So now that I’m back to square one with new guys I have a couple of dates scheduled for this week plus a few other guys in the hopper. I thought I’d try something new and give you a preview of this week’s dates.
Bachelor #1 is a type that I go for a lot – the arty tech guy. He makes his living in a techie field but his passion is literature. In general, I’ll go for the scientist over the artist any day of the week. As much as I love the arts and literature and music, I don’t have a lot of luck with artistic guys. But find me a guy who’s logical, detail-oriented, has a head for facts and figures AND has an artistic side, well then I go all gushy.
There is a potential physical attraction issue with Bachelor #1. He’s really tall. I’d guess that he’s the tallest guy in the room about 98% of the time. I know that most women find that attractive. And I don’t have anything against tall guys, it’s just that I’m really petite. I start to feel uncomfortable when a guy is more than 13 inches taller than me. Bachelor #1 is a few inches more than 13 inches taller than me. And twice my weight. I don’t want to get graphic here, but just imagine some of the body alignment issues we’d have to deal with as a couple. It’s not a deal breaker, but it is an issue.
Bachelor #2 is a completely different type. He’s your stereotypical NY- smartass, has his own small company on the fringe of the entertainment industry, divorced dad who couldn’t get together last Wednesday night because he was watching the debates with a room full of his liberal friends. I’ll be honest, I always think I’m going to like guys like him and frequently do – at first. I dig dads in general, as long as they’re good dads and see their kids a lot. Bad dads need not apply. Too often, though, divorced dads (divorced guys in general) want to live out a second adolescence and I’m not really interested in being someone’s ‘partner in crime’. I just want to be someone’s partner.
So those are this week’s contestants. Wish me luck.
