The situation with The GrownUp resolved itself shortly after I posted yesterday. He emailed suggesting that we get together next Wednesday (I gave him a few days I was avaiable next week, and Wednesday was one of them.) He proposed we go see a rather popular play and meet for drinks beforehand. I said yes, that sounded lovely and so that’s what going to happen. He’s already bought the tickets. Why he didn’t reply for a couple of days and whether or not he’s seeing someone else, well, that stuff doesn’t really matter right now. Heck, it’s only our second date. I might still find out something horrible about him that’d make me never want to see him again (like he talks during plays).
In the meantime, I have my third date with The Musician tomorrow night. He has a pretty intense schedule (which I can totally adapt to if we work out – I’ve adapted to worse) that makes weekend night dates pretty hard for him. Sundays are his best night. I was planning on sending him an email sometime yesterday suggesting that I take him out to one of my favorite places. It’s a few blocks from my apartment and I tend to take guys there for dinner the night I am thinking I might want to bring them back to my place for the first time. Go ahead and read whatever you want to into that fact.
But then I got an email from him early in the day saying that he would like to cook dinner for me at his place. Now, in my language that means, “I’d like to see you naked”. Which is cool – we’re both thinking the same thing. But I was thinking my place and he was thinking his place. I have to get up and into the office early on Monday and there is no way I’m spending the night at his place and then rushing home before work to change, etc. I guess I’ll just play it by ear. I haven’t done the, ‘leave a guy’s place in the middle of the night thing,’ in a long time. Not really looking forward to doing it again. It’s so 1986/About Last Night. OMG, I just realized that some of my readers were in elementary school in 1986, others weren’t even born yet. Yikes.
