We're engaged!

I.T. turned out to be the one. I think I knew that from the get go. Now it's all official, and I'm so happy. I still go on a date every week, but it's now with my fiance. :D

I have a boyfriend now. He's freaking awesome. He was my Week 11 date, and Week 12 and so on, up to Week 16 (I think that's what I'm up to now). We're Facebook official and everything. We've gone to many bars and comedy shows and dinners, we've watched all of The Office (British version), we've met each other's kids. I like being around him. All the time. He's so cute and has a cute beard and he's nice and he puts up with me, so that's awesome. I'm happy. My resolution totally worked. Not sure what else I should say. What do you want to know?

Boring blog.

Don't have much to post. I've been going out with I.T. ever since our first date. We've been to lots of dinners and bars. I guess I could go through them all and fill you in, but it might be boring. Yesterday I picked him up at the airport, we had dinner at Cantina Laredo, today we had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings, cupcakes from Buttercups, watched a couple more episodes of the old BBC The Office. I like him a lot. I think the New Year's resolution is working. :)

Weeks 11 & 12 :D

Well, my lunch date lasted until 3:15 in the morning. We met for lunch, talked and talked and laughed, and we wanted to keep it going, so rather than go back to work, I took off and we went to Stray Cat and spent the afternoon there. We had to split up to go to our respective kids, but then my mom said she'd keep my kid, so suddenly it was Friday night with no kid and no plans. I T said I could come sit on his stoop after his kid went to bed, so I did. We talked for hours. I got home at 3:15. We kissed before I left. And it was good. Last night I invited him over for porch-sitting after *my* kid went to bed , he did, we talked until about 2:00 am. I was falling asleep so I had to send him away, but it wasn't easy. So whether last night counts a date, I don't know, but we're planning on hanging out this week after I get back from Houston. Either way, Week 12 is covered. :)

Play by play!

I'm in the middle of my Thursday night date, and so far it's not going all that well! It's been very awkward and strange conversations, and he started telling me about how his ex-girlfriend was an unfit mother and did a lot of drugs. He's back - to be continued in the comments!

So I met those two guys at that one bar, and since Saturday night, they've been texting and occasionally calling me, but the funny thing is, they do it at the EXACT same time, much like Stretch and Actor did. I just spent 30 minutes on the phone with "Painter" (needed to give him a nickname) followed immediately by 31 minutes on the phone with IT. Date with Painter tomorrow night, date with IT Friday for lunch. Hopefully IT will turn into next week's date, because he is much easier to talk to, much closer to my age, and we have a lot in common. So yeah! Good times! Maybe this New Year's resolution wasn't such a bad idea, exhausting though it might be.

Weeks 10 & 11... & 12?

So Friday night I ended up going out with the guy who stood me up anyway. Long story, but it was fine - met him at the bar he and his friends wanted to go to, then made them all come to my karaoke bar, made them embarrass themselves with karaoke and made him but my drinks for being a jerk and bailing on me. Haven't heard from him since that night, no loss though.

So then Saturday night, after the derby game, I went to the after party, followed by the after after party, which turned out to be just me at a bar by myself. So I made friends with a guy there (let's call him "IT"), he seems really nice and dorky but funny, we exchanged numbers, and he called me tonight to ask me to lunch on Friday. He was so awkward on the phone - it was precious! So far so good! He has one kid, full time, so that's interesting to me. So I have week 11 all lined up!

But wait! There's more! Also on Saturday night, at the same bar, I ran into someone I met waaayyyy back on date 2 or 3, the same night I originally met Stretch. We had exchanged numbers back then and I wasn't terribly interested, so nothing ever happened. Well he decided that it was fate, so he asked me out for this Thursday night. Two dates for week 11, and if I play my cards right, I might get a second date with one of them for Saturday night too, have a date for week 12, then I can take a break! Because I need one! This crap is exhausting!
