Real stories about dating and relationships in New York City. Truth is more interesting than fiction.

Mr. Nicepost

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I told Saturday night’s date about this .  I didn’t just say, “I have a ” or “I’m a dating blogger”.  I gave him the ’s name and then reached into my bag and pulled out one of my business cards and handed it to him.

And yes, I’d been drinking.  I’d only had one drink but it was superstrong and so I was pumped with liquid courage.  Not that I’m sorry I did it.  Not at all. I’m happy about it.

Anyway, as you can probably imagine, I was a little obsessed today with the idea that maybe he’d read what I’d written about him.  I mean, if some guy told me that he kept a blog, I’d be checking it to see if he wrote about me.  But I didn’t want to ask.  That would have been too weird.

Then, just when the curiosity was about to get the best of me, he added, at the end of email (we’d been exchanging emails regarding our plans for later in the week). “And, just in case you’re wondering, nice post. ;-)”  Thus earning his nickname from here on out – Mr. Nicepost (thanks to Lostplum for the suggestion).

So, now I know.  He will be reading.  Maybe not always, but at least sometimes.  And with knowledge is power, or something like that.

8 to “Mr. Nicepost”

    Now this is a nice post! :-)

  2. MindyMom/SingleMomSays says:

    Sa-weet! I only tell guys I like about my blog, so I guess that’s a good sign!

  3. Wilmaryad says:

    Nice of Mr. Nicepost to say :)

    I showed my blog to a guy I was interested in and lost him because of a comment on my blog, too. So, showing your blog to a date can be a double-edged sword. Enjoy for now, though! :)

    I absolutely adore your blog. It’s hilarious, fun, and I can’t understand why anyone would have said anything negative about it (I read your earlier post about rude comments)!

    I’m amazed that you did tell Mr Nicepost (haha I took that the wrong way first time I read it) about the blog – you’re right, it’s really reflective of how comfortable you are with him, which is great.

    Hope you keep blogging, even if he is reading!

    Best of luck with Mr Nicepost :) can’t wait to read more.

    It is, isn’t it? I’m still kinda in shock.
    -MindyMom
    I’ve never told anyone before. Came close. Told a guy I’d been seeing for a couple of months that I had a blog. But the relationship tanked right after that (one had nothing to do with the other).
    -Wilmaryad
    I know it’s an incredibly risky move. But if this guy is who I think he is, then he’ll be cool with it. And if not, then I don’t really want him in my life anyway. Sorry yours didn’t work out. That SUCKS.
    -Sara O’Connell
    Thanks so much sweetie, and welcome to the blog. Some people just can’t feel good about themselves unless they’re making others feel bad, I guess. Yes, I’m kind of amazed I did it too. But in a good way. And I’ve been waiting for someone to make a lewd joke about the name Mr. Nicepost since yesterday :-)
    -Shannia
    Thanks sweetie. Fingers crossed.

    Personally, as long as the guy gets to stay anonymous too then I don’t see the problem.

    Plus in reality it’s probably a real advantage for him. He’ll know how things are going and how you are feeling about things long before it would normally come out in regular conversation, if it ever came out at all.

    Oh yes, he will definitely be staying anonymous on the blog. As to whether it’ a benefit to him – well, I can’t speak to that.
