I’m supposed to have first date tonight with the guy I had to cancel on last week because I was sick. I was really excited about going out with him. That’s pretty unusual as I try to keep my excitement to a minimum prior to first dates. Hopeful-yes, excited-no. I figure it’s better to be pleasantry suprised than disappointed and so if I let myself actually get excted over some guy I’ve never met there’s a pretty good chance I’m going to be disappointed.
But I did it. I let myself get excited. For a lot of reasons. The biggest being that I was just happy he seemed like someone I’d really like and I was ready to really like someone. I felt like I’d let myself waste a lot of time being annoyed with Mr. Potential and I was ready to really like someone.
But in the last few days me and this new guy have had some email exchanges that have me rethinking him. That have me thinking that maybe I don’t even want to go out with him. Instead of coming off as a confident, charming, smart guy he’s starting to sound like a bossy, arrogant asshole.
I’m even thinking I might cancel tonight’s date. You know, follow the advice I seconded last week and go with my gut. My gut is saying this guy might be trouble. I really don’t need any more trouble. Really.
