He held my hand during the movie, he gave me a goodnight kiss, and I'm basically in love with this guy. (Also, totally in lust. What?? I'm honest!)
He's already called to set up a second date. Meanwhile, the Lawyer (one of the set-ups by a friend) has called to set up a coffee/drinks date to get to know each other for Monday night. So within the span of 8 days, I will have had three dates with three different guys - D, WNG, and the Lawyer.
I'm trying to go into Monday night's Get to Know You with an open mind -- I've only been out with WNG on one date, and I like this guy too much to have it turn into a Crash-and-Burn situation -- but I'm already trying to figure out how to nicely tell this guy Thanks But No. Seems like a good idea to see him though, to keep myself grounded. As I said, I don't want to have a Crash-and-Burn with WNG by getting too involved too soon. This guy seems genuine and nice, and I don't want to lose him. Plus, I did tell my friend I'd see and go out with the Lawyer.
It will be fun! I mean sure, I can barely handle one guy at a time and now I'm juggling two (possibly three...we'll get to that story in a bit) but it is a bit of an ego boost to have different guys clamoring for my attentions. Plus, seeing more than one guy (if only for a little bit, as intended) can be a great way to see if the standout guy is really the standout.
Okay sure, I'm probably just trying to reassure myself that this is actually an okay thing to do. But it makes sense!
Then, of course, I'm still dealing with D. D and I met for dinner last Monday night. In contrast to my three-hour dinner Friday night, the dinner on Monday night lasted a mere 30 minutes. We had nothing to talk about. D even looked bored! He told me he wants to start hanging out more, and go to dinner again, and he's going to give me a call. I'm so over him, and it's just sort of amusing at this point. It's like he misses the relationship and what we had (makes sense) but he's confusing that with missing ME (which is not the same). We'll see how things go with him. I've tried to be open-minded to the whole being-friends-with-an-ex thing, but I just don't think it's for me. To paraphrase Samantha from "Sex and the City", he needs to channel his love for me toward his next relationship.
So it's been a crazy week! And it looks like the next week is going to be just as crazy. But I'm super excited about life right now, which is great because I was so depressed not that long ago. Things are going much better at work, which makes me feel much better about my future. The only thing that saddens me right now is this crazy-busy social life leaves NO TIME to go to the gym!! Ahhh! I'm dying here without my gym time!
Guess I just need to hunker down and really make time for it. But who wants to make time for the elliptical when I could be out and about with WNG? ;)
