Dates 41 and 42-Fun and Kinda Fun

OK, so Date 41 was with Dig Dug. We just chilled at the house and had a couple of beers, and TALKED AND TALKED TALKED!!!!!!! Man, I really like him, and I think he's cool. He wrote me a super sweet email that said he really wanted to get to know more about me. I told him I really thought he was cool and hope we can hang out more, too. I am just being really trepidatious with Dig Dug. He's going through some complicated relationship stuff and I don't wanna get hurt. At all. I think both of us are a little timid right now, but I SUPER like him and I don't wanna run him off. Again, I'm FABU at that.

Date 42 is a nice guy, but he's older, got grown kids, etc. yet thinks I hung the moon. Still not feeling anything but good friendship for him. And we ALL can use some good friends. However, he did read on my facebook status 2 weeks ago that I was going to be at a certain bar and then shows up. It was kinda weird, so I drank him under the table, made him buy me a band t-shirt, and then take me to Waffle House afterwards. Then tonight I told him I wanted a baby. We shall see!

Date 40

Last week I had date 40 with a really nice guy. He took me out to eat at a really nice steakhouse and the conversation was great He's never been married (like me) and is a former musician, AND no kids. We had a really nice time, and I stuck to the 2 drink minimum while on the date. We've texted a few times since then and he's really really nice. I haven't heard from him in a couple of days but with the holidays and all, we've ALL been busy! Date 40 was super sweet-I didn't get "blown away" but kinda like him. We shall see.

By the way, my childhood friend saw "The Sumbitch That Stomped a Mud Hole In My Heart and Walked It Dry" at the mall last week and bragged and bragged and bragged on how much weight I've lost, how good I look, and how the men are beating down my door. KUDOS TO KG-y'all please feel free to leave her a message on my Facebook "A Long Shot at Love"! She made his ass feel like shit and made my day!!!

Dates 37, 38, and 39-What A Weekend!!!

Date #37 was with a really nice guy. He is a carpenter so I thought, "Hey, Jesus was a carpenter who could turn water into wine, so let's give this guy a try." He was really a gentleman, but just didn't crank my tractor. He did let me know that he's been off hard liquor and drugs for 3 years now. This is what I think-too much honesty too soon can be a turnoff, for both guys and girls.

Then, later on that night I saw a friend of a friend who bought me drinks, a band t-shirt, and Waffle House, so I unexpectedly had date #38 on the same night. Tonight I had date #39 with a really nice guy who took me to a Christmas party. How sad is it that in 32 years I've never had a date to a Christmas party before (wait, do junior high and high school Christmas formals count?) Anyway, I had on a gorgeous dress that I just loved and I had a great time tonight. Date #39 is now referred to as DigDug. He is really sweet and cute, so I hope to hear from him soon! YAY! Dig Dug wrote me a sweet note to say he had a blast at the party and that I looked absolutely gorgeous. (Insert hand over heart and say "Awwww.") I really like him-fingers crossed things work out!!

Throw My Hands in Da Ay-uh (& Wave 'em Like I Just Don't Kay-uh!)

I am so frustrated right now. 36 dates since Labor Day '09. While I'm impressed and tickled that I've managed to get so many dates, I'm just freaking frustrated. And I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling like this. Other ladies and my great guy friends are getting shit on, too. I'm going to take Charlie's advice and start loving with my head and not my heart-I know that's crazy, but the other night Charlie told me that when both your head AND heart agree with the one you're with, everything just clicks. Do you agree? I think he's onto something. I don't ALL the way agree, but his theory makes sense.

I'm going to start loving with my head more. Really I am. I'm tired of getting hurt. :(

Date #36-His Ass Is History!

SO, Mr. Nice Guy came over tonight all glum. When asking him why he said he doesn't see us working out because he needs "his love languages" needs met, and since I told him no sex until we're exclusive and love each other, he's all "Pouty Mcpouty-pout." SO, I'm done with him. He's the same one that sat on my couch crying telling me last week we werent' gonna work out, and when I said OK he said, "I can't believe you're not even gonna ask me what's wrong!" Ugh.

He is also the one that, when I told him I'd been in an abusive relationship, told me and I quote: "Well, I can't date someone who's been raped because they have too much emotional baggage." Then I had on a Flashdance type shirt (collar cut out, off the shoulders) one night and he says, and I quote, "That looks like a rape shirt." I'ma go ahead and say it-ASSHOLE!

This happened last week. This week he is now in a relationship with another girl, one I"M SURE he was dating while dating me because he would tell me of his dates that he was going on, which is why I wouldn't fornicate with him. So glad I'm gone. Plus my gays gave me the Gay Man Aptitude Test, which he made a 70 on. When you HAVE to give this test, it's a pretty safe bet that the guy ain't for me.

Man, confession is good for the soul!

Mancatcher Recipe

I'm going to have to try this and I'm thinking of adding recipes to the blog just for S&G's!!!!

Mancatcher Casserole

-1 lb. fresh chicken breast tenders
-1 can cream of mushroom soup (a Southern staple for ALL recipes that aren't desserts)
-1/4 cup milk
-Shredded mozzarella cheese
-Onion powder
-Bread crumbs
-Nonstick cooking spray

Spray baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Mix milk and soup in separate bowl. Cover bottom of baking dish with chicken, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, pour soup mixture over the top and sprinkle onion powder. Repeat another layer. Cover final layer with bread crumbs and drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.

I may try this next time I have a man over!!!!!!!!!!!

#35-Just Chillin'

Had date #35 with Mr. Nice Guy. We just hung out and talked. I'm still trying to figure out what to do. "Charlie" tells me to listen to both my head and heart, and if both don't agree, then it's not meant to be. Good advice to ponder. :)

Dates 33 and 34-Football and Snow Angels

Tonight Mr. Awesome and I went to watch a football game and had a blast! I like him (always have) but get so nervous when I'm around him. Then later Mr. Nice Guy came over, walked the neighborhood looking at the snow and Christmas lights, made snow angels in someone else yard, etc. It was very very romantic. But just when things start going awesome, something happens and my hairy feelers are back up. Just going to really have to do some soul searching on what I should do. I like this guy ALOT but yet things pop up that make me wonder if our relationship is going somewhere. Just confused at the moment, but I'm thinking this all day Golden Girls marathon is gonna do the trick. :)
Thoughts on how to handle this?

Date #32-Just chillin'

Just had date #32 with "Mr. Nice Guy." We just hung out at my house and he brought me soup in the cold, wet rain (insert hand over heart and say, "Awwww.") We decided to not be exclusive just yet, and to just date and have fun. I feel SOOOO much better, because for awhile I was getting "SKURRED." It's just I have less game than UNO and have NO CLUE as to what in the hell I'm doing when it comes to men. Now I'm starting to "kinda" like him a lot, and while that scares me a little, it also tickles me too. :)
