Little Red Corvette

I went a few times with a man who told me if he could have any song play when he walks in the room it would be "Little Red Corvette." Now I don't want to judge but this would not be my choice. I think that should have been a red flag . . . Not that it isn't a great song just not exactly what I want to walk into. I'll be honest I forget my answer.

Best Wing Woman Ever and the Geographically Undesireable

This weekend two of my very good friends were married and I was honored to be a part of the entire event. Now I have been a bridesmaid too many times to count and I will admit to my fair share of bridesmaid mishaps usually involving a groomsman:-) This wedding was no exception I met a man in uniform to keep me company on the dance floor. I must admit the only reason I met him was because I was setting up another bridesmaid with his handsome friend. As I facilitated the couple to dance together I came across his tall handsome friend. Without too many details the night ended in my studio with one couple on the couch and another in my bed. (I would say we did pretty well for ourselves!)

The next day as I was about to drive him to the airport (after a lovely walk of shame to my car) . . . he changed his flight to stay and spend time with me all day! We had a lovely day filled with adult naps, walks in the park and milkshakes. Sadly he lives on the other side of the country so now the thought comes to mind - how to see if this could work.

When it rains, It pours

So over the past 2 weeks I have gone out with MBA guy quite a few times and reading "50 shades" didn't' help me hold out much past the third date. It didn't hurt that he has blue eyes that sparkle and dimples :) Plus he is just enough dork to be really interesting.
Thankfully no more hickeys to deal with - I was running out of scarves by the end of the week! So now I am faced with the question of do I even plan any more Match.com dates. Note sure how much energy I can put into dating other guys when I am having wonderful dates with MBA guy every week. Plus Match.com did not do so well for me last time! So far this guy has not talked about poop or tried to poop in my apartment so he is winning some points.
I think my match.com days are on hold for now. Not sure I have it in me to date more than one guy at a time.

magic #9

So now that I am back on the market these days, a good friend advised me that I must kiss or date 9 guys before I have "old guy" out of my system. So far I am at 4 and all is well.
Except for the hickeys from last night. Apparently late 20's guys need lessons in kissing and anatomy, 30 year old guys on the other hand do not need a road map.

Last night I met MBA guy for for drinks. We met a few days prior at a school event that I tagged along too. All was going well with the night, nice drinks at black bottle, then drinks at rob roy and then I SHOULD HAVE GONE HOME. Instead I went to his apartment and my neck was assaulted. Hickeys are trashy, pretty sure everyone I know would agree. So this morning after lots of cover-up application I became "the girl that wears scarves in the summer." More on this later  . . . Apparently I don't know first date expectations and/or missed that BJ's are expected . . . sad for MBA guy he was left hanging.

naughty nurse plays doctor

The past 6 weeks have been wonderful! Spending time with the new man is like no other relationship I have ever had . . . .  sometimes things just fit.  I always thought people were full of bull when they said you just know . . . what do you mean, you just know! Now I get it . . .I have never dated someone that I felt was also my friend or that I could say anything too.  Some of this is chemistry and some of it might be because we saw a comedian on our first date who joked about the "lady cock".   Once that term is out there most everything else is too:)
On friday I am headed to his neck of the woods for the weekend.  The drive doesn't bother me but meeting the kids  . . . no thank you I'll pass on that . . .no newmommy here.  :) funniest part of all of this is they are closer in age to me than him:)
 All I can picture is them tearing me apart or shooting daggers at me. This weekend will be the first time his past life will be in my face. I have spent many weeks now blissfully unaware of his former life, all the time knowing it was there but not really concerning me.  Friday it will all become real . . . and hopefully this will make us closer.
I have found that it is a fine line dating a man with a past.  At first I did't want to know anything but now that I am falling harder everyday I feel I need to know more. The question is how much is too much? I had to stop him in conversation this weekend because I was getting too much info and thinking the ex is crazy. I think that is the limit of what I need to know.

And away we go...

This week my mom comes to town and so does my new "special" friend from the other side of the mountains:-) Now individually I am really excited to see them both but the question is do I introduce them. East mountain man and I discussed it tonight and still not sure what to do . . . he confuses me sometimes saying the distance is good right now . . its a 2 1/2 hour drive to see each other . . . .but yet asked if I want to go away for a weekend this summer with him to SF . . . he also commented that he is only a year and a half out of a long relationship so taking things slow at this point would be good.  Hmmm so to introduce to my mother or not is the question? He clearly does not realize that my mom already knows about him and that I am really into him or else he would not have suggested I introduce him as a friend . . . . really I think he may have a few things to learn:) So still undecided on one hand my mom is pretty chill and could sit and chat to just about anyone  . . .  on the other hand I'm not sure if we are there yet . . . .although if I decide to travel over the river and through the mountains to him then I would have to meet his kids . . .as a "special" friend 
1. because they are not children and 2. because they are not stupid. Decision, decision . . .  it would be a much easier decision if I had started to be so into him after this weekend. . . . 
So after all this talk tonight I'm trying to decide when to ask him to be my date to a wedding in September in hawaii .  . . . I'm figuring I have until the invitation arrives . . . which will be in a few weeks.  . . . . This dating an older man is amazing but not as easy as the poopers:-)  NN

celebrations

This weekend I had my 3rd MEGA date with the doctor and had an early birthday celebration with him. I'm sure I can find him a better nickname:) All of our dates have been marathons of hikes, dinner and shows or in this weekend case a trip to the solstice festival. Unfortunately we missed the naked bike parade but had a great day!

So dating an older man on my birthday this year has led to a few changes. First I'm pretty sure I won't be sneaking behind a bar to or the bushes because I drank too much this year on my birthday. The past few years I have spent my big day with some great friends and probably spent the next day not feeling so great but had lots of great stories to laugh at :) This year included a few glasses of wine and a wonderful date.  Not quite sure how I feel about the new adult me but so far it is fun so I'm going with it!

The doctor is a funny man most of the time and has some interesting habits that remind me of the mother in St.Elmo's fire who whispers bad words.  Multiple times over the weekend he whispered words that he did not think he could say . . . and they were not all swear words. It was pretty funny and cute.  He is pretty much my kind of guy so far . . . picking out 3 birthday cards because he liked them all and saying things like "I picked this one because you make my heart sing." Ok so  maybe a bit cheesy but hey he didn't poop in my apartment so I think he is a keeper so far :-)

I have dated my fair share of guys and not many of them have held my interest for very long or worse I haven't held their attention.  This  one so far is keeping me entertained and interested although I'm a little nervous about the though of a trip to his house on the other side of the mountains.

Now the new question is when I go to visit him I may have to meet the kiddos who are out of high school so not really kids . Makes me a little nervous, so we shall see how the july 4th weekend plays out.  I was hoping I could say "hey maybe I meet them another time!" Not sure that would go over very well.
