on first dates. Then he kind of got offended that I turned him down. I told him a REAL LADY doesn't chase after a man (and we don't.)

In the middle of the date, IN THE RESTAURANT NO DOUBT, he comes up besides me and says, "May I?" and tries to kiss me in public! "Oh no!", I said. I have to get to know you (i.e. date you for a long time) before any PDA is shown on my part. After the date, he walked me to my car (which was nice) and pecked me twice. Then, AS SOON AS I GOT HOME, my phone is blowing up. It's him with a gazillion questions: "What time are you coming over here tomorrow?" "Do you like me?" "Why couldn't you come over tonight?" "When am I going to see you again?" "When are we going deer hunting?" I nicely told him that I had plans on Saturday (which I have already made before he and I went out) and that I couldn't, but that maybe soon we can get together. He says, "This sounds like a fuckin' blowoff." I told him it wasn't, but that I really had to go because first of all I am SICK WITH PNEUMONIA and am ready for bed.

Let me say that DUI Guy was very funny, a good ol' Southern boy, and we hit it off awesomely. However, he is too damn needy! He is looking for love RIGHT THIS MINUTE. He's not interested in courting/dating, nothing. I think if I told him I wanted to marry him tonight I'd be a newlywed.

How do I handle this? I did tell him I wanted to go deer hunting on his property because I do love to hunt, but damn, while I'm picking out hunting trails will I be picking out china patterns, too?

Mawmaw's Bowl and Mixed up Feelings

So, I came home today to find my bowl that Holy Grail Asshole borrowed on my front steps. I was expecting a note of some sort (you know how "romantical" we Southern women can get), but alas, there was nothing there but the beloved bowl. I am not calling him to thank him for bringing me the bowl, since it was ME that prepared that food from scratch (do you ladies know how hard it is to make stuff WITHOUT a box? Lord Jesus!) and that I'm the one that should be thanked. But that'll never happen.

This is my last rant about Holy Grail. I'm moving on to greener pastures. And I'm glad I had so many of my friends and family praying about him and I because it didn't take long for the Lord to show me "he ain't for you, Nat."

I do have a semi-date tomorrow night that I can't WAIT to blog about-this guy seems like he's hysterical, so I'll have LOTS to write about!

A Long Shot At Love Just Got SHOT DOWN!

So, after a great date with Holy Grail on Sunday, I hadn't heard from him since then, and started to get a little worried. From the day we met we've talked every day, so not hearing from him for a day or two made my hairy feelers come up. So, today I just sent him a text telling him Happy Veterans Day (he served in Iraq) and if everything was OK with us since I hadn't heard from him. Via TEXT MESSAGE this is what he tells me: : "Well, I just think we may be looking for different things. I just want to see someone I can see every once in a while (that's code for sex.) I don't really wanna be in a relationship. Also, I'm pretty sure I'll never get married again. It's only fair that you know that. "

Here are my issues: Don't get on a dating service and SAY you're looking for a "soulmate" if that's not your intentions. It's misleading and you're misrepresenting yourself to others who truly are looking for love. Second, Holy Grail told me he likes me and wants to take things slow. I've played it cool and let HIM doing the pursuing. I told him from the first date that I was looking for something long term, so he knew this up front. Plus he seemed to infer that he was looking for long-term love as well. GRRR!!

This is the advice I need: he's got my grandmother's bowl that I put some leftover food in from Sun. night for him to eat. He said he'd give it back. How do I go about getting it back? Also, how should I respond? My dating panel of experts (Dean, Charlie, the BAM Girls, and The Unholy Trinity) are telling me to get the bowl back and be nice (which, of course I am). What else should I do? Advice is super needed. I'm just so hurt but in a way glad it all came out in the wash. Ya know? Looks like my blog is back on!!!!

#23-Jambalaya, Crawfish Pie, Filet Gumbo

I had an amazing date with Holy Grail. I am in super heavy like with this guy. I'm smitten. I cooked for him and he ate it and DIDN'T DIE-WHEW!
Y'all just pray for us that we take things slow and hopefully develop into something more. :)

Douche Canoes and Ghost Hunting

SO, this guy asks me out for Sat. night. Even though I am really digging on some Holy Grail, I feel like I still need to date. I told him we could meet at 5 for our date, but that i'd have to leave around 8:30 because a group of us are going ghost hunting. Ladies and gents, this guy WENT OFF on me! Here are some of the texts he sent me:

"So, I see how it goes. I just went from being your baby to buddy." (First of all, I HAVE NEVER CALLED THIS GUY "BABY" BEFORE-EVER!!)

"How could you make plans after your date with me? That is fucked up. I want you and your undivided attention. How could you just drop me for some bullshit like ghost hunting?" Um, hun, you're about to see how I "drop" folks.

This is after I talked to him on the phone FOR THE FIRST TIME. It's none of his damn business what I do after our date is over with. NONE! He's got control issues and thank GOD he showed his true colors up front. What a douche canoe.

What The *&#$ Did You Just Ask Me?

So, I met this guy online awhile back-he "seemed" nice so I gave him my phone number. Now granted, I've never seen this guy in person. I told him I was home sick and I swear on a stack of Joel Osteen devotional books he says, "Hell yes! Having sex with someone who's got fever is awesome because it's SO HOT DOWN THERE. Where do you live? " I thought he was joking but was DEAD ASS SERIOUS.
A "hope you feel better soon"would've sufficed. What a jackass!!! I totally told him to F**K OFF, too!

#21 and #22-Bone Collector and Holy Grail

I had a date last night with a very sweet archaeologist, but the whole time I kept thinking about Holy Grail THE ENTIRE EVENING. I ended the date as soon as I could because I just couldn't quit thinking about him.

Tonight I went out on my 3rd date with HG, and we had a great great great great time. We are taking things slow and I'm loving that someone is wanting to "court" me. What a crazy concept. He is amazing. I hope I don't scare him off!

Whew!! Now I Feel Better

I heard from Holy Grail last night-he sent me a couple of texts! Whew! I really like him and am going to play it cool. I don't want to scare him off (again, I'm fabulous at that) but hope we can see each other again. And I've been thinking, if he's not into me, I know there has got to be someone out there who is, so quit SWEATING over it!!

Date #20-Holy Grail

So, I had #20 with Holy Grail. We had an AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME time! I really really really like him, too. Did I tell you that I really like him?

So, yesterday HG tells me that he wants us to take things slow, that he doesn't want to rush into anything, and I agreed to this because I too, don't want to jump the gun too seriously. HG also told me that we would definitely see each other again because he did want to see me. Today, I have heard nothing from him. Nothing. So now, I don't know what to do. I'm afraid I've scared him off somehow (I'm really good at scaring guys away.)

My team of dating experts have told me to lay low for awhile, let him come to me, so that's what I'm going to do. No contact for a few days. But, after a few days should I contact him? I hate this shit!!! UGH!

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.
