I know, I know… you’re all dying to read the second part of Skye’s story. Sorry, you’ll have to wait until next week.
In the meantime, back to me. And my silly dating life. So remember the younger man? He’s still kinda, sorta in the picture. We had plans for last week. But then I was feeling awful and cancelled at pretty much the last minute (I kept hoping the medicine I was taking would magically work, as I really did want to go out). He was cool about it and continued to text regularly, though not every day. And I continued to reply, though not immediately, ’cause I really hate the dating by text thing. Btw, I called him to cancel the date and made a point of saying how much I prefer the phone.
Anyway, he texted this morning to see how I was doing and to see if I was up to going out tonight. Which I am. Up to going out tonight. And I am. With someone else. I have a date (first date, details sometime next week, I guess).
So I said I’d like to see him, another time this weekend.
Honestly, I’m not really looking forward to it. I enjoyed the few dates we had. But the momentum is totally gone. And momentum can really make or break a new relationship. It’s been over 2 weeks since our last date. At this stage (between dates 3 and 4 with someone I’m just not sure about) that’s too long.
There’s a part of me that’s hoping he’s making this date just to break things off in person. I can’t imagine why a man in NYC would do that after just 3 dates, but some people are really old-fashioned, that way.
And me, being me, I’m going to follow-through and go on the date. Even though I’m not really feeling it. Because I hate the fact that this is someone who’s been nothing but wonderful to me and I’m feeling like I don’t really care one way or the other about seeing him again. But I can’t fix that. I can’t make myself feel something for him.
In other news, I had a pretty awesome date the other night. I’ll write a little bit about that, soon. But not too much. I don’t want to jinx it.
